A chemical stabilizer system is typically added to the PE to prevent the generation of these free radicals.

The main distinction between conventional sad- dle fusion and electrofusion is the method by which the heat is applied to the surface of the pipe 5m5 the fitting. Kumar marked it as to-read Aug 30, This manual provides users of PE pipe and fittings in potable water aqwa with both technical and general information on design, specification, procurement, and installation. PE pipe can safely withstand considerable deformation and is therefore classified as a flexible pipe. Table influence coefficient terms depicted in Figure are defined j55 In the trench, it is recom- zyx mended to remove the machine from the pipe, rather than lift the pipe out of the machine.

While the pipe is being sized, it is also being cooled with water t o set the outside diameter.

Occasional aawwa pressures are usually the result of a malfunc- tion, such as a power failure or system component failure, which includes pump seize-up, valve-stem failure, and pressure-relief valve-failure. The strain in this region is referred to as the elastic strain because it is reversible.


Buckling must be considered for all events applying external pressures.

Yasser marked it as to-read Aug 27, The final numerical designation relates to the hydrostatic design basis of the mater- ial used to produce the pipe so specified. During transport, a load on forks that are too short or too close together, or a load too far out on the forks, may become unstable and pitch forward or to the side and result in damage to the load or property or hazards to persons.

Internal bead removal is not necessary because its effect on hydraulic flow is negligible. The resulting damage was attributed to the need for the rodent to maintain their teeth in good condition and the damage associated with gnawing on the profile was felt to be no greater with PE than with any other piping materials installed in these areas.

Fabio added it Jun 18, The reader is referred to Chap- ter 8 of this manual for more information regarding control of pull-out forces. To accomplish this, one or more cooling tanks are set up downstream of the sizing sleevehank, and the pipe is pulled through each. Conventional socket fusion may be used with 4-in.

The result is a piping system of uniform color that does not chalk, scale, or m555 dust in response to extended periods of outdoor exposure. This effect is offset in part by the tendency of the internal pressure to reround the pipe. Assume 2 percent ovality.

Calculate the WPR for a n 8-in. A saddle fusion machine that has been designed for this purpose is required. Directional drilled pipe typically does not have side support as provided by the embedment for pipe installed in trenches.

Look for fractures, kinking, deep gouges, or cuts. To this end, Bowman and Marshall et al. But, to a lesser extent, it is also affected by pipe diameter, water velocity, and water temperature.


At some point, this intensified stress at the flaw will exceed the strength of the material and a small crack may develop.

At the fusing station, pipe lengths are stockpiled near the fusion machine. In the ATV the use of sheet piling or coatings to contain the walls of the trench, and its removal methodology once installed the trench fill, acquires importance. Through a statistical analysis of the nature of both of the curves, information regarding the performance of the material under other service temperatures can be determined.

As a further precau- tion against Type I11 failure, the HDPE pipe industry has investigated the resistance of these products to failure under conditions of flowing potable water service.

Small fittings are packaged in cartons, which may be shipped individually by package carriers. The following method for finding the pressure acting on the pipe at a given depth directly below a surface load is based on the Boussinesq equationg.

With continued exposure over time, these contaminants can permeate from the soil into the pipe itself either through the wall of a plastic pipe or through the elastomeric gas- keted joint of a mechanically joined piping system.
