Description / Abstract:

This specification covers requirements relating to asbestos-cement nonpressure sewer pipe, joints, and fittings suitable for use with gravity flow, intended for sewerage and drainage applications from point of use to point of treatment or disposal. It defines certain conditions of manufacture, classification, characteristics, and acceptance tests applicable to these products.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.

NOTE 1—Rubber rings suitable for use with this pipe are covered in Specification D 1869.

NOTE 2—As general guidance to achieve safe and clean constructionsite conditions when working with asbestos-cement pipe products, the procedures covered in AWWA No. M-16 shall be followed.

NOTE 3—This specification is issued for product standardization and purchasing purposes only, and does not include requirements for installation or the relationships between operating conditions and the strength characteristics of the various classifications of pipe. The purchaser is cautioned that he must correlate installation and operating conditions with the specified characteristics of the pipe.

Warning—Breathing of asbestos dust is hazardous. Asbestos and asbestos products present demonstrated health risks for users and for those with whom they come into contact. In addition to other precautions, when working with asbestoscement products minimize the dust that results. For information on the safe use of chrysoltile asbestos, refer to “Safe Use of Chrysotile: A Manual on Preventive and Control Measures.”2

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For a specific safety hazard, see 1.3.
