Geberit HDPE jointing methods Overview

The many Geberit jointing methods offer solutions for all situations.

Butt weld

Electroweld sleeve coupling

Ring-seal socket

Screw-threaded joint

Linear expansion socket

Flange joint

These connections have different properties, and are therefore classified according to the way in which they are assembled as follows: a) Non-rigid, removable Connections which can be disconnected after assembly. b) Rigid, non removable Connections which cannot be disconnected after assembly. c) Tension-resistant Connections which cannot be disconnected by tensional forces. (Butt weld, electroweld sleeve, flange, screwed connection with locking ring) d) Non-tension-resistant Connections which can be disconnected by tensional forces. (Ring-seal socket, expansion socket, screw-threaded joint)

Butt welding

All diameters from 32 to 315 mm can be welded. Connection properties b) rigid, non removable c) tension-resistant Use Welding is the easiest jointing method, providing the many advantageous benefits of prefabrication; HDPE needs no other component in order to be welded. It can be used in all circumstances where prefabrication is used on site or in the workshop. The essential conditions for a perfect weld are: Cleanliness of the welding plate and the parts which are to be welded. A correct welding plate temperature. A simple and reliable connection The correct pressure for jointing the parts. The parts to be welded must be cut square < 90. ) Butt welding takes up little space. The edge of the weld does not obstruct the pipe, leaving its internal cross-section virtually unchanged. Even quite complicated distribution parts can be assembled in a small space, without wastage of material, because lengths of pipe or elbow sections can be easily reused through butt welding. Allowance for butt welds The allowance for butt welds is approx. as big as the wall thickness of the pipe pipe diameter (mm) butt weld s (mm) Indicative values of operating pressure

Electroweld sleeve coupling

Available from 40 to 315 mm. Connection properties b) rigid, non removable c) tension-resistant Use On-site welding, conversion, additional installations, repairs. The small outside diameter provides a great advantage. Conventional assembly, on the nesting principle, made for easy use. The joint obtained is simple, quick and reliable. A short, simple and reliable connection The heating and melting zone is divided into two fields, as there are no electrical resistances in the centre of the sleeve. This provides a very satisfactory safety factor. Also the ends of the pipes are not heated, the zones remain effectively cold, and provide further reinforcement, thus cancelling out shrinkage of the pipe. The pressure required for welding is obtained from the shrinking effect of the sleeve when it is heated, and is evenly distributed over the entire weld. This shrinkage has a compensating effect on pipe diameter measurement tolerances. The electrical resistance wires will not corrode. Once the weld has been made they are entirely covered by PE. The use of original Geberit equipement, especially tempered Geberit HDPE pipes, are recommended for correct welding. Electrical sleeves can be made to slide by removing the central stop ring, thus making system conversion and repair work easier. 150

Ring-seal socket joint

Available from 32 to 160 mm. Connection properties a) non-rigid, removable d) non-tension-resistant Use Ring-seal socket joints can be used to provide a connection between various prefabricated parts for simpler assembly. Assembly May be used either vertically or horizontally. The small overall dimensions provide an advantage where space is limited. Can easily be assembled or released even where access is difficult. Ring-seal sockets are provided with a yellow protection cap to prevent the ingress of debris during installation.

Protection cap

Assembly instructions are the same for both ring-seal sockets and screw-threaded joints, the sleeve lengths are the same for corresponding diameters. The effective sleeve length, i. e. the measurement X from the O-ring to the base of the socket governs the maximum length of pipe which can be connected by individual joints. For HDPE approximately 15 mm of spigot should be allowed for every 1 m of pipe. The pipe must be fully inserted into the socket, because the socket does not act as an expander. Owing to the pipe thickness and the low thermal conductivity of HDPE, the socket seal has very satisfactory resistance to heat and no shrinkage of the O-ring occurs. The O-ring has a round seat regardless of pipe movements. The O-ring remains fixed in the seat and is always in contact with the pipe.

x
Length X varies with the diameter

Ideal fitting is obtained by chamfering the pipe end to approximately 15, lubricating it with soft soap, Silicone or Vaseline. Do not use mineral oil or grease which can damage the rubber seal.

Connection properties a) non-rigid, removable c) tension-resistant Use Wherever there is the possibility that a pipe can be pulled out of a screw-threaded joint by axial tensile forces a flange bushing must be used to ensure that the connection will resist these forces. It is also recommended that a screw-threaded joint with flange bushing should be used when installing in floors or slabs, where the length of pipe between two connections (elbows, branches or sleeves) is longer than 2 metres. 1 The seal is pressed against the flange bushing and the thread. 1 2 4 3

Expansion socket

Available from 32 to 315 mm. Connection properties a) non-rigid, removable d) non-tension-resistant Use An expansion socket is recommended between anchor brackets, particularly on installations assembled with rigid joints and where excessive thermal movement is anticipated. At least one expansion joint must be provided on vertical stacks running from floor to floor, long collector pipelines and before connecting to the buried drain pipework. Different conditions apply for underground installations. For this application field see page 48. Installation Can be used either vertically or horizontally. One advantage is the depth of the sleeve which makes the assembly of downpipes and mains easier, allowing both vertical and horizontal corrections (e.g. in level, and in the precise positioning of the direction of branches and elbows). A firm anchor bracket must always be located behind the expansion socket to avoid any movement of the socket in the event of expansion or contraction. The special shape of the seal allows the pipe to slide within the socket during expansion and contraction, ensuring that the connection remains perfectly watertight even under heavy hydraulic load.
Horizontal assembly (e.g. at 20C)

Example: Insertion depth in an ambient temperature of 20C (Vertical assembly).

The following conditions are important to ensure perfect and easy assembly of the sleeve: 1. Chamfering the inserted pipe end to approximate <15. ) 2. Check the scale on the outer surface of the expansion socket for insertion depth. 3. Mark the correct insertion depth on the pipe. 4. Lubricate the pipe end well with soft soap, Silicone or Vaseline. N.B. Do not use oil or grease which can damage the rubber seal. For more information see pages 22, 28, 43. A special expansion socket with stainless steel protection for the rubber seal can be used for heavy duty industrial and laboratory applications.

Flanged joint

Available from 50 to 315 mm. Connection properties a) rigid, removable c) tension-resistant Use Flanges are normally used as disconnectable joints for low pressure installations (industrial plant, pump connection, tanks and swimming pools). The flange connection system offers easy connection to existing iron and steel installations. As inspection access opening made by using a blind flange. Flanges are sintered, i.e. they are coated with polyethylene, and have standard dimensions (PN 10 and 16).

Geberit HDPE contraction sleeve

Available from 50 to 315 mm Connection properties b) rigid, non-removable d) non-tension-resistant Use The Geberit HDPE contraction sleeve is a convenient connection possibility for most uneven, irregular or special materials. A common additional application method is also the connection from HDPE to different clay ware apparatus, e. g. for Laboratory sinks. Installation The enclosed rubber ring will be placed over the pipe end. Make sure that the rubber ring will be placed in the middle of the sleeve length (h2). Then push the contraction sleeve over the pipe end. Apply low heat (approx. 125C) evenly around the socket, moving the blow lamp constantly. The sleeve will now shrink and give an absolute watertight and strong connection. Afterwards fix the contraction sleeve pipe with an anchor bracket.

Anchor bracket for expansion socket

The main purpose of the anchor bracket is to prevent any movement of the expansion socket.

The distance L and the thrust forces P have to be taken in account, when selecting the diameter of the pipe nipple between mounting plate and bracket.

Rigid installation to control thermal expansion and contraction

Principal: Any variation in length must be prevented by embedded fixed points in concrete (e. g. electroweld sleeve couplings, branches, bends or collar bushes) or by the provision of corresponding fixed point structures.

Embedding in concrete Basically Geberit HDPE material absorbs within itself thermal movement due to its high elasticity. However, in the case of large diameters (e.g. 315 mm) the forces P (resulting from expansion and contraction) are considerable. They must be absorbed by the embedded fixpoints alone, since cement/concrete will not adhere to HDPE pipework.

Since the fitting has to act as a fixpoint, do not insulate it.

Branch equal

Branch equal with reducer

Reduced small branches of large pipe diameters must be secured by an additional anchor point (electroweld sleeve couplings or collar bushes) to prevent shearing off of the branch.

Under no circumstances should a ring seal or expansion socket be embedded in concrete.

Underground drainage pipes of Geberit HDPE Not only has Geberit HDPE proven itself excellently for many years for drainage systems inside of buildings such as: soil and waste stacks vent pipes connection and branch pipes collector pipes but it is also suitable for underground applications as: ground pipes domestic drainage pipes Criteria for underground drainage pipes 1. Tightness Environmental protection regulations do not permit leaking drainage pipes. Geberit HDPE is a reliable water drai-nage system which assures maximum dependability with regard to tightness.

2. Resistance to chemicals Geberit HDPE provides the assurance of universal resistance to the greatly diversified types of chemical attack by the disposal water, as well as by external factors (acidic soils). 3. Flexibility Geberit HDPE is a flexible, operationally reliable drainage system, even in soils in which a certain degree of settling of ground must be anticipated. 4. Resistance to frost Geberit HDPE has proven itself excellently for many years in frost endangered soils such as in Scandinavia. It can be used in temperatures ranging from 40 to 100C. 5. Material As in domestic drainage systems, the quality of the material is the main criterion for underground applications.

In addition to the attack from the inside, the pipes are also subjected to attacks from outside. Geberit HDPE excellently stands up to all these

Trench The trench is to be dug as narrow as possible but not narrower than the pipe diameter + 40 cm. The floor of the trench must be level and free from rocks and loose clumps. Correct elevation and slope are also important.

B = Bedding Under normal soil conditions the trench is provided with a bedding layer of round gravel (grading up to 30 mm) or of broken material (grading up to 10 mm) of a thickness of approx. 100 mm. The bedding layer must be compacted and tamped. In certain cases it will be neccessary to reinforce the ground.

U = Underpinning After the pipe has been laid, recesses are to be provided for sockets and flanges so that the pipe is supported along its entire length. The underpinning is to be done with a tamping post or the like. It must be done very carefully. If several pipes are laid, make sure that the lowest one is fully covered before the one above is placed. The pipe must lay flat, and it must be installed with

C = Consolidation layer The material is to be filled in layers of approx. 100 mm thickness. Tamping can be done by stamping with the feet, or with a special tool. The purpose of this material is to help prevent the pipe from deforming, so that it must be compacted well on both sides at the same time .

P = Protective layer Now fill in a layer of the same material (must not contain rocks which could cause point loading of the pipe) of at least 300 cm. Attention: To prevent the pipe from rising the trench is to be finish-filled on the same day up to and including the protection layer.

HS = Safety margin height For the further filling the available material is to be used. The trench must not contain rocks which cannot be lifted by hand. As soon as permitted by the safety margin height, this compacting can be done by machine. The regulations and byelaws on the refilling of trenches are to be observed.

Distribution of ground pressure The ground pressure and ground load distribution are governed essentially by the compaction. For calculation the appropriate standards and the local building and safety regulations are to be observed.

In addition to the butt-welded and electrically welded connection, the expansion socket is an ideal connection in underground drainage systems. Since in such systems lower temperature differences are usually encountered than in stacks and connector pipes, smaller length variations can be accounted for. d For this reason in underground installations the distance between expansion sockets can be longer.

Pipes penetrating through building walls

With regard to the ground line between the building wall and the street sewer, where extreme settling can occur, an installation mat must be wrapped around the ground line to act as a deflection leg. In such cases Geberit HDPE is an ideal material, since it assures tightness and at the same time provides maximum flexibility. Deflection leg The length of the deflection leg is dependent upon the expected settling and on the pipe diameter.

Traffic safety/Maintenance Geberit HDPE also meets the special requirements for all types of bridges. The pipes and the wide range of fittings provide an easy design and execution at the construction site. The smooth walled pipes make a troublefree maintenance and service possible, whereby all modern cleaning equipment can be used. Frost protection Geberit HDPE can be installed in temperatures down to 40C. However, to ensure water flow in the pipe an automatic-controlled heat trace can be fitted.

Low pressure application

Generally the Geberit HDPE product range is designed for water drainage systems. For the low pressure range, e. g. swimming pool, pipework through circulation pumps, Geberit has established maximum admissible stressing values for an endurance life of 10 years. All connections must be butt weld joints, electroweld sleeve couplings or flange joints. Suitable fitting range for low pressure application see page 4.

Discharge pipeline of a pump set

The Geberit HDPE range of products can also be used for the discharge pipeline of a pump set, provided that the mechanical stress is low, only of short time and no thermal loaded medium (e.g. warm water) is pumped. When designing discharge pipelines for drainage pumps the following important points should be observed:

Polyethylene (PE) is a simple compound of carbon and hydrogen atoms, harmless to man, animals and plants.

1 7 8

PE environmental loads relate to the fields of manufacture and disposal. In addition to the raw material crude oil, energy is used for the preparation of the plastic granulate and in the manufacture of the products.

PE is the perfect material for drainage systems from an ecological point of view. It has a long life span, no toxic gases rises from incineration (e. g. hydrochloric acid HCL from PVC) during disposal. It consumes much smaller quantities of energy during fabrication process and transport than steel, cast iron or copper pipes.

Geberit High Density Polyethylene HDPE: Density 951 955 kg/m3 The density of various polyethylene types can be 910 960 kg/m3. The Geberit type at up to 955 kg/m3, is of the hard quality and has increased durability properties. HDPE is lighter than water, which is beneficial particularly with regard to transportation and installation.

1 8

Tempered 10 mm per meter (licence Geberit International AG) The safest way of avoiding the inevitable heat reserves (shortening of dimensions) after heat load in the plastic pipe, is to take preventative measures during manufacture. Geberit HDPE pipes are therefore stored in hot water baths after manufacture. This process increases the safety of the joints, as there is no chance of joints pulling apart later due to shortening of length.
7

Resistance to cold When Geberit HDPE parts are filled with water and then freeze, they stretch elastically as the ice expands. Once the ice melts, they resume their original shape, remaining completely intact and undamaged.

Flexibility The flexibility of the piping material can be the main criterion in certain buildings or on bridges, especially when pipes have to pass through expansion joints or are in buildings, which are subject to traffic vibration.

Melt-flow index 0,4 0,5 g/10 min. This describes the working properties of the pipe and at the same time gives information on the molecular weight, which is crucial for a number of raw material properties. The smaller the melt-flow index, the higher the molecular weight and thus the pipes resistance to stress corrosion.

Heat conductivity 0,43 W/m K HDPE is a bad heat conductor; for this reason the pipe does not become completely warmed through when heat loaded for a short period. Heat loss is about 90% less, for instance, than a similar copper pipe.

Resistance to radioactive effluents There is no risk of damage as a result of slightly radioactive water. However, please ask the manufacturer for more information relevant to the particular application.

Resistance to abrasion Drainage systems are increasingly becoming hidden refuse chutes. A pipes resistance to abrasion is a particularly important factor in branch pipes, soil stacks and ground pipes. HDPE is highly resistant to abrasion; its extra thick walls offer additional protection.

Comments on the individual properties


8

Heat expansion 0,17 mm/m K Heat expansion of HDPE is relatively high. As a rule of thumb, for every 50C increase in temperature, an expansion of 10 mm of linear meter of pipe can be anticipated.
9

Resistance to hot water Geberit HDPE can be safely used as waste pipe with no mechanical load, up to 80C. Temperatures of up to 100C for short periods (e.g. surges of steam) are permissible.
10

Resistance to impact Geberit HDPE is unbreakable at room temperature. Its resistance to impact is very high even at extremely low temperatures (down to approx. 40C) and thus meets the requirements for outlet pipes.
11

Condensate Geberit HDPE is a poor conductor of heat. No condensate should form during short periods of undercooling.

12

Behaviour in fire Plastics are inflammable. However, the classification of plastics according to the usual fire test for construction materials does not permit a valid statement on the behaviour of plastic construction parts in the event of a fire.

13

Tightness Many years of experience with welding HDPE-Pipes, have shown that the butt welds do not give any problems as the welding parts are circular on the inside and do not add to the normal risk of blocking.

Noise HDPE is a soft material with a low E-modulus. HDPE limits solid-borne conduction, but airborne noise should be insulated. This can be done by means of the duct wall, HDPE Silent or Geberit Isol.

14

Chemical resistance Because of its paraffinic structure, Geberit HDPE is highly resistant to chemicals. Its resistance can be summarized briefly as follows: Geberit HDPE is insoluble in all inorganic and organic solutions at 20C. Geberit HDPE is only soluble in aliphatic and aromatic carbons and their chlorinating products at over 90C. The material will be attacked by heavily oxidized media (conc. HN03, conc. H2 S04) when exposed over long periods at room temperature.

Non-conductive Plastics have an excellent reputation as insulators in the electronics industry. HDPE cable protection ducts, cast resins, insulating paint etc.

1 8

Sealing material Although the chemical resistance of the seal does not equal that of HDPE, there is no risk of the seal being destroyed, because the rubber ring is installed under compression on all sides and therefore cannot swell. In addition, the wetting factor of the rubber ring in the joint is very low. Many years of experience have shown that the sealing material can endure even the harshest conditions. NB: Such conditions do not occur in drainage pipes. Free halogens (chlorine, bromine etc.) cause halogenised polyethylene and hydrogen halide to form at room temperature. The halogenised polyethylene has different physical and chemical properties from the original hydrocarbon, but the polymer is not destroyed. Geberit HDPE should therefore not be used at all in areas where free halogens are produced or used. The only criteria to be observed here are the purpose for which the pipe is intended and the concentration of halogens. Solar radiation Geberit HDPE pipes are protected against ageing and embrittlement caused by UV rays by the addition of approximately 2% soot.

Protection against blockages HDPEs water-repelling properties are highly beneficial in this regard. Rapid outflow of water Prevention of deposits

Welding temperature Thermoplasts are processed with a high level of energy efficiency. The temperatures required are relatively low in comparison with metals. The welding temperature for HDPE is approximately 230C. Simple tools allow for easy processing.
4

Non-toxic Plastics are well suited for use in the food industry as packaging material, containers, bottles etc. Geberit HDPE pipes are used for milk transportation lines in mountain areas and in the food canning and packing industry.

Scope of use Geberit HDPE pipes are designed for drainage systems. Their use in low-pressure areas (swimming pools, transportation lines etc.) is subject to a maximum pressure load of 15 m Water Column (1,5 bar) and a temperature of 30C (10 years). There is also a certain range of moulded fittings.

Painting Geberit HDPE is not suitable for painting. Its water repellent properties and the flexibility of the material both have a negative impact on paint. If painting is unavoidable, the paint product to be used should be tested for compatibility with the HDPE.

As a result of manufacturing, the molecule chains are stretched and than cooled sown from about 230C to 40C. This enormous drop in temperature results in tensile stresses which are frozen in by the cooling down process.

10

Stretched molecules after manufacturing When hot water flows through a streched pipe or the pipe is heated up by doing a welding joint, e.g. with an electroweld sleeve coupling, the expanded molecules relax and return to their normal state. The pipe becomes shorter. Molecules after Geberit annealing process

11

Effects of annealing of Geberit HDPE pipes

The safest way of avoiding the inevitable heat shortening of dimensions after heat load in the plastic pipe is to take preventative measures (Tempering) during manufacture. Geberit pipes are therefore stored in a hot water bath after manufacture, this allows the expanded molecules to relax and return to their normal state = No stresses on Geberit pipes.

Admitted shortening according to standards 150 mm

15

Without tempering, shortening of dimensions can create gaps between pipe and fitting, pipes can be pulled apart high risk of leakage!

Tempering of Geberit pipes reduces mechanical stress and joints and fixations. Through this process even the high precision requirements for electroweld sleeve couplings can be met.

The significance of the pH value


9 2

One of the most crucial factors in selecting a material for a drainage installation is the chemical loading of the effluent being discharged. Effluent with a low or a high pH is harmful because of its corrosive effects. E. g. some drain cleaning fluids have a pH value of up to 12.
8

Therefore in order to select the most suitable material to handle a specific discharge it is important not only to know the pH value of the effluent but the chemical resistance of the pipe materials. (see Chemical Resistance tables on pages 65 to asses the performance of Geberit HDPE at various temperatures) The pH value is therefore important in assessing the chemical level as it will indicate whether the effluent is acid, neutral or alkaline. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 (see table below).

Explanation
When the pipe wall material comes into contact with substances flowing through the pipe, different processes can take place, such as the absorption of liquid (swelling), the extraction of soluble elements in the material (shrinkage) or chemical reactions (hydrolysis, oxidation etc.), which can sometimes cause the properties of the pipes or pipeline parts to change. The performance of pipes and pipeline parts when in contact with effluent substances can be classed as follows: q Resistant The pipe wall material is generally regarded as being suitable
Limited resistance
Flow through substance

Geberit HDPE
Proport. Performance at % 20 40 60C

The suitability of the pipe wall material must be checked in each individual case; if necessary, further tests should be carried out. Not resistant The pipe wall material is generally regarded as being unsuitable. The following symbols and abbreviations are used to indicate the composition of the flow substances: % L Percentages refer to mass proportions in %. Aqueous solution, mass proportion > 10%.

VL Aqueous solution, mass proportion <= 10%. GL Aqueous solution saturated at 20C. TR Chemical is at least technically pure. H S G Normal commercial composition. Traces < 0,1% Usual mass proportion of any saturated solution or dilution.
