Corrugated Pipe Adapter

The corrugated pipe adapter gasket is a rubber adapter ring that fits closely into the corrugation of the pipe, creating a smooth exterior diameter for connecting the pipe to a manhole or other types of structures.

It can be used with a variety of flexible connectors such as the PSX: Direct Drive or PSX: Nylo Drive.

The adapter is required to create a seal between boot-type connectors and corrugated pipe to meet or exceed the requirements of ASTM F 2510 and ASTM D 2321 for storm or sanitary collection systems.

How It Works

  • The adapter is stretched over the pipe like a rubber band and the lobe then fits snug inside the valley of the corrugation.
  • The pipe is inserted into the structure under the clamp area of the flexible connector.
  • The series 304 stainless steel take-up clamp(s) is tightened around the connector creating the seal between pipe, adapter and structure. Always use a T-handle torque wrench set to 60-inch pounds when installing the take-up clamps.

This rubber adapter meets or exceeds:

  • ASTM F 2510: Standard Specification for Resilient Connectors Between Reinforced Concrete Manhole Structures and Corrugated High Density Polyethylene Drainage Pipes
  • ASTM C1478 Standard Specification for Storm Drain Resilient Connectors Between Reinforced Concrete Storm Sewer Structures, Pipes and Laterals
  • ASTM D 2321 – Standard Practice for Underground
    Installation of Thermoplastic Pipe for Sewers and
    Other Gravity-Flow Applications, Section 7.10 –
    Manhole Connections
Download Specification

 

A rubber corrugated pipe adapter and flexible boot-type connector shall be employed in the connection of the ADS corrugated storm or sanitary sewer pipe to precast manholes or other structures. The adapter shall be ADS Pipe Adapter as manufactured by Press-Seal Corporation, Fort Wayne, Indiana, or approved equal. The flexible boot-type connector shall be PSX: Direct Drive as manufactured by Press-Seal Corporation, Fort Wayne, Indiana, or approved equal.

The adapter shall be the sole element relied on to assure a flexible, watertight seal of the pipe to the flexible connector and through the connector to the manhole or other structure. The adapter shall consist of a rubber gasket which fits closely into the corrugation of the pipe.

The rubber gasket element shall be constructed solely of synthetic or natural rubber, and shall meet or exceed the requirements of ASTM F 2510, ASTM C 1478, and ASTM D 2321, Section 7.10 – Manhole Connections.

Selection of the proper size adapter for the pipe requirement, and installation thereof, shall be in strict conformance with the recommendations of the adapter manufacturer.

The finished connection (pipe adapter and flexible boot-type connector) shall provide sealing to 10.8 psi (minimum) and shall accommodate angular deflection of the pipe to 7 degrees (minimum), and diametric deflection of 5% (minimum) with no loss of seal, as documented by test reports required by ASTM F 2510 and ASTM C 1478.

Testing of installed adapters and connectors shall be conducted in strict conformance with the requirements of the adapter and connector manufacturer.
