Enclosed we are sending you two technical proposals for HDPE pipes for the Flexible
Fall Pipe Wessels application.
We furthermore invite you to personally visit our production unit in Italy where we have 9
lines daily manufacturing HDPE pipes.

Solution A : Offer of HDPE pipe with steel cone

The particular nature of the material that will be discharged inside the pipes ( rock
dumping, ex rock Eclogite ) forced us to be very uncompromising with the type of polymer
that we would have to use for the production of these pipes.
Our offer proposes pipe made of virgin HDPE PE 100, EN12201 ASTM4710 PLUS
Type BL, very resistant to crack test which also prevents the propagation of the fractures.

Solution B: Offer of HDPE pipe with GRP and steel cone


The pipeline in HDPE Type BL ( crack resistant ) is externally coated with a layer of
GPR ( Glass Reinforced Plastic ) processed by Filament winding.
- INNER LAYER IN HDPE PE100 Type BL = resistant to cracks propagation and
abrasion
- OUTER LAYER IN GRP = Filament winding
The fall pipe is constantly full of water. This fact help to counteract the negative
hydrostatic pressure acting externally on the circumference of the pipe.
Its therefore suggested to always execute the Buckling Test Verification and obtain a
safety coefficient > 1 ( see enclosed file ).
With the characteristic of the HDPE pipe you required we obtain a safety coefficient of 0,3.
To obtain a coefficient >1 we have to coat the HDPE pipes with an external layer of GRP
also obtaining a reduced bending of the pipe.

OUTER LAYER IN GRP= Resistant to high pressures , resistant to shocks and


compensate for the intrinsic flexibility of the polyethylene pipeline.

The GRP outer layer Filament Winding, not subject to the attack of salt water, provides
high pressures and shocks resistance to conduct.
GRP thickness which is wrapped the HDPE pipe is designed according to the needs of
the yard work and responding to regulations ISO,EN,ASTM,ANSI, AWWA.
The possibility to vary the angle of wrapping of the glass (main component that ensures
the mechanical resistance of the product) allows pipes which have a modulus of axial
elasticity or circumferential the most appropriate to the application request

JUNCTION SYSTEM
The junction is carried out by flanging.
The flat base of the stub flange is the location for the seal, o-ring
The joint between tube and tube, occurs between in polyethylene surfaces in order to
maintain the continuity of the line.
The layer of GRP cover the pipe and the welding between the pipe and stub end, and gets
to the flange.

JOINT SYSTEM BETWEEN THE PIPES


To help the joint of the pipes they have a cone on top of them
For the joint of the pipes in HDPE + GRP system the joint is the same.
A flanged cone from one side joins the flange of the pipe and the other side is conical with
an angle dimension able to fit the upper pipe and allow the inclination of it of 15 20
avoiding the upper pipe to get out of its position.
