|Publication Date:||10 August 1998|
1.1 These test methods cover the testing of asbestos-cement pipe for hydrostatic strength, flexural strength, crushing strength, straightness, and uncombined calcium hydroxide; they are for use in conjunction with the individual product specifications for asbestos-cement pipe.
1.2 Test methods appear in the following sections:
Section Hydrostatic Pressure Test 4 Flexural Test 5 Crushing Test 6 Straightness Test 7 Uncombined Calcium Hydroxide Test 8
1.3 Guidelines for internal and external corrosion included in Section 9 serve as an aid in determining the type of pipe which should be specified to maximize service life for a particular application.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
