INVESTIGATION AND COMPARISON OF ACCELERATED PIPE TESTING DATA WITH TRUE PIPE INSTALLATIONS IN CONTACT WITH CHLORINE DIOXIDE AS DISINFECTANT

Papers # 2012 Barcelona

This paper discusses the mechanisms responsible for the degradation of polyolefin pipes in chlorine dioxide. Studies of random co-polymer polypropylene, PP-R pipes that have been exposed in service connected to ClO2 disinfection systems are compared to data generated at accelerated laboratory conditions. The test method of ASTM F2023 with chlorine dioxide has been used to generate the accelerated chlorine oxidative data. Post exposure investigations used in this study focus on failure mechanism, morphology studies, additive degradation and polymer degradation. Findings are aimed to give guidance of the ASTM F2023 method’s suitability for ClO2 studies and include also a discussion of accelerated testing using high concentration of chlorine as acceleration parameter versus accelerated testing with relatively low concentrations, similar to those find in service, and high temperature.

This work presents the development of the Full Length Tensile Test (FLTT), a method that enables an objective judgement of welding quality of electrofusion welds by measuring the energy to break (J/mm2 ). In this way a brittle, ductile and transitional mode failure can be differentiated without subjective visual...

WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO SCRAPE THE PIPES PRIOR TO ELECTROFUSION - IS THERE REALLY AN OXIDE SKIN?

Author(s) : Karin Jacobson, Daniel Ejdeholm, Rikard Kärrbrant, Kenth Olsson 2016 Berlin

IT IS WELL KNOWN THAT IT IS NECESSARY TO SCRAPE OFF A 0.2 MM OUTER LAYER OF A POLYETHYLENE (PE) PIPE SURFACE AT THE LOCATION FOR THE ELECTROFUSION WELD PRIOR TO WELDING. THE REASON FOR THIS PROCEDURE IS SAID TO BE REMOVAL OF AN OXIDIZED LAYER WHICH CAN RESTRICT MOLECULAR DIFFUSION ACROSS THE WELDING INTERFACE LEADING...

Polyethylene is the leading material for new installation of drinking water pipes in Sweden. The material is recognized by the market as a flexible, light weight and an inexpensive solution. The material is ideal for water piping, however the lifetime is only guaranteed for 50 years. This is a problematic limitation...
