Jointing of large bore PE pipes [PE]

# 2012 Barcelona

A New Generation of Electrofusion : A technical comparison between the new wedge coupler and the traditional cylindrical coupler for PE pipes d1000 (40”) and above. FRIATEC has developed a totally new concept of electrofusion jointing method for large bore PE pipes, d1000 mm (40”) and above. The new method completely revolts existing practice with respect to easy installation, fast progress and minimal energy consumption. Compared with standard EF fittings in large dimensions the new technique allows a dramatically reduction in processing time, eases installation and does not require additional devices on site. Basic design criterion of the fittings is maximum reliability in processing of the joint under rough site conditions as well as durable operation of the pipe system. The presentation introduces the new concept, shows the advantages of the new method and highlights processing with respect to practical and economical aspects.

New types of saddle fittings enable convenient and economic ways of installing branches or vents on PE pipes. In conjunction with a gate valve, branches can even be installed without disrupting service, by "hot tapping" the main pipe. In addition, pipes with localized damage such as excessively deep scratches or...

In the Middle East the environment is exceptionally aggressive for all pipe systems due to the high temperatures, the high groundwater table and the very saline soils. This obviously makes metallic pipes and cement based pipes high risk options but it also poses challenges for polyolefin (PO). In this paper the author...

Plastics Pipes for High-Pressure Applications - Jointing Techniques

Author(s) : Eckert 2006 Washington DC

The use of plastic pipes has to date been limited to operating pressures of max 10 bar / 145 psi for gas supply and 16 bar / 230 psi (25bar / 360 psi) for water supply. Polyamide – the new high-performance material for gas pipes - and multi layer pipes with integrated reinforcement allows operating pressures to be...

Integration, Shut-Off and Repair Technology for PE Pipe Systems
