FRIALEN-Tapping Tee (DAA) 4IPS x 1/2CTS


made of PE4710
Dated: 26. July 2012

Introduction
This report describes the tests administered for the release of FRIALEN Electrofusion Tapping
Tee, part of the FRIALEN Safety Fittings product range, manufactured by
FRIATEC Aktiengesellschaft
Technical Plastics Division
Mannheim, Germany.
FRIALEN Electrofusion Tapping Tees are composed of Eltex TUB 121 Cell Class
PE345434C PE4710 and suitable in water service line up to 160 psig and Gas service pipeline
up to 125 psig.
General
The fusion procedure and the qualification test were administered at the Test Laboratories of
FRIATEC Aktiengesellschaft Technical Plastics Division, Mannheim, Germany with the pipes
documented in the result tables.
All tests are based on ASTM F1055 "Standard Specification for Electrofusion Type Polyethylene
Fittings for Outside Diameter Controlled Polyethylene Pipe and Tubing".
Fusion procedures based on the Assembly Instruction for FRIALEN Safety Fittings and were
executed at operating temperatures between 14F (-10C) to 120F (+49C).
Subsequently, the test samples were subject to the following tests (ASTM F1055)
- Sustained Pressure Test

ASTM F 1055 9.2 (ASTM D1598)
