Series 737 ID Controlled PVC/HDPE Transition Fitting Submittal
ID Controlled PVC/HDPE Transition Fitting
General: The transition fitting consists of a two-piece construction manufactured of PVC pipe and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. The two materials are joined together by hydraulically pressing the HDPE pipe onto the PVC fitting. The PVC fitting is machined out of PVC pipe.
The PVC fitting has external barbs machined on one end of the fitting. The HDPE pipe is hydraulically pressed onto the PVC fitting with the barbs. A stainless steel or PVC ring is pressed over the top of the HDPE pipe compressing the pipe onto the barbs.
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.
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 or electrofusion.
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: The PVC side of the transition fitting is manufactured from a short section of domestically produced rigid polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compound Type 1 Grade 1 with cell classification of 12454 as defined in ASTM D1784. This compound shall be white or gray in color as specified and shall be approved by NSF for use with potable water. The pipe shall be manufactured in accordance with ASTM D1785. The PVC pipe is fully pressure rated.
