4. OPERATING REQUIREMENTS:
  • Service Temperature:
    0°F (-18°C) to 225°F (107°C)
    Note: Operating temperature limitations may be encountered depending upon specific chemical environments.

  • Pressure:
    • 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 steel (accounting for the plastic raised face) is:
      0°F to 150°F = 475 psi
      200°F = 460 psi
      225°F = 450 psi

  • Vacuum:
    • Pipe 1" through 10" has a full vacuum rating to 225°F.
    • Pipe 12" has a full vacuum rating to 215°F.

5. STORAGE AND HANDLING REQUIREMENTS:
  • Avoid dropping or impacting pipe with heavy objects or storing near high traffic areas.
  • Uninstalled lined pipe 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.
6. 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).

7. INSPECTION AND QUALITY CONTROL:
  • Each lined pipe passes a 15,000 volt minimum electrostatic spark test to ensure integrity of the plastic liner.
  • All parts pass visual inspection.
  • 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 for flanged pipe. Plastic end caps are used to protect the plastic liner for plain end pipe. End protectors should stay in place until immediately prior to installation.
  • Flanged pipe is labeled with a sticker located on the wooden end protectors which identifies the plastic liner type and the flange material. Plain end pipe is labeled with a sticker located on the pipe which identifies the plastic liner type.
  • Color Bands: An orange nylon band to identify the liner as polypropylene is affixed to all flanged pipe. The band is imprinted as follows: RESISTOFLEX-BC-PP-ASTM-F1545.
  • Products are impression marked for material traceability.
