This specification covers the qualification requirements and test methods for field-assembled anodeless riser kits for use with outside diameter controlled polyethylene gas distribution pipes and tubing in sizes of up to 2 IPS. The anodeless riser kits shall be manufactured in accordance with the specified materials, physical properties, and design, which include the riser casings, moisture seals, threads, bend radius, coatings, welding procedures, and riser adapter to riser casing connections. The riser adapter to riser casing connections shall tested by tensile pull testing.
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 field-assembled anodeless riser kits for use with outside diameter controlled polyethylene gas distribution pipe and tubing in sizes through 2 IPS as specified in specification D2513.
1.2 The test methods described are not intended to be routine quality control tests.
1.3 This specification covers the types of field-assembled anodeless riser kits described in 3.3.2.
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and not considered standard.
1.5 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures), shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
1.6 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 to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
