Egeplast System Is TÜV-Certified for High-Pressure Applications
The egeplast HexelOne Raised Pressure system has now been certified as a complete system by the TÜV SÜD for use where there are increased operating pressures.
The new egeplast HexelOne pipe is a self-reinforced, high-pressure pipe, a mono composite made solely from polyethylene. This reinforcement makes new areas of application possible in the high pressure area — in other words, operating pressures above applications previously covered using PE pipes. The reason is that the pressure resistance it exhibits is double that compared to earlier polyethylene pipes. The homogeneous material in the PE high-pressure pipe has three functional layers. These facilitate excellent medium durability due to PE 100-RC in the inner layer, enhanced pressure resistance due to a medium layer made of stretched PE 100 and a tried and tested weld property in compliance with DVS due to the outer layer made of PE 100. The dimensions of the pipe correspond to valid European standards.
The certification of the HexelOne “Raised Pressure” system for the dimension 110×10.0 mm includes the pipe and a complete system with mechanical and welded connections and transition of materials to traditional materials. The first HexelOne projects have been completed successfully.
egeplast is one of the leading manufacturers of PE pressure pipes in Europe. The product range covers the entire underground piping infrastructure: pipes for drinking water, wastewater, gas and data. egeplast is a specialist in the development and production of pipes for trenchless installation, on request with barrier and leak locating function.
