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....
2018 Las-Vegas : Preparation and studying of thermoplastic cross-linked polyethylene
Author(s) : Cheng Zhi, Mingyuan Hu, Kaige Duan, Chaoxi Zhou, Dongming Yu
The PE properties are obviously improved by crosslinking modified to TPEX, which can approach to that of PEX, while still remaining thermoplastic. It can be processed by the common forming method of thermoplastic; the products can be hot-melted and the scrap can be processed to be reused. The two-layer structure...
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...
2016 Berlin : Underground engineering stress analysis of plastic inspection chambers
Author(s) : Zhang Wei, Wei Ruoqi, Zhou Minghong, Zhou Mingwei,
This article gives a brief introduction of plastic inspection chambers underground test, analyzes the stress borne by plastic inspection chambers from different angles combined with pressure sensors and strain gauges, sorts out some of the underground test data and analyzes the test data, and finally sums up the...
2014 Chicago : An Assessment of the Approach to Validate Polyethylene Pipe in Potable Water Systems
Author(s) : Dr. Ken Oliphant, Patrick Vibien, Dr. Michael Conrad, Sarah Chung
A new methodology has been developed to validate the performance of polyethylene piping materials in potable water applications. The methodology is based on several research programs which examined a standardized accelerated test methodology (ASTM F2263 Standard Test Method for Evaluating the Oxidative Resistance of...
2014 Chicago : Essential Variables of Heat Fusion Joining of Polyethylene Pipe
Author(s) : Dr. Z. Jimmy Zhou, Jim Johnston
Heat fusion joining method has been widely used for thermoplastic piping materials such as polyethylene to form the “one-material” pipeline system. No additional 3rd party materials such as an adhesive are needed. The fusion procedures to ensure the quality of the joints could be different for different materials and...
2014 Chicago : Study on Structural Integrity of Plastic Inspection Chambers
Author(s) : Zhang Wei, Wei Ruoqi, Zhou Minghong, Zhou Mingwei, Lin Baoshu, Xiao Lingli
The plastic inspection chamber is one of the rapidly developing products in the field of drainage in China for the past few years. At present, plastic inspection chamber is mainly made of PP, PE, PVC and so on. The manufacturing technologies include injection molding, rotational molding, mechanical assembly and...
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...
2012 Barcelona : Ligament Stress Regression of Notched PE100/PE4710 Pipe
Author(s) : Z. Jimmy Zhou
(Keywords : Polyethylene pipe, ligament stress, regression, notch depth, lifetime.)
Hydrostatic test was conducted on notched PE100/PE4710 black pipe specimens at
various temperatures and stresses. Hoop stresses were normalized to ligament
stresses by taking into consideration of the effect of wall thickness reduction...
2012 Barcelona : The application of plastic inspection chamber for drainage in China
Author(s) : Zhou Minhong
As the key component of underground piping network for drainage, plastic inspection
chambers have many major advantages and are also being applied more and more
widely instead of traditional brick-built ones. Users become familiar with this new
technique gradually. However there are two major problems which have...
