For PE of a given density, the effect of increasing molecular weight on physical properties is shown in Table Because most PE pipe resins do not break under this test, the true flexural strength of these materials cannot be determined.

While the pipe is being sized, it is also being cooled with water t awaa set the outside diameter. Misama marked it as to-read Oct 19, Because of its viscoelastic nature, the response of PE piping systems to loading is time-dependent.

The Handbook of Polyethylene Pipe, Plas- Density affects many of the physical properties associated with the performance of the finished pipe.

Extremely sharp razor notches are cut across the speci- men awa a specified depth of the specimen thickness.

Piping products produced from resins that maintain a slow crack growth cell classification of 4 have been successfully used for decades in potable water applications. Heat Fusion Joining There are two methods for producing heat fusion joints: The definitions for pressure class, recurring and occasional surge, working pressure and working pressure rated for polyethylene pipe are provided as an introduction to this section for reference.

This occurs as the soil in the backfill settles and works its way down- ward. These procedures ensure the cleanliness and segregation of the materials until they are incorporated in the product manufacturing process.

The value of E’ increases with increasing depth of cover.

When applying each method in performing static calculations of pipes, the following differences can be observed: The descriptions and quantities on the packing list should match those on the pur- chase order or the order acknowledgment. The relative stiffness of the piping material as reflected in the flexural modulus is specified to be betweenandpsi per ASTM D by the designation of a 5 in the third character position of the D cell class designation.

While the pipe is adequate to resist the positive pressure shown in the shaded areas of the table, negative pressure must be prevented from exceeding 1. Provisions for flotation of shallow cover pipe have been provided.


The manual provides the user with both technical and general information to aid in the design, specification, procurement, installation, and understanding of the high-density poly- ethylene HDPE pipe and fittings.

These tests include but are not limited to the following: PE pipe can safely withstand considerable deformation and is therefore classified as a flexible pipe. Tensile Strength Tensile strength is a short-term property that provides a basis for classification or zyxwvu comparison when established at specific conditions of temperature and rate of loading but is of limited significance from a design perspective. 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.

Alternatively, awws reader is referred to the pipe manufacturer who may have actual field experience under similar specific service conditions. Actual truckloads and packaging may vary from the illustrations.

Unloading equipment must be capable of safely lifting and moving pipe, fit- tings, fabrications, or other components. Marshall and his colleagues determined that today’s tough PE pipe formulations can withstand sustained periods of high frequency surging ranging from 1to 50 cycles per hour at magnitudes of up to percent of the pipe’s static pressure rating with no indication of fatigue and no reduction in long-term serviceability when properly installed.

It is considered inert in that it will neither support nor deter the growth or propagation of micro- or macro-organisms. Modern PE materials formulated specifically for pressure pipe applica- tions are designed to resist the initiation of this slow crack growth phenomena even when subjected to millions of cycles of pressure transients.

As illus- trated in Figurethis series of equipment, commonly referred to as an extrusion line, generally consists of the extruder, the pipe die, sizing and cooling tanks, pipe puller, saw, and take-off equipment. Beyond the printer, the pipe is cut to the correct length and dropped into a storage or bundling cart.

A higher molecular weight relates to an increase in certain physical properties as shown in Table To assist the designer in the selection of PE for piping applications, chemical resis- tance charts have been published that provide some basic guidelines regarding the suitability of PE as a piping material in the presence of various chemicals.


State zyxwv transportation restrictions on length, height, and width usually govern allowable load configurations. Surge pressure is the maximum hydraulic transient pres- sure increase sometimes called water hammer in excess of the operating pressure that is anticipated in the system as the result of sudden changes in velocity of the water column.

In this test, PE specimens are prepared and pulled in a controlled environment at a constant rate of strain. Additionally, QC tests are conducted on the pipe during production on a regular basis to further ensure the qual- ity of the finished product. Minor scratches or scuffing will not impair serviceabil- ity of the PE pipe and fittings. The amount of deformation per unit length is termed the strain, and the force per cross-sectional area is termed the stress.

Properly extruded, PE pipe has an extremely smooth surface, which provides minimal opportunity for the precipitation of minerals such as calcium carbonate and the like onto the interior sur- face. Values applicable only for fills less than 50 ft 15 m.

Generally, thermoplastic pipes remain geometrically stable up to deflections of 25 to 30 percent. In light of this, it is recommended that the designer use responsible judgment in the interpreta- tion of this type of data and its utilization for design purposes. A PE aawa system that is subjected to recurring surges over its service life will experience a greater number of surge events compared to a system that is subjected to occasional surges.

Deflection promotes arching, allows the pipe to shed load, and develops supporting reactions in the surrounding soil. The effect of both the Reynolds num- ber and the roughness of the pipe wall on the friction factor in this region has been defined based on extensive experimental data.

This internationally recognized standard on quality poli- cies and procedures details specific criteria which the manufacturer m55 verify com- pliance with customer and industry specifications. Specialized equipment that straightens and rounds m5 pipe at the time of installation may be required.
