Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 November 2011
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Pipes and fittings of other materials): 23.040.50
scope:

This test method covers procedures for testing precast concrete manhole sections when using the vacuum test method to demonstrate the integrity of the installed materials and the construction procedures. This test method is used for testing concrete manhole sections utilizing mortar, mastic, or gasketed joints.

This test method is intended to be used as a preliminary test to enable the installer to demonstrate the condition of the concrete manholes prior to backfill. Users are hereby cautioned that misuse or misapplication of the test criteria contained herein can cause permanent damage to the system being tested.

NOTE 1-Vacuum test criteria presented in this test method are similar to those in general use. The test and criteria have been widely and successfully used in testing manholes.

NOTE 2-It should be understood that no correlation has been found between vacuum (air) and hydrostatic tests.

This test method is the companion to inch-pound Test Method C1244.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

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.
