  1. Polypropylene Pipe shall be manufactured from a Group 1, Class 2 Beta Polypropylene Homopolymer material manufactured to SDR11 dimensions with a pressure rating of 150 psi when measured at 68°F (20°C). Pipe internal surface finish shall be Ra ≤ 39.4μin. Pipe shall be manufactured in sizes from ½” through 16”.

  2. Polypropylene Fittings shall be manufactured from a Group I, Class 2 Beta Polypropylene Homopolypmer material manufactured to SDR 11 dimensions with a pressure rating of 150 psi when measured at 63°F (20°C). Fittings shall be available in sizes from ½” up to 16”. Fittings shall be manufactured and cataloged for either IR®/Butt Fusion or socket fusion joining methods.

  3. All components of the pipe and fitting system shall conform to the following applicable ASTM Standards, D4101, D 638, D2837, D2122, and shall conform to FDA CFR 21 177.1520, USP 25 Class VI and ASME-BPE. All pipe shall be marked with manufacturers name, pipe size, wall thickness, type, quality control mark and pressure rating information.

  4. Piping shall be PROGEF® Standard PP Piping System as manufactured by GF Piping Systems.

2.2 VALVES

  1. Ball Valves: Ball valves shall be full port, true union end constructed of polypropylene with EPDM or FPM seals available, manufactured for installation in PROGEF® Standard piping system, Type 546 as manufactured by GF Piping Systems.           

  2. Diaphragm Valves: Diaphragm valves shall be constructed of polypropylene with EPDM or PTFE Seal configurations, manufactured for installation in PROGEF® Standard piping system, Type 514, 515, 517 or 519 as manufactured by GF Piping Systems.

  3. Three-Way Ball Valves: Ball valves shall be L-Port/T-Port type constructed of polypropylene with EPDM or FPM seats available, manufactured for installation in PROGEF® Standard Piping system, Type 543 as manufactured by GF Piping Systems.

  4. Butterfly Valves: Butterfly valves shall be constructed of polypropylene with EPDM or FPM seats available, manufactured for installation in PROGEF® Standard Piping system, Type 567 (wafer style) or Type 578 (lug style) as manufactured by GF Piping systems.

PART 3 - EXECUTION

3.1 HANDLING

  1. Material shall be stored in original packaging and protected from environmental damage until installation. Pipe shall be supported sufficiently to prevent sagging. Care shall be taken not to gouge or otherwise notch the pipe in excess of 10% of the wall thickness.

3.2 INSTALLATION

  1. System components shall be installed using the [Socket, IR® (Infrared) Butt Fusion or Standard Butt Fusion] joining method according to current installation instructions as delivered in print or documented online at www.gfpiping.com. An on-site installation seminar shall be conducted by GF personnel who are certified to conduct said seminar. Seminar topics shall include all aspects of product installation (storage, set up, support spacing, fusion process, machine care, testing procedure, etc.). At the conclusion of the seminar, all installers will be given a written certification test and will be required to prepare and complete one fusion joint of the type being implemented on the project. Upon successful completion of said test, the installer will be issued a certification card verifying that they have met the requirements of the manufacturer with regards to knowledge of proper product installation and testing methods.

  2. Only the following GF Piping Systems fusion units may be used to install the PROGEF® Standard piping system:

    For Socket Fusion Installation – SG 110 Socket Fusion Machine or MSE hand tool

    Butt Fusion Installation – SG 160, GF 160-315, GF 160-500, Butt Fusion Machine

    For IR Fusion Installation – IR63 Plus, IR225 Plus, IR-315 Plus, Infrared Butt Fusion Machines

  3. Under this specification, the contractor shall be responsible for the purchase or rental of the proper machine required to meet the intent of the specification and be used for installation of the product on site. NOTE: When using socket fusion joining, the installer shall use the proper socket fusion (bench) machine (SG-110, SG-160) per manufacturers’ recommendations, for as many of the required fittings as possible, with minimal use of the MSA hand tool.

  4. Installer shall ensure that all pipe and fittings used for Pure Water Piping are components of the same system. No mixing of various manufacturers’ pipe and/or fittings shall be allowed.

3.3 TESTING

The system shall be tested in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations

Following is a general test procedure for Georg Fischer plastic piping. It applies to most applications. Certain applications may require additional consideration. For further questions regarding your application, please contact your local GF representative

  1. All piping systems should be pressure tested prior to being placed into operational service.

  2. All pressure tests should be conducted in accordance with the appropriate building, plumbing, mechanical and safety codes for the area where the piping is being installed.

  3. When testing plastic piping systems, all tests should be conducted hydrostatically and should not exceed the pressure rating of the lowest rated component in the piping system (often a valve). Test the system at 150% of the designed operational pressure, i.e.: If the system is designed to operate at 80PSI, then the test will be conducted at 120PSI.

  4. When hydrostatic pressure is introduced to the system, it should be done gradually through a low point in the piping system with care taken to eliminate any entrapped air by bleeding at high points within the system. This should be done in four stages, waiting ten minutes at each stage (adding ¼ the total desired pressure at each stage).

  5. Allow one hour for system to stabilize after reaching desired pressure. After the hour, in case of pressure drop, increase pressure back to desired amount and hold for 30 minutes. If pressure drops by more than 6%, check system for leaks.

    Note: If ambient temperature changes by more than 10°F during the test, a retest may be necessary.
