P. 32

TYCO CPVC sprinkler fittings conform to the requirements of ASTM F438 (Schedule 40 dimensions from 3/4 in. to 1 1/2 in. (DN20 to DN32), ASTM F439 (Schedule 80 dimensions for 1 1/2 in. to 3 in. (DN40 to DN80) and ASTM F1970 (Transition Fittings). Rapid Seal Adapter (RSA) threaded sprinkler connection fittings and slip style fittings carry the NSF International (NSF-pw) mark for use in potable water systems. All other threaded sprinkler adapter fittings feature brass inserts and are not NSF-pw rated. See Appendix A for sprinkler fittings types, sizes, socket and take-out dimensions.
Solvent Cement
TYCO CPVC socket connections shall be joined using TFP-500 or TFP-600 One Step Solvent Cement as indicated in the “Listing and Approvals” section. TFP-500 and TFP-600 One Step Solvent Cements meet ASTM F493, NSF, FM, UL and LPCB requirements. Review solvent cementing instructions within this handbook prior to installation.
Ambient Temperature and Heat Sources
TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings shall be installed in areas where the ambient temperature does not exceed 150°F (65°C). (LPCB maximum ambient temperature of 50°C)
Before penetrating fire rated walls and partitions, consult building codes and authorities having jurisdiction in your area. TYCO CPVC systems should be designed and installed so that the piping is not closely exposed to high heat producing sources, such as incandescent light, ballasts, and steam lines.
Pressure Rating
TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings are Listed/Approved for a rated pressure of 175 psi (12,1 bar) and a maximum ambient temperature of 150°F (65°C). (LPCB maximum ambient temperature of 50°C)
