1 Scope

This standard establishes minimum requirements and provides guidelines for the proper design, installation, examination, and testing of siphonic roof drains.  It includes definitions of terms and parameters involved in the proper design of siphonic drainage systems.

It is not the intent of this Standard to specify that a drain of a given diameter must drain a minimum or maximum amount of water.  It is the intent of this standard to provide standardized test procedures to ensure that drain products are evaluated equally.

This Standard does not dictate minimum flow or depth performance criteria for siphonic roof drains.  Instead, it specifies standard test procedures to be performed on siphonic roof drain products to document their actual performance and physical limits.  This data is to be made available in manufacturer literature for use by designers for selecting the drain product and entering performance characteristics into design calculations.

1.1 Inclusions

This standard applies to roof drains designed, manufactured, and installed in piping systems that are intended to operate under depressurized siphonic conditions created by the connected piping system.

1.2 Exclusions

1.2.1 Applicability of roof drain standards

Unless noted otherwise in this Standard, the requirements and standards for roof drains specified in ASME A112.6.4/CSA B79.4 do not apply to siphonic roof drains.

1.2.2 Conventional roof drains

This Standard does not apply to conventional roof drains covered under ASME A112.6.4/CSA B79.4.

1.3 Terminology

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

This International Standard specifies requirements for classification of wire electrodes and weld deposits in the as-welded condition and in the post-weld heat-treated condition for gas shielded metal arc welding of non alloy and fine grain steels with a minimum yield strength of up to 500 MPa or a minimum tensile strength of up to 570 MPa. One wire electrode can be tested and classified with different shielding gases.

This International Standard constitutes a combined specification providing classification utilizing a system based upon the yield strength and the average impact energy of 47 J of all-weld metal, or utilizing a system based upon the tensile strength and the average impact energy of 27 J of all-weld metal.

a) Clauses and tables which carry the suffix letter A are applicable only to wire electrodes classified to the system based upon the yield strength and the average impact energy of 47 J of all-weld metal in accordance with this International Standard.
b) Clauses and tables which carry the suffix letter B are applicable only to wire electrodes classified to the system based upon the tensile strength and the average impact energy of 27 J of all-weld metal in accordance with this International Standard.
c) Clauses and tables which have neither the suffix letter A nor the suffix letter B are applicable to all wire electrodes classified in accordance with this International Standard.
