New Practice for Squeeze-Off of Polyethylene Pressure Pipe and Tubing for Applications Other than Natural Gas Distribution

1. Scope

The development of specifications for plastic pipe, fittings, and appurtenances; practices for joining and installing plastic pipes; test methods; terminology, systems and services specific to plastic piping systems and the stimulation of related research.
The work of the Committee may include the consideration of composite piping systems, and components which are partially plastic.
The work of the Committee will be coordinated with ASTM Committee and other organizations having mutual interests.

Keywords

isolation; squeeze; squeeze-off; compression; re-round

Rationale

Isolation of PE pipes by squeeze-off is not specific to gas distribution piping; it can be applied to other PE piping systems conveying most any liquid or gas.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
