    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    ​This Standard specifies requirements for metallic body pipe fittings and connectors for use with copper tubes and stainless steel pipes and tubes and adaptor fittings for connection to other pipe materials in water supply and gas systems where the normal working temperature does not exceed 95°C, and where the maximum operating pressure does not exceed 1.4MPa.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for metallic body pipe fittings and connectors for use with copper tube, stainless steel pipe, stainless steel tube and adaptor fittings for connection to other pipe materials in water supply and gas systems where the continuous working temperature-(a) does not exceed 95ºC, and where the maximum operating pressure does not exceed 1 400 kPa; or(b) is the ambient supply temperature, where the maximum operating pressure does not exceed 2 100 kPa. Products designed for a temperature in excess of 95°C are included where tested to the appropriate temperature criteria.
