Molecularly Oriented Polyvinyl Chloride (PVCO) Pressure Pipe, 4 In. (100 mm) and Larger
|Publication Date:||16 January 2016|
This standard pertains to molecularly oriented polyvinyl chloride (PVCO) pressure pipe that is manufactured from starting stock pipe made from ASTM D1784 cell class 12454 material. The starting stock materials are then oriented through circumferential expansion to provide a hydrostatic design basis (HDB) of 7,100 psi (49.0 MPa). The pipe is primarily intended for use in transporting potable water, wastewater, and reclaimed water in buried installations. Pipe outside diameters (ODs) conform to those established for ductile-iron (DI)-equivalent ODs (DIODs). Pressure classes range from 165 psi to 305 psi (1,140 kPa to 2,100 kPa) in sizes 4 in. (100 mm) and larger.
The purpose of this standard is to provide purchasers, manufacturers, and suppliers with the minimum requirements for PVCO pressure pipe, 4 in. (100 mm) and larger, for potable water, wastewater, and reclaimed water service.
