This specification covers reinforced plastic pipe and fitting system made from epoxy resin and glass-fiber reinforcement, together with adhesive for joint assembly, intended for services in aviation jet turbine fuel lines installed below ground. The fiberglass pipe shall be round and straight, and the pipe and fittings shall be of uniform density, resin content, and surface finish. Tests shall be conducted on the specimen to determine compliance with the following performance requirements: joint strength; hydrostatic strength; impact resistance; boil resistance; external load resistance; and degradation resistance.
1.1 This specification covers a reinforced plastic pipe and fittings system made from epoxy resin and glass-fiber reinforcement, together with adhesive for joint assembly, intended for service up to 150°F (65.6°C) and 150-psig (1034-kPa) operating pressure and surges up to 275 psig (1896 kPa) in aviation jet turbine fuel lines installed below ground.
1.2 The dimensionless designator NPS has been substituted in this specification for such traditional terms as nominal diameter, size, and nominal size.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
