Victaulic vs. Threaded steel pipe and fittings

@ November 28, 2005 2:25 PM in Victaulic vs Threaded Steel Pipe & Fittings

I currently submitted for approval victaulic pipe, valves, and fittings for heating hot water and chilled water piping 2-1/2" and above (which was listed in specs under products for piping systems). The engineer rejected my submittals because the specs call for in the "Execution section" that the HVAC piping systems are to be installed using "COPPER OR THREADED STEEL PIPE AND FITTINGS" for all sizes. When I tried to explain to the engineer and the owner that this was not an industry standard they did not want to hear it. Is there any information that can be provided to me that shows that Victaulic PVFs is an HVAC industry standard for piping systems 2-1/2" & above and that threaded steel pipe and fittings for 2-1/2" and above is NOT an industry standard?
