  • Transfer of phthalates from c-polyvinyl chloride and cross-linked polyethylene pipe (PEX-b) into drinking water

    Several different materials have been used for production of domestic water pipes throughout history. In recent years, the use of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipe has increased dramatically, yet the potential for leaching of phthalates, which are endocrine disrupting compounds associated with adverse reproductive effects in humans, has not been examined. In this study, the potential of ...

  • Long-term study of migration of volatile organic compounds from cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipes and effects on drinking water quality

    The objectives of this study were to investigate migration of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) pipes used for drinking water produced by different production methods, and to evaluate their potential risk for human health and/or influence on aesthetic drinking water quality. The migration tests were carried out in accordance with EN-1420-1, and VOCs were ...

  • Time-Temperature Superposition in Mechanical Durability Testing of Polyethylene Geomembranes

    The mechanical durability of polyethylene geomembranes is considered in this technical note. Polyethylene plastic pipe research has shown that there are universal factors for shifting high-temperature failure (short time) data to low temperatures (long time). Data presented here indicate that these same shift factors may also apply to geomembranes. Crack growth rate studies are proposed as a ...

  • Evaluating the pressure-leakage behaviour of leaks in water pipes

    Much progress has been made over the last decade in understanding the behaviour of flow through leak openings with changes in water mains pressure. In particular it has been established that variations in leak areas with pressure is the main factor responsible for the range of leakage exponents observed in practice, and several numerical and experimental studies have investigated this ...

  • Experimental characterization of PVC-O pipes for transient modeling

    The increasing use of plastic materials has modified several aspects of design and management of water distribution systems. With reference to the numerical modeling of transients, the definition of a correct rheological model of the pipe material is receiving an increasing interest. In this paper the behavior of the molecularly oriented polyvinyl chloride (PVC-O) pipes during transients is ...
