- Find the wall thickness in the corresponding column.
- This will reveal the nominal pipe size and the schedule.
What schedule is XH?
Extra Heavy (XH) is used to describe the minimum wall thicknesses for pipe and some pipe fittings. For sizes up to 8″, XH is the same wall thickness as schedule 80. Although the “XH” description is not the most accurate, it is still very commonly used and implies the same as schedule 80.
