Handbook of Polyethylene (PE) Pipe
Published by the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI), the Handbook describes how polyethylene piping systems continue to provide utilities with a cost effective solution to rehabilitate the underground infrastructure. The book will assist in designing and installing PE piping systems that can protect utilities and other end users from corrosion, earthquake damage and water loss due to leaky and corroded pipes and joints.
PE piping, has been successfully utilized for a variety of piping applications for over 50 years. Despite this relatively short history, the engineering community has embraced the overall toughness and durability of PE pipe and the latitude afforded by the variety of installation methods that can be employed using PE pipe to expand
its use at a quickening rate.
Today, we see PE piping systems operating in a broad array of installations; from pressure-rated potable water and natural gas lines to gravity sewers, from industrial and chemical handling to telecommunications and electrical ducting; from oil and gas production to marine installations and directional drilling. This text has been developed to assist designers, installers and owners in the design, rehabilitation and installation of solid wall PE pipe. Applications using profile wall PE pipe are addressed briefly; applications using PEX pipe (for plumbing, heating, …) and applications using corrugated PE pipe (for drainage, …) are covered in multiple and separate PPI publications.
This Handbook discusses material properties, design, installation and applications of solid wall PE pipe and to a lesser extent, profile wall PE pipe. Corrugated PE pipe for drainage applications is covered in a separate handbook. This Handbook discusses material properties, design, installation and applications of solid wall PE pipe and to a lesser extent, profile wall PE pipe. Corrugated PE pipe for drainage applications is covered in a separate handbook.
The material presented in this text has been written in a manner that is easily understood, with an emphasis on organization to provide the reader with ease of reference. It is only because of our efforts to be as comprehensive as possible with respect to the subject matter that have resulted in such an extensive publication.
