Electrofusion is the only heat fusion procedure that does not require longitudinal movement of one of the joining components. Quality assurance testing, which often takes longer and is more complex t o perform than is practical for QC purposes, is conducted t o give greater and final assurance of product quality and compliance. The DSC test measures the induction zyx time to the onset of degradation and the temperature at which degradation begins.

The typical tolerance for PE pipe wall thickness is plus 12 percent, so the accepted practice is to assume that the average wall t, is 6 percent thicker than the specified minimum t.

It is also typical that tensile strength at yield and tensile strength at break are similar awww that is, once the material yields, the load required to continue specimen elon- gation and eventually break the specimen changes very little. 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.

Additionally, QC tests are conducted on the pipe during production on a regular basis to further ensure the qual- ity of the finished product. If the weight-center of the load wawa farther out on the forks, lifting capacity is reduced.

The code letters for color and W stabilizer are A-for natural B-for colored C-for black with minimum 2 percent carbon black D-for natural with UV stabilizers E-for colored with W stabilizers PE pipe compounds are typically black with a minimum of 2 percent carbon black, C, or colored with W stabilizers, E.


Verify that the deflection caused by external loads does not exceed the allow- able value. Abdelrahman Owais marked it as to-read Nov 24, These tests include but are not limited to the following: Conventional heat fusion includes butt, saddle or sidewall, and socket fusion.

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.

The ATV methodology is much more detailed regarding trench-pipe interaction and does a deeper analysis about the intervention of each of the variables. For example, the pressure rating of a PE pipe relates directly to the hydrostatic zy design basis HDB of the material awww which it is produced.

When vacuum can occur in the pipe, it is usually prudent to check whether the pipe can withstand the vacuum, Pv, without soil support if the depth is shallower than anticipated or pipe is uncovered. The ATV A methodology is more conservative when aewa to the treatment of the “long term” analysis, especially in the case of thermoplastic materials, as it considers that the pipe will be permanently loaded in time and, therefore, it has to be always verified for every long 5m5 load using the materials long term properties creep module, ultimate stresses.

I t is intended for 5m5 by utilities and municipalities of all sizes, whether as a reference book or textbook for those not fully familiar with HDPE pipe and fittings products.

Throughout the length of the screw, the temperature of the plastic is closely moni- tored and controlled. For other fluid and service temperature, ratings may differ. It is widely used in Europe and its content exclusively covers the methodology for calculations of all kinds of pipes.

At these higher stress levels, the materials begin to deform such that the original dimensions are not recoverable. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Fatigue Each time a PE pipe is pressurized or subjected to hydraulic transients, its circumfer- ence expands and unrestrained length decreases in an elastic manner. More recently, PE pressure piping materials have been developed to resist stress crack initiation to such an awwx that they now cannot be adequately charac- terized by ASTM D In the figure below an example can be seen of the obtained results i.


Beyond the printer, the pipe is cut to the correct length and dropped into a storage or bundling cart.

The recommended methodology of structural calculation is one of the ten chapters that the manual contains and is exclusive for HDPE pipes although the guidelines are common to the AWWA manuals of other types of pipes. Abrading the mating saddle fitting surface. However, strain does become important when the pipe undergoes higher, cyclic pres- surization.

However, these considerations are not taken into account by AWWA at any time. To understand the significance of this statement, one must first understand the nature of slow crack growth and pipe failure in general.

Materials must be tested to establish that their minimum long-term hydrostatic strength is in compliance with the require- ments of the applicable AWWA product standard. Typical strings are R to 1, R or longer. Pipe and fabricated fittings and structures are usually shipped on flatbed trailers. These new materials that have base resin densities as high as 0. These differences are illustrated by the Moody diagram Figure in which the Darcy-Weisbach factor of Eq is plotted against the Reynolds number Rea parameter swwa is defined awqa follows: That is, the material deforms but will over time recover its original shape when the stress is removed.

A surcharge load not located directly over a pipe may still exert pressure on the zyxwvu zyxwv zy pipe. This technique, which precludes awa the need for specially modified pipe ends or couplings, produces a permanent, econom- ical, and flow-efficient joint. Qua1ification Testing There are qualification requirements imposed on both the material and end product. This type of failure is typically obtained under conditions of extreme laboratory testing.
