Cast Copper Alloy Solder Joint Pressure Fittings
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
This Standard for cast copper alloy solder joint pressure fittings designed for use with copper water tube, establishes requirements for:
(b) abbreviations for end connections;
(c) sizes and method of designating openings of fittings;
(f) dimensions and tolerances; and
Units of Measurement
The values stated in either U.S. Customary (inch-lb.) or SI (metric) units of measure shall be regarded separately as standard. Within the main text, U.S. Customary units are given. For convenience, the SI units are shown in parentheses and in Nonmandatory Annex B. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
NOTE: Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the Standard.
For the purpose of determining conformance with this Standard, the convention for fixing significant digits where units, maximum or minimum values, are specified shall be "rounding off" as defined in ASTM Practice E 29. This requires that an observed or calculated value shall be rounded off to the nearest unit in the last right-hand digit used for expressing the limit.
Standards and specifications adopted by reference in this Standard are shown in Nonmandatory Annex D, which is part of this Standard. It is not considered practical to identify the specific edition of each standard and specification in the individual references. Instead, the specific edition reference is identified in Nonmandatory Annex D.
Requirements relating to the product manufacturer's Quality System Programs are described in Nonmandatory Annex E.
