Stainless steel strips for water pipes are made by automatic argon arc welding or plasma welding on pipe making equipment, and generally no heat treatment is performed after welding.
1.9 Flattening performance When the water pipe is flattened for testing, the distance between the water pipe and the pressure plate should be 1/3 of the outer diameter of the water pipe. No cracks or damage should occur after flattening.

1.11 Bending performance When a water pipe with a nominal diameter of no more than DN25mm is subjected to a bending test, the bending radius is equal to 4 times the outer diameter of the water pipe. When the bending angle is 90°, there should be no cracks or wrinkles on the pipe wall.
1.12 Hydraulic pressure test and air tightness test
1.12.1 When a water pipe is subjected to a hydraulic test, the test pressure is 2.45MPa. Under this pressure, after 10 seconds, the water pipe should have no leakage or permanent deformation.
1.12.2 When water pipes undergo hydraulic gas medium or formal inspection, an air tightness test shall be carried out. The pressure for liquid medium is 0.6MPa, and the test pressure for gas medium is 1.7MPa. After the water pipe is completely immersed in water for 10 seconds, the water pipe shall No bubbles appear.
1.12.3 When water pipes are subjected to eddy current flaw detection, their artificial standard defects (drilling diameter) should comply with Level A in GB/T7735.
1.13 Hygiene requirements
When required by the user or during type inspection, the hygienic requirements for water pipes used for drinking purified water and domestic drinking water after immersion shall comply with GB/T17219
2 “Stainless Steel Pressure Fittings”
2.1 The pipe fitting structure type of this standard is equivalent to the extrusion type fitting part of the Japanese Waterworks Association standard JWWWA G 116-1982 “Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings for Waterways”. The process performance of this standard pipe fitting is not equivalent to the Japan stainless-steel-alloy-430-fr standard SAS 322-1995 “Performance Standard of Stainless Steel Pipe Fittings for General Piping”.
2.2 Range: DN≯65 mm, working pressure≯1.6MPa, can input drinking water, domestic drinking water, pure water, hot water and high temperature not exceeding 135℃.
2.3 The types, types and codes of pipe fittings are shown in Table 6.
2.4 The materials of pipe fittings are 0Cr18Ni9 (304) 0Cr17Ni12Mo2 (316) and Cr17Ni14o2 (316L). When extruded, the materials should comply with the regulations in CJ/T × × × × “Thin-walled Stainless Steel Water Pipes”. When using steel strip stamping, it should comply with the regulations in GB/T4239 and GB/T5059.
Note: 1. Both ends of Type A connector are sockets.
2. Type B interface has a socket at one end and a straight pipe at the other end.
2.5 The O-rings used in pipe fittings are generally made of butyl rubber. When the angle is greater than 80°, silicone rubber should be used. Its basic dimensions, technical requirements, experimental methods, inspection rules and markings, packaging, transportation, and storage are in accordance with Appendix A (the appendix of the standard).
2.6 The appearance of the pipe fittings should be clean and smooth. The weld surface should be free of cracks, pores, undercuts and other defects. Slight mold marks are allowed on the outer surface. Longitudinal scratches should not be greater than 10% of the nominal wall thickness.

5% (no less than five) of each batch of products should be sampled for a hydraulic performance test. The test pressure is 2.45 MPa. Under this pressure, after 15 seconds, the pipe fittings should have no leakage or permanent deformation.
2.9 Air tightness
When pipe fittings are used for gas media or type inspection, an air tightness test should be carried out. The air tightness test pressure for liquid media is 0.6 MPa, and the air tightness test pressure for gas media is 1.7 MPa. After the pipe fittings are completely immersed in water for 10 seconds, the pipe fittings There should be no air bubbles.
2.10 Connection performance
When required by the user or during type inspection, a connection performance test should be carried out. The test pieces are equal-diameter butt joints at both ends and are clamped and connected to thin-walled stainless steel water pipes of appropriate length to form a set of samples for pressure test, pull-out test, Vibration test and pressure fluctuation test.
2.10.1 Withstand voltage test
When conducting the pressure test, the test pressure is 2.45 MPa. Under this pressure, after 2 minutes, there should be no leakage or falling off at the connection parts of the pipe fittings and pipes.

When performing a pull-out test, stretch at a speed of 1-4mm/min until the pipe fitting is separated from the pipe. The tensile force at this time should be greater than the minimum tensile resistance. The minimum tensile resistance of the pipe fitting.
2.10.3 When conducting a vibration test, the test pressure is 1.75 MPa. Under this pressure, the number of vibrations continues for 100,000 times. There should be no leakage or falling off at the connection parts of the pipe fittings and pipes.
2.10.4 Pressure fluctuation test
When conducting pressure fluctuation tests, when required or when type testing, pipe fittings used to transport purified drinking water and domestic drinking water, the hygienic requirements after immersion should comply with the provisions of GB/T1721.
