PE pressure pipe

HDPE Pipe technical guidance (High quality Polyethylene Pipes)
 
How do our customers normally design a PE pipe for given operating conditions?

First they need to decide what the pipe is to be designed for; Internal pressure capability e.g. water or gas distribution main External pressure capability e.g. submerged pipeline Soil loading e.g....

What is the recommended maximum operating pressure for a PE pipe?

Relationship between MOP, MRS & SDR The relationship between the maximum operating pressure (MOP), the minimum required strength of the PE pipe grade (MRS) and the pipe geometry (SDR standard...

How do customers allow for surge and fatigue loading in the design?

Surge and fatigue occur in pipelines due to the normal operations of, for example, pumps shutting down or valves being operated quickly. Due to the incompressible nature of liquids the phenomenon is...
