Notes:
Pressure classes are defined as the rated water working pressure of the pipe in psi. The
thicknesses shown are adequate for the rated water working pressure plus a surge allowance of
100 psi. Calculations result in net thicknesses and are based on a minimum yield strength in
tension of 42,000 psi and 2.0 safety factor times the sum of working pressure and 100 psi surge
allowance.
Thickness can be calculated for rated water working pressure and surges other than the above by
use of equation 1 in ANSI/AWWA C150/A21.50.
AMERICAN Ductile Iron pipe is available for water working pressures greater than 350 psi.
Check AMERICAN for details.
These are standard pressure classes as given in AWWA C150 and C151. AMERICAN can
furnish any thickness in between these standard thicknesses if deemed economical for major
projects.
AMERICAN Ductile Iron pipe is also available with thicknesses greater than Pressure Class 350.
For special applications, contact AMERICAN.

Notes:
** Minimum allowable depth of cover is 3'.
The bolded numbers denote the depths of cover resulting from the pipe thickness being governed
by deflection in the design; these covers are greater due to the design deflection of 5% for
flexible-lined pipe instead of 3% for cement-lined pipe

Fastite® Joint Pipe Description

Fastite Joint Pipe for Water, Sewage or Other Liquids

Description

AMERICAN Fastite® Joint Pipe in sizes 4"-64" for water, sewage or other liquids has the
proven long-life and high-strength qualities inherent in pipe produced centrifugally in
accordance with AWWA C151. In addition, this significant AMERICAN development, a
dependable, single gasket, push-on type joint meeting the requirements of AWWA C111, affords
the customer lower joint cost and time-saving advantages in installation. It provides exceptional
strength and flexibility and has been widely accepted by engineers, contractors and utility
officials since the 1950s. For added flexibility during construction, and for possible elimination
of bends, a liberal 5° allowable deflection is standard in all sizes through 30", offering 21" offset
in a 20' length of pipe. Liberal deflection can also be provided in larger diameter pipe with
standard and Special Fastite Deflection Bells.

The patented AMERICAN Fastite Joint embodies many advanced design features and is rated
for a water working pressure of 350 psi. For specific conditions, ductile iron piping with this
joint has been approved for much higher pressure conditions. The socket, which is scientifically
designed with two gasket recesses and a dividing buttress, is manufactured to close tolerances so
that the gasket is self-centered, securely confined, and firmly compressed for a permanent, tight,
trouble-free joint. The Fastite joint seal, bubble-tight under vacuum and external pressure,
becomes even tighter with the application of internal pressure due to a specially designed
wedging surface in the socket.

Fastite Joint Assembly

The bell opening is slightly tapered to provide easy entry of the pipe end; the flared socket
design permits liberal joint deflection. The plain end of the pipe is tapered or rounded to
facilitate entry into the bell and self-centering in the gasket. On pipe cut in the field, the plain end
can be easily beveled and smoothed by the use of a portable grinding wheel or other suitable
apparatus. Methods of cutting ductile iron pipe are described in Cutting and Tapping.

A stripe is painted on the plain end of AMERICAN Fastite Joint Pipe to provide a visual means
of checking the joint alignment and to assure proper insertion. See Fastite Assembly for detailed
assembly instructions.

Fastite Gasket

The Fastite Joint sealing component -- a molded synthetic rubber ring gasket of two hardnesses,
shaped to fit the configuration of the gasket socket -- is manufactured per all requirements of
ANSI/AWWA C111/A21.11 and under AMERICAN's own rigid specifications, assuring closely
controlled dimensional and hardness properties. The smaller end of the gasket is of harder rubber
- Approximately 85 durometer hardness - which provides a strong shoulder for self-centering on
the gasket buttress, a permanent seal against cold flow, and protection from deterioration. The
larger end of the gasket is of softer rubber, approximately 65 durometer hardness, providing ease
of assembly and positive sealing. The design assures effective sealing at low or high pressures
and in straight or deflected joint alignment. It also eliminates any concerns of infiltration or root
intrusion, and assures positive sealing against negative pressure, thus preventing gasket "pullout"
should a vacuum be created in the line.

A taper on the inside of the gasket allows the entering pipe to locate and center on the hard
section and reduces friction loads during subsequent assembly. The snug fit and the hard section
of the gasket, in conjunction with the design of the buttress, act to restrain the gasket against
dislodgment during assembly. Additional internal pressure results in increased tightness of the
seal when pipe is either in straight alignment or deflected.

Gaskets made of SBR (Styrene Butadiene Rubber) are standard. For information on gaskets
made of special types of rubber, for applications involving air or liquid temperatures in excess of
150° F, or for chemical, hydrocarbon or other special service applications, and for installations in
contaminated soils where permeation through gaskets might be a concern, consult AMERICAN
for recommendations. See Table 2-1 (below).

Fastite Lubricant

AMERICAN Fastite Joint Lubricant is a non-toxic, water soluble material imparting neither taste
nor odor to the conveyed water and is ANSI/NSF 61 approved. The lubricant is suitable for use
in hot or cold weather and will adhere to wet or dry pipe. AMERICAN Fastite Joint Pipe can be
assembled when submerged, though for such installation, special AMERICAN underwater joint
lubricant is recommended. See Fastite Joint Lubricant (Table No. 2-5) for appropriate lubricant
quantities.
Fastite Joint Materials

Standard joint materials include Fastite plain rubber gaskets and a sufficient supply of Fastite
joint lubricant. Fastite pipes are most often readily joined with available excavating equipment;
however, assembly tools can be supplied by AMERICAN on a loan basis with a nominal deposit
which is refundable upon return of tools in good condition.

Fittings

AMERICAN Fastite or Flex-ring fittings and AMERICAN Mechanical Joint Fittings are used
with Fastite Joint pipe. See Fittings.

Coating and Lining

AMERICAN Fastite Joint Pipe can be furnished asphaltic coated, cement lined, or with special
coating or lining where required. See Linings.

+Special Deflection Bells must be specifically ordered and will be marked with white bell face
for easy identification.
For easiest assembly, the joints should be assembled with the pipe in reasonably straight
alignment. After joint assembly, the pipe may be deflected up to the maximum shown above.
Offset distances are based on nominal lengths shown. Offset distances for 36"- 64" Special
Deflection Bells are based on 20' lengths.
