    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the materials and testing of shielded hubless couplings to join hubless cast iron soil pipe and fittings.

    1.2 Several different types of hubless couplings are available for use in hubless cast iron sanitary and storm drain, waste and vent piping applications to connect hubless cast iron soil pipe and fittings by using a sleeve-type, or some other type coupling device. It is the purpose of this specification to furnish information as to the characteristics of one such sleeve type couplings when applied to cast iron soil pipe and fittings manufactured in accordance with Specification A 888, latest revision, and CISPI Designation 301, latest revision.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 The committee with jurisdiction over this standard is aware of other comparable standard published by the Cast Iron Soil Pipe Institute, CISPI-310, FM 1680 published by Factory Mutual, and Specification C 1540 published by ASTM.

    1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, 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.
