This standard describes grooved and shouldered joints for ductile-iron pipe, metallic pressure pipe of iron pipe size, and fittings, and other components for water service. The standard describes 4-in. through 24-in. (102-mm through 610-mm) diameter grooved ductile-iron pipe; ¾-in. through 24-in. (19-mm through 610-mm) diameter grooved steel, aluminum, brass, and other metallic pipe of iron pipe size (IPS) dimensions; and 4-in. through 64-in. (102-mm through 1,626-mm) nominal diameter shouldered ends for ductile-iron pipe and metallic pipe of IPS dimensions.
The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum requirements for grooved and shouldered joints, inclduing materials, dimensions, tolerances, finishes, tests, and testing procedures.
