    Revision of F877 - 11a Standard Specification for Crosslinked Polyethylene (PEX) Hot- and Cold-Water Distribution Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F877 - 20

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.61 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK62570


    Keywords

    Cold water supply/distribution systems--specifications; Crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) pipe/tube--specifications; Cycling; Failure end point--plastics; Hot water supply/distribution systems--specifications; Polyethylene (PE) tube--specifications; Thermal cycling test; Water supply/distribution systems--specifications;

    Rationale

    The purpose of this project is to potentially add a Pressure Cycling (Water Hammer) requirement similar to that of ISO 15875 Section 4.6 or ASSE 1061 Section 3.6 or EN12295 in order to show the resistance of a connection/joint against the potentially deleterious affects of hydraulic shock created by water hammer.
