Rubber-Gasket Joints for Ductile-Iron Pressure Pipe and Fittings
|Publication Date:||1 January 2007|
This standard describes rubber-gasket joints of the following types for ductile-iron pressure pipe and ductile-iron and gray-iron fittings, valves, hydrants, and other appurtenances for water supply service.
1. Mechanical joint. The mechanical joint is designed for pipe in sizes 3 in. through 24 in. (76 mm through 610 mm).*
2. Push-on joint. The push-on joint is designed for pipe and fittings in sizes 3 in. through 64 in. (76 mm through 1,600 mm).
3. Flanged joint. The flanged joint is designed for pipe and fittings in sizes 3 in. through 64 in. (76 mm through 1,600 mm).
4. Modifications to push-on and mechanical joints. Modifications to the designs shown in this standard, including but not limited to segmented or special glands and split sleeves, are permissible as long as the design meets the performance requirements stated in Sec. 4.7.
