Extrudate Cooling of Medium Density Polyethylene Pipe Sections [PE]

 

# 1982 York

A model is presented for the prediction of cooling rates and temperature profiles during the cooling and solidification of M.D.P.E. pipes. Experimental measurements from an industrial production line are reported and these confirm the predictions of the model. Finally, the model is used to determine the most important process variables which influence the efficiency of cooling.

The water industry has used renovation techniques to extend the life of its assets for a number of years, beginning with sliplining in the 1970s. These techniques have evolved with time and the use of an interactive liner, where the liner withstands only some of the service loads, with the remainder borne by the host...

In recently designated plane strain grooved tensile (PSGT) methodology of ASTM F2018 standard, a groove in the direction perpendicular to the loading axis allows biaxial stress state to be generated under a uniaxial loading. The biaxial stress state produced very closely approximates the internally pressurized pipes...

Cast iron pipes have been loaded to failure using a four point bending geometry under displacement-controlled loading. Specimens were tested with various liner configurations : unlined, epoxy resin lined or lined with one of two interactive (semi-structural) liners. Some of the pipes also had a circumferential notch...

Polyolefin pipes subjected to extensive hoop stresses fail in a ductile manner (stage I). At lower stresses failure is brittle and may in certain cases be preceded by degradation of the polymer (stage 111). Reviewed in this paper are the changes in polymer structure and antioxidant concentration profiles preceding the...
