Natural gas pipes are joined only with electrofusion fittings. Since the welding area is very wide, this method was chosen for safety reasons.
It is possible to get direct output from the main pipe by using this technique. Repairing the pipes is easy. It is easily applied even in very narrow areas. It does not require much excavation and filling.
Are PE100 pipes also used in natural gas lines?
PE100 pipes, which are produced from high-density Polyethylene, which is one of the indispensables of pressure pipe applications, is a pipe type used for underground natural gas lines used today.
PE100, which has been carrying natural gas to homes and workplaces since 1960, is resistant to high pressure and impacts and can be used safely because it is resistant to chemical substances.
What are the general features of Pe100 pipes?
PE100 pipes, which require advanced technology and very fine work, are of vital importance and should not be mistaken in order not to risk human life. For this reason, polyethylene shows high resistance to impact even at very low temperatures, and therefore ensures widespread use in distribution lines of a very important resource such as natural gas.
What are the standards and production range of PE100 natural gas pipes?
Polyethylene natural gas pipes are produced in accordance with TS 10827, ISO 4437 and EN 1555 standards and the pipe production range is Ø25-500 mm.
What are the advantages of using PE100 pipe?
It shows high strength. It has a high level of impact resistance. It is not affected by earthquakes due to its elastic structure. It maintains its elastic properties even when temperatures drop to -40 °C in PE100 natural gas pipes. There is no corrosion in PE100 natural gas pipes due to the fluid inside and the soil structure outside.
It is resistant to abrasion. Gas flow can be prevented and the pipe can be repaired. Thanks to the coil windings in PE100 natural gas pipes, there are not many welding points in the pipes. For this reason, the connection area risk is minimized.
Since the PE100 natural gas pipes are joined with the EF welding method, it does not leak gas in any way.
Installation is easy. PE100 natural gas pipes have a long-lasting usage guarantee due to the fact that they are produced from high-density polyethylene.
What are the PE100 pipe joining methods?
PE100 Natural Gas pipes are only combined with electrofusion fittings. Since the welding area is very wide, this method was chosen for safety reasons.
