Fuseal® PP Corrosive Waste

fuseal-pp-330x240

Fuseal® PP is resistant to the corrosive action of alkalis, alcohols, acids, solvents and salt solutions. Dilute mineral acids and aqueous solutions of acid salts, which are so destructive to most metals, have no affect on the Fuseal PP system. In general, Fuseal PP is attacked only by strong oxidizing acids and weakened by certain organic solvents and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Fuseal PP will not rust, pit, scale, corrode or be affected by electrolysis.

Fuseal PP piping systems have excellent chemical resistance and physical properties which make the system ideal for handling corrosive waste mixtures of acids, bases and solvents  present in laboratory, industrial or food and beverage processing DWV applications.

2.3 SPECIAL WASTE PIPE AND FITTINGS ABOVE SLAB (Under Bench)

  1. Polypropylene Pipe Schedule 40 shall be joined by the mechanical joint method. Pipe shall be manufactured of flame-retardant homopolymer polypropylene. Flammability requirements are based on ASTM D635 “Standard Test Method for Rate of Burning and/or Extent and Time of Burning of Self Supporting Plastics in a Horizontal Position.”

  2. Flame-Retardant Polypropylene fittings shall be manufactured to Schedule 40 dimensions. Fittings shall be joined to the polypropylene pipe by means of mechanical joint connection. Fittings shall meet the same flammability requirements as described for pipe above.

  3. All components of the system shall conform to the following applicable ASTM Standards: D4101, D3311, D1599, D2122, F1290 and F1412. All pipe shall be marked with manufacturer’s name, pipe size, schedule, type, quality control mark and ASTM information.

PART 3 - EXECUTION

3.1 INSTALLATION

  1. Pipe and fittings shall be installed 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 certified GF personnel. Seminar topics shall include all aspects of product installation (storage, set up, support spacing, fusion process, mechanical joint process, testing procedure, etc.). At the conclusion of the installation seminar, all installers will be given a certification test and, upon successful completion of said test, 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 GF Piping Systems fusion units MSA 250 SE or “Electro Plus®” may be used in the installation of the Fuseal® and Fuseal 25/50™ piping systems. Under this specification, the contractor shall be responsible for purchasing either one MSA 250 SE or one “Electro Plus®” fusion unit for use in installation of the product on-site.

  3. Installer shall ensure that all pipe and fittings used for the acid-resistant pipe system are components of the same system. No mixing of various manufacturers’ pipe and or fittings shall be allowed. Acceptable manufacturers are GF Piping Systems or approved equal.

3.2 TESTING

  1. A. The system shall be tested in accordance with all local plumbing codes. All sections of the piping system shall be tested with a maximum of 30 foot head of water (approx. 15 PSI) for fusion system. Under no circumstances should the system be tested with air or any other gas. Joints may be pressure tested 10 minutes after fusion is completed. (Mechanical joints shall be tested to a maximum 10 foot head or 5 PSI).
