AWWA Has Published C! Updates Include: • High Performance Polyethylene Resin (PE) with Safety Factor ≥ 2. • Zero-leakage allowance for. Plastics Pipe Institute position statment on AWWA C High density polyethylene (HDPE) has been used for municipal and industrial water applications for almost 50 years. HDPE’s heat-fused joints create a leak free.

Maximum transient pressure due to the change c096 given in Table A The maximum pressure increase and decrease that is anticipated in a system as the result of a sudden change in the velocity of the water. It is the responsibility of the user of an AWWA standard to determine that the products described awaa that standard are suitable for use in the particular application being considered.

This standard describes PE pipe, fittings, and joints made from PE materials with one of the standard PE code designations as listed in Table 1. This test shall be run on samples from the pipe once per day or once per lot of precompounded black PE material, whichever is more frequent.

The flange thickness shall be supported by calculations based c096 a safety factor agreed on by the purchaser and the supplier. AWWA advances public health, safety, and welfare by uniting the efforts of the full spectrum of the entire water community.

This edition was approved Jan. Each length of pipe shall be visually examined and checked for marking accuracy and legibility. Rejoining of the separated water column typically results in a large pressure rise, which will probably damage the pipe system. The inside and outside surfaces shall be semimatte to glossy in appearance and free from sticky or tacky material.

Otherwise, examination of DR 17 with its surge capacity of 50 psig per Table B. In situations where different kinds of polyethylene piping materials must be joined to each other, the manufacturers of the subject pipe or fitting should be consulted to determine the appropriate fusion procedures.


Occasional surge pressure is usually the result of a fire flow or a malfunction, such as a power failure or system component failure, which includes pump seize-up, valve-stem zwwa, and pressure-relief-valve failure.

This standard presents cri- teria related to the manufacture and purchase of polyethylene pressure pipe to be used in the transmission of potable water in either buried or aboveground applications.

Appendix A Pressure Class Selection Per AWWA C Pressure Class for HDPE

Use of Annex A procedures may not always be identical, depending on the certifier. This will facilitate performing the bend-back test. The product shall be made from only the materials listed within this standard. Evaluate WPR as described in Sec. Peak pressure is compared with the maximum total pressure allowed during surge found in Table A This standard restricts the materials used for the manufacture of polyethylene pipe to three standard PE code designations: The PE materials used to make pipe and fittings shall contain no ingredient in an amount that has been demonstrated to migrate into water in quantities that are considered to be detrimental to the water quality.

In the United States, authority to regulate products for use in, or in contact with, drinking water rests with individual states. Users of this standard should consult the appropriate state or local agency having jurisdiction in order to 1.

PPI updated position statement on AWWA C906

Each PE fitting shall meet the material require- ments of the pipe to which the fitting will be joined. To evaluate the health effects of products and drinking water additives from such products, state and local agencies may use various c9906, including 1. The party that manufactures, fabricates, or produces materials or products.

Alternately, this is confirmed by calculating WPR per Sec. The test pressure at failure shall not be less than that which results from a minimum hoop stress value of 2, psi c096 If the sample thickness must be reduced by milling, the inside surface of the pipe shall be left unaltered.



Some variations from this format may be found in a particular standard. For each material, one pipe size from each size range shall be tested at the beginning of production and semiannually thereafter. Sign up for our free newsletter.

Molded fittings shall conform with the dimensional requirements described in the applicable ASTM fitting standard referenced in Section 2 when measured as specified in that standard. The markings shall be applied in a manner that will not reduce the strength or otherwise damage the pipe.

Working pressure rating WPR: Gravity Sanitary Sewer Design and Construction. This test shall be performed daily or at least once per production run, whichever is more frequent, on specimens prepared as described in Sec.

Updated C AWWA Standard To Publish Includes PE State-Of-The-Art Resin

The pipe is primarily intended for use in transporting potable water in either buried or aboveground installations. The average failure time must meet or exceed the specified minimum average failure time, and no less than two out of the three specimens shall meet or exceed the specified minimum average failure time.

Occasional surge pressures are caused by emergency operations. These allowances and the methods for determining pressure class are stated in Sec.

Water column separation may occur if the negative pressure is reduced to the vapor pressure of the liquid. Through our collective strength we become better stewards of water for the greatest good of the people and the environment. Colored coextrusions and pipe striping are allowed according to other provisions of the standard.
