- NEW GENERATION OF PRE-INSULATED FLEXIBLE PLASTIC HEATING PIPES
Author(s) : Miron Gorilovskiy, Alexander Shmelev, Dmitry Ostrovsky 2012 Barcelona
European demand in flexible pre-insulated plastic pipes is limited to max 70C@10bar or max 95C@6 bar applications and can be fulfilled by mono layer cross-linked polyethylene carrier pipe with up to 110mm in diameter. Infrastructure of former USSR mega district heating networks require combined higher temperatures,...
- New High Performance Tie-Layer Adhesives Selected for Multilayer Pipe Applications
Author(s) : Botros Maged 2012 Barcelona
Keywords: pipe, multi-layer pipe, tie-layer, adhesive, adhesion This paper describes the use of tie-layer adhesives in multi-layer pipe (MLP) and barrier pipe applications. Tie-layers are used to provide strong bonding between the polyolefin layer and the metal in MLP applications, and between the polyolefin and...
- NEW TECHNOLOGY ON ORIENTED PVC
Author(s) : Rob G. Spekreijse 2012 Barcelona
Although OPVC (equal to PVC-O) exists already for 4 decades, it is only the last 10 years beneficial for production due to better-developed technologies and widespread acceptance by different standards and norms. The rise of the environmental question to produce with lower material use, lower energy use and better...
- NON-DESTRUCTIVE AND IN-SITU DETERMINATION OF THE DEGREE OF GELATION OF PVC PIPES
Author(s) : Emiel Drenth, Ton Bor, Roy Visser and Mannes Wolters 2012 Barcelona
Various non-destructive methods, based on different physical principles, were investigated for their ability to differentiate between uPVC pipes having various levels of gelation. It was found that the micro-hardness method was not able to differentiate between uPVC samples of different levels of gelation. A...
- PE Pipes in the Oil and Gas Industry
Author(s) : Adhyatmabhattar Mohana Murali 2012 Barcelona
The Oil and Gas Industry uses many kilometres of pipe work to transport fluids from the wellhead to storage and processing units. These conventional steel pipes suffer from corrosion and other related problems and have to be replaced regularly to avoid spillage, but now some operators are considering more cost...

Key Words: PE100, Coal Seam Gas, Water The coal seam gas projects in Australia are undergoing a massive expansion, with greatly increased gas production for both domestic and export markets. Total investment is expected to be in excess of AUD $30b. PE100 has been selected as the material of choice for the gas...
- PERFORMANCE AND SUSTAINABILITY ADVANTAGES OF PVC SEWER PIPES IN AUSTRALIA
Author(s) : Alan Whittle, Nigel Jones and Mark Heathcote 2012 Barcelona
PVC has been used successfully for sewer and sanitary drainage pipes in Australia for over 40 years. It is the predominant material for these applications. The reason for this success is the superior, all round performance of PVC piping systems compared to the various alternatives. Equally important has been the...
- Performance of Multilayer PE100 pipes upon ageing to chlorine dioxide disinfectants
Author(s) : David Hill Jean Carmier 2012 Barcelona
A multilayer pipe named Excel Plus® made with a protective inner layer in PVDF was developed by GPS PE Pipe Systems, an Aliaxis group subsidiary. In order to assess, in accelerated mode, the resistance of this pipe against chlorine dioxide, a test sample exposure facility was built at the Aliaxis corporate R&D...
