Properties of HDPE Valve Stop Valve
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) or polyethylene high-density (PEHD) is a polyethylene thermoplastic made from petroleum.
Referenced Standards: ISO 4427-2 / ISO 4427-3
Applications of HDPE Valve Stop Valve
An independent study reports that municipalities in 43 states average a water loss of 16% due to leaking joints. Some report water losses as high as 50%.
Traditional infrastructure piping is joined with bell and spigot or mechanical type joints and all acknowledge a specified leakage factor. Not only is our most precious resource being lost, but leaking pipes are costing our cities money. HDPE piping systems can be joined with heat fusion to produce permanent leak free joints.
HDPE piping systems can be joined with heat fusion welds. Heat fusion involves the heating of two HDPE surfaces then bringing them together to form a permanent, monolithic, leak-free system.
Unlike the fusion process developed for other plastics pipes, the fusion process for HDPE is proven and has been used by the natural gas industry for over 40 years. Approximately 95% of all gas distribution piping in the United States is polyethylene pipe joined by heat fusion.
Fusing HDPE pipe is not difficult and personnel can be trained in the process.
Traditional piping systems are installed by open cut (digging a ditch), resulting in traffic and environmental disruption. HDPE can be installed using this traditional open-cut method or by utilizing eco-friendly trenchless technology.
For trenchless installation, a horizontal directional machine bores a continuous hole beneath the ground. When the drilling head reaches the end of the bore, the pipe is attached and pulled back through the hole.
The flexibility of HDPE, combined with its outstanding tensile strength and abrasion resistance, make it the preferred and proven choice for trenchless installation technology.
HDPE pipe can be installed utilizing trenchless technology under creeks, rivers, lakes, roads, or right-of-ways with minimal environmental and public disruption.
When compared to a non-plastic pipe installed using the open-cut method, a leak-free HDPE system installed utilizing less invasive trenchless technology is more cost effective.
Advantage of HDPE Valve Stop Valve
1.The flexibility of HDPE, combined with the use of heat fusion to join the pipe, means fewer fittings are required.
2.HDPE pipe joined with heat fusion provides leak free connections.
