    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 01.06, 2017 Defines composite ribbed steel pipe, precoated and polyethylene lined intended for use for gravity flow sanitary sewers, storm sewers, and other special applications such as water transmission pipe, rehabilitation pipe, slip line pipe, and irrigation pipe where extra corrosion and abrasion resistance are required.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This specification covers composite ribbed steel pipe, precoated and polyethylene lined intended for use for gravity flow sanitary sewers, storm sewers, and other special applications such as water transmission pipe, rehabilitation pipe, slip line pipe, and irrigation pipe where extra corrosion and abrasion resistance are required. The steel sheet used in the fabrication of the pipe has a polymer coating over a metallic coating of zinc on both sides. In addition, as the pipe is being fabricated, the ribs are filled with polyethylene and then a polyethylene liner is extruded onto the interior surface.

    1.2The exterior polymer precoating provides extra protection of the steel against soilside corrosion, in addition to that provided by the metallic coating, and also provides a dielectric barrier for cathodic protection. The interior polymer precoating provides an adhesive layer between the galvanized steel and the polyethylene lining. The applied lining provides internal protection against corrosion, erosion, and abrasion. By filling the rib which has a deltoid shape (smaller at the opening in the pipe wall than at the bottom of the rib), the polyethylene is mechanically connected to the pipe wall and the polyethylene liner is then thermally bonded to the filled rib.

    1.3This specification does not include requirements for bedding, backfill, or the relationship between earth cover load and sheet thickness of the pipe. Experience has shown that the successful performance of this product depends upon the proper selection of sheet thickness, type of bedding and backfill, controlled manufacture in the plant, and care in the installation. The installation procedure is described in Practice A798/A798M.

    1.4This specification is applicable to orders in either inch-pound units as A978, or in SI units as A978M. Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily equivalent. SI units are shown in brackets in the text for clarity, but they are the applicable values when the material is ordered to A978M.

    1.5This 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.
