ASTM WK42573

    Work Item: ASTM WK42573 - Revision of F2164 - 13 Standard Practice for Field Leak Testing of Polyethylene (PE) and Crosslinked Polyethylene (PEX) Pressure Piping Systems Using Hydrostatic Pressure

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2164 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.40 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Rationale

    The project is to add test pressure and temperature information to the appendix. During the summer months failures are very common because temperature is not taken into consideration. I would like to add more emphasis on temperature with pressure charts etc.
