Performance of Multilayer PE100 pipes upon ageing to chlorine dioxide disinfectants [PE]

# 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 centre. The aim of this presentation is to describe the product and testing, and to report the findings in order to assist a better understanding of the behaviour of multilayer plastic pipes.

Maintaining dimensions within specifications is problematic for the extrusion of large diameter thick-wall polyethylene (PE) pipe (> 75 mm wall) due to sag caused by insufficient resin melt strength. However, sag can be controlled through careful resin selection and optimization of the pipe cooling process. This...

For the UK polyethylene (PE) gas pipe network, the first installations now exceed 40 years in the ground, with an original design life of 50 years. It was thus timely to review the current condition and performance history of these first generation PE materials. A major 4 year project was started in 2010 to examine...

The many benefits of PE100 pipe materials include flexibility and toughness in addition to being relatively light products that are not subject to corrosion and expected to last well beyond the design lifetime [1]. It is also a distinct advantage that end-load resistant joints can be made using butt fusion (BF) and...

QUALITY CONTROL TESTING OF JOINTS IN GRAVITY FLOW PLASTIC PIPES

Author(s) : David Becerril García, Jacinto Cortés-Pérez, Ian D. Moore 2016 Berlin

Joint performance of joints in gravity flow buried pipelines is very important since joint failure could produce structural or service limits to the system. Standards have been developed to evaluate that joints have the necessary structural and leakage capacities which specify test methods that are not clear and do...

Chemical and Temperature Resistance of Polyethylene Pipes for Industrial Applications

Author(s) : Dr. Amaia Bastero, David López Piquer 2014 Chicago

The industrial sector has traditionally used metal pipes for transporting a wide variety of chemicals and highly corrosive liquids. When metal pipes are exposed to aggressive media, their lifetime is considerably reduced. Polyethylene pipes, have demonstrated since the 1950s to be a safe, reliable and cost effective...

Development of a Slow Crack Growth Resistance (Strain Hardening) Test for Assessment of Ageing PE Pipeline Materials

Author(s) : Sonya Pemberton, David Chrystie-Lowe, Sabah Rafiq, Karolina Modelska, Edward Ingham 2014 Chicago

A room temperature tensile test using thin films taken from the outside and inside surface of polymer pipes has been developed to study the slow crack growth resistance of ageing PE pipelines via analysis of their strain hardening behaviour. A range of PE materials in service since the early 1970s and 80s are studied,...
