Standard Specification for Solid Wall High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Conduit Based on Controlled Outside Diameter (OD)

Abstract

This specification covers material, dimensional, workmanship and performance requirements for polyethylene conduit, duct and innerduct manufactured for use in a nonpressure application with communication, CATV, or power wire and cables. HDPE conduit meeting the requirements of this standard shall be made as OD controlled solid wall, with or without internal or external ribs. The sizing shall be Iron Pipe Size (IPS). The internal or external surface may contain a coextruded layer provided the finished conduit meets the specified product requirements. The product shall be subject to elongation, impact, and ovality tests.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers material, dimensional, workmanship and performance requirements for polyethylene conduit, duct and innerduct manufactured for use in a non- pressure applications for the protection of fiber optic and power cables. Applications include telecom, SCADA command and control, highway lighting, ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) and Underground Utilities with PE conduit installed using methods such as Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), plowing and open trench.

1.2 HDPE conduit meeting the requirements of this standard shall be made as OD or ID controlled solid wall, with or without internal or external ribs in IPS types SDR 9, SDR 11, SDR 13.5, DR 15.5, Schedule 40, Schedule 80 and “True-sized” and SIDR dimensions. The internal or external surface may contain a coextruded layer provided the finished conduit meets the product requirements of this specification.

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 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 6, of this specification. 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.
