PE Water RC - Peštan

PE Water RC

Peštan RC HDPE pipes for water transportation under pressure are high-quality pipes made from high quality polyethylene PE-100 RC (resistant to crack). HDPE PE-100 RC is improved HDPE PE-100, which has improved mechanical properties. Improved mechanical properties are the result of a shift catalyst in the production process of the material.

There are several tests that indicate the extraordinary properties of PE 100 RC pipes. NPT – notch pipe test, indicating the resistance tube to the recesses that may arise in the pipe trench due to exposure to the stone or the rest of the old pipeline. PLT – point load test demonstrates the resistance to point loading tube, simulating the load that occurs when the tube is exposed to the stone or wall for a longer period. FNCT – full notch creep test is a test from raw material from which is produced PE 100 RC pipe.

  • Production program Peštan HDPE pipes for water transportation under pressure includes a pipe manufactured from the highest quality polyethylene PE-100 RC in diameters from Ø16 to Ø630.

    Also this pipes are available in four variants (depending on the pressure to which they are intended):

    SDR26 – PN6
    SDR17 – PN10
    SDR11 – PN16
    SDR9 – PN20

    (Upon request, it is possible to produce pipes with non-standard working pressures – PN4 and PN25)

    Peštan produces two types of pipes from PE 100 RC:

    PE Water RC

    TIP 1 – solid wall pipes made of PE 100-RC:

    Pipes solid wall of one wall made of PE 100-RC as defined by ISO 4065. The pipes can be made in blue or black water pipes with blue stripes, according to the applications which are also made of PE 100 RC materials.

    TIP 2 – Pipe with dimensional integrated protective layer made of PE 100-RC:

    1. Double-layer pipes dimensional integrated protective layer which are made of PE 100 and PE 100 RC and have a co-extruded outer protective layer made of PE 100-RC.

    2. Three-layer pipes with dimensional integrated protective layers of PE 100-RC. The pipes are made of PE 100 or PE 100-RC and have from the internal and external co-extruded protective layer made of PE 100-RC.

    The production of this type of pipes is based on the technology of parallel extrusion (double and triple tube) to the outer (and if necessary an inner) layer of paint with a different color – blue color of the water pipes.

    Peštan is able to offer a complete range of weld fittings manufactured in all diameters and all working pressures.

    Also, other operating pressures are available upon request.

  • Resistance to increased temperature:

    When temperatures increased exploitation (eg. Industrial use) it is necessary to correct the value using the PN -a reduction coefficient from the table:

    The advantage of PE 100 RC materials

    Advantages of this type of pipes (PE-100 RC) relative to the pipes produced from the previous generation material (PE-100) is reflected in the fact that the RC as materials are more resistant to point loads and rapid crack propagation, and pipe manufactured from this materials are more resistant.

    Connecting polyethylene water pipes made of PE100 RC is the same as connect pipes made of PE-100.

    There are several ways to connect polyethylene pipes vodu. These pipes can be connected in the following ways:

    1. Frontal welding
    2. Electrofusion welding
    3. With compression fitting (diameters up to Ø125)
    4. Connecting sleeves and flanges

    Electrofusion and The front welding are performed according to the guidelines of DVS 2207-1

    Installation, jointing and testing of polyethylene piping is done according to applicable European standards and guidelines:

    a. EN 805
    b. EN 1610
    c. DVS 2207-1
    d. DVGW W 400-2 (A)

    PAS 1075

    When it comes to the usual definition of PE 100 RC, PAS 1075 (Public Available Specification) titled “Pipes made of polyethylene for alternative installation methods” published by DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung). This publicly available specification is considered to be a complement to the existing standards and regulations.

    PAS 1075 relates to increased resistance to slow crack growth pipe made of PE 100 RC used for alternative installation methods such as directed drilling, drilling in, pipe bursting, laying the pipeline without sand cribs, etc … requirements, characteristics and test procedures as well as adequate procedures for ensuring quality, regulated and secured permanent control by the authorized institutions. Polyethylene pipes, which are described in this regulation, have a significantly higher resistance to slow crack growth, as compared with conventional pipes made of PE 80 and PE 100th

    Alternative ways of installation

    1. Laying in narrow trenches

    This is a modification of the classic pipe laying in the trench. By using short or long ditches, dig the trenches that are 100 mm wider than the pipe which is to be taken. Coiled or pre-welded pipes are laid in this passage. Significant savings can be achieved with much less the excavation volume, the less broth material (sand for substructure), and reduced operating.

    2. Pipe bursting

    This is an increasingly popular method for rehabilitation of existing pipelines, in places where excavation method unacceptable. With pipe bursting the existing pipe is destroyed and a new PE 100 RC pipe is pulled into the resulting hole, and provide a replacement with the same diameter pipe or with the help of destroyers, pipe diameter can increase in relation to the replacement pipe.

    3. Laying plowing (plowing)

    The technique was developed on the basis of the Agricultural techniques for laying and drainage. This method is used for laying pipes for water and gas routes between settlements.

    4. Slip lining

    Insert a small diameter PE pipes, slip-lining, the existing pipeline is one of many techniques for trenchless rehabilitation Rehabilitation-old pipeline.

    With a slip lining inevitably reduce the pipe diameter, although this can be minimized by thorough cleaning of the old pipeline and selecting the largest possible diameter pipe for insertion. The smaller diameter is compensated by an improved hydraulic characteristics of polyethylene, and in some cases we have even greater throughput of the new pipeline.

    5. Mole method

    Mole method has become a frequently used method for trench-less setting small diameters, and can deliver significant savings in relation to the installation of pipes from the excavation. Excavation is carried out for inbound and outbound caves, and is ideal for passages mole method pipeline under the road and out of  sidewalk construction, gardens and gardens, where they disrupted the excavation of soils and plants.

    6. Directional Drilling

    This technique has also become an established method of installation polyethylene pipes and is used for passages under the road, railway line and the river, in places where excavation difficult, expensive or impossible.
