Full Description

1.1''This specification establishes requirements for sulfone plastic insert fittings and copper crimp rings, or alternate stainless steel clamps for four sizes Nominal Tubing Sizes (NTS) (³/8'', 1/2'', ³/4'', and 1) of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) tubing that meet the requirements for Specification F876 or Specification F3253, or polyethylene of raised temperature (PE-RT) tubing that meet the requirements of Specification F2623 or Specification F2769. These fittings are intended for use in 100 psi (690 kPa) cold- and hot-water distribution systems operating at temperatures up to and including 180'''''F (82'''''C). Included are the requirements for material, molded part properties, performance, workmanship, dimensions, and markings to be used on the fittings and rings.

1.1.1''When used with PEX tubing in accordance with Specification F876, the fittings covered by this specification are intended for use in, but not limited to, residential and commercial, hot- and cold-potable water distribution systems, reclaimed water, fire protection, municipal water service lines, radiant heating and cooling systems, hydronic distribution systems, snow and ice melting systems, geothermal ground loops, district heating, turf conditioning, compressed air distribution, and building services pipe.

1.1.2''When used with PEX tubing in accordance with Specification F3253, the fittings covered by this specification are intended for use in residential and commercial hydronic heating and cooling systems.

1.1.3''When used with PE-RT tubing in accordance with Specification F2769, the fittings covered by this specification are intended for use in residential and commercial, hot- and cold-potable water distribution systems.

1.1.4''When used with PE-RT tubing in accordance with Specification F2623, the fittings covered by this specification are intended for use in general fluid transport, including hydronics and irrigations systems.

1.2''Included are the requirements for material, molded part properties, performance, workmanship, dimensions, and markings to be used on the fittings and rings.

1.3''The following is an index of the appendix in this specification:
