1 Scope and field of application
1.1 This standard specifies technical delivery conditions
for welded and sized precision steel tubes of the dimensions listed in DIN
2394 Part 1, which are made from the steel grades listed in clause 4.
Such tubes are mainly used where accuracy to size and, possibly, a small wall
thickness, a particular surface condition and specific mechanical properties
1.2 This standard does not cover:
- welded, circular, unalloyed steel tubes subject to special requirements
(cf. DIN 1626);
- high performance welded, circular, unalloyed steel tubes (cf. DIN 1628);
- welded circular steel tubes for structural steelwork (cf. DIN 17 120);
- welded circular fine grain steel tubes for structural steelwork (cf. DIN
- welded circular tubes made from steels with low temperature toughness
(cf. DIN 17174);
- electric pressure-welded steel tubes with elevated temperature properties
(cf. DIN 17177);
- welded circular fine grain steel tubes subject to special requirements
(cf. DIN 17 178);
- welded circular austenitic stainless steel tubes subject to special requirements
(cf. DIN 17 457);
- teel pipes for conveying combustible liquids and gases (cf. DIN 17172).
Subject to agreement, tubes of dimensions specified, in DIN 2394 Part 1 and
in compliance with one of the standards listed above may be ordered in quality
2 Quality grades
Tubes shall be supplied in the following quality grades: for precision steel
tubes, that do not require an inspection certificate and thus are not subject
to special requirements, grade A;
for precision steel tubes subject to special requirements, grade C.
In accordance with the stated demands of the purchaser, such special requirements
and the relevant test methods shall be subject of agreement. Table 9 lists
possible additional requirements (for grade C).
3 Order details and options
The following information shall be supplied by the purchaser:
a) the quantity, in metres;
b) a reference to this standard;
c) the quality grade;
d) the steel grade;
e) the final supply condition;
f) the outside and wall thickness;
g) the type of tube length to be supplied;
h) any inspection document agreed upon.

1000 m tube DIN 2394 - С - IG - RSt 37-2 NBK - 40 x 1,5 X 4000
Designation for 1 000 rn quality grade С welded precision steel tubes, made
of St 37.8 steel, normalized (NBK), with an outside diameter, D, of 20 mm and
wall thickness, T, of 1,5 mm, in exact lengths of 4 000 mm, produced to the
limit deviations specified in DIN 2394 Part 1, complying with the technical
delivery conditions specified in DIN 17177 and supplied with type 3.1.В inspec-tion
certificate as specified in DIN 50 049:
1000 m tube DIN 2394 - С - 20 x 1,5 x 4000 - DIN 17177 - St 37.8 NBK
Unless otherwise specified, tubes shall be supplied in quality grade A and
in lengths as specified in subclause 9.3.
The tubes shall be manufactured from electric steel or basic oxygen steel,
the melting and casting processes being at the discretion of the manufacturer.
The steel shall be cast as killed steel. If a particular deoxidation procedure
is requested, this shall be agreed upon at the time of ordering. Table 1 lists
relevant steel grades.
