1 SCOPE AND PURPOSE ASME/ANSI A112.19.5-1979, Trim for Water 1.1 PurDose The purpose of this Standard is to establish a na- tionally recognized standard for plumbing fixtures of non-vitreous ceramic, including fixtures containing components of other recognized materials, for the guidance of manufacturers, distributors, and pur- chasers to promote better understanding between suppliers and users; and to furnish a basis for fair competition in furnishing such plumbing fixtures to meet the principal demands of the trade. 1.2 Scope This Standard covers physical requirements and test methods pertaining to material, grading, dimen- sions, certain features of construction, and types and sizes of plumbing fixtures of non-vitreous ceramic currently in general use and demand. Also given are definitions, inspection methods, and tests which es- tablish generally acceptable quality standards. Fix- tures included in this Standard are water closet tanks, lavatories, urinals without integral trap, bidets, bathtubs, shower receptors, kitchen and bar sinks, service sinks, and drinking fountains. The values stated in U.S. Customary units are to be regarded as the standard. 2 REFERENCED STANDARDS The following standards are referenced in this doc- ument. When the revisions to these standards are prepared, the updated edition shall apply. Closet Bowls, Tanks, and Urinals ASME/ANSI A112.19.6M-1990, Hydraulic Per- formance for Water Closets and Urinals ANSI A117.1-1986, Standard Specification for Making Buildings and Facilities Accessible and Us- able by Physically Handicapped People ANSI/ARI 1010-1984, Drinking Fountains and Self-contained, Mechanically Refrigerated Drinking Water Coolers ANSUASSE 1001-1982, Pipe Applied Vacuum Breakers
integrul – a part cast integrally with the fixture such as a bubbler, trap, or seat non-vitreous ceramic – for the purpose of this Stan- dard, compound ceramic materials fired at high tem- perature, coated with ceramic glaze fused to the body, which does not peel or craze. Non-vitreous ce- ramic materials are classified as semi-vitreous, fire- clay, or earthenware based on grain size and percentage of absorption (see paras. 4.1.1 and 7.1). permanent – for the purpose of marking in this Stan- dard, permanent shall be fired, cast, sandblasted, em- bossed, stamped, etched, or otherwise not removable except by excessive work or extraordinary means (see Section 8) pinhole – a small hole in the glazed surface up to and including V16 in. (2 mm) in maximum dimension pit – a hole in the glazed surface larger than in. (2 mm) in diameter polkhing mark – a spot not larger than ’/* in. (10 mm) in maximum dimension where some minor blemish has been removed by polishing pottev square – a square 2 in. (50 mm) on each side. For grading purposes, it may be a 2 in. (50 mm) square hole cut in a small sheet of any flexible rna- terial, such as rubber or paper, for convenience in sliding over irregular surfaces to determine segrega- tion pressurized flushing devices – a product which uses the water supply to create a pressurized discharge to flush the fixture exclusive of gravity type flushing sys- tems. Flushometer valves and flushometer tanks are examples of pressurized flushing devices. This term may be called a pressurized flushing device in this Standard (see ASSE 1037). projection – a raised portion of the surface over V4 in. (6 mm) in maximum dimension rim – the unobstructed open edge of a fixture rouglzing-in nzeasurement – dimension from finished wall or floor-to-center of waste or supply opening or mounting holes
segregation – more than four spots, blisters, or pin- holes in any pottery square semi-vitreous – one type of non-vitreous ceramic (see para. 4.1.1) speck – an area of contrasting color less than in. (1 mm) in maximum dimension. Specks less than in. (0.3 mm) in maximum dimension, unless in sufficient number to form a discoloration, are not counted spot – an area of contrasting color in. (1 mm) up to and including in. (3 mm) in maximum di- mension spot (large) – an area of contrasting color greater than in. (3 mm) in maximum dimension spud – a threaded assembly inserted in the vitreous chinaware trap – a fitting or device so designed and constructed as to provide, when properly vented, a liquid seal which will prevent the backpassage of sewer gas with- out materially affecting the flow of sewage or wastewater through it trim – parts other than china regularly supplied with a fixture, as for example, closet spuds, wall hangers, and tank trim. Trim does not include fittings (see ANSI A112.19.5M). urinal – a plumbing fixture which receives liquid body waste and, on demand, conveys the waste through a trap seal into a gravity drainage system visible surjace – the surface that is readily visible to an observer in a normal standing position after in- stallation of the fixture wavy finish – a defect in the finish having the ap- pearance of numerous runs in the glaze, irregular or mottled
