Temperature Adjustments

Temperature Adjustments or Chemical Agents in TKP pipe

The TKP pipe is made of high-density polyethylene with the most advanced materials available on the market, however, the nature of polymers, especially polyolefins, are affected when subjected to constant periods of high temperature during their useful life.

 

The two effects of temperature that must be taken into account when designing and installing the TKP pipe are:

 

 

  1. The expansion and thermal contraction.

  2. Adjustment to working pressure.

Thermal expansion and contraction must be considered during design, layout and installation. Although the coefficient of expansion and contraction of the TKP pipe is greater than for other materials, the forces generated by the thermal stress are much lower, since the modulus of elasticity is smaller and the pipe is capable of presenting relaxation.

Certifications

The TKP pipe meets the requirements of the following Certifications:

International Certifications:

 

 

 

ASTM F-714 PE PIPE 4 "- 65" DIAM.- Applicable to medium and large diameter pressure fluid pipes.

 ​

ASTM D3350 CLASSIFICATION CELL FOR HDPE MATERIALS:   Certifies the correct selection and application of Raw Materials.

 ​ ​

AWWA C906 Applicable to PE pipe of medium and large diameters: 4 "-65" for use in drinking water pipe.

PPI PE 4710.- Applicable to PE pipe with performance of PE-4710 according to Technical Report TR-4 of the Institute of Plastic Pipes.

 ​

PPI PE 100.- Applicable to PE pipe with performance of PE-100 according to Technical Report TR-4 of the Institute of Plastic Pipes.

 ​

Several TKP pipelines are listed in the PPI´s TR4, as PE-4710 and PE-100, products as well. 

NSF 14.- Plastic piping systems components and related materials.


NSF 61.- Drinking water systems components.

ISO-9001:2015.- Quality management systems. Requirements. 

 

Cubication Table for Cargo Vehicles

The TKP pipe is manufactured under a continuous plastic extrusion process, which means that the pipe is obtained as a single element which can be cut into sections of desired length. In the smaller tubes, the flexibility of the pipe allows it to be rolled in even longer lengths.

 

 

As desired, the TKP tubes can be cut to lengths that make transportation more practical, taking into account that the length of a normal land transport unit is approximately 12.19 m. (40 feet) it is recommended that the sections be 12 m in length.

 

 

There are also 15 m trailer boxes. of length (50 feet), if you have that possibility, you can ask for the sections cut to that length.

Below we present a table with the number of sections of TKP pipe that can be sent according to the diameter, in order to guide our customers of a number of meters of tube that can be shipped in each transport unit and provide them the calculation of the freight expenses of a special order.

Properties of the Raw Material

TKP pipe is made from the most advanced and recognized materials of our industry.

All resins are rated PE-4710 and / or PE-100 endorsed by the Plastic Pipes Institute (PPI) and included in its Technical Report 4 (TR4).

In addition to its main qualities, it is given a classification cell: 445574 according to ASTM D3350, with an HDB of 1600 psi @ 73 ° F and 1000 psi @ 140 ° F and has an NSF 14/61 certification for the use in potable water systems, with CC 2 or CC3 code of resistance of chlorine for sanitization.

Each batch is subject to receipt tests that verify the stipulated quality and are duly endorsed by a Quality Certificate of Origin from our suppliers, completing the traceability of the TKP pipeline to its raw materials.

The data sheet information of the resin is available to our customers under request.
