ISO 16486-1:2012 Preview
Plastics piping systems for the supply of gaseous fuels - Unplasticized polyamide (PA-U) piping systems with fusion jointing and mechanical jointing -- Part 1: General
ISO 16486-1:2012 specifies the general properties of unplasticized polyamide (PA-U) compounds for the manufacture of pipes, fittings and valves made from these compounds, intended to be buried and used for the supply of gaseous fuels. It also specifies the test parameters for the test methods to which it refers.
ISO 16486 is applicable to PA-U piping systems the components of which are connected by fusion jointing and/or mechanical jointing.
ISO 16486-1:2012 establishes a calculation and design scheme on which to base the maximum operating pressure (MOP) of a PA-U piping system.
