Fastite Joint Pipe With FastGrip Gasket
Fastite Joint Pipe With Fast-Grip Gasket Fastite

These are special thickness classes as shown in AWWA C150 and C151. AMERICAN can furnish any thickness in between these special thicknesses if deemed desirable for major projects.

Special classes are most appropriately used for some threaded, grooved, or ball and socket pipes or for extraordinary design conditions, and they are generally less available than standard pressure class pipe.

For pressure rating and maximum depth of cover capabilities of special thickness classes, check with AMERICAN. These capabilities can be estimated by comparing metal thickness and capabilities of those of pressure classes, or calculated by using the design formulas shown in AWWA C150.
