This specification covers reinforced plastic pipe and fitting system made from epoxy resin and glass-fiber reinforcement, together with adhesive for joint assembly, intended for services in aviation jet turbine fuel lines installed below ground. The fiberglass pipe shall be round and straight, and the pipe and fittings shall be of uniform density, resin content, and surface finish. Tests shall be conducted on the specimen to determine compliance with the following performance requirements: joint strength; hydrostatic strength; impact resistance; boil resistance; external load resistance; and degradation resistance.
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 a reinforced plastic pipe and fittings system made from epoxy resin and glass-fiber reinforcement, together with adhesive for joint assembly, intended for service up to 150°F (65.6°C) and 150-psig (1034-kPa) operating pressure and surges up to 275 psig (1896 kPa) in aviation jet turbine fuel lines installed below ground.
1.2 The dimensionless designator NPS has been substituted in this specification for such traditional terms as nominal diameter, size, and nominal size.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 9, 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.
