Improvements in long-term performance of polyethylene (PE) piping compounds have created interest in the use of higher operating pressures for gas distribution piping systems.
Polyethylene (PE) has been widely used in fuel gas distribution piping systems since the late 1950s.
The properties of bimodal MDPE and HDPE resins make them ideal for the manufacture of gas distribution piping. Its strength and durability, improved pipeline system integrity and resulting longer pipeline service/shelf life--translates into long-term economic benefits--and are advantages for gas utilities across the country to consider.
Recent statistics indicate that states are responsible for pipeline safety covering over 92 percent of 1.9 million miles of gas distribution piping in the nation, 29 percent of 300,000 miles of gas transmission and 32 percent of 166,000 miles of hazardous liquid pipelines.
Rilsan Polyamide 11 is the only plastic approved by the Department of Transportation for gas distribution piping for 200 psi pressure with 0.4 safety factor and no de-rating for contaminated soils.
Electrical resistance probes (ERP) are the only method, other than direct examination, of estimating the actual corrosion rate on gas distribution piping with direct connected galvanic anodes.
Today alone plastic reportedly accounts for more than 39 million services and 3 billion feet of the pipes in service and over 97 percent of all new gas distribution piping installed each year.
