Storm Installation Guide, Example measurement of the inside diameter with a vernier caliper and the outside diameter with a circumferential wrap tape. Resins that have higher cell classifications in one or more properties are acceptable provided product requirements are met.

A stress crack is an external or internal crack in plastic caused by tensile stresses less than its short-time mechanical strength. Silt-tight joints must be designated to pass a laboratory pressure test of at least 14 kPa 2 psi.

N® Dual – HDPE Drainage Pipe | Drainage Pipes from ADS

Soiltight joints are specified as a function of opening size, channel length, and backfill particle size. The perforations shall be cleanly cut so as not to restrict the inflow of water.

Quality control test reports shall include the lot identification. A backfill material containing a high percentage of fine-graded soils requires investigation for the specific type of joint to be used to guard against soil infiltration. Based on feedback from you, our users, we’ve made some improvements that make it easier than ever to read thousands of publications on our website.

The plant must have an approved laboratory, either j294 the company or an independent laboratory. Silt-tight joints should be used where the backfill material has a high percentage of fines.

Corrugated PE pipe is intended for surface and subsurface drainage applications where soil provides support to its flexible walls. For Type DP pipe, perforations aasuto be located aazhto the center of the cells. Unless requested at the time of ordering, test reports do not have to be filed for specific projects. The test shall be conducted on specimens taken from ground-up pieces of pipe that have been homogenized and compression-molded into a plaque in accordance to the procedures in ASTM F Only fittings supplied or recommended by the pipe manufacturer shall be used.

The fittings shall not reduce or impair the overall integrity or function of the pipe line. Density of aashgo compounds containing recycled materials should be conducted by the ultrasound technique in accordance with ASTM D since ultrasonic density is not affected by colorants and other inorganic compounds that ashto be present in these materials. Individual results, not averages, constitute failure. When blends of virgin resins are used for pipe manufacture, the final blended resin must meet the requirements of the standard.

Aasnto, Min,b mm in. Computing the minimum capacity requires determining the cross-sectional area of the pipe wall. A greater number of rows for increased inlet area shall be subject to agreement between purchaser and manufacturer. Mm294 corrugation height, hp, shall be determined by the following equation: Perforations shall be uniformly spaced along the length and circumference of the pipe.

The producer is required to perform quality control sampling, testing, and record keeping on materials it ships. This specification designation, M ; If required, the annual update may be submitted by the manufacturer to the specifying agency by December 31st of each calendar year. Resins that have higher cell classifications in one or more properties, with the exception of density, are acceptable provided product requirements are met. The slow crack growth mechanism is comprised of a crack initiation phase and a crack propagation phase.


The corrugated PE pipe covered by this specification is classified as follows: The methods of identification for each lot of material during manufacture, testing, storage, and shipment.

Class 2 perforations are for aasuto intended to be used for subsurface drainage only.

The designated quality control technicians will be responsible for overall quality control at the producing plant. Note that the number of perforations per meter in each row and inlet area is dependent on the corrugation pitch. Records of instrument calibration and maintenance and sample collection and analysis must be maintained at the laboratory.

A plan for dealing with nonconforming product, including how the producer plans to initiate immediate investigation and how corrective action will be implemented to remedy the cause of the problem. Additionally, the pipe manufacturer shall have the resin blend. The following information must be included in the plan: These fittings are installed by various methods.

All pipe shall be clearly marked at intervals of no more than 3 m 10 ft as follows: This can be accomplished conveniently by optically scanning the profile and determining the section properties using a computer drafting program. All samples must be taken and tested by the quality control technician designated by the producer.

The producer must supply to the specifying agency a written quality control plan that shows how the producer will control the equipment, materials, and production methods to ensure that the specified products are supplied.
