Organization: CSA
Publication Date: 1 January 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 62
ICS Code (Water supply systems): 91.140.60
ICS Code (Plastics pipes): 23.040.20
scope:

This Standard specifies requirements for thermoplastic pressure piping. It includes reference publications, definitions, abbreviations, general requirements for materials and manufactured pipe and fittings, relevant test methods, and marking requirements.

Notes:

1) The terms "pipe" and "piping", as well as "tube" and "tubing", are used interchangeably in the CSA B137 Series.

2) This Standard does not specify requirements for venting of combustion gases. In Canada, ULC S636 specifies testing and marking requirements for pipe, fittings, and accessories intended for venting of combustion gases. In the United States, UL 1738 specifies testing and marking requirements for pipe, fittings, and accessories intended for venting of combustion gases.

This Standard is intended to be used in conjunction with one of the other Standards in the CSA B137 Series to form a complete Standard for a particular product.

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

Values are given in SI units. Annex C provides conversion factors for inch-pound (IP) units.
