2018 Las-Vegas : A new flexible jointing method of plastic (PE) pipes
Author(s) : Yilaing He, Tianjun Zhang
A new electrofusion PE belt is developed by reinforcing it with various layers of steel mesh. It’s of sandwich structure, consisting of steel mesh reinforcement, heating wire and polyethylene. One or more layers of steel mesh is encapsulated in the middle, and heating wire is embedded onto “inner side” of the belt....
2016 Berlin : Structural wall multilayer composite PE pipe
Author(s) : Sun Qingjun, Liu Tongxi and Zhang Tianjun
A new composite PE pipe for pressure applications has been developed which combines the following features: polyethylene based, of structural wall, of multiple layers and steel reinforced. Another outstanding feature of this product is that large diameters up to dn2200-2600mm can be made and higher ring stiffness is...

2014 Chicago : The Influence of Additive Levels on PE-Xa Pipe Performance
Author(s) : Zhang SiLiang, Zhang ShuangQuan, Guo XiaoLing, Ren YunHong, Wang MingKe
This article describes the effect of additive, light and high temperature on PE-X pipe’s performance. By additive amount changes, will be have different influence to pipe’s brittleness resistance, bending strength, and aging resistance. As cross-linking agent’s content increasing, bending strength enhanced, but...
2012 Barcelona : Effect of Environmental Temperatures on PE Water Pipe Application
Author(s) : Zhang Zhihao, Zheng Xiaoming
PE pipes have been used for many years in China. However, due to lack for engineering experience, some failure or leakages caused by PE pipe axial shrinkage have occurred in practice. In particular leaks were observed at or near the joints between metal and PE pipes. Suspecting that the cause of the leakage was the...
2006 Washington DC : S4 Critical Pressure and Critical Temperature
Author(s) : Maeger, Vanspeybroeck, Lamborn, Mamoun, Leevers, Oliphant
As polyethylene pressure pipes enter the global marketplace under an ever-wider range of
operating conditions, there is increasing emphasis on their rapid crack propagation
performance. It is important that both producers and end-users are able to rely on the
robustness of the rapid crack propagation test results and...
