Pipe/Marking

Pipe

GF Harvel LXT® pipe shall be manufactured in strict accordance to the dimensional requirements of ASTM D1785 to Schedule 80 dimensions and tolerances. All pipe shall be extruded on dedicated equipment used for the production of GF Harvel LXT®. All pipe shall be continually monitored for dimensional tolerances and inspected for any visible scratches, bubbles, dirt, voids or other imperfections. All finished product shall be homogenous throughout, and shall be free of voids and foreign contamination. Each pipe length shall be purged with clean filtered air during production to remove shavings. All pipe shall be double bagged immediately after manufacture in FDA approved anti-static polyethylene sleeves that are heat-sealed upon final inspection. Each standard length of product shall be traceable to the raw material lot and batch from which it was produced. Each production run of pipe shall also meet or exceed the test requirements established by GF Harvel’s Quality Assurance Program for materials, workmanship, burst pressure, flattening resistance, and extrusion quality.
