  • How to do Leak Test at Pipelines?

    In our previous article we have outlined the Leak Test for sewer, storm, drain pipelines by “Water Filling through Manhole” method. In this article we would like to explain the “Water Filling through Plug” method and explain its two different applications. Both applications are in accordance with the EN 1610 Standard ...

  • Anomaly pre-localization in distribution–transmission mains by pump trip: preliminary field tests in the Milan pipe system

    In this paper, the reliability of transients due to pump trip as a powerful tool for the pre-localization of anomalies in real pipe systems is tested. The examined pipe system is part of the one supplying the city of Milan, Italy and is managed by Metropolitana Milanese SpA (MM). The characteristics of such a system can be considered as intermediate between those of classical transmission mains ...

  • Enviro - Septic® Systems Achieve Even Distribution without Pressure Dosing

    Abstract: Enviro-Septic Systems do not use pressure distribution. Pumps are used only if necessary to gain elevation to the treatment field. Pressure distribution has the potential to disrupt the settling of solids within the pipe. Testing has confirmed that Enviro-Septic^ achieves even distribution throughout the system naturally, through the development of a controlled bacterial treatment layer ...

  • Pipe Stopper Testing Mistakes

    In order to use a smooth flowing pipeline, we have to carry out a few tests with pipe stopper (a.k.a. pipe plug) as per EN 1610. By applying these tests, we can get results about leakages of the pipeline, if any. Or we can see how much pressure the line is holding. HOW CAN WE DO THESE TESTS? In our previous articles we have explained the Leak Test as per EN 1610 for sewer, ...

  • Ability of Preissmann slot scheme to simulate smooth pressurisation transient in sewers

    Urban drainage networks are generally designed to operate in a free-surface flow condition. However, as a consequence of heavy rainfall events or network malfunctions, the filling of sewers (pressurisation) and network overflow may occur. Several modelling software products are commonly used to simulate floods in drainage networks, and their results are usually thought to be reliable and robust. ...

  • An Introduction to Pipe Plugs

    Pipe Plugs – sometimes called Pipe Stoppers, Balloons, Cushions, Bungs or Balls – are devices that can be inserted into a pipe, inflated with air and thereby seal the pipe for repairs, inspection and/or leak testing.Plugs are usually constructed of vulcanized rubber reinforced with fiber cords. They have an inflation point for connecting to a source of pressurized air and attachments for moving ...

  • Sewer-Main Collection Pipe Joint Infiltration Testing and Life Cycle Cost Analysis

    ABSTRACTResearch ProjectsMajor members of the sewer-main pipe manufacturing industry and the University of Houston have completed and published the results of the following two research projects: The Sewer-Main Collection Pipe Joint Infiltration Testing research project that measured the water infiltration rate of water-tight designed 30-inch pipe joints. The joint tightness testing was ...

  • Wireless Transmission Pipe Ultrasonic Flaw Detector

    The system is suitable for the automatic detection of various internal and external defects of steel pipes. The principle of ultrasonic flaw detection is that after the ultrasonic wave is coupled into the steel pipe through water, the incident propagation will cause ultrasonic reflection when there is a defect in the pipe. The ultrasonic instrument will alarm the ultrasonic reflected signal after ...

  • Model and experimental analysis of the dynamic behaviour of air conditioning plant pipelines

    This paper presents a model to describe the transmission of vibrations through the pipelines of automotive air conditioning plants. It is known that vibration propagating from the compressor to the other system components can affect both acoustical and structural behaviour. In this study a frequency domain description is purposed, using a transfer matrix formulation to study the pipe dynamics. ...

  • Trash removal methods for improved mechanical emptying of pit latrines using a screw auger

    Trash in pit latrines is one of the largest challenges facing pit emptying technologies, including the powered auger (the Excrevator), developed for improved emptying in lower- and lower-middle income countries. This study focused on two trash removal methods in conjunction with pit emptying by the Excrevator: (1) simultaneous removal of trash with sludge and (2) manual trash ...

  • Difference between Seamless and Welded Steel Pipes and Tubes

    Pipes are usually produced by two distinct methods which are a welded pipe or a seamless pipe. In both methods, raw material is first cast into ingots. It is then made into a pipe by stretching the steel out into a seamless tube or forcing the edges together and sealing them with a weld.The following are the main differences between seamless and welded ...

  • Completing Condition Assessments using In-pipe GPR as Pipe Penetrating Radar

    Abstract This paper describes the development of Pipe Penetrating Radar (PPR), the underground in-pipe application of GPR, a non-destructive testing method that can detect defects and cavities within and outside mainline diameter (>18 in / 450mm) non-metallic (concrete, PVC, HDPE, etc.) underground pipes. The method uses two or more high frequency GPR antennae carried by a robot into ...

  • Predicting the head-leakage slope of cracks in pipes subject to elastic deformations

    Pressure has a major impact on the rate of leakage from leak openings in pipes and studies have shown that the leakage exponents in networks can be substantially larger than the theoretical orifice exponent of 0.5. The most important reason for this behaviour is that leak areas are not fixed, but increase as a function of pressure. In this study, finite element analysis was used to investigate ...
