Westwood Pipelines are able to provide polyethylene service pipes for both water and gas. Our medium density PE80 service pipes offer superb resistance to cracks, with long-term benefits such as freedom from corrosion. They also bring significant advantages over traditional materials such as steel and ductile iron with their flexibility, making it far easier to transport them with little damage to their exterior. Although lightweight, transportation of PE pipes should be taken with due care to minimise any deformation caused in the process.
Service Pipe PE80
The medium density PE80 blue service pipe is for the transportation of safe, clean potable water below ground. Westwood Pipelines supplies a range of sizes for your needs – from 20mm to 63mm – with a variety of fittings available, such as standard and reduction coupling, 90˚ Elbows and Tees. The service pipes can either be provided in straight lengths or coils up to 150m.
Similar to the water pipes we provide, our medium density yellow service pipes come in PE80 for the safe transportation of natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas below ground. Westwood Pipelines are able to supply in sizes 20mm to 63mm and can provide a range of fittings to suit your needs, including standard and reduction couplings, 90˚ Elbows, 90˚ Tees and End Caps. All service pipes can be provided in coils of up to 100m.
The installation for service pipes for both water and gas must be carried out safely and efficiently, according to BS EN12201. Conventional open cut trenching is used for the installation of pipes below ground, with UK practice determining that they should be laid with at least 250mm on either side of the pipe width for sidefill. While polyethylene pipes can be laid directly onto the trimmed trench bottom where the soil is uniform and free from large obstacles, it is advised that a minimum of 100mm bed of gravel or coarse sand is used to keep it compact and free from any exterior damage once installed.
