This standard describes grooved and shouldered joints for ductile-iron pipe, metallic pressure pipe of iron pipe size (IPS), fittings, and other components for water service. The standard describes 4-in. through 36-in. (100-mm through 900-mm) diameter grooved ductile-iron pipe; 3/4-in. through 24-in. (19-mm through 600-mm) diameter grooved steel, aluminum, brass, and other metallic pipe of IPS dimensions; and 4-in. through 64-in. (100-mm through 1,600-mm) nominal diameter shouldered ends for ductile-iron pipe and metallic pipe of IPS dimensions.
This standard provides the minimum requirements for grooved and shouldered joints, including materials, dimensions, tolerances, finishes, tests, and testing procedures. It can be referenced for purchasing and receiving pressure pipe, fittings, and other components composed of ductile-iron, steel, and nonferrous metals for water supply service.
Major updates to this edition include:
- The table of pipe outside diameter tolerances is updated.
- Appendix A for Installation Guidelines was added.
Downloadable versions of current and historical standards are also available.
