Click here to download specification sheet

Application
Corrosion resistant grooved-end PVC pipe in IPS sizes 2" through 24" is available as an option from the factory. Pressure rating varies with schedule, pipe size, temperature, and the selected groove style coupling for PVC pipe as stated in Georg Fischer Harvel LLC engineering bulletin (Product Bulletin 112/401) and the manufacturers' groove coupling product specifications. The maximum service temperature for PVC pipe is 140°F, consult the groove coupling manufacturer for temperature limitations of their couplings for use in PVC pipe applications. Groove style connections are used where GF Harvel PVC pipe is joined to alternate IPS piping materials, or where disassembly is a prime factor. This pipe is available from Georg Fischer Harvel LLC with grooved ends designed for use with Victaulic Style 75 or Style 77 or equivalent flexible style couplings. Harvel currently utilizes both the roll grooving method as well as the cut grooving method to provide grooved-end pipe. Only flexible style grooved couplings are recommended for use with Harvel grooved-end PVC pipe. Rigid style couplings are not recommended for use on plastic pipe as they provide a compressive/shear load that can result in failure.

The groove dimensions for PVC Schedule and PVC SDR series grooved-end pipe shall meet the dimensional specifications called-out on Page 2 of this specification.

Marking
Product marking shall meet the requirements of ASTM D1785 for Schedule [40, 80, 120] pipe or ASTM D2241 for SDR Series Pipe as applicable and shall include: the manufacturer's name (or the manufacturer's trademark when privately labeled); the nominal pipe size; the material designation code; the pipe schedule and pressure rating for plain end pipe in psi for water @ 73°F; the ASTM designation D1785 or D2241 as applicable; the independent laboratory's seal of approval for potable water usage; and the date and time of manufacture.

Sample Specification
All PVC Schedule and SDR series pipe shall be manufactured from a Type I, Grade I Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) compound with a Cell Classification of 12454 per ASTM D1784; trade name H707 PVC. The pipe shall be manufactured in strict compliance to ASTM D1785 or ASTM D2241 as applicable, consistently meeting and/or exceeding the Quality Assurance test requirements of this standard with regard to material, workmanship, burst pressure, flattening, and extrusion quality. The pipe shall be manufactured in the USA, using domestic materials, by an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer. The groove dimensions for grooved-end pipe shall meet GF Harvel's published roll groove or cut groove dimensional specifications as applicable. All pipe shall be stored indoors after production at the manufacturing site until shipped from factory. This pipe shall carry the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) seal of approval for potable water applications. All pipe shall be manufactured by Georg Fischer Harvel LLC; No Equal.

PVC Pipe-Grooved-End DimensionsNOTE: Temperature and Pressure ratings and limitations are dependent on the grooved coupling manufacturer's specifications.

NOTE: A gasket/joint lubricant is recommended to prevent pinching the gasket and to assist the seating and alignment processes during assembly of grooved couplings. Certain lubricants may contain a petroleum base or other chemicals, which will cause damage to the plastic pipe, gasket and adapter. Georg Fischer Harvel LLC. suggests verifying the suitability for use of the selected lubricant with the lubricant manufacturer prior to use.

Additional chemical resistance data should be referenced for proper material selection and possible de-rating when working with fluids other than water. Refer to GF Harvel 112/401 Product Bulletin for chemical resistance, installation data, and additional information.
