In the American plumbing industry, the size of copper tubing is designated by its nominal diameter, which is 1⁄8th inchless than the outside diameter. This nominal diameter does not match any other physical dimension on the pipe; it may be larger orsmaller than the inside diameter depending on the size of pipe. The American refrigeration industry uses different copper pipe calledACR (air conditioning and refrigeration field services) pipe, which is sized directly by its outside diameter (OD) and a type letterindicating wall thickness. Therefore, 1 inch nominal type L copper tube and 1 1⁄8th inch type D ACR tube are exactly the sizewith different size designations. ACR pipe is manufactured without processing oils that would be incompatible with the oils used tolubricate the compressors in the AC system.
Except for this difference between ACR (types A and D) and plumbing (types K, L, M and DWV) pipes, the type only indicates wallthickness and does not affect the outside diameter of the tube. Type K 1⁄2 inch, type L 1⁄2 inch, and type D 5⁄8 inch ACRall have the same outside diameter of 5⁄8 inch.
