How will the Lifetime of Different Multi-Layer Pipes be Affected when Exposed to a Circulation Loop [PE]

 

# 2004 Milan

The lifetime of plastic pipes has been studied at Bodycote Polymer AB for more than 30 years. This paper will compare two test methodologies for evaluating multi-layer pipes. An attempt will be made to investigate antioxidant consumption as a function of exposure time for three different PE based multi-layer pipes exposed in a circulation loop, compared with the results from pipes that have been hydrostatically pressure tested. Preliminary lifetime predictions will be made allowing comparison between pipes exposed in a circulation loop and those hydrostatically pressure tested.

Problems sometimes occur in tightness testing of plastic pipelines using pressurized water and accounting for the diametrical expansion, particularly so for larger sizes and higher pressure rating. Pipelines that are in fact tight enough for acceptance are rejected when first tested. A study consisting of two parts...
