Welding of Large Diameter Heavy Wall Polyolefine Pipes and Long Term Performance [PE]
Hessel, Lueghamer, Tsunaga
# 2004 Milan
Case histories of large diameter heavy wall polyolefine pipe installations for water supply in
Japan are presented.
The different methods for heated butt welding procedures for polyethylene are compared. The
test methods to assess the performance of the welds are described and the failure mechanisms
Basing on experimental results the long term performance of a butt welded polyethylene pipe
is predicted for a service life of more than 100 years.

Demand for polyethylene (PE) pipe continues to grow on a global basis. The performance properties of this tough, durable piping material are widely recognized by the engineering and design community on a worldwide scale and the range of applications expands. The evolutionary trend in PE piping systems has been very...

Ultra pure water (UPW) is an important resource in several industry sectors. A project in The Netherlands is presented where a pipeline for the transportation of UPW was recently built using PP pipes with a diameter of 280 mm (SDR 17.6). The project was unique in several ways. While typically UPW piping systems are...
As part of the Polytec Systems European-funded project, electrofusion (EF) joints in
polyethylene (PE) pipe, containing different flaws, have been subjected to various standard
and non-standard, long-term and short-term, coupon and whole pipe tests. The results were
compared to determine which tests could discriminate...
By applying the cross-linked EF to the cross-linked PE(PEX) pipe \vhicli has a composite
structure, the reliability of hot water piping system under severe environment lias significantly
increased. A continuous use for approsimately 30 years under severe conditions such as 80 "C.
and I MPa becomes possible. In this...
