Expansion Joint Design Basics

Expansion joints that are installed within ten pipe diameters downstream of elbows, tees, valves or cyclonic devices should be considered to be subject to flow turbulence. The actual flow velocity should be multiplied by 4 to determine if a liner is required per the above guidelines.

HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE PIPE HDPE

HDPE has a high coefficient of thermal expansion and contraction along with a low modulus of elasticity. This sensitivity to pressure and temperature causes HDPE to expand and contract more than traditional water and sewer piping materials. The potential pipe expansion or contraction must be considered when assembling bolt on fittings.
