Series 735 Transition for PVC/HDPE Submittal
PVC Glue x HDPE Transition Fitting
General: The transition fitting is constructed out of PVC material, stainless steel insert, and high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. The PVC and HDPE materials are joined together by hydraulically pressing the HDPE pipe into the PVC coupling. The PVC coupling portion of the transition fitting is machined with our multi-level barb system that provides a leak-free radial compressed joint. The HDPE portion of the transition fitting is cut to a specific length and is pressed into the PVC coupling. A stainless steel insert is installed to lock the PVC coupling and HDPE pipe together thus forming a leak-proof joint.
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.
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 joint meets or exceeds the requirements of:
- ARRA requirements
- Meets NSF 61, listing PM19359
HDPE pipe end: Install transition fitting to comply with the pipe manufacturer’s recommended procedures. All field welds shall be completed per Plastic Pipe Institute’s welding procedure for butt fusion.
PVC coupling: Install the PVC coupling so as to comply with the PVC pipe manufacturer’s recommended procedures for solvent cement.
Multi-Purpose Clear Cement is a medium bodied, medium set, multi-purpose cement designed for use on PVC, CPVC, and ABS pipe and fittings: Schedule 40 & 80, Types I & II, up to 6 inches. For potable water, pressure pipe, gas, conduit, drain waste, and vent pipe. Flows freely and provides a thick layer of cement on the pipe and loose fitting joints. Apply at temperatures 40°F to 100°F. Meets ASTM D-2564
PVC coupling: The PVC coupling is manufactured out of PVC round bar and PVC hollow bar. This material is a rigid, unfilled, general-purpose-grade Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) compound with a cell classification of 12454, per ASTM D1784. (Callout designation S-PVC0111 per ASTM D6263).
