Barrier pipe consists of 3 or 5 concentric co-extruded layers of material which are combined into one integral pipe wall. The low elastic modulus of Polybutene-1, combined with reduced wall thickness gives rise to a low surge pressure for a given pipe OD and pressure rating. For sound conduction through solids, the sound insulation and absorption of the material are important criteria and this is a function of the density and elasticity of the material. The low elastic modulus of PB-1, plus reduced wall thickness gives a low surge pressure for a given pipe OD and pressure rating. Specifies the performance requirements for thermoplastics pipes and plastics or metal fittings used for hot and cold water pressure systems.

The international standards for production consider this working temperature for this application, where Class 2 is defined as applicable.
Polybutene-1 | Pipe Performance
The maximum surge pressures caused by water hammer can be calculated using the following equation taken from the 'Handbook of Thermoplastic Piping System Design', Thomas Sixsmith and Reinhard Hanselka, Marcel Dekker Inc. A column of moving water within a pipeline contains stored kinetic energy arising from its mass and velocity. However, the calculation of wall thickness depends on other additional standardised requirements with the result that with pipe diameters of less than 16mm, all polyolefin pipes must comply to a minimum fixed thickness standard defined for a specific material.
Oil-based lacquer paints isl be used with a primer. In this respect, the ease of cabling through drilled holes and threading through confined spaces, combined with long pipe runs and therefore a reduction in the number of fittings required, are all factors which contribute to the speed of installation and associated reduction in labour costs.
These temperature classes are compiled to 1050 the likely cross-section of service conditions for a hour period ieo a range of different heating and water supply applications. The central layer is an adhesive material which is compatible with both the inner and outer functional materials to form an integral structure. If it is painted, it is preferable to use emulsion paints water-based to paint Polybutene The joints can be performed by using butt weldingsocket welding or press-fitting.
This standard procedure is usually carried out by accredited independent pipe testing institutes to verify the performance of all thermoplastic hot and cold water pipe materials.
Small amounts of oxygen will enter all isl water circuits whatever the type of pipe used, and therefore to protect the system against the effects of corrosion, inhibitors are added 105508 the circulating water. Flexibility is an advantage offered by a number of plastics in comparison with metals, however Polybutene-1 is clearly the plastic material of choice as illustrated in the following table, where typical flexural elasticity values of various polyolefin pipe materials are compared.

In the case of outdoor use, it should be sheathed or painted to protect it. Plastic pipes reduce and muffle the transmission of both mechanical noise and 'water hammer' effects.
The mechanical noises which accompany 10058 heating and cooling cycles of heating pipe systems made from metals are almost eliminated when plastic piping systems are used. PB-1 can however be attacked by non-polar organic solvents, such as benzene, toluene, carbon chloride, etc.
For pipe diameters greater than 16mm however, it is allowable to calculate pipe thicknesses according to standardised performance isoo where the advantages of using Polybutene-1 can be realised in terms of lower pipe weight isk hence less raw material consumption and cost. Mechanical Noise For sound conduction through solids, the sound insulation and absorption of the material are important criteria and this is a function of the density and elasticity of the material.
Chlorine is a harsh oxidising agent for both Polybutene and other polyolefins. Performance for hot and cold pressure pipes With its high resistance to creep over a wide temperature range coupled with low thermal expansion, Polybutene-1 has a particularly good fit with the industry requirements for pressure pipes use in domestic, commercial and industrial hot and cold water systems.

The advantages of the 5-layer structure are that the EVOH layer is protected from both physical and atmospheric effects, and hence provides a superior oxygen barrier performance per unit weight of EVOH.
Although the 105508 plastic materials developed for pipes could not compete with the properties of the traditional iron or steel pipes, the advances in researches and development of materials have made the plastic pipes to be nowadays one of the materials to choose for the water supply, due to the economic and environmental balance that they represent.

Underfloor Heating Low Temp. To achieve the best results, due consideration should be given to the choice of pipe and fitting materials and the optimum layout of the piping system iiso to the building's construction. Oxygen will almost always be present in any system as it can enter through a number of points, such as open header tanks, valves, threaded joints and pumps, and also through gas permeable materials.
At temperatures above the glass transition temperature, Tg, the sound speed is greatly reduced and sound absorption is greatly increased.
The typical service temperature of a heating or potable water installation is well above this Tg so sound transmission is significantly reduced. The tests performed in our laboratories indicate optimum behaviour and resistance in these conditions.
