Abstract

Deoxidized High Phosphorus (DHP) Copper tubes are frequently used in numerous industrial and household applications. To ensure the acceptability of DHP copper tubes prepared by various industrial processes, the quality of the DHP copper tubes must be evaluated. Drift expanding test is one of the best ways to do so is to examine the quality of tubes. In this paper the authors considered the mechanical properties of various DHP copper tubes manufacturing processes using drift expanding test. This paper concludes that there is a large difference in the mechanical properties of tubes with different manufacturing methods. Planetary rolling have a better expanding percentage than cast or extruded tube samples.

Keywords: DHP copper tube, drift expanding test, continuous casting, planetary rolling, drawing
