PE100 jointing technology
PE pressure pipes can be jointed by different jointing techniques. The nature of the load, the type of installation, the economics and the local conditions have large influences on the choice of the appropriate jointing method. The nature of the pipe connection can have lasting positive and negative consequences for the manufacturing costs of a pipe system.
Criteria for selecting the most appropriate jointing technique are:
- operational reliability
- level of sealing
- effects of the medium to which it will be exposed
- cost outlay
- internal pressure load of the pipe system
Pipe connection options:
|Permanent (non-detachable) connections||Detachable connections|
Permanent jointing techniques are the most commonly used connection techniques for PE pipe construction. Welding is an extremely important form of connection for PE pressure systems. The welding practices most frequently used are:
The detachable connections contain elements that generally enable non-destructive disassembly and re-assembly without large additional expense. The group of detachable connections consists amongst others of:
- Flange joints
