Bolted Sleeve-Type Couplings for Plain-End Pipe
|Publication Date:||14 January 2017|
This standard describes bolted sleeve-type couplings, reducing or transition couplings, and flanged coupling adapters (couplings) used to join plain-end pipe. Couplings may be manufactured from carbon steel, stainless steel, or ductile iron and are intended for use in systems conveying water. This standard describes nominal coupling sizes 1/2 in. (13 mm)* and larger.
The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum requirements for couplings of plain-end pipe, including requirements for materials, design, testing and inspection, installation, and shipping.
*Metric conversions given in this standard are direct conversions of US customary units and are not those specified in International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards.
