ASTM WK60197

    Revision of F1563 - 01(2011) Standard Specification for Tools to Squeeze-off Polyethylene (PE) Gas Pipe or Tubing

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1563 - 01(2019)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.60 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK60197


    Keywords

    flow control; squeeze-off; squeeze tools: Chemical resistance--plastics; Flow control; Gas pressure systems/applications--specifications; Polyethylene (PE) fittings--specifications; Polyethylene (PE) pipe--specifications; Polyethylene (PE) tube--specifications; Pressure testing--plastic pipe/tube; Squeeze-off materials/applications; Thermoplastic pipe/tube/fittings--specifications;

    Rationale

    Currently the title and scope of F1563 calls out Polyethylene gas pipe. This is very specific to one application. Squeeze off is commonly used in water, oil and gas gathering, and other applications. But state regulators wont allow the use of the ASTM standards because they are gas specific. That is why Id like to update this standard to include other polyethylene pipe applications.
