Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the performance of shielded transition couplings using flexible PVC gaskets to join dissimilar DWV pipe and fittings above and below ground. The gaskets shall be permitted to be spliced or molded and all the steel parts shall be 300 series stainless steel excluding copper bearing alloys. Requirements for the coupling support and installation, elastomeric gasket, and clamp assembly are given. The testing apparatus and requirements for deflection test, shear test, and unrestrained hydrostatic joint test are detailed.
