A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the U. Department of Defense. This specification covers the test requirements, test method,and materials.

The test methods described are not intended tobe routine quality control tests, but are to evaluate theperformance characteristics of the joint. Thesenotes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shallnot be considered as requirements of the specification. It is the responsibility of the user of thisstandard to establish appropriate safety and health practicesand determine the applicability of regulatory limitations priorto use. Referenced Documents2.

Materials and Manufacture4. It shall not impart taste or odor to water in a pipe that has beenflushed in accordance with AWWA C Performance Requirements5. Current edition approved Feb. Published November Originallyapproved in Last previous edition approved in as D — 98 DOI: Box , N.

Dixboro Rd. United States The hydrostatic design basis for this jointdesign shall be established on a representative size at aminimuim test level of 10 points and h in accordance withTest Method D, except that the ends shall be restrained. Test pressure levels for establishing hydrostatic design basisshall be calculated on pipe minimum wall dimensions. If the wall is not sufficient to withstand the com-pressive force, then a rigid tubular internal stiffener shall beused in conjunction with compressive-type mechanical jointfittings.

A stiffener specified by the manufacturer for thispurpose shall be used. Dimensions, Mass, and Permissible Variations6. The minimum wall thicknessin the sealing portion of the ring groove and bell entry sectionsshall equal or exceed the minimum wall thickness requirementsof the pipe barrel see Fig.

The gasket shall be of such size and shapeas to provide an adequate compressive force against the spigotand socket after assembly to effect a positive seal under allcombinations of permitted joint and gasket tolerances. Thegasket shall be the sole element depended upon to make thejoint flexible and water tight. The gasket shall be a continuouselastomeric ring. Workmanship, Finish, and Appearance7. Components ofthe joints shall be homogenous throughout and free fromvisible cracks, holes, foreign inclusions, or injurious defects.

The components of the joints shall be as uniform as commer-cially practicable in color, opacity, density, and other physicalproperties. Test Methods8. Nocoatings, fillings, or packings, other than lubricants recom-mended in 4.

Thepressure shall then be continuously increased to the minimumshort-term rupture requirement of the applicable pipe withoutleakage. Hg for 1 h with no leakagewhile in the auxiliary deflected position in accordance with8. Rejection and Rehearing9. Under suchagreement, minimum requirements shall not be lowered, nortests omitted, substituted, changed, or modified, nor shallspecification limits be changed. If upon retest, failure occurs,the quantity of product represented by the test s does not meetthe requirements of this specification.

When specified in the purchaseorder or contract, a report of the test or inspection results shallbe furnished. Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the riskof infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. This standard is subject to revision at any time by the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every five years andif not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn. Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standardsand should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.

Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of theresponsible technical committee, which you may attend. If you feel that your comments have not received a fair hearing you shouldmake your views known to the ASTM Committee on Standards, at the address shown below.

More F The joint shall be designed to provide a permanent seal, with surfaces free of imperfections that could adversely affect its performance. Internal hydrostatic pressure and vacuum tests shall be conducted on the assembled joints under standard laboratory temperature and relative humidity conditions. The joint assemblies shall conform to the pressure rating, stiffness, and deflection requirements. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
