    Abstract

    This specification establishes the requirements and test methods for 1/2 in. through 14 in. multilayer polyethylene-polyamide (PE-PA) pipe, which is a two-layer pipe (PE pipe layer bonded to an inner layer of PA). It covers the multilayer pipe for use in piping applications where the permeation and chemical resistance of PA compounds may be useful to protect the PE pipe layer, such as oil and gas producing applications that convey oil, dry or wet gas, and multiphase fluids. Electrofusion and mechanical joints are typically used for this multilayer pipe.

    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. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for 1/2 in. through 14 in. multilayer polyethylene-polyamide (PE-PA) pipe, which is a two-layer pipe (PE pipe layer bonded to an inner layer of PA). The multilayer pipe covered by this specification is intended for use in piping applications where the permeation and chemical resistance of polyamide (PA) compounds may be useful to protect the PE pipe layer, such as oil and gas producing applications that convey oil, dry or wet gas, and multiphase fluids.

    Note 1Permeability and chemical resistance depends on the type of PA used. The PA layer delays but does not prevent liquid hydrocarbons effects. Therefore, the hydrocarbon chemical design factor for this multilayer pipe should be the same as for PE pipe layer—see X1.2.

    1.2 Electrofusion and mechanical joints are typically used for this multilayer pipe.

    1.3 Unless specified otherwise, all the pipe requirements in this standard are for the multilayer pipe.

    1.4 The PA layer is not taken into consideration for the design pressure of multilayer pipe meeting this specification. Design pressure rating is determined from the PE pipe layer alone—see Appendix X1.

    1.5 Units—The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.6 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in figures and tables) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

    1.7 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 6, 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.
