Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers requirements and test methods for the qualification of factory assembled anodeless risers and transition fittings, for use in polyethylene (PE), in sizes through NPS 8, and Polyamide 11 (PA11), in sizes through NPS 6, gas distribution systems. The bend radius, steel pipe thread, steel flanges, and gas pressure containing factory welding shall meet the requirements prescribed. Temperature cycling test, tensile pull test, leak test, and constant tensile load joint test shall be performed to meet the requirements prescribed.
