Standard Roll Groove Dimensions for U.S. Standard Copper Tubing

Pipe O.D. (Column 2):

Maximum allowable tolerances from square cut ends is 0.03" for 2" thru 3"; 0.045" for 4" thru 6"; and 0.060" for sizes 8”.

Gasket Seating Surface (Column 3):

The gasket seating surface shall be free from deep scores, marks, or ridges that would prevent a positive seal.

Groove Width (Column 4):

Groove width is to be measured between vertical flanks of the groove side walls.

Groove Diameter (Column 5):

The “C” diameters are average values. The groove must be of uniform depth around the entire pipe circumference.

Groove Depth (Column 6):

The “d” is for reference use only. The groove dimension shall be determined by the groove diameter “C”.

Minimum Wall Thickness (Column 7):

The DWV pipe (ASTM B-306) is minimum wall thickness that may be roll grooved.

Flare Diameter (Column 8):

The pipe end that may flare when the groove is rolled shall be within this limit when measured at the extreme end of the pipe.
