Active Standard ASTM F2987 | Developed by Subcommittee: F17.26
Book of Standards Volume: 08.04
This specification establishes requirements and test methods for double wall, annular extruded corrugated polyethylene (PE) pipe and fittings used in mine heap leach pile aeration. It covers materials, workmanship, dimensions, perforations, pipe stiffness, elongation, joint separation resistance, quality of extruded polyethylene, brittleness, testing, and marking of corrugated PE pipe and fittings with diameters of 100 mm (4 inch), 150 mm (6 inch), 200 mm (8 inch), 250 mm (10 inch), 300 mm (12 inch), 375 mm (15 inch), and 450 mm (18 inch).
