Series 731 Transition for PVC/HDPE Sch. 35 Submittal
HDPE Pipe x PVC Pipe Transition Fitting
The transition fitting is constructed out of PVC material, epoxy-coated carbon steel, and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) 3408 pipe. The PVC and HDPE materials are joined together by hydraulically pressing the HDPE pipe onto the epoxy-coated carbon steel coupling with a compression ring supporting the connection. The PVC is pressed inside of the coupling providing a smooth flow for fluids between the HDPE and PVC. This transition fitting was purposefully redesigned for better flow capabilities.
The transition fitting shall be manufactured by Poly-Cam, Inc. Poly-Cam, Inc. shall provide quality assurance with regards to proper installation, compatibility, performance, and acceptance.
The transition fitting is designed to handle the pressure rating of the HDPE pipe with a 2:1 safety factor at 73.40 degrees Fahrenheit with a minimum 50 year design life.
Carbon steel coupling: The coupling is manufactured out of A53 grade carbon steel pipe.
The epoxy coating (3M™ Scotchkote™ Fusion-Bonded Epoxy Coating 6233) is fusion bonded to the metal. It has approvals AWWA C213 and C550.
PVC SCH 35: PVC Gasket Sewer Pipe conforms to ASTM D-3034 in sizes 4″ through 15”.
High Density Polyethylene: The transition fitting is constructed with a 3408 HDPE pipe (cell class 345454c) classified according to ASTM D3350.
HDPE pipe end
