PART 3 - EXECUTION

0.1 PIPING INSTALLATION

A. Drawing plans, schematics, and diagrams indicate general location and arrangement of piping
systems. Indicate piping locations and arrangements if such were used to size pipe and
calculate friction loss, expansion, pump sizing, and other design considerations. Install piping
as indicated unless deviations to layout are approved on Coordination Drawings.

B. Remove standing water in the bottom of trench.

C. Do not backfill piping trench until field quality-control testing has been completed and results
approved.

D. Install piping at uniform grade of 0.2 percent. Install drains, consisting of a tee fitting, NPS 3/4
ball valve, and short NPS 3/4 threaded nipple with cap, at low points and elsewhere as required
for system drainage. Install manual air vents at high points.

E. Install components with pressure rating equal to or greater than system operating pressure.

F. Install piping free of sags and bends.

G. Install fittings for changes in direction and branch connections.

0.2 JOINT CONSTRUCTION

A. Join pipe and fittings according to the following requirements and Division 15 Sections
specifying piping systems.

B. Ream ends of pipes and tubes and remove burrs. Bevel plain ends of steel pipe.

C. Remove scale, slag, dirt, and debris from inside and outside of pipe and fittings before
assembly.

D. Welded Joints: Construct joints according to AWS D10.12M/D10.12, using qualified processes
and welding operators according to "Quality Assurance" Article.

E. Flanged Joints: Select appropriate gasket material, size, type, and thickness for service
application. Install gasket concentrically positioned. Use suitable lubricants on bolt threads.

F. Cased Piping Joints: Assemble sections and finish joints with pourable or split insulation and
exterior jacket sleeve, and apply shrink-wrap seals.

0.3 IDENTIFICATION

A. Install continuous plastic underground warning tapes during back filling of trenches for
underground hydronic piping. Locate tapes 6 to 8 inches below finished grade, directly over
piping. See Division 2 Section "Earthwork" for warning-tape materials and devices and their
installation.

0.4 FIELD QUALITY CONTROL

A. Testing Agency: Engage a qualified testing agency to perform tests and inspections.

B. Tests and Inspections, Chemical Treatment and Filling: See Section 15181, “Hydronic Piping.”
