1. Scope
1.1 This specification covers hubless cast iron soil pipe and fittings for use in gravity flow applications. It establishes standards covering material, manufacture, mechanical and chemical properties, dimensions, coating, test methods, inspection, certification, and product marking for hubless cast iron soil pipe and fittings. These pipe and fittings are intended for non-pressure applications, as the selection of the proper size for sanitary drain, waste, vent, and storm drain systems allows free air space for gravity drainage. 1.2 The EDP/ASA numbers indicated in this section repre- sent a Uniform Industry Code adopted by the American Supply Association (ASA). A group designation prefix, 022, is as- signed to hubless products, followed by the four-digit identi- fication assigned to individual items and a check digit. This system has been instituted to facilitate EDP control through distribution channels, and is to be used universally in ordering and specifying product items. Those items with no EDP numbers are either new, special, or transitory and will be assigned numbers on subsequent prints of this specification. 1.3 This specification covers pipe and fittings of the follow- ing patterns and applies to any other patterns that conform with the applicable requirements given in this specification.
4. Materials and Manufacture
4.1 The pipe and fittings shall be iron castings suitable for installation and service for sanitary, storm drain, waste, and vent piping applications. The pipe and fittings shall meet all applicable requirements and tests given in this specification. 4.2 The castings shall be made of cast iron, produced by an established commercial method that provides control over chemical and mechanical properties. “Cast iron” is a generic term for a series of alloys as defined in Terminology A644 and includes gray iron as well as ductile iron. The castings shall be sound, true to pattern, and of compact close grain that permits drilling and cutting by ordinary methods. The interior surface shall be reasonably smooth and free from defects that would make the castings unfit for the use for which they are intended. 4.3 To minimize the possibility of introducing radioactive material to a melting operation, ferrous scrap, pig iron, and any recycled ferrous material shall be screened by the manufacturer for radioactivity with detection devices operated in accordance with the detection manufacturer’s instructions. Written operating, calibration, and maintenance procedures for the detection equipment shall be provided to the purchaser for review when requested. Records shall be maintained by load of these tests for a period of seven years. 4.3.1 Only radiation devices designed specifically for the purpose of screening ferrous material shipments shall be used for the purpose of conforming to this requirement. Handheld radiation detectors (Geiger counters) are not appropriate and shall not be used for the purpose of conforming to this requirement. 4.3.2 Material that is found contaminated with radioactivity shall not be used to produce products covered by this specifi- cation. 4.3.3 Analysis of castings after the time of production shall not be used to determine compliance to this specification.4.4 Foundries manufacturing products to this specification shall comply with all local, provincial, state, and national safety laws and regulations, and with the requirements of Practice E2349. 4.5 Pipe and fittings shall not be patched, filled, or welded by the manufacturer to repair cosmetic or material defects that occur during the course of manufacturing.
