1.1 This specification covers machine-made reinforced thermosetting epoxy resin pipe and fittings nominal pipe size (NPS) 2 in. (50 mm) through 12 in. (304 mm) diameter to be used for continuous service in condensate return lines for the specific maximum temperature and pressure covered by this specification, 250°F (121°C) and 125 psig (862 kPa).
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
1.3 The dimensionless designator NPS has been substituted in this specification for such traditional terms as "nominal diameter", "size", and "nominal size".
1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 10, of this specification:
1.5 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.Note 1-There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.
