  • For Class 150, the maximum allowable working pressure equals the corresponding ANSI pressure-temperature rating per the designated metallurgy.
  • The maximum allowable working pressure for Class 300 (accounting for the plastic raised face) is as follows:
PTFE/PFA: -20°F to 100°F = 475 psi
200°F = 460 psi
300°F = 440 psi
450°F = 400 psi
PVDF: -20°F to 150°F = 475 psi
200°F = 460 psi
275°F = 445 psi
PP: 0°F to 150°F = 475 psi
200°F = 460 psi
225°F = 450 psi

C   Vacuum: Components are rated for full vacuum to maximum temperature rating.

8. STORAGE AND HANDLING REQUIREMENTS:
  • Exercise care in handling so that the plastic stub end protruding from the fitting is not damaged.
  • Avoid dropping or impacting fittings with heavy objects or storing near high traffic areas.
  • Uninstalled pipe and fittings should not be stored or handled at temperatures below 0°F (-18°C).
  • The center of gravity for pipe can be very deceptive. Use extra care in the handling, transfer, and storage of the product to avoid sudden load shifting causing possible personal injury and/or product damage.
9. PAINT:
Paint is a two-component epoxy primer, formulated on proprietary polymer technology, which provides rapid cure and overcoating even under low temperature conditions. The maximum external temperature rating is 212°F (100°C)

10. INSPECTION AND QUALITY CONTROL:
  • Each lined part passes a 15,000 volt minimum electrostatic spark test to ensure integrity of the plastic liner.
  • All parts pass visual inspection.
  • The plastic stub end protruding from CONQUEST fittings shall be free of defects that would impair butt weld quality.
  • The sealing surface of the liner is free of defects that would impair sealing effectiveness.
  • Wooden end protectors are used to protect the plastic faces on flanged connections. Plastic end protectors are used to protect the plastic stubs on CONQUEST parts and the plastic liner on plain end pipe. End protectors should stay in place until immediately prior to installation.
  • Pipe and fittings are labeled with a sticker which identifies the plastic liner type.
  • A nylon band is affixed to each part to identify the liner as follows:
    PTFE - Natural
    PFA - Brown
    PVDF - Black
    PP - Orange
  • Products are impression marked for material traceability.
