Description / Abstract:
This practice covers qualifying a combination of a squeeze tool,
a polyethylene gas pipe, and a squeeze-off procedure to avoid
long-term damage in polyethylene gas pipe. Qualifying is conducted
by examining the inside and outside surfaces of pipe specimens at
and near the squeeze to determine the existence of features
indicative of long-term damage. If indicative features are absent,
sustained pressure testing in accordance with Specification D 2513
is conducted to confirm the viability of the squeeze-off process.
For assistance with specimen examination, an Adjunct,
ADJF17342, is available from ASTM.
