    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for cross-linked polyethylene pipes for the conveyance of fluids under pressure.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for cross-linked polyethylene pipes for the conveyance of fluids under pressure. Such fluids include, but are not restricted to, water, wastewater, slurries, compressed air, and fuel gas. Fuel gas includes natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in the vapour phase and LPG/air mixtures. The partial pressure of the LPG is not to exceed 300 kPa absolute. Pipes intended for the transmission of fuel gas are hereinafter referred to as ‘gas pipes’ and are not be operated at pressures above 1600 kPa gauge.
