    Abstract

    This specification covers requirements and test methods for the qualification of factory assembled anodeless risers and transition fittings, for use in polyethylene (PE), in sizes through NPS 8, and Polyamide 11 (PA11), in sizes through NPS 6, gas distribution systems. The bend radius, steel pipe thread, steel flanges, and gas pressure containing factory welding shall meet the requirements prescribed. Temperature cycling test, tensile pull test, leak test, and constant tensile load joint test shall be performed to meet the requirements prescribed.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for the qualification of factory assembled anodeless risers and transition fittings, for use in polyethylene (PE), in sizes through NPS 8, and Polyamide 11 (PA11) and Polyamide 12 (PA12), in sizes through NPS 6, gas distribution systems.

    1.2 The test methods described are not intended to be routine quality control tests.

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

    1.4 Throughout this specification footnotes are provided for informational purposes and shall not be considered as requirements of this specification.

    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.
