Polyethylene (PE) Pressure Pipe and Fittings, 4 in. (100 mm) Through 63 in. (1,600 mm), for Water Distribution and Transmission
|Publication Date:||21 January 2007|
This standard describes polyethylene (PE) pressure pipe made from materials conforming to standard PE code designations PE 2406, PE 3406, and PE 3408. The pipe is primarily intended for use in transporting potable water in either buried or aboveground installations. The standard describes 10 dimension ratios (DRs) for nominal pipe sizes ranging from 4 in. (100 mm) through 63 in. (1,600 mm). Pipe outside diameters (ODs) conform to the outside diameter dimensions of iron pipe (OD-based, IPS), to those established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), or to those established for DI equivalent ODs (DIOD).
Pressure classes range from 40 psi (276 kPa) to 198 psi (1,365 kPa) for both PE 2406 and PE 3406 materials, and from 51 psi (352 kPa) to 254 psi (1,751 kPa) for PE 3408 material.
