    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Interim Standard specifies design and manufacture of a PVC-U maintenance shaft (MS) comprising a fabricated or injection moulded, or both, chamber jointed to an extruded PVC riser.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Interim Standard specifies design and manufacture requirements for a PVC-U maintenance shaft (MS) comprising a fabricated or injection moulded, or both, chamber jointed to an extruded PVC riser. MSs are intended for installation in sewerage systems (up to DN 300) for transportation of sewage at atmospheric pressure and average service temperatures up to 25C. They are intended for buried vertical installation at depths up to 6 m, without buckling collapse and without exceeding long-term diametral distortion and stress limits as specified. Long-term design criteria limits are 50-year extrapolated or predicted values. Provided installation and operating conditions conform to the guidelines in this Interim Standard, life expectancy may exceed 50 years. Methods for demonstrating compliance with this Interim Standard are given in Appendix A.
