How Do You Measure Tubing?

June 24, 2022

Are you wondering how to measure tubing? Tubing is typically measured using the outside diameter, which is specified in inches or a fraction of an inch. Pipes are measured using nominal pipe size. It is related to the outside diameter but is much different. Read on to find more information about how tubing is measured, including wall thickness. Measuring Tubing When measuring tubing, always remember that the outside diameter is not the same as the pipe size. For example, a 1-1/2’’ pipe size has an outside diameter of 1.9’’ instead of 1.5’’. For any size that ranges between 1/8- 12... View Article
