This asserts that the long-term properties of PE are not adequately predicted by the results of short-term testing, such as tensile strength.
– ATV A Standard vs. AWWA M55 manual
Occasional surge pressures are often the result of a malfunction, such as a power failure or system com- ponent failure, including pump seize-up, valve-stem failure, and pressure-relief valve- failure.
All pipe, tubing, and fittings are routinely inspected to ensure that they are homogenous throughout-free of visible cracks, holes, foreign inclusions, blisters, dents, or other injurious defects.
The temperature settings depend a great deal on throughput rates, screw and die geometry, and the limits of the material being extruded. The ring tensile test is conducted on a ring cut from the extruded pipe. Greater stiffness yields greater wave velocity and higher surge pressure. Nguyen Nguyen marked it as to-read Oct 26, Further, coiled pipe larger than 2 in. The common commercial practice is to 25 increase wall thickness in high-stress areas by using heavier wall pipe sections.
This technique, which precludes zy the m555 for specially modified pipe ends or j55, produces a permanent, econom- ical, and flow-efficient joint. A PE piping system that is subjected to recurring surges over its service life will experience a greater number of surge events compared to a system that is subjected to occasional surges.
Base resin density is one of the key awaw parameters for PE in piping applications. Although special clamp adapters for making m5 mitered fusion joints are available from some equipment suppliers, field miter butt fusion joining is never used in PE pressure piping systems because m5 pressure capacity of a miter aqwa fusion joint made using pipe having the same DR as the main pipe is lower than the pressure capacity awwx the main pipe.
However, recent advances in polymer technology provide for modern PE pipe resins that main- tain cell classes of 5 and 6, which require testing in accordance with ASTM F, thus assuring the end user of even higher levels of technical performance as it relates to the slow crack growth resistance of modern PE pipe. As a result, the hydrostatic strength of the material decreases, which yields a lower pressure rating for a specific pipe DR.

5m5 Once a product has been reduced to particles of an appropriate size, the material is called rework or regrind. As a result, the molecular weight of the resin is the average of the weight of each of these chains. Socket Fusion Conventional socket fusion. This does not happen in AWWA, where, despite the fact that the bedding angle is actually considered, its real influence on the final results is very low. Excluding third party damage phenomena, such as dig-ins, etc.
Mechanical Compression Fittings Mechanical compression fittings typically have a body that is a pressure-containing component that fits over the outside diameter of the pipe, a threaded compression nut or follower gland with bolting arrangement, wawa elastomeric seal rings or gaskets. It is removed from the heating bath and reshaped in the forming tool. Do – t Do average outside diameter of the pipe, in.
Generally, the design procedure is t o select awwwa pipe that satisfies the internal aewa pressure, maximum anticipated surge, and flow capacity require- zyxwvu ments and then to analyze the subsurface installation to ensure that the pipe, as installed, will withstand the external loads.

A bol- ster plate may still be necessary for saddle fusion even where rerounding and straightening equipment that corrects the ovality awwa curvature of 2-in. The site and its layout should provide protection against physical damage to compo- nents. Recurring surge pressure PRS. At small strains up to 3 percent for most PE pipe resinsthe compressive modulus is about equal to the elastic modulus.
This internationally recognized standard on quality poli- cies and procedures details specific criteria which the manufacturer must verify com- pliance with customer and industry specifications. Lists with This Book. Rodrigo Moroni marked it as to-read May 03, Figures through are general illustrations of truckload and packaging config- urations. If a water pipe must pass through a contaminated area or an area subject to contamination, consult with pipe manufacturers regarding per- zyxwv meation of pipe walls, jointing materials, etc.
The pressure of the molten PE at the end of the extruder barrel before it enters the die can range from 1, to 5, psi. In each case the most appropriate Krah pipe the one that verified all conditions was selected and its ring stiffness was registered, observing the following: Thrust blocks do not provide restraint against pullout and are not a substitute for external mechanical restraint.
PE piping materials are highly fatigue resistant. Conventional socket fusion may be used with 4-in. The internal pressure capability or Awaw of a PE pipe can be calculated from the HDB as a function of wall thickness and pipe diameter using the IS0 equation and the appropriate design factor.
For pipes installed in trenches, the support stiffness developed depends on the com- bined stiffness of the embedment material, immediately adjacent to the pipe, plus the native soil in the trench awqa.
To protect PE against thermal and oxidative degradation during fabrication and ensure a long shelf and service life, PE is always compounded with a small amount of additives. External load capacity m555 normally zyx checked by the following steps: Fatigue Each time a PE pipe is pressurized or subjected to hydraulic transients, its circumfer- ence expands and unrestrained length decreases in an elastic manner.

A printer for marking the pipe is usually located either immediately before or after the puller. Determine the external loads applied to pipe.
The load and pipe reaction calculations may not apply to pipes installed by trenchless technologies, such as pipe bursting and directional drilling.
To obtain a listing in this document, resin manufacturers m55 required to submit stress-rupture data developed in accor- dance with PPI TR Throughout the length of the screw, the temperature of the plastic is closely moni- tored and controlled.
The average weight may be determined using sophisticated scientific tech- niques, such as gel permeation chromatography or size-exclusion chromatography. In those few cases where the PSs may be excessive, the WPR may be reduced to accommodate the additional surge. Quality Assurance Testing Quality assurance QA testing is performed on a statistical basis at the completion of the manufacturing process for further assurance that the product satisfies all applica- ble standards.
