UL 1365:2018 free download Outline of Investigation for Corrugated Medical Tubing (CMT) systems
1 Scope
1.1 This outline covers corrugated medical tubing systems intended for use in hospitals and healthcenters for distribution of nonflammable medical gas in accordance with the Standard for Health CareFacilities,NFPA 99.
1.2 CMT systems are intended for inside aboveground and in slab,when installed in approvednonmetallic conduit,applications only.
1.3 This outline covers medical tubing systems up to 2 inches (50.8 mm), based on the nominal insidediameter of the tubing.
1.4 These products have not been evaluated for use after fires, natural disasters such as earthquakes, orexcessive physical damage beyond the expected assembly, installation and uses as identified in theserequirements.
1.5 These products are intended to be periodically inspected and maintained for continued service, ortaken out of service if necessary by qualified persons in accordance with industry recommended practicesand/or the manufacturer’s instructions.
