Designation F3348 19Standard Specification forPlastic Press Insert Fittings with Factory AssembledStainless Steel Press Sleeve for SDR9 Cross-linkedPolyethylene PEX Tubing1This standard is issued under the fixed designation F3348; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year oforiginal adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Asuperscript epsilon indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.1. Scope*1.1 This specification covers plastic press insert fittings withfactory assembled stainless steel press sleeves incorporating 3view holes and a tool locator ring. These fittings are for usewith cross-linked polyethylene PEX tubing in nominal sizes38,12,34,1,114,112, and 2 that meet the requirements forSpecification F876 or F3253. These fittings are intended foruse in 100 psi 690 kPa cold- and hot-water distributionsystems operating at temperatures up to and including 180 F82 C. Included are the requirements for material, moldedpart properties, perance, workmanship, dimensions, andmarkings to be used on the fittings and sleeves. The compo-nents covered by this specification are intended for use inresidential and commercial, hot and cold, potable water distri-bution systems as well as sealed central heating, includingunder-floor heating/cooling systems, and residential fire sprin-kler systems.1.2 UnitsThe values stated in inch-pound units are to beregarded as standard. The values given in parentheses aremathematical conversions to SI units that are provided forination only and are not considered standard.1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of thesafety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is theresponsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro-priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter-mine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.1.4 This international standard was developed in accor-dance with internationally recognized principles on standard-ization established in the Decision on Principles for theDevelopment of International Standards, Guides and Recom-mendations issued by the World Trade Organization TechnicalBarriers to Trade TBT Committee.2.
