Tricon Copper from Tricon Piping Systems Inc.

Service Pipe:

The service pipe shall be Type “K”, or Type “L” hard drawn seamless copper tubing to ASTM B-88 and WWT-799.

Refrigerant piping shall meet ASTM B-280, Type ACR and ASME 31.5 Straight lengths of piping will be supplied in 20 ft. lengths with 6” of piping exposed at each end for field joint fabrication.


The insulation shall be a foamed in place closed cell polyurethane which completely fills the annular space between the carrier pipe and the exterior casing. The insulation shall have the following physical properties:
Minimum Density (lb./cu. ft.) 2.0 (ASTM D-1621)
90-95 % Closed Cell (ASTM D-2856)
“K” Factor BTU/Hr. sq. ft. °F/in. 147 (ASTM C-177)

Exterior Casing:*

The exterior casing shall be:
  1. Seamless, extruded white PVC Type 1, Grade 1, Class 12454-B per ASTM D-1784 or
  2. High Density Polyethylene (H.D.P.E.) with the following physical properties:
    • ASTM D-3350…Resin Type III, Grade P34
    • ASTM D-633…Ultimate Elongation 850%
    • ASTM D-633…Tensile Yield Strength 3300 psi
    • ASTM D-790…Tangent Flexural Modules 175,000 psi
No polyethylene tape casings will be allowed.


All fittings, anchors, end seals, other sub-assemblies shall be prefabricated or field fabricated dependant upon engineer’s option and/or site conditions.

Field Joints:

After soldering and hydrostatic testing, PVC jacketed straight field joints shall be insulated with polyurethane foam to the thickness specified, PVC sleeve and pressure sensitive tape. HDPE jackets will use polyurethane foam and a heat shrinkable sleeve.

Expansion/Contraction Compensation:

Expansion and contraction within the piping system shall be accommodated with factory prefabricated internal expansion elbows, z-bends, expansion loops, and anchors specifically designed for each application. External expansion compensation can be provided with the use of flexible foam bolsters.
