Large orders may be palletized and shipped in enclosed vans. Creep refers to the response of PE, over time, to a constant static load. PE pipe, fittings, and fabrications are shipped by commercial carriers who are responsible for the products from the time they leave the manufacturing plant until the receiver accepts them. Facing the component ends being joined. This involves rotating the machine around the pipe, then lifting it off, or dropping the machine down below the pipe and moving it to the side to clear the pipe.

When the pipe is received, it should be visu- ally inspected to verify that the correct product was received. In those few cases where the PSs may be excessive, the WPR may be reduced to accommodate the additional surge.

In this test, PE specimens are prepared and pulled in a controlled environment at a constant rate of strain. In some cases, entrapped air that is rapidly vented can greatly raise fluid pressures causing damage to pipe a n d o r pipe components. When subjected to a constant strain deformation of a specific degree that is maintained over time, the load or stress generated by the deformation slowly decreases over time.

Nonpalletized pipe, fittings, or fabrications should be unloaded from above with lifting equipment and wide web slings, or from the side with a forklift.

To this end, many pipe producers are certified in accordance with the requirements of IS0 Setup time is minimized when pipe lengths are fed through the machine and joined into long strings. The apparent modulus of elasticity of the HDPE pipe material ispsi.

The pipe stiffener is positioned in the pipe bore so that its location is under the gasket and the gripping device if applicable of the fitting. PE pipe base resins in the range of 0.

An abrupt change in the velocity of a flowing liquid generates a pressure wave. Stab-type fittings are generally used on smaller pipe and tubing sizes. If a water pipe must pass through a contaminated area or an area subject to contamination, consult with pipe manufacturers regarding per- zyxwv meation of pipe walls, jointing materials, etc. The embedment materials are coarse-grained, stable, and have been compacted to at least 85 percent Standard Proctor Density.

Provisions for flotation of shallow cover pipe have been provided. Unloading personnel should get these instructions from the driver and review them before unloading the truck.

For use with heavier trucks, swwa table can be adjusted propor- tionally to the increased weight as long as the truck has the same tire area 10 in.

Determine the external loads applied to pipe. Rodrigo Moroni marked it as to-read May 03, Figure Typical injection molding machine zyxwvu Figure Prefabricated 90′ elbow being attached in field sizing, awsa finally cooling of the part.

Common additives used in PE pipe compounds include thermal processing stabilizers, long-term antioxidants, ultraviolet inhibitors, or screens. As these pipes undergo stress relaxation, the apparent modulus decreases and more deflection occurs.

The accepted convention is to design PE pipe as if internal and external loads act independently. Seal-only mechanical joining devices without restraint are not suitable for joining PE pressure piping.


For other fluid and service temperature, ratings may differ. Figure illustrates a typical electrofusion socket joint, and Figure illustrates an electrofusion control box and fitting.

Coverage includes engineering properties of polyethylene, manufacturing, hydraulics, external loads, j55, fittings, transportation, handling, and storage, installation, and maintenance.

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. Abdelrahman Owais marked it as to-read Nov 24, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

In the ATV the use ,55 sheet piling or coatings to contain the walls of the trench, and its removal methodology once installed the trench fill, acquires importance. Awda are also checked to ensure that they are as uniform as commercially practical in color opacity, density, and physical properties.

Alternatively, the reader is referred to the pipe manufacturer who may have actual field experience under similar specific service conditions. Electrofusion fittings have a heating element built into the fitting. Saddle Fusion Conventional saddle fusion.

Negative pressure should awea checked in accordance with the section Wall Buckling in Chapter 5. Injection molded fittings include tees, 45″ and 90″ elbows, reducers, couplings, caps, flange adapters and stub ends, branch and service saddles, and self-tapping saddle tees. PE is quite viscous in the molten state and can be easily fused to itself. Compressive Properties Compressive forces act in the opposite direction to tensile forces.
