This specification covers the material, dimensional, and mechanical requirements, and associated test methods for fabricated or molded poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) gasketed sewer fittings manufactured from pipe, or from a combination of pipe and injection molded parts, or from injection molded parts that are suitable for non-pressure drainage of sewage and surface water, as well as applications involving subsurface drainage. The fittings shall adhere to specified values for outside diameter, wall thickness, socket length, and spigot length. When evaluated according to the test procedures provided herein, the fittings shall meet specified requirements for impact strength, pipe stop load support, internal stress, and branch bending. The products shall also undergo referee testing and quality control tests.
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 and test methods for fabricated or molded poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) gasketed sewer fittings to be used with piping manufactured to Specifications D 3034, F 679, F 891 or F 1760. Fabricated fittings may be manufactured from pipe, or from a combination of pipe and injection molded parts, or from injection molded parts.
1.2 The requirements of this specification are to provide fabricated or molded PVC gasketed fittings suitable for non-pressure drainage of sewage and surface water, as well as applications involving subsurface drainage.
Note 1—Industrial waste lines should be installed only with the specific approval of the governing code authority when using chemicals not commonly found in drains and sewers or temperatures in excess of 140°F (60°C), or both.
1.3 Fittings produced to this specification are intended to be installed with pipe, in accordance with Practice D 2321.
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. Within the text, the SI units are given in parentheses.
1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains to the test method portion only, Section 10, 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.
