8.

Install insulation over fittings, valves, strainers, flanges, unions, and


other specialties with continuous thermal and vapor-retarder integrity,
unless otherwise indicated.
Insulate pipe elbows using preformed fitting insulation or mitered
fittings made from same material and density as adjacent pipe
insulation. Each piece shall be butted tightly against adjoining piece
and bonded with adhesive. Fill joints, seams, voids, and irregular
surfaces with insulating cement finished to a smooth, hard, and uniform
contour that is uniform with adjoining pipe insulation.
Insulate tee fittings with preformed fitting insulation or sectional pipe
insulation of same material and thickness as used for adjacent pipe.
Cut sectional pipe insulation to fit. Butt each section closely to the next
and hold in place with tie wire. Bond pieces with adhesive.
Insulate valves using preformed fitting insulation or sectional pipe
insulation of same material, density, and thickness as used for adjacent
pipe. Overlap adjoining pipe insulation by not less than two times the
thickness of pipe insulation, or one pipe diameter, whichever is thicker.
For valves, insulate up to and including the bonnets, valve stuffing-box
studs, bolts, and nuts. Fill joints, seams, and irregular surfaces with
insulating cement.
Insulate flanges and unions using a section of oversized preformed
pipe insulation. Overlap adjoining pipe insulation by not less than two
times the thickness of pipe insulation, or one pipe diameter, whichever
is thicker.
Cover segmented insulated surfaces with a layer of finishing cement
and coat with a mastic.
For services not specified to receive a field-applied jacket except for
flexible elastomeric, install fitted PVC cover over elbows, tees,
strainers, valves, flanges, and unions. Terminate ends with PVC end
caps. Tape PVC covers to adjoining insulation facing using PVC tape.
Stencil or label the outside insulation jacket of each union with the word
"UNION." Match size and color of pipe labels.

C.

Insulate instrument connections for thermometers, pressure gages, sensors


on insulated pipes. Shape insulation at these connections by tapering it to
and around the connection with insulating cement and finish with finishing
cement, mastic, and flashing sealant.

Make removable flange and union insulation from sectional pipe


insulation of same thickness as that on adjoining pipe. Install same
insulation jacket as adjoining pipe insulation.
When flange and union covers are made from sectional pipe insulation,
extend insulation from flanges or union long at least two times the
insulation thickness over adjacent pipe insulation on each side of
flange or union. Secure flange cover in place with stainless-steel or
aluminum bands. Select band material compatible with insulation and
jacket.
Construct removable valve insulation covers in same manner as for
flanges except divide the two-part section on the vertical center line of
valve body.
When covers are made from block insulation, make two halves, each
consisting of mitered blocks wired to stainless-steel fabric. Secure this
wire frame, with its attached insulation, to flanges with tie wire. Extend

concealing or closing-in after roughing-in and before setting fixtures.
Final Inspection: Arrange for final inspection by Engineer to observe
tests specified below and to ensure compliance with requirements.

B.

Reinspection: If Engineer finds that piping will not pass test or inspection,
make required corrections and arrange for reinspection.

C.

Test sanitary drainage and vent piping according to procedures of authorities


having jurisdiction or, in absence of published procedures, as follows:
1.

Test for leaks and defects in new piping and parts of existing piping
that have been altered, extended, or repaired. If testing is performed in
segments, submit separate report for each test, complete with diagram
of portion of piping tested.

2.

Leave uncovered and unconcealed new, altered, extended, or replaced


drainage and vent piping until it has been tested and approved.
Expose work that was covered or concealed before it was tested.

3.

Roughing-in Plumbing Test Procedure: Test drainage and vent piping,


except outside leaders, on completion of roughing-in. Close openings
in piping system and fill with water to point of overflow, but not less

than 10-foot head of water (30 kPa). From 15 minutes before


inspection starts to completion of inspection, water level must not drop.
Inspect joints for leaks.

D.

4.

Finished Plumbing Test Procedure: After plumbing fixtures have been


set and traps filled with water, test connections and prove they are
gastight and watertight. Plug vent-stack openings on roof and building
drains where they leave building. Introduce air into piping system
equal to pressure of 1-inch wg (250 Pa). Use U-tube or manometer
inserted in trap of water closet to measure this pressure. Air pressure
must remain constant without introducing additional air throughout
period of inspection. Inspect plumbing fixture connections for gas and
water leaks.

5.

Repair leaks and defects with new materials and retest piping, or
portion thereof, until satisfactory results are obtained.

6.

Prepare reports for tests and required corrective action.

Test force-main piping according to procedures of authorities having


jurisdiction or, in absence of published procedures, as follows:
1.

Leave uncovered and unconcealed new, altered, extended, or replaced


force-main piping until it has been tested and approved. Expose work
that was covered or concealed before it was tested.

2.

Cap and subject piping to static-water pressure of 50 psig (345 kPa)


above operating pressure, without exceeding pressure rating of piping
system materials. Isolate test source and allow to stand for four hours.
Leaks and loss in test pressure constitute defects that must be
repaired.

3.

Repair leaks and defects with new materials and retest piping, or
portion thereof, until satisfactory results are obtained.

4.

Prepare reports for tests and required corrective action.

CLEANING

A.

Clean interior of piping. Remove dirt and debris as work progresses.

B.

Protect drains during remainder of construction period to avoid clogging with
