Standard Specification for Multilayer Polyethylene-Polyamide (PE-PA) Pipe for Pressure Piping Applications
|Publication Date:||1 November 2013|
|ICS Code (Plastics pipes):||23.040.20|
This specification covers requirements and test methods for ½ in. through 14 in. multilayer polyethylene-polyami
NOTE 1-Permeability and chemical resistance depends on the type of PA used. The PA layer delays but does not prevent liquid hydrocarbons effects. Therefore, the hydrocarbon chemical design factor for this multilayer pipe should be the same as for PE pipe layer-see X1.2.
Electrofusion and mechanical joints are typically used for this multilayer pipe.
Unless specified otherwise, all the pipe requirements in this specification are for the multilayer pipe.
The PA layer is not taken into consideration for the design pressure of multilayer pipe meeting this specification. Design pressure rating is determined from the PE pipe layer alone-see Appendix X1.
Units-The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in figures and tables) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 6, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental 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.
