12 23 In PE100 HDPE, the PN 6.3 metric pipe is also known as SDR 26 and the maximum operating pressure of theat pipe with water at 20 degrees C is 630 kPa. Note that this is the maximum safe maximum working pressure and allowance must be made for pressure bounce that will occur when pumps start and stop and valves open and close.
The flexibility of PE pipe allows cost effective installation for a wide range of appliions including drinking water services, rural irrigation and stock watering, mining, slurry and gas lines, and sewerage and drainage systems.
PE pipe is used for a wide variety of appliions including drinking water service, rural irrigation and stock watering; mining, slurry and gas lines; and, sewerage and drainage systems. The unique properties of PE pipe make it ideal for use when trenchless technology is being used to install or rehabilitate pipe systems.
