Sold by standard lengths only. Add length suffix code to product number when ordering—see the Coil Length Legend at right for length suffix codes. Example: a 50 foot coil of .125 inch I.D. x .250 inch O.D. tubing is product number APAF-BP-0125-0250L. Add length and "S" to denote "spool" for products with lengths available on spools. Example: a 500 foot spool of .125 inch I.D. x .250 inch O.D. tubing is product number APAF-BP-0125-0250-500S. Working pressures are calculated from burst testing using a 3:1 safety factor. Coils and spools are supplied double bagged in heat-sealed polybags and bulk packed. Contact your AdvantaPure Sales Representative for other packaging options.
