Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Pressure Pipe and Fabricated Fittings, 4 In. Through 60 In. (100 mm Through 1,500 mm)
|Publication Date:||1 January 2016|
This standard covers polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe and fabricated fittings manufactured for conveying potable water, reclaimed water, irrigation water, wastewater, or any fluid compatible with nonplasticized PVC. The standard includes eight dimension ratios (DRs) and nominal sizes ranging from 4 in. through 60 in. (100 mm through 1,500 mm). Standard pipe outside diameters (ODs) conform to the ductile iron and cast iron sizing system, referred to as cast iron or CIOD, and steel pipe, referred to as IPS (iron pipe size). Pressure classes range from 80 psi (550 kPa) to 305 psi (2,100 kPa).
This standard does not include injection-molded PVC fittings. Injectionmolded PVC fittings are covered in ANSI/AWWA C907.
The purpose of this standard is to provide minimum manufacturing, verification, and marking requirements for PVC pressure pipe and fabricated fittings, 4 in. (100 mm) through 60 in. (1,500 mm).
