1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for seamless copper tube (DWV) produced from Copper UNS No. C12200 and intended for sanitary drainage, waste, and vent piping.Note 1-Fittings used for soldered or brazed connections in drainage, waste, or vent systems are described in ASME Standards B16.23 and B16.29, and CSA Standard B158.1. Note 2-The assembly of copper drainage, waste, and vent systems by soldering is described in Practice B828. Note 3-Solders for joining copper drainage, waste, or vent systems are described in Specification B32. The requirement for acceptable fluxes for these systems are described in Specification B813.
1.2 Values stated in inch-pound units are the standard. SI values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 The following hazard statement pertains only to the test method described in Section 16.2.4 of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
