    Abstract

    This specification covers metal insert fittings and copper crimp rings for use with SDR9 cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) tubing. All performance tests shall be performed on assemblies of fittings, crimp rings, and PEX tubing. Fittings and crimp rings shall meet the material and dimensional requirements prescribed. The sealing surfaces of the insert shall be smooth and free of foreign material. Fitting walls shall be free of cracks, holes, blisters, voids, foreign inclusions, or other defects that are visible to the unaided eye and affect the wall integrity. Insert fittings shall be joined to PEX tubing by the compression of a copper crimp ring around the outer circumference of the tubing, forcing the tubing material into annular spaces formed by ribs on the fitting.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers metal insert fittings and copper crimp rings, or alternate stainless steel clamps, for use with cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) tubing in Nominal Tubing Size (NTS) 3/8 , 1/2 , 5/8 , 3/4 , 1, 1 1/4 , 11/2 , and 2 nominal sizes that meet the requirements for Specification F876 or Specification F3253, or for use with polyethylene of raised temperature (PE-RT) tubing in NTS 3/8 , 1/2 , 5/8 , 3/4 , 1, 1 1/4 , 11/2 , and 2 nominal sizes that meet the requirements of Specification F2623 or Specification F2769. These fittings are intended for use in 100 psi (689.5 kPa) cold- and hot-water distribution systems operating at temperatures up to, and including, 180 °F (82 °C).

    1.1.1 When used with PEX tubing in accordance with Specification F876, the fittings covered by this specification are intended for use in, but not limited to, residential and commercial, hot- and cold-potable water distribution systems, reclaimed water, fire protection, municipal water service lines, radiant heating and cooling systems, hydronic distribution systems, snow and ice melting systems, geothermal ground loops, district heating, turf conditioning, compressed air distribution and building services pipe.

    1.1.2 When used with PEX tubing in accordance with Specification F3253, the fittings covered by this specification are intended for use in residential and commercial hydronic heating and cooling systems.

    1.1.3 When used with PE-RT tubing in accordance with Specification F2769, the fittings covered by this specification are intended for use in residential and commercial, hot- and cold-potable water distribution systems.

    1.1.4 When used with PE-RT tubing in accordance with Specification F2623, the fittings covered by this specification are intended for use in general fluid transport, including hydronics and irrigations systems.

    1.1.5 The requirements for materials, workmanship, dimensions, and markings to be used on the fittings and rings are also included.

    Note 1: Other code and regulatory requirements may apply to fittings for specific applications.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units which are provided for information only and are not considered the standard.

    1.3 Compliance with this specification requires that these fittings be tested and certified to Specification F877 or Specification F3253 when used with PEX tubing and Specification F2769 or Specification F2623 when used with PE-RT tubing.

    1.4 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
