High reliability and proven Service Performance
PE is the preferred choice, particularly in buried low pressure pipe systems like distribution systems.
Resistance to low Temperatures
Due to its high ductility, toughness and elasticity, Interplast PE gives no problems during installation at a wide variety of ambient temperatures.
High Impact Resistance
The enormous resistance against surge and fatigue eliminates the necessity of a higher pressure rating and investments in anti-surge devices. Additional safety for gas distribution systems.
Comparisons have shown that PE pipes have a higher abrasion resistance than other materials; therefore PE pipes are the most preferred for slurry transporting pipe systems.
Excellent Chemical Resistance
PE is resistant to a great number of chemical agents. In case of doubt, please ask our staff.
Because of the good welding ability and elasticity of PE, long lengths can be assembled outside the (narrow) trench. The welded joints are strong and highly reliable and completely tight so no gas can escape.
Wide variety of Installation Methods
PE pipes offer the installer all possible solutions for installation, which can provide considerable time and cost savings. PE pipes are for example preferred in trenchless and “narrow trenching” installation.
The low weight of the Interplast PE system makes it easy to transport and handle.
Meeting all Requirements
Interplast PE gas pipes comply with EN 1555 – 2 standards.
The jointing possibilities of Interplast PE pressure pipes are:
- Butt fusion
- Electro fusion
As the transportation of natural gas is dangerous, Interplast gas pipeline installers will have to be certified by Interplast for the installation and welding of PE gas pipes.
