Fittings and Specials
Manholes and Appurtences
Manholes and certain appurtenances are necessary for the proper functioning of a complete sewer and culvert system. They may include manholes, inverted siphons, catch basins and inlets, flared end sections, and fittings such as bends, tees, and wyes. The concrete pipe industry has progressively developed most of the common appurtenances and such specials that will provide more efficient and economical facilities for complete performance.
ASTM C 478 Precast Reinforced Concrete Manhole Sections
Catch Basins and Inlets
Catch basins are available in 2'-5' diameters in variable lengths. Inlets are available in 2' diameters in variable lengths. Catch basins and inlets may be manufactured with precast bottom sections. Special precast inlet boxes are also manufactured for use in highway median sloped ditch checks.
Flared End Sections
Precast flared end sections for culverts are manufactured with the groove end on the outlet and tongue end on the inlet section of the culvert in diameters of 12" - 84".
Bends, Tees, Wyes and Curves
Bends are furnished in standard ranges of 15 degrees angular deflections although specials can be manufactured to meet any required deflection. The bend is formed by cutting the pipe barrel to the desired bevel, spot welding, or tying together the exposed reinforcing, and mortising the seams with cement mortar. Pipe bends should be equal in design strength to the abutting pipe.
