Some Case Histories on the Use of Plastics Pipes


Pipe Laying

Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1970 Southampton


in opening the paper I think I should first explain that I propose :ca deviate a little from the precise subject described in the title. When the !itle wzs agreea with the Organising Secretary, ! was under the impression that my company organisation was a good deal better than it now appears to be and, to my cost, ! have found that to write case histories would, in general terms, be extremely difficult, iC'not impossib!e, due to the deficiencies in our system o+ Keeping records.

A model is presented for the prediction of cooling rates and temperature profiles during the cooling and solidification of M.D.P.E. pipes. Experimental measurements from an industrial production line are reported and these confirm the predictions of the model. Finally, the model is used to determine the most important...
