Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers requirements relating to non-asbestos fiber-cement non-pressure sewer pipe, joints, and fittings suitable for use with gravity flow, intended for sewerage and drainage applications from point of use to point of treatment or disposal. The types of pipe shall be shown as type I and type II corresponding to the chemical requirements. Fiber-cement sewer pipe furnished under this specification shall be designated as class I, II, III, IV, and V. The corresponding strength requirements are prescribed. The pipe shall be of laminar construction formed under pressure to a homogeneous structure and cured under natural or accelerated conditions to meet the chemical and physical requirements. Crushing tests, and longitudinal bending tests shall be conducted to meet the requirements prescribed. A hydrostatic pressure test shall be made on an assembly of two sections of pipe properly connected with a coupling to meet the requirements prescribed.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers requirements relating to non-asbestos fiber-cement non-pressure sewer pipe, joints, and fittings suitable for use with gravity flow, intended for sewerage and drainage applications from point of use to point of treatment or disposal. It defines certain conditions of manufacture, classification, characteristics, and acceptance tests applicable to these products.
1.2 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
Note 1—Rubber rings suitable for use with this pipe are covered in Specification D1869.
Note 2—This specification is issued for product standardization and purchasing purposes only, and does not include requirements for installation or the relationships between operating conditions and the strength characteristics of the various classifications of pipe. The purchaser is cautioned that he must correlate installation and operating conditions with the specified characteristics of the pipe.
1.3 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.
