Applications
Introduction
Polypropylene is one of the most
common, fastest growing and versatile
thermoplastics currently used. Each
year many tons of this material are
converted into diverse products ranging
from plastic bags through automobile
parts to tanks and chemical piping
systems.
From a chemical standpoint, polypropylene is closely related to polyethylene. As members of the group of
materials known as polyolefins, both
of these plastics are composed of only
carbon and hydrogen. This contrasts
with other commonly used plastic
material such as PVC and PTFE which
contain chlorine and flurorine respectively.

Physical Properties
The physical properties of polypropylene combine strength, low weight,
abrasion resistance, impact strength
and a wide operating temperature
range, making it a very suitable material for use in load bearing products.
Combined with excellent all round
chemical resistance and low water
absorption, these properties combine to
provide a material that meets all of the
requirements for use in a piping system.

Good Temperature
Resistance
The George Fischer polypropylene
piping system is pressure rated to 150
psi (10 bar) at 70F (21C) with a long
term safety factor of 2.1. The upper long
term temperature limit for polypropylene
is 176F (80C) and the temperature limit
for short term use is 212F (100C).
However, as with all thermoplastic
piping systems, an increase in temperature is combined with a decrease in
operating pressure.

Chemical Resistance
The chemical resistance properties of
polypropylene are excellent. It is resistant
to aqueous solutions of acids, alkalis
and salts and to a large number of
organic solvents. This wide range of
chemical resistance allows this material
to be used for many piping systems that
handle different chemicals including
caustics, acids and solvents. Polypropylene is not suitable for handling
concentrated oxidizing acids and
halogens.

Purity
George Fischer polypropylene complies
with guidelines listed in the Federal
Register, CFR Title 21, chapter 1,
177.1520 a (1) for polypropylene and c
(1.1) for compounds. George Fischer
polypropylene is suitable for transport
of potable water, foodstuffs, and high
purity deionized water.

Greater Safety and
Economy

In contrast with conventional PP


homopolymers, Beta (b)-PP
possesses a superior impact
strength both at room
temperature and also at low
temperatures.

Daplen Beta ()-PP is a polypropylene


homopolymer with an exceptionally
homogeneous, fine structure and
significantly higher impact strength.
The high degree of crystallinity of
these substances ensures an excellent
resistance to chemicals. This is further
improved by the titanium dioxide
pigment used.
The long-term creep strength was
assured by endurance tests in
accordance with ISO TR 9080 and
certified with the value MRS 10
(minimum required strength).

Optimum processing for the


better material

We offer a complete range of plastic


piping components, including pipes,
fittings (socket and butt-fusion fittings),
manually operated valves and
actuated valves in one material.
In addition to the outstanding
characteristics of polypropylene homopolymer, this also provides unlimited
compatibility for the mutual weldability
of various PP types for users and final
consumers.

Extruded pipes and precision


molded fittings
An innovative extrusion process ensures
optimum conversion of the raw
material potential to a high-grade pipe
product with minimum internal stresses.
The special method of processing
achieves extremely smooth internal
surfaces in the pipes, which are in no
way inferior in topography to injection
moldings.

Beta ()-PP combines all the required


favorable properties for modern
industrial pipeline construction,
including:
Excellent resistance to chemicals
High impact strength
High thermal resistance
High stress crack resistance
Excellent fusion capability
Homogeneous, fine structure

Your benefit in application


Comprehensive tests bear witness to
the special barrier effect of a
homogeneous and fine-crystalline pipe
wall construction with regard to
interaction with a wide range of
media. The significantly improved
internal surface further substantially
increases the resistance of the pipes to
chemicals. The resulting optimized flow
behavior reduces the danger of
erosion and deposition.

The pipes comply in all features with


DIN 8077/8078 type 1.
The many years of process know-how
acquired by the two companies
George Fischer Piping Systems and
DEKA Pipe Systems provides the ideal
product package from an outstanding
raw material for processors and plant
operators.

For a complete guide to
proper installation techniques,
the George Fischer factory
sponsored installer certification program is recommended.
It teaches a basic understanding of plastics and fusion
technology. For more
information, contact your
George Fischer representative.

The George Fischer polypropylene


piping system is available in sizes from
3/8" to 12". The system includes valves
through 12."
This system includes all commonly
required pressure pipe fittings, including
threaded adaptors and flanges for
ease of mating to equipment or other
piping materials. Ball valves are
available in sizes 3/8" to 6", diaphragm valves from 1/2" to 6" and
butterfly valves in sizes 2 1/2" to 12".
Other valves including check valves
and metering valves are also available
in this system.

Fusion Joining Reliablity

Acid neutralization facility


uses George Fischer
polypropylene piping and
valves in overhead
installation.

Socket Fusion Joining can be used to


join socket fusion fittings available in
sizes 16-110mm (3/8"-4"). The socket
fusion method of joining uses a heated
non-stick female bushing to melt the
outside of the pipe end and a heated
non-stick male bushing to heat the
inside of the corresponding size of
fitting. After several seconds, when the
outside of the pipe and the inside of
the fitting are melted, the bushings are
removed and the pipe is pushed into
the fitting. Due to the large area of
pipe to fitting contact (3-5 times the
cross sectional area of the pipe), the
resulting joint is actually several times
stronger than the pipe itself. The pipe
and fittings for this system are also
manufactured to have an interference
fit; because of this interference it is not
possible to slide a fitting over the pipe
without the use of heat to melt the
surface to be joined. This feature
prevents the possibility of inadvertently
leaving a joint unfused, and more
importantly causes displacement of
some material during fusion thereby
guaranteeing a high strength, reliable,
reproducible joint.

5.8
05_ALL

Assembly and joining of this system is


performed by heat fusion. Fusion joints
are made by heating and melting the
pipe and fitting together. This type of
joint gives a homogeneous transition
between the two components without
the lowering of chemical resistance
associated with solvent cement joining
and without the loss of integrity and
loss of pressure handling ability of a
threaded joint.
Three different fusion methods for
polypropylene are available and

commonly used in today's demanding


applications. These include socket
fusion, regular butt fusion, and Infrared
(IR) fusion.

IR Plus Infrared Butt Fusion Joining


is an ideal method to join IR fusion
fittings in the size range of 20-225mm
(1/2"-9") to achieve the maximum joint
consistancy. Regular butt fusion can
also be used to join IR and butt
fusion fittings in the size range of
20mm and up.
Butt fusion pipe and fittings both have
the same inside and outside diameters.
To make a butt fusion joint, the pipe
and fitting are clamped so that the
ends to be joined are facing each
other. The ends are then "faced" flat
and parallel. A flat heating plate is
used to simultaneously heat both faces
to be joined. When each end is
molten the heating plate is removed
and the pipe and fitting are brought
together. Joining is achieved by fusion
between the molten materials.
George Fischer is constantly searching
for and developing new joining procedures to improve mechanical strengths,
ensure repeatability, and simplify
operation. A recent development is the

Using the new, fully automated, digital
indicating fusion machinery, high
strength butt fusion joints can be made
with many advantages over the conventional, pressure type butt fusion
methods. A non-contact, IR heating
plate is used, along with a
predetermined overlap to join the pipe
(or fitting) ends together to eliminate
operator error and provide a reliable,
reproducible, high strength joint with

Piping System Design


As with all piping systems, proper
selection and design is necessary to
ensure that a successful installation can
be made. Before using this polypropylene piping system, the user should
ensure that the polypropylene is
suitable for contact with the liquids to
be handled. This information may be
readily found in a chemical resistance
chart. If polypropylene is chemically
compatible and the operating temperature and pressure are within the
previously discussed limits, then the
system may be used. However it
should be designed to include
allowances for expansion and
contraction, pressure drops and proper
pipe support.
Length changes in plastic pipelines are
commonly caused by thermal expansion
due to changes in ambient
temperature and changes in the temperature of the media being handled.
The length change for polypropylene
will be 0.0000837 inches per inch of
length per degree Fahrenheit temperature change. So if the temperature of
a 100 foot straight length of pipe is
raised from 30F (-1C) to 80F (27C)
it would grow by 5 inches. The pipeline must be installed in such a way
that this expansion can be accounted
for. Common practice is to use either
expansion loops or change of direction
to achieve this. In both of these cases,
a length of pipe running perpendicular
to the change in length is used to
absorb the expansion by being bent.

5.9
6/7/02, 11:08 AM

Pressure drop calculations are used to


ensure correct pipe and pump sizing.
By summation of pressure drop figures
through each length of pipe, fitting
and valve, a total value for the system
can be found.
This value can be used to help in
pump selections. If the value is too
high for the available pumps, then use
of larger diameter pipe, fittings and
valves should be recommended to
decrease the allowed pressure drop
for the chosen flow rate.
Correct support is also necessary to
prevent sagging and damage to the
pipe. The distance between the pipe
brackets depends upon the pipe
diameter and the specific gravity of the
media as well as the maximum
working and ambient temperatures. If
the media to be handled is hot, then it
is often advantageous to provide
continuous horizontal support by laying
the pipe within V or U shaped
channels, made of metal or a heat
resistant plastic. Pipe clamps should
preferably be made of plastic, and
should allow longitudinal movement of
the pipe. Pipe clamps that clamp
tightly onto the outside of the pipe do
not allow proper expansion and may
cause damage to the pipe.

Polypropylene Applications
Waste
Over a period of many years, polypropylene has become a preferred
material for handling many different
types of liquid waste. This materials
wide range of chemical resistance
makes it very suitable for handling the
wide range of different chemicals and
mixtures that are found in different
waste streams. The unsuitability of
polypropylene for use with concentrated oxidizing acids is generally not
a problem because these acids will
usually be diluted before they are
disposed of. The high resistance of
polypropylene to solvents is particularly important, because many solvents
do not mix in water and often end up
floating in a concentrated form near
the top of the pipe. Thus, even
though a waste stream may contain
only 1% of a solvent, it is often not
possible to regard this dilution because most of the solvent will often
float to the top of the pipe. The
materials high temperature capabilities
are also important in enabling it to
handle any exothermic reactions that
may occur when different chemicals
mix.

Butt fusion fittings are


available in sizes 1/2
through 12.

Deionized Water
Large volumes of distilled or deionized
water are used by a wide range of
different industries. This water is often
used for diluting chemicals, washing
and rinsing. Polypropylene is
commonly used as a piping material
for conveying this water. Although it
does not have the ultra-purity of PVDF,
polypropylene piping systems are able
to maintain the purity required in all
but the most demanding installations.
Fusion joining gives fast reliable joining
without the use of hazardous and
noxious solvents that may contaminate
the water. The total quantity of
added lubricants and organic
materials in polypropylene is far less
than found in many other plastic
piping materials. The use of a pigmented material is recommended to
reduce degradation of the pipe
material from ultraviolet light. The
pigmented pipe wall will prevent the
transmission of ambient light into the
pipe material. This prevents possible
degradation of the pipe wall and
corresponding particulation of plastic into
the water stream.

Caustic Solutions
The chemical resistance of polypropylene to caustic solutions such as
potassium hydroxide and sodium
hydroxide is very good. The fusion
joining method gives strong joints that
are resistant to attack by these
strongly caustic solutions. This
contrasts to solvent cemented joints
which may be attacked by some
caustic solutions. For these reasons
polypropylene is often used to transport caustic soda used for neutralizing
acidic waste streams.
General Chemical Handling
The wide range of chemical resistance
of polypropylene makes it suitable for
use in applications where a piping
system may be required to carry
different chemicals or mixtures of
chemicals. In this case polypropylene
is often found to be one of the most
suitable materials for handling combinations of many chemicals.

Allowing for length changes in PP pipelines


General
Variations in temperature cause greater
length changes in thermoplastic materials
than in metals. In the case of aboveground, wall or duct mounted pipework,
particularly where subjected to varying
working temperatures, it is necessary to
make suitable provision for length changes
in order to prevent additional stresses.

various materials
x10 - 6 (inch/inchC)
200

150

Length changes can be taken up by the


following means:
a. Flexible sections
b. Expansion joints

80

The flexible section is used most frequently,


as it is the simplest and most economical
method. The calculation and positioning
of flexible sections are, therefore, described in detail.

Calculation and Positioning of Flexible Sections


Fundamentals
It is possible to take advantage of the very
low modulus of elasticity of PP by including special sections of pipe which compensate thermal length changes. The
length of the flexible section mainly depends upon the pipe diameter and the
extent of the length change to be compensated. In order to simplify planning
and installation, the third influencing factorthe pipe wall temperature is not
taken into account, particularly as installation usually takes place in the temperature range between 5 and 25C (41 and
77F).

Where the pipework changes direction or


branches off there is always a natural flexible section. Movement of the flexible section a caused by the length change l
must not be impeded in the area concerned by too tightly mounted pipe brackets, jutting brickwork, girders or similar.

Determining the Length


Change (L) (Example 1)
In order to determine the length of
flexible section required, the extent of the
length change must be ascertained first
of all, by means of the following formula
where
L = L T
(mm) = (m) (C) (mm/m C)
or (inch) = (inch) (C) (inch/inch C)
or (inch) = (inch) (F) (inch/inch F)
L = length change in mm or inches.
L = length in m or inches of the pipe
or pipe section where the length
change is to be determined.
T = difference between installation
temperature and maximum or
minimum working temperature
respectively in C (or F).
= coefficient of linear expansion of
the pipe material in mm/m C,
(inches/inch C), or inch/inch F
(see tables below).
Values for

0.15 mm/m C
or 0.00015 inch/inch C
or 0.0000837 inch/inch F
The length change can also be taken
directly from diagram 1 as shown on the
following pages.
Important: If the working temperature is
higher than the installation temperature
the pipe becomes longer. If, on the other
hand, it is lower than the installation
temperature, the pipe becomes shorter.
Therefore: the installation temperature as
well as the maximum and minimum
working temperatures must be taken into
account.
L

Installation temperature

-I

The procedure is explained using a


coolant pipe as an example:
Length of the pipe from the fixed point to
the branch where the length change is to
be taken up: L = 8 m (315 inches)
Installation temperature: Tv = 15C
Temperature of the coolant: T1= -12 C

Temperature when defrosting and


cleaning: T2 = +35 C
Material: PP
L=8m

F fixed point

Contraction during service with coolant:


L1 = L T1 = 8 27 (.15) = 32.4 mm
315 27 (.00015) = 1 .28 in.

Expansion during defrosting and cleaning:


+L2 = L T2 - 8 20 .15 - 24 mm
315 20 (.00015) = .94 in.
Important:
1 . It is of advantage to indicate pipe

Difference in temperature
T1 = Tv T1 = 27C
T2 = T2 Tv = 20C
expansion with "+" and contraction with
"".
2. The greater length change is applicable for determining the length of the
flexible section.

Determining the Length of the


Flexible Section (a)
(Example 2)
The values required to determine the
length of the flexible a section are:
The maximum length change L, in
comparison with the zero position during
installation, (which can be either an
expansion or a contraction), and the
pipe diameter d.
If values a and d are known, the extent
of the maximum length change L to be
compensated can be taken from table 1
for specific lengths of flexible section a.
If values L and d are known, diagram 2
(on the following page) for optional
length changes shows the length of
flexible section a required.
L = 8 m (315 inches)
- I1

+ I2

F fixed point

5.17
6/7/02, 11:09 AM

In example 1, if the pipe to be installed is


d = 50 mm, the length of flexible section
required, i.e.1250 mm, can be taken
directly from diagram 2, based on the
maximum length change of L1, = 32.4
mm (1 .28 in.).

3. If, on the other hand, the flexible sec tion is pre-stressed to L/2, the
required length of flexible section is
reduced to approx. 1500 mm (59 in.).
The length change, starting from the
zero position, then amounts to L/2
=97.5/2 (3.84/2) = 48.75 mm
(1 .92 in.).

-L=LT1= 8.270.15=32.4 mm
= 31527(.00015) = 1.28 in.

Installation Hints
The length changes in pipework sections
should be clearly controlled by the
arrangement of fixed brackets. It is
possible to distribute the length changes
in pipework sections by suitable positioning of fixed brackets (see adjoining
examples).

In special cases, particularly at high


working temperatures, pre-stressing of a
flexible section improves the appearance of the pipeline in service, as the
flexible section is less strongly
deflected.
L

L
F

If it is not possible to include a flexible


section at a change of direction or
branch, or if extensive length changes
must be taken up in straight sections of
pipework, expansion loops may also be
installed. In this case the length change
is distributed over two flexible sections.
For an expansion loop, (taking example
1), the length change of 32.4 mm (1 .28
in.) would require a flexible section
length of a = 830 mm (32.68 in.). A
single flexible section on the other hand,
would need to be 1250 mm (49.21 in.) in
length.

In particularly difficult cases, where the


length changes are large and acting in
one direction only, it is also possible to
pre-stress the flexible section during
installation, in order to reduce the length
of a. This procedure is illustrated in the
following example:
Installation conditions:
L = 10 m (394 in.)
d = 50 mm (1-1/2 in.)

The Incorporation of
Compensators (Expansion
joints)
Due to the low modulus of elasticity of
PP, the reaction force of a plastic pipe
when subjected to variations in temperature is slight in comparison with metals.
The normal expansion joints intended for
metal pipes are, therefore, as a rule
unsuitable, due to their high resistance.
For this reason, only easily functioned
expansion joints may be incorporated in
plastic pipework, i.e. those with a low
resistance. In this respect the following
types may be considered: rubber
expansion joints, PTFE corrugated
expansion joints, or if chosen suitably,
metal multi-disc expansion joints.

The Incorporation of Valves


Valves should be mounted as direct as
possible, i.e. they should be formed as
fixed points. The actuating force is thus
transmitted directly, and not through the
pipeline. The length changes, starting
from the valve, are to be controlled as
described previously.
For safe mounting of plastic valves,
George Fischer valve brackets or
George Fischer valves equipped for
direct mounting are especially suitable.

When fitting an expansion joint, the pipe


must be regulated with fixed points so as
to ensure perfect functioning under
working conditions. The installation
temperature is used as the basis for this.
In pipe sections with expansion joints the
pipe bracket spacing given in the
section on support spacing may on no
account be exceeded. Where expansion
joints are incorporated in vertical pipe
runs the pipe bracket spacing given for
horizontal pipelines is applicable.

The Installation of Pipework


under Plaster or
Embedded in Concrete
Padded Pipework
Where pipework installed under plaster
or embedded in concrete changes
direction or branches off, the flexible
section under consideration must be
padded along the length a, which is
based on the calculated length change.
The accompanying tees or elbows must,
of course, also be included in the
padding. Only flexible materials, such
as glass wool, mineral wool, foam
plastic or similar may be used for
padding.

Pipe bracket support centers and fixation of plastic pipelines


General
PP pipelines need to be supported at specific intervals, depending upon the material, the average pipe wall temperature,
the specific gravity of the medium, and the
diameter and wall thickness of the pipe.
The determination of the pipe support centers has been based on the permissible

amount of deflection of the pipe between


two brackets. The pipe bracket centers
given in Table 1 are calculated on the basis
of a permissible deflection of max. 0.25
cm (0.01 inch) between two brackets.

as for gases

Installation of closely spaced pipe


brackets
A continuous support may be more
advantageous and economical than
pipe brackets for small diameter horizontal pipework, especially in a higher
temperature range. Installation in a Vor "U"-shaped support made of metal or
heat-resistant plastic material has
proven satisfactory.

Pipe bracket requirements


When mounted, the inside diameter of
the bracket must be greater than the
outside diameter of the pipe, in order to
allow length changes of the pipe at the
specified points. The inside edges of the
pipe bracket must be formed in such a
way that no damage to the pipe surface
is possible. George Fischer pipe brackets meet these requirements. They are
made of plastic and may be used under
rugged working conditions and also in
areas where the pipework is subjected
to the external influence of aggressive
atmospheres or media. George Fischer
pipe brackets are suitable for PVC,
CPVC, PE, PP and PVDF pipes.
Installation examples using George
Fischer pipe brackets
Short center to center distances due to
small overall dimensions of the
George Fischer pipe bracket and
the George Fischer shell coupling .

Sliding or hanger type brackets permit


movement of the pipeline in various
directions. A sliding block attached to
the base of the pipe bracket, when on a
flat supporting surface, allows movement
as required. When the pipe run changes
direction, sliding or hanger type brackets are necessary at given points in
order to maintain free movement of the
pipe.

Arrangement of fixed brackets


If the pipe bracket is positioned directly
beside a fitting, the length change of the
pipeline is limited to one direction only
(one-sided fixed point).
If it is, as in most cases, necessary to
control the length change of the pipeline
in both directions, the pipe bracket must
be positioned between two fittings. The
pipe bracket must be robust and firmly
mounted in order to take up the force
arising from the length change in the
pipeline. Hanger type brackets are not
suitable as fixed points.

Arrangement of loose brackets


Axial movement of the pipeline must not
be impeded by fittings positioned next
to the pipe bracket or by any other
change in the pipe diameter.

Goal of the IR Plus Fusion Training

To determine the integrity


of IR fusions
The envirnonmental influence

IR-Fusion Technology

Understanding materials and


the fusion parameters
GF Piping Systems

88

Material Handling
To Avoid Pipe Damage and Ovaling:

Always store material in a safe, stable enviroment away from direct sunlight.
Avoid dropping or scratching pipe when handling
High purity products should remain in protective bags until the material is in
a clean enviroment
Pipe should not be stacked higher than 3 feet

GF Piping Systems

89

GF Product Size Definition


All GF products are listed in mm.
All product sizes are based on its O.D. (Outside Diameter - Shown as d)
Inside Diameter (I.D.) = O.D. 2x Wall Thickness (Shown as e).
Closest inch size to GF products:

20mm =
25mm =
32mm = 1
40mm = 1
50mm = 1
63mm = 2
75mm = 2
90mm = 3
110mm = 4
160mm = 6
200mm = 8
225mm = 9
250mm = 10
315mm = 12

GF Pressure Rating Definitions


Two standards for measuring nominal pressure:

Bar = Newton per Square Meter = 1 N/m


PSI = Pounds per Square Inch = 1 lb/in

(European standard used by GF)


(US standard)

Equivalent pressure ratings:

1 Bar = 14.51 PSI


10 Bar = 145 PSI

6 Bar = 87 PSI
16 Bar = 232 PSI

SYGEF PVDF pipe and fittings are manufactured to:

20mm (1/2) though 110mm (4) to 16 Bar (232 PSI)


90mm (3) through 225mm (9) to 10 Bar (150 PSI)

PROGEF Natural pipe and fittings are manufactured to:

20mm (1/2) though 63mm (2) to 10 Bar (150 PSI)


75mm (2-1/2) through 110mm (4) to 6 Bar (90 PSI)

PROGEF Standard pipe and fittings are manufactured to 10 Bar only.


Materials with Different Pressure Ratings Can Not Be Fused Together!
Example: PN 10 PVDF Can Not Be Fused to PN 16 PVDF

IR Plus Fusion Conditions


Ambient temperature must be between 41F (5C) and 104F (40C).

Clamping and Supporting


There are two ways of clamping plastic pipe:
Fixed or anchored so pipe cannot move.
Loose or snug allowing pipe to move with expansion and contraction.
Install loose or snug clamps everywhere except:
Pumps
Tanks
Vertical Risers
Fixed clamp
Expansion Joints
Loose clamp
Never allow plastic on metal contact!
Always use proper cushion strips between the pipe and the clamp.

DVS 2210 and GF documentation


- Use loose clamps whenever possible.
- Fixed clamps only when engineering requires.
GF Piping Systems

139

Clamping and Supporting


A continuous support should be used whenever:

Spacing of supports are so close they are no longer practical.


Any high temperature application.
Overhead structural obstruction that does not permit hangers.

Methods of continuous support:

Angle Iron
Channel
Tray
Within another pipe

No sharp edges allowed


Always support valves independent from the pipe.

GF diaphragm and ball valves have mounting holes for ease of installation.

GF Piping Systems

140

Pressure Testing of Plastic Piping Systems


Preparation for the Test, Check That:

System conforms with installation drawing.


Every mechanical connection is checked for proper torquing.
For example: Unions are installed per manufacture recommedations,
Verify bolt torque on all diaphragm valves.
Pipe, valves, and fittings are correctly supported and fixed.
System is filled with liquid (water) and all air is removed through high point
vents. Compressed gas is not allowed!

Pressure Test Suggestion:


Test system to 150% of operational pressure but do not exceed the lowest
rated component. See the next slide for detailed information.

Pressure Loss Due to Elastic Expansion:


It is normal to experience a pressure loss due to elastic expansion
generated from the internal pressure and external temperature changes.
In the event of pressure loss, walk the system and look for water on the
ground to determine if there is a leak.

GF Piping Systems

141

Pressure Test Procedure


Pressure Test Procedure of all Georg Fischer Thermoplastic Piping Systems
The following is a general test procedure for Georg Fischer plastic piping. It applies to most applications.
Certain applications may require additional consideration. For further questions regarding your application,
please contact a Georg Fischer representative.
1. All piping systems should be pressure tested prior to being put into operational service.
2. All pressure tests should be conducted in accordance with the appropriate building, plumbing, mechanical,
and safety codes for the area where the piping is being installed.
3. When testing plastic piping systems, all tests should be conducted hydrostatically and should not exceed
the pressure rating of the lowest rated component in the piping system (often a valve). Test the system
at 150% of the designed operational pressure. i.e.: If the system is designed to operate at 80 PSI, then
the test will be done at 120 PSI.
4. When hydrostatic pressure is introduced to the system, it should be done gradually through a low point in
the piping system with care taken to eliminate any entrapped air by bleeding at high points within the
system. This should be done in four stages, waiting ten minutes at each stage (adding the total
desired pressure at each stage).
5. Allow one hour for system to stabilize after reaching desired pressure. After the hour, in case of pressure
drop, increase pressure back to desired amount and hold for 30 minutes. If pressure drops by more
than 6%, check system for leaks.
Note: If ambient temperature changes by more than 10F during the test, a retest may be necessary.

Do not test with gases

GF Piping Systems

142

Service and Preventative Maintenance


1. Clean the bottom inlet piece of the heater with a stainless steel brush
in case melted plastic builts up. (See example).
2. If shavings stick to ceramic coated heater, leave them alone.
Shavings will burn off themselves.

Equivalent pressure ratings:

1 Bar = 14.51 PSI


10 Bar = 145 PSI

6 Bar = 87 PSI
16 Bar = 232 PSI

SYGEF PVDF pipe and fittings are manufactured to:

20mm (1/2) though 110mm (4) to 16 Bar (232 PSI)


90mm (3) through 225mm (9) to 10 Bar (150 PSI)

PROGEF Natural pipe and fittings are manufactured to:

20mm (1/2) though 63mm (2) to 10 Bar (150 PSI)

Clamping and Supporting


There are two ways of clamping plastic pipe:
Fixed or anchored so pipe cannot move.
Loose or snug allowing pipe to move with expansion and contraction.
Install loose or snug clamps everywhere except:
Pumps
Tanks
Vertical Risers
Fixed clamp
Expansion Joints
Loose clamp
Never allow plastic on metal contact!
Always use proper cushion strips between the pipe and the clamp.

DVS 2210 and GF documentation


- Use loose clamps whenever possible.
- Fixed clamps only when engineering requires.
GF Piping Systems

202

Clamping and Supporting


A continuous support should be used whenever:

Spacing of supports are so close they are no longer practical.


Any high temperature application.
Overhead structural obstruction that does not permit hangers.

Methods of continuous support:

Angle Iron
Channel
Tray
Within another pipe

No sharp edges allowed


Always support valves independent from the pipe.

GF diaphragm and ball valves have mounting holes for ease of installation.

GF Piping Systems

203

Pressure Testing of Plastic Piping Systems


Preparation for the Test, Check That:

System conforms with installation drawing.


Every mechanical connection is checked for proper torquing.
For example: Unions are installed per manufacture recommedations,
Verify bolt torque on all diaphragm valves.
Pipe, valves, and fittings are correctly supported and fixed.
System is filled with liquid (water) and all air is removed through high point
vents. Compressed gas is not allowed!

Pressure Test Suggestion:


Test system to 150% of operational pressure but do not exceed the lowest
rated component. See the next slide for detailed information.

Pressure Loss Due to Elastic Expansion:


It is normal to experience a pressure loss due to elastic expansion
generated from the internal pressure and external temperature changes.
In the event of pressure loss, walk the system and look for water on the
ground to determine if there is a leak.

GF Piping Systems

204

Pressure Test Procedure


Pressure Test Procedure of all Georg Fischer Thermoplastic Piping Systems
The following is a general test procedure for Georg Fischer plastic piping. It applies to most applications.
Certain applications may require additional consideration. For further questions regarding your application,
please contact a Georg Fischer representative.
1. All piping systems should be pressure tested prior to being put into operational service.
2. All pressure tests should be conducted in accordance with the appropriate building, plumbing, mechanical,
and safety codes for the area where the piping is being installed.
3. When testing plastic piping systems, all tests should be conducted hydrostatically and should not exceed
the pressure rating of the lowest rated component in the piping system (often a valve). Test the system
at 150% of the designed operational pressure. i.e.: If the system is designed to operate at 80 PSI, then
the test will be done at 120 PSI.
4. When hydrostatic pressure is introduced to the system, it should be done gradually through a low point in
the piping system with care taken to eliminate any entrapped air by bleeding at high points within the
system. This should be done in four stages, waiting ten minutes at each stage (adding the total
desired pressure at each stage).
5. Allow one hour for system to stabilize after reaching desired pressure. After the hour, in case of pressure
drop, increase pressure back to desired amount and hold for 30 minutes. If pressure drops by more
than 6%, check system for leaks.
Note: If ambient temperature changes by more than 10F during the test, a retest may be necessary.

Do not test with gases

Pipe and Fitting Handling


To Avoid Pipe Damage and Ovaling:

Always store material in a safe, stable enviroment away from direct sunlight.
Avoid dropping or scratching pipe when handling
High purity products should remain in protective bags until the material is in
a clean enviroment
Pipe should not be stacked higher than 3 feet

GF Pressure Rating Definitions


Two standards for measuring nominal pressure:

Bar = Newton per Square Meter = 1 N/m


PSI = Pounds per Square Inch = 1 lb/in

(European standard used by GF)


(US standard)

Equivalent pressure ratings:

1 Bar = 14.51 PSI


10 Bar = 145 PSI

6 Bar = 87 PSI
16 Bar = 232 PSI

SYGEF PVDF pipe and fittings are manufactured to:

20mm (1/2) though 110mm (4) to 16 Bar (232 PSI)


90mm (3) through 225mm (9) to 10 Bar (150 PSI)

PROGEF Natural pipe and fittings are manufactured to:

20mm (1/2) though 63mm (2) to 10 Bar (150 PSI)


75mm (2-1/2) through 110mm (4) to 6 Bar (90 PSI)

PROGEF Standard pipe and fittings are manufactured to 10 Bar only.

Clamping and Supporting


There are two ways of clamping plastic pipe:
Fixed or anchored so pipe cannot move.
Loose or snug allowing pipe to move with expansion and contraction.
Install loose or snug clamps everywhere except:
Pumps
Tanks
Vertical Risers
Fixed clamp
Expansion Joints
Loose clamp
Never allow plastic on metal contact!
Always use proper cushion strips between the pipe and the clamp.

DVS 2210 and GF documentation


- Use loose clamps whenever possible.
- Fixed clamps only when engineering requires.
GF Piping Systems

232

Clamping and Supporting


A continuous support should be used whenever:

Spacing of supports are so close they are no longer practical.


Any high temperature application.
Overhead structural obstruction that does not permit hangers.

Methods of continuous support:

Angle Iron
Channel
Tray
Within another pipe

No sharp edges allowed


Always support valves independent from the pipe.

GF diaphragm and ball valves have mounting holes for ease of installation.

GF Piping Systems

233

Pressure Testing of Plastic Piping Systems


Preparation for the Test, Check That:

System conforms with installation drawing.


Every mechanical connection is checked for proper torquing.
For example: Unions are installed per manufacture recommedations,
Verify bolt torque on all diaphragm valves.
Pipe, valves, and fittings are correctly supported and fixed.
System is filled with liquid (water) and all air is removed through high point
vents. Compressed gas is not allowed!

Pressure Test Suggestion:


Test system to 150% of operational pressure but do not exceed the lowest
rated component. See the next slide for detailed information.

Pressure Loss Due to Elastic Expansion:


It is normal to experience a pressure loss due to elastic expansion
generated from the internal pressure and external temperature changes.
In the event of pressure loss, walk the system and look for water on the
ground to determine if there is a leak.

GF Piping Systems

234

Pressure Test Procedure


Pressure Test Procedure of all Georg Fischer Thermoplastic Piping Systems
The following is a general test procedure for Georg Fischer plastic piping. It applies to most applications.
Certain applications may require additional consideration. For further questions regarding your application,
please contact a Georg Fischer representative.
1. All piping systems should be pressure tested prior to being put into operational service.
2. All pressure tests should be conducted in accordance with the appropriate building, plumbing, mechanical,
and safety codes for the area where the piping is being installed.
3. When testing plastic piping systems, all tests should be conducted hydrostatically and should not exceed
the pressure rating of the lowest rated component in the piping system (often a valve). Test the system
at 150% of the designed operational pressure. i.e.: If the system is designed to operate at 80 PSI, then
the test will be done at 120 PSI.
4. When hydrostatic pressure is introduced to the system, it should be done gradually through a low point in
the piping system with care taken to eliminate any entrapped air by bleeding at high points within the
system. This should be done in four stages, waiting ten minutes at each stage (adding the total
desired pressure at each stage).
5. Allow one hour for system to stabilize after reaching desired pressure. After the hour, in case of pressure
drop, increase pressure back to desired amount and hold for 30 minutes. If pressure drops by more
than 6%, check system for leaks.
Note: If ambient temperature changes by more than 10F during the test, a retest may be necessary.

Do not test with gases

Flange Seals
A seal must be used between the flange adapter faces in
order to ensure a good seal. The seal can be a flat gasket
or gasket with profile. Select the seal material based on
the chemical resistance requirements of your system.
For applications with maximum 90 PSI (6 Bar), working
pressures the flat gaskets can be used. Steel-reinforced

Tightening the Bolts


Plastic flanges require gradual, even bolt tightening.

ANSI B16.5:

Center the gasket between the flange adapter faces, with


the bolt holes at the outer edge of the gasket. A gasket cut
to the specified dimensions (see Table 1) should come just
to the inner edge of the flange adapter face near the flow
path, or overlap the edge slightly.

Inserting the Bolts


If using copper-graphite antiseize lubricant as
recommended, apply the lubricant evenly with a brush
directly to the bolt threads, and to the nut if desired. Cover
the bolt from its tip to the maximum extent to which the nut
will be threaded.

** Assumes the use of zinc- or cadmium-plated bolt, nut, or both.
Never use unlubricated, uncoated bolts and nuts with flanges, as
high friction and seizing lead to unpredictable torque and a high
incidence of cracking and poor sealing.

Note that the torques listed in Tables 5 and 6 are for flange

of connections, such as between a flange and a butterfly
valve, where the full face of the flange is not in contact with

misaligned system together.

Sealing Mechanism
GF union connections use an o-ring as the sealing
mechanism which is highly effective under relatively low
tightening force.

Dirt and Debris


An often overlooked issue is the presence of dirt and debris
on the o-ring or sealing surface. This will prevent proper
o-ring sealing; if it is present on the nut or body threads, it
will clog the threads and prevent proper tightening.

Installation
Understand and carefully follow these installation steps
in order to ensure a seal that is sufficient to guard against
leaks while avoiding excessive forces that can damage the
union nut.

246

Never use the union nuts to draw together any


gaps between the mating faces of the components
or to correct any system misalignment.

Hand-Tightening (All Sizes) (see Table 1)

Introduction
NPT threaded connections are not recommended for high
pressure systems or those greater than two inches. They
also should be avoided in systems where leaks would be
dangerous or costly.
When properly installed, threaded connections offer the
benefit of an easy and inexpensive transition to metal
systems. They can also be used for joining plastic where
the installation is expected to be modified or moved later.
