DVGW Certificate for HexelOne® High-Pressure Pipe System
The HexelOne® High-Pressure Pipe System has been certified by the DVGW for gas and drinking water applications. The thus approved use of this plastic pipe system in high-pressure settings enables users to benefit from two kinds of cost-saving potentials in the context of high-pressure applications which previously could only be achieved for low-pressure applications: The corrosion resistance of these pipes makes cathodic corrosion protection redundant and permits the use of modern installation techniques which shorten construction time while at the same time significantly reducing construction costs.
Its reinforcement opens new areas of use for the egeplast HexelOne®, with permissable operating pressures of 30 bar for water and 16 bar for gas, thus exceeding the range of applications previously covered by PE pipes. The stability achieved by the HexelOne® pipe with its reinforcement layer of high-strength PE strapping is twice as high as the one provided by PE-100 full-wall pipes. Owing to their protective layer and inner layer made of PE 100-RC, these pipes are suitable for trenchless installation. The DVGW certificate for drinking water covers dimensions from d 90 mm to d 125 mm. In addition, HexelOne® gas pipes have been certified for up to d 160 mm.
