the measurement – X – from the O-ring to the base of the socket governs the maximum length of pipe which can be connected by individual joints. Silicone or Vaseline.Ring-seal socket joint Available from ∅ 32 to 160 mm. because the socket does not act as an expander. Assembly instructions are the same for both ring-seal sockets and screw-threaded joints. The O-ring remains fixed in the seat and is always in contact with the pipe. Assembly May be used either vertically or horizontally. The pipe must be fully inserted into the socket. The effective sleeve length. the socket seal has very satisfactory resistance to heat and no shrinkage of the O-ring occurs. Do not use mineral oil or grease which can damage the rubber seal. The small overall dimensions provide an advantage where space is limited. Connection properties a) to be opened d) non-tension-resistant Use Ring-seal socket joints can be used to provide a connection between various prefabricated parts for simpler assembly. i. The O-ring has a round seat regardless of pipe movements. 11 . e. For HDPE approximately 15 mm of spigot should be allowed for every 1 m of pipe. lubricating it with soft soap. Owing to the pipe thickness and the low thermal conductivity of HDPE. x Length «X» varies with the diameter Ideal fitting is obtained by chamfering the pipe end to approximately 15°. the sleeve lengths are the same for corresponding diameters. Protection cap Ring-seal sockets are provided with a yellow protection cap to prevent the ingress of debris during installation. Can easily be assembled or released even where access is difficult.

Screw-threaded joint with flange bushing Connection properties a) to be opened c) tension-resistant Use Wherever there is the possibility that a pipe can be pulled out of a screw-threaded joint by axial tensile forces a flange bushing must be used to ensure that the connection will resist these forces.

Speciall application fields Underground drainage pipes for housing

Underground drainage pipes of Geberit HDPE Not only has Geberit HDPE proven itself excellently for many years for drainage systems inside of buildings such as: – soil and waste stacks – vent pipes – connection and branch pipes – collector pipes but it is also suitable for underground applications as: – ground pipes – domestic drainage pipes

2. Resistance to chemicals Geberit HDPE provides the assurance of universal resistance to the greatly diversified types of chemical attack by the disposal water, as well as by external factors (acidic soils). 3. Flexibility Geberit HDPE is a flexible, operationally reliable drainage system, even in soils in which a certain degree of settling of ground must be anticipated. 4. Resistance to frost Geberit HDPE has proven itself excellently for many years in frost endangered soils such as in Scandinavia. It can be used in temperatures ranging down to –40°. 5. Material As in domestic drainage systems, the quality of the material is the main criterion for underground

applications. In addition to the attack from the inside, the pipes are also subjected to attacks from outside. Geberit HDPE excellently stands up to all these requirements.

1

Trench The trench is to be dug as narrow as possible – but not narrower than the pipe diameter + 40 cm. The floor of the trench must be level and free from rocks and loose clumps. Correct elevation and slope are also important.

2

B = Bedding Under normal soil conditions the trench is provided with a bedding layer of round gravel (grading up to 30 mm) or of broken material (grading up to 10 mm) of a thickness of approx. 100 mm. The bedding layer must be compacted and tamped. In certain cases it will be neccessary to reinforce the ground.

3

U = Underpinning After the pipe has been laid, recesses are to be provided for sockets and flanges so that the pipe is supported along its entire length. The underpinning is to be done with a tamping post or the like. It must be done very carefully. If several pipes are laid, make sure that the lowest one is fully covered before the one above is placed. The pipe must lay flat, and it must be installed with the correct slope.

4

C = Consolidation layer The material is to be filled in layers of approx. 100 mm thickness. Tamping can be done by stamping with the feet, or with a special tool. The purpose of this material is to help prevent the pipe from deforming, so that it must be compacted well on both sides at the same time .

P = Protective layer Now fill in a layer of the same material (must not contain rocks which could cause point loading of the pipe) of at least 300 cm. Attention: To prevent the pipe from rising the trench is to be finish-filled on the same day up to and including the protection layer.

6

HS = Safety margin height For the further filling the available material is to be used. The trench must not contain rocks which cannot be lifted by hand. As soon as permitted by the safety margin height, this compacting can be done by machine. The regulations and byelaws on the refilling of trenches are to be observed.

Distribution of ground pressure The ground pressure and ground load distribution are governed essentially by the compaction. For calculation the appropriate standards and the local building and safety regulations are to be observed.

The rigid fixings must be stronger than the possible expansion or contraction forces of the HDPE pipe. Geberit pipes can be installed rigidly with relatively low effort, for which the following elements are required:

Once the ice melts.5 g/10 min.4 – 0. This describes the working properties of the pipe and at the same time gives information on the molecular weight. they stretch elastically as the ice expands. for instance.43 W/m · K HDPE is a bad heat conductor. Heat conductivity 0. Geberit HDPE pipes are therefore stored in hot water baths after manufacture. the higher the molecular weight and thus the pipe’s resistance to stress corrosion. Melt-flow index 0. is of the hard quality and has increased durability properties. as there is no chance of joints pulling apart later due to shortening of length. Resistance to cold When Geberit HDPE parts are filled with water and then freeze. remaining completely intact and undamaged. Heat loss is about 90% less. Tempered 10 mm per meter (licence Geberit International AG) The safest way of avoiding the inevitable heat reserves (shortening of dimensions) after heat load in the plastic pipe. The Geberit type at up to 955 kg/m3. Flexibility The flexibility of the piping material can be the main criterion in certain buildings or on bridges. The smaller the melt-flow index. which is crucial for a number of raw material properties. for this reason the pipe does not become completely warmed through when heat loaded for a short period. This process increases the safety of the joints.

please ask the manufacturer for more information relevant to the particular application. Its resistance to impact is very high even at extremely low temperatures (down to approx. its extra thick walls offer additional protection.Comments on the individual properties Resistance to radioactive effluents There is no risk of damage as a result of slightly radioactive water. for every 50°C increase in temperature. Resistance to impact Geberit HDPE is unbreakable at room temperature.17 mm/m · K Heat expansion of HDPE is relatively high. Temperatures of up to 100°C for short periods (e. surges of steam) are permissible. –40°C) and thus meets the requirements for outlet pipes. A pipe’s resistance to abrasion is a particularly important factor in branch pipes. up to 80°C. Resistance to abrasion Drainage systems are increasingly becoming hidden refuse chutes. Heat expansion 0.g. 63 . soil stacks and ground pipes. No condensate should form during short periods of undercooling. Resistance to hot water Geberit HDPE can be safely used as waste pipe with no mechanical load. As a rule of thumb. an expansion of 10 mm of linear meter of pipe can be anticipated. Condensate Geberit HDPE is a poor conductor of heat. However. HDPE is highly resistant to abrasion.

) cause halogenised polyethylene and hydrogen halide to form at room temperature. Geberit HDPE is only soluble in aliphatic and aromatic carbons and their chlorinating products at over 90°C. H2 S04) when exposed over long periods at room temperature. HN03. the wetting factor of the rubber ring in the joint is very low. Free halogens (chlorine. conc. The material will be attacked by heavily oxidized media (conc. 64 . This can be done by means of the duct wall. the classification of plastics according to the usual fire test for construction materials does not permit a valid statement on the behaviour of plastic construction parts in the event of a fire. there is no risk of the seal being destroyed.Comments on the individual properties Behaviour in fire Plastics are inflammable. insulating paint etc. Chemical resistance Because of its paraffinic structure. Geberit HDPE is highly resistant to chemicals. The only criteria to be observed here are the purpose for which the pipe is intended and the concentration of halogens. Solar radiation Geberit HDPE pipes are protected against ageing and embrittlement caused by UV rays by the addition of approximately 2% soot. bromine etc. Geberit HDPE should therefore not be used at all in areas where free halogens are produced or used. because the rubber ring is installed under compression on all sides and therefore cannot swell. but airborne noise should be insulated. cast resins. The halogenised polyethylene has different physical and chemical properties from the original hydrocarbon. Its resistance can be summarized briefly as follows: Geberit HDPE is insoluble in all inorganic and organic solutions at 20°C. In addition. HDPE limits solid-borne conduction. NB: Such conditions do not occur in drainage pipes. HDPE cable protection ducts. Non-conductive Plastics have an excellent reputation as insulators in the electronics industry. Sealing material Although the chemical resistance of the seal does not equal that of HDPE. Many years of experience have shown that the sealing material can endure even the harshest conditions. However. HDPE Silent or Geberit Isol. Noise HDPE is a soft material with a low E-modulus. but the polymer is not destroyed.

Painting Geberit HDPE is not suitable for painting. Simple tools allow for easy processing. Geberit HDPE pipes are used for milk transportation lines in mountain areas and in the food canning and packing industry. If painting is unavoidable. transportation lines etc.) is subject to a maximum pressure load of 15 m Water Column (1. The welding temperature for HDPE is approximately 230°C. Its water repellent properties and the flexibility of the material both have a negative impact on paint. Non-toxic Plastics are well suited for use in the food industry as packaging material.5 bar) and a temperature of 30°C (10 years). Protection against blockages HDPE’s water-repelling properties are highly beneficial in this regard. – Rapid outflow of water – Prevention of deposits Welding temperature Thermoplasts are processed with a high level of energy efficiency. 65 . Their use in low-pressure areas (swimming pools. The temperatures required are relatively low in comparison with metals. bottles etc. Scope of use Geberit HDPE pipes are designed for drainage systems. have shown that the butt welds do not give any problems as the welding parts are circular on the inside and do not add to the normal risk of blocking. There is also a certain range of moulded fittings. containers. the paint product to be used should be tested for compatibility with the HDPE.Comments on the individual properties Tightness Many years of experience with welding HDPE-Pipes.

Molecules after Geberit annealing process (all Geberit HDPE pipes) Tempering of Geberit pipes reduces mechanical stress on joints and fixations.The importance of tempering Effects of annealing of Geberit HDPE pipes The safest way of avoiding the inevitable heat shortening of dimensions after heat load in the plastic pipe is to take preventative measures (Tempering) during manufacture. Geberit pipes are therefore stored in a hot water bath after manufacture. Through this process even the high precision requirements for electroweld sleeve couplings can be met. admitted shortening according to Geberit licence 50 mm 67 . this allows the expanded molecules to relax and return to their normal state = No stresses on Geberit pipes.

The significance of the pH value One of the most crucial factors in selecting a material for a drainage installation is the chemical loading of the effluent being discharged.5 2. . for example. can be used safely with pH values from 0 to 14. g. Therefore in order to select the most suitable material to handle a specific discharge it is important not only to know the pH value of the effluent but the chemical resistance of the pipe materials. . The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 (see table below). . .8 9 –13 2– 4 Cola drinks Apple juice Tartaric acid Citric acid Washing solutions Toilet cleaner 68 . (see Chemical Resistance tables on pages 65 to asses the performance of Geberit HDPE at various temperatures) The pH value is therefore important in assessing the chemical level as it will indicate whether the effluent is acid.
