PLASTIC PIPING HANDBOOK




File Size: 6.56 Mb

Description
The purpose of this handbook is to provide accurate and reliable information concerning the application, design, and installation of plastic pipe for water and gas systems.

Thermoplastic piping is the material that has the widest range of applications. Thermoplastic piping includes many materials that have significant differences in characteristics and uses. It is important that the correct thermoplastic material be specified for the various applications. Because of the frequent use of polyethylene (PE) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe material in the water and gas markets, this handbook will focus primarily on these types of plastic pipe. Other types of plastic
pipe and their applications will be introduced to provide the reader with a background in the various possible uses of the material. The design and installation information, however, will deal primarily with PE and PVC pipe. Each project is different and can have unique conditions. A design or installation necessity for one project might be excessive for another project. The ways the engineer and designer interpret and approach the various conditions are important to achieve an effective and efficient project. The proper design and installation of plastic piping systems require the use of sound engineering judgment and principles. It is the goal of this handbook to provide the information needed by designers, engineers, and installation personnel working in the water and gas fields.
