More Advantages of PE Pipe

We’ve previously mentioned how useful HDPE pipe is when it comes to its strong corrosion resistance and durability. There are other advantages that make the pipe worth considering for your next job if the circumstances allow it. Let’s explore a few of these.

Ease of installation and maintenance. Because polyethylene (PE) pipe is so flexible, installing it is an easy task. Even if the weather conditions outside are cold, there is little hassle involved in PE pipe installation. On top of that, the pipe can last for several decades, as long as 100 years in some cases. That means there is less of a need to replace pipes, saving time, money, and resources.

Joining systems. The design of PE pipe means it’s practically made to be joined through electrofusion or butt welding as opposed to having to rely on flanges or mechanical fittings. If you already have a fusion machine, this can potentially make the pipe fusion process that much easier.

Environmental friendliness. PE pipe is made of a recyclable type of plastic which can be performed via a triage process. Knowing that the pipe can be recycled and reused for future projects is definitely something to be proud of.

Improve the Life of Your Machinery Equipment

Machinery equipment is an important albeit pricey investment. Hence, it’s important to stay proactive and ensure that ongoing maintenance is a top priority so it becomes easier to identify potential issues before they can become an expensive, time-consuming repair.

For starters, make your maintenance procedure more than just regularly changing or lubricating filters. Take the time to commit to your machines by fully understanding how they work and thoroughly reading the manuals. Any work that’s performed by you or a qualified person on the maintenance team should be written down so that everyone is on the same page as to what work was performed. You can never be too detailed in this aspect.

Have you examined the fluids? It’s one of the easiest and most accurate methods of seeing what may be going on “under the hood” of your machines. The better understanding you have of how your machines operate internally, the better able you are to anticipate problems before they turn into a major issue.

Is Your Machinery Equipment Worth Purchasing or Renting?

 

 

Machinery equipment is a major investment that requires factoring potentially thousands of dollars into your budget. Depending on your needs, you may be wondering whether it’s better to purchase the equipment or rent it out. Let’s explore some considerations to help you make an informed decision.

The convenience versus the cost. Will you benefit in the long term from purchasing the equipment outright? Keep in mind that should you decide to purchase, there will more than likely come a time when you’ll need to do some maintenance or possible repair work on the machine to ensure its proper upkeep.
The level of usage. How often will you be using the machinery equipment? Will you and/or team use it enough to justify its price tag? Maybe renting it for the few times you may need it would work better for your budget if the machine isn’t going to receive a lot of usage.

Location usage. Do you perform a lot of work in other areas beyond your local area? Putting it mildly, shipping a machine can cost a pretty penny, and it can add up if you frequently travel. Renting as needed may help with saving money.

Myths About HDPE Pipe

HDPE pipe has long been praised for its flexibility, resistance to corrosion, durability, and numerous other qualities, which collectively have made it a prime tool for outdoor or buried pipelines. As with any proven technology, however, there are myths surrounding it that you may unintentionally believe are true.

For starters, mechanical joints can indeed be used for buried applications. There is a misconception that these types of joints do not have the same performance as a fused joint, but with right fusion, they can perform well.

Speaking of fusing, while it does remain the well-established standard when it comes to reliability and strength, it’s worth remembering that the strength and integrity of the joints are dependent on several factors including the person performing the joint fusion. Weather conditions, the possibility of surface contamination, all of these may affect the joint. If another method works better than fusing for your purposes, don’t be afraid to use it. The fusion process is also one that is incredibly effective yet takes time. Again, several variables may affect the process such as weather that may force the cooling process to take longer than it normally does.

Do you have pipe fusion needs? We have the equipment to help you take care of the job.

All About Pipe Joints

In environments where temperatures can reach freezing or below freezing, it is possible to run into a scenario known as pipe joint failure. As the name suggests, these failures occur in the area where the pipe ends are joined together, which is considered the weakest pipeline installation point.

While pipes are frequently tested to ensure they can withstand stress, the same isn’t always the case for the joints. When conditions become harsh, this may cause problems. These joints are typically fused using either butt fusion or electrofusion. While both of these methods may run into issues in freezing conditions, the latter can become more of an issue than the former. The reason for electrofusion issues is the sensitivity to welding conditions.

Should pipe freeze, it will result in forces in a pair of directions. When a solid such as water expands, it will cause expansion and force the pipe outwards, resulting in what’s called “hoop stress”. The second force on the pipe will cause the plastic to shrink along the length of the pipe, causing a pull on the pipe from where it is fixed, or jointed at one of the ends. Along with this force, the coupler itself will shrink, exerting force in the opposite direction and, therefore, placing additional pressure on the joint.

A joint that’s been done well will be ductile, allowing the plastic to stretch without the risks of cracks or outright failures.

Work Better with the Acrobat

Thanks to its multitude of machines, McElroy offers a wide-reaching assortment of choice when it comes to narrowing down the correct fusion machine to ensure the job is performed safely and productively. Similar to the widely used TracStar series, the McElroy Acrobat line is a common tool used for pipe fusion jobs.

The Acrobat fusion machines are among the top tier when it comes to butt fusing polypropylene piping systems typically seen in modern, highly advanced HVAC, mechanical and commercial plumbing applications. Its manageable weight in addition to a design intended to be compact allows easy Acrobat operation no matter if the pipe is being fused in ceilings, walls or underground. The machine can butt fuse pipe and fittings with many different pressure ratings. Transport it across joints with the peace of mind and dependability of sturdy strength and long-term performance that you have come to associate with the McElroy name.

At MIMECO, we have a trio of Acrobat machines available: the Acrobat 180, 250, and 315. Contact us today for more information on these machines.
