Q&A

Q: Do you have specs for weight per foot on the 1/8 and 1/4 aluminum versatube?

The 1/8 inch is approximately .009 lbs per ft and the 1/4 inch is approximately .026 lbs per foot.

Q: Is this soft and bendable like copper tubing?

Per the tech: short answer is yes. It is very similar in terms bend-ability to copper tubing.

Q: I need to use this for fuel line. Can it be flared to seal on AN fittings?

Yes, 3003-O can be flared for use with AN fittings.

Q: The photo shows this 3003 is coiled. Can it be shipped straight?

No, but 5052-0 alum tube is soft and is sold as straight tube. Not as soft as 3003, but can be bent and flared.

Q: Oops, I found the working pressures!

Ok great, we are glad you found the info you were looking for.

Q: What is the ID of PN 03-40700? My fuel lines are 3/8 ID so I am debating between the 1/2 inch OD vs. 3/8 OD.

03-40700 is 1/2" x .035" tube. I.D. is approx. .43".

Q: Can this 3003-0 tubing be used on GA aircraft? Does it have any FAA approval paperwork?

If a maintenance/repair manual of a certified aircraft requires 3003-0 aluminum tube, then this can be used. It, like most raw materials, do not have an FAA approval, but meet material specifications, and this cert can be purchased. If required, the material cert must be ordered with the material, at the time of order.

Q: Can this tube be used as a brake line on an experimental aircraft?

This is commonly used in experimental brake applications.

Q: Which bender works best on versatube? For 90 degree bends specifically.

The Imperial 470-FH should work great, our part number is 12-01042.
