Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 April 1999
Status: inactive
Page Count: 8
ICS Code (Metal fittings): 23.040.40
scope:

This specification covers metal mechanical cold flare compression fittings with integral disc spring suitable for use with four sizes of PEX tubing that meets the requirements of Specifications F 876 and F 877. These fittings are intended for use in 100 psi (689.5 kPa) cold and hot water distributions systems and hydronic heating systems operating at temperatures up to and including 180°F (82°C). Included are the requirements for materials, workmanship, dimensions, burst pressure, sustained pressure, excessive temperature and pressure, temperature cycling tests, and markings to be used on the fittings.

The values stated in inch-pounds units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI values stated in parentheses are provided for information purposes.

The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 9, 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
