Description / Abstract:

This specification covers the physical requirements for tools used to squeeze-off polyethylene (PE) pipe and tubing. It is limited to squeeze-off procedures set forth by the pipe manufacturer as referred to in Specification D2513 for gas pressure pipe systems.

Nothing in this specification shall be construed as recommending practices or systems at variances with governing codes and project specifications.

Where applicable in this specification, "pipe" shall mean "pipe and tubing," and "tool" shall mean "squeeze-off tool."

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portions, Section 5 and Appendix X1 of this specification: 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.
