Series 728 Socket Reducer with Female NPT Submittal
Socket Fusion Female Threaded Transitions
Poly-Cam’s HDPE socket fusion female threaded transition fitting is a machined barbed transition fitting which is hydraulically compressed into the polyethylene socket fusion coupling. A stainless steel compression ring is installed to increase the pullout resistance.
- Sizes range from 0.5” to 2” NPT.
- All National Pipe Threads are made to ANSI/ASME B1.20.1 – 2013.
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:
- ASTM 1598 and ASTM 1599
- All Fittings meet ARRA requirements.
HDPE socket end: Install transition fitting in accordance to ASTM F2620: Standard Practice for Heat Fusion Joining of Polyethylene Pipe and Fittings.
Threaded Fitting: When installing the transition fitting:
- Always use pipe joint sealant or Teflon tape.
- Always use strap wrenches.
- Do not use a pipe wrench.
- Always use 2 wrenches when connecting.
- Over tightening may cause ovality or damage.
- Always pressure test for leaks before backfilling.
- Backfill and compact carefully around transition and service line to prevent ground shifts which could damage the valve and/or transition fitting.
- Manufactured of Type 304 Stainless Steel, Type 316 Stainless Steel (ASTM A249 or ASTM A269), or C954 grade Aluminum Bronze (lead-free material).
