Over deze norm
1.1 This specification covers poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) Schedule 40 pipe fittings. Included are requirements for materials, workmanship, dimensions, and burst pressure. Note 1Socket-type CPVC plastic pipe fittings, Schedule 40, which were formerly included in this standard, are now covered by Specification F 438.
1.2 The products covered by this specification are intended for use with the distribution of pressurized liquids only, which are chemically compatible with the piping materials. Due to inherent hazards associated with testing components and systems with compressed air or other compressed gases, some manufacturers do not allow pneumatic testing of their products. Consult with specific product/component manufacturers for their specific testing procedures prior to pneumatic testing.Note 2
Pressurized (compressed) air or other compressed gases contain large amounts of stored energy which present serious saftey hazards should a system fail for any reason.
1.3 Fitting such as unions, flanges, special plastic-to-metal transitions and appurtenances intended for use with PVC piping are covered under specification F 1970.
1.4 The text of this specification references notes, footnotes, and appendixes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the specification.
1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.
