PVC Well Casing
ASTM D 1785: Specification for poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) plastic pipe,
Schedule 40, 80, and 120
Scope: This specification covers PVC pipe in Schedule 40,80, and 120 for
pressure applications. This system is intended for pressure applications where the
operating temperature will not exceed 140° F.
ASTM F 480: Specification for thermoplastic well casing pipe and couplings
made in standard dimension ratios (SDR), schedule 40 and schedule 80
Scope: This specification covers water well casing pipe and coupling made
from thermoplastic material in standard dimension ratios (SDR), Schedule 40 and
PVC Well Casing is primarily used to line wells for drinking water. Like other PVC
piping systems, it is intended for applications where temperatures will not exceed
140° F. PVC Well Casing is a robust piping material designed and tested to withstand
the collapsing pressure associated with underground well installation.
