Author(s) : M. Eckes & Dr. B. Baudrit, Dr. M. Troughton & D. Wylie, H. van Laak & J. Fritz
Unplasticized polyamide 12 (PA-U12) is increasingly being used in pipe applications,
especially in the gas sector. However, the material behavior in the usual quality tests for
pipe welds has not yet been thoroughly investigated.
For this reason, two research institutes, worked in cooperation with a manufacturer
2016 Berlin : 21 years of pipeline training - The lessons learnt
Author(s) : Robert LeHunt
Nationally moderated and approved competency training Units and Qualifications have been established in Australia for plastics pipes within an overall Plastics Industry Training Package. Delivery of such Units over a 21 year period has contributed to a greater understanding of various plastics pipes materials,...
2016 Berlin : Big data, big difference
Author(s) : Nick Mark, Eric Bridgstock, David Carey
An insight into a unique approach to the management of electrofusion and butt fusion joint quality on polyethylene pipelines. The presentation will reference experience and learnings from a system that has already been used in the field to great effect (see Abstract) and a new approach to butt fusion (see enclosed...
2016 Berlin : Latest technology of saddle scraper for polyethylene pipe
Author(s) : Takehiro Fujii, Hideo Hirabayashi, Kazushi Yamada, Hiroyuki Nishimura
It is important to stabilize the scraped surface of the polyethylene pipe, even if some operator scrape the surface of the polyethylene pipe. In Japan this automatic saddle scraper is widely used for improving workability and plumbing quality
The newly developed “Automatic saddle scraper” consists of the casing unit...
2014 Chicago : 1600mm PE Pipe Installation Saves Power Supply in Victoria, Australia
Author(s) : Dr Predrag Micic, Mr Gerald Beckton
The urgent diversion of a river through a rapidly constructed pipeline was required to avert a power supply crisis to the state of Victoria. In early June 2012, the Morwell River surged and a levee collapsed allowing the river to flow directly into the open cut coal mine which supplies the Yallourn power station. The...
2014 Chicago : A Training and Certification Standard for Fusion Welding of PE Pipes
Author(s) : Edward Ingham, Mike Shepherd
Exova has previously demonstrated that under normal operating conditions PE 100 pipes would be expected to have a lifetime of over 200 years, but in the UK concerns have been reported about relatively high failure rates within the water utilities of fusion joints, particularly for large diameter pipes. For some time,...
