This Installation Handbook refers to TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings produced by Johnson Controls. TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings are produced using BLAZEMASTER CPVC compound. When reference to NFPA Standards is made in this Installation Handbook, the current edition of the relevant code is used. This Installation Handbook contains the criteria for installation (including system design, handling, and storage) of BLAZEMASTER CPVC piping systems in accordance with the applicable Listing/ Approval agencies. Additionally, this handbook contains general piping practices and other installation suggestions that may not be required to satisfy the applicable Listing/Approval agencies. To differentiate between a requirement and a suggestion, use the following definitions:
SHALL or MUST – The use of the words “shall” or “must” indicates a mandatory requirement of the Listings/Approvals.
SHOULD or MAY – The use of the words “should” or “may” indicates a recommendation that is strongly advised, but not
required to meet the Listings/Approvals.
This handbook is intended as a supplement to basic, fundamental knowledge relating to the installation and/or repair of CPVC fire sprinkler systems. Before commencing installation, a user should understand this Installation Handbook and confirm applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards, the National Building Code of Canada (as applicable), and local approval and installation requirements for CPVC fire sprinkler systems.
The TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings described herein must be installed and maintained in compliance with this Installation Handbook and with the applicable standards of the National Fire Protection Association, in addition to the standards of any authorities having jurisdiction. Failure to do so may impair the performance of the TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings.
The owner is responsible for maintaining their fire protection system and devices in proper operating condition. The installing contractor or product manufacturer should be contacted with any questions.
It is the designer’s responsibility to select products suitable for the intended service and to ensure that pressure ratings and performance data are not exceeded. Material selection should be verified to be compatible for the specific application. Designers and Installers must read and understand the installation instructions in this handbook.
Never remove any piping component or modify any piping deficiencies without first depressurizing and draining the system.
Never use compressed air or nitrogen in lieu of or to replace the re- quired hydrostatic system acceptance testing. Any pre-testing performed with low pressure air or nitrogen should follow the recommendations on Page 65. System failure when using high-pressure compressed air or ni- trogen may result in property damage, serious injury, or death.
