4.3.1 The size and deviation of pipe specifications should meet the requirements of Table 2 (omitted).
4.3.2 The standard length of the pipe is 4m, which can also be negotiated between the supplier and the buyer according to the user’s requirements. The limit deviation of pipe length is% of pipe length.
4.4 The physical mechanism performance of the pipe should meet the requirements of Table 3 (omitted).
4.5 The sanitary performance of drinking water pipes should meet the requirements of GB 9688.
5 Test method
5.1 Standard environment for sample condition adjustment and testing
According to GB 2918, the temperature is 23±2℃, the state adjustment time is not less than 24h, and the test is carried out under this condition (unless otherwise required).
5.2 Color and appearance inspection
Observe with the naked eye under the light source.
5.3 Dimension measurement
5.3.1 Average outer diameter
GB 8806 stipulates measurement.
5.3.2 Wall thickness
is measured according to GB8806 regulations.
5.3.3 Length
Measured with a measuring tool with an accuracy of 10mm at room temperature.
5.4 Vertical shrinkage rate
Test according to method A or B in GB 6671.3. The test temperature is 110±2℃.
5.5 Hydraulic test
5.5.1 The hydraulic test method shall be carried out in accordance with GB 6111.
5.5.2 The temperature, ring stress and test time of the hydraulic test shall be as specified in Table 3 (omitted).
5.6 Drop hammer impact test
The drop hammer impact test is tested in accordance with GB/T 14152.
The test temperature is 0℃, and the drop weight and drop height are shown in Table 4 (omitted).
The first batch of 10 impacts, if all the samples are not damaged, then pass.
If 4 or more samples are damaged in 10 impacts, it is not passed.
If 1 or 2 or 3 samples are damaged after 10 impacts, 20 impacts need to be added. If 5 or more samples are damaged in the accumulated 30 impacts, it is not passed.
5.7 The measurement of hygienic performance shall be carried out in accordance with the provisions of GB 5009.60.
6 Inspection rules
6.1 Products must be inspected by the quality inspection department of the manufacturer and have a qualified mark before they leave the factory.
6.2 Group batch
Use the same specifications of pipes produced with the same raw material, formula and process as a batch, and the quantity of each batch shall not exceed 10t. One delivery can consist of one batch or multiple batches, and the batch number should be indicated at the time of delivery. Products with the same delivery batch number are one delivery inspection lot.
6.3 Factory inspection
6.3.1 The inspection items are the longitudinal retraction rate and the 1h hydraulic test in 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4.
6.3.2 For the inspection of 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3, the GB 2828 normal inspection sampling plan is adopted, IL is the general inspection level I, and the acceptable quality level (AQL) is 6.5. Among them, N, n, Ac, Re are shown in Table 5 (omitted) .
6.3.3 Among the qualified products by counting and sampling, sufficient samples are randomly selected, and the longitudinal retraction rate and the 1h hydraulic test in 4.4 are tested.
6.4 Type inspection
6.4.1 Type inspection items are all technical requirements items.
6.4.2 Conduct inspections to 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 in accordance with 6.3.2 of this standard. Take samples according to the provisions of 6.3.3 of this standard to inspect other technical requirements.
6.4.3 In general, a type inspection shall be carried out at least once a year. Type inspection should also be carried out in one of the following situations.
A. Trial-making appraisal of new products or old products transferred to factory production;
B. After formal production, if there are major changes in structure, materials, and processes, the product performance may be affected;
C. When the product has been suspended for any reason for more than three months and resumed production;
D. When there is a big difference between the factory inspection result and the last type inspection;
E. When the state-owned quality supervision agency requests for type inspection.
6.5 Judgment Rules
If any of 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3 does not meet the requirements, the unit sample shall be judged as unqualified. The batch is qualified according to the provisions of Table 5 (omitted). When one of the other items fails to meet the specified indicators, a double sample can be randomly selected for re-inspection of the project. If it is still unqualified, the batch will be judged as unqualified. .
7 Marking, packaging, transportation and storage
7.1 Logo
The pipes should be permanently marked, and the marking interval should not exceed 3m. The manufacturer’s name or trademark, product name and specifications (de×e) should be marked in sequence; the product packaging should be marked with the standard number, batch number, quantity, production date and The code of the inspector, and the product quality certificate of the inspection department is attached.
7.2 Packaging
The pipes should be bundled according to different specifications. The weight of each package is generally not more than 50kg, and it can also be negotiated and determined according to user requirements.
7.3 Transportation
During transportation, the pipe shall not be subject to severe impact, throwing and sunlight.
7.4 Storage
The pipes should be stored in a warehouse with a temperature not exceeding 40°C. They should not be stored in the open air, and the distance from the heat source should not be less than 1m. The storage date should not exceed one year from the date of production.
