Today Fiberglass Pipe Manufacturer will tell you what aspects of glass fiber pipe should be paid attention to during construction.
1. Lifting problems.
Due to the low hardness of glass fiber pipes, flexible and wide slings or ropes should be used for the lifting ropes during loading and unloading. It is strictly forbidden to use steel wire ropes or iron chains to lift the pipes. Pipes can be lifted using one or two support points, but the pipes should be balanced in the air, and no slings (ropes) should be run through their ends to prevent damage to the socket. Slings (ropes) should be protected when hoisting other items, especially when lifting steel pipes with bevels. Do not run the slings (ropes) through both ends. This will easily cut the slings (ropes) and cause accidents.
2. Transportation pipeline problems.
It is strictly forbidden to bump during transportation. Different diameter pipes can be transported together, but the two pipes must be separated by straw bags or thick cardboard. When unloading, do not drag the small pipe directly from the car. Pipes are stacked in layers, with brackets between each layer.
3. Storage issues.
Fiberglass Pipe is a flexible composite material. The yard of the yard should be flat. There should be no sharp stones in the yard and no rolling. It should not be exposed to sunlight for a long time.
4. Pipeline installation.
First, the pipe laying work should be carried out, that is, the standard fixed-length pipes and fittings are lined along the trenches that have been dug from the storage site. Sometimes in order to reduce the cost of secondary transportation, the method of simultaneous transportation and installation can also be used. The pipe laying work should follow: Place each pipe along the groove, and pay great attention to the direction of the socket of each pipe toward the opposite side of the design flow direction.
5. Pipe connection problems.
Sealing socket socket connection. Generally, the connection should be made against the direction of the water flow. Before the connection, a groove should be dug on the foundation corresponding to the socket location. After socket installation, fill with sand. When connecting, check the socket and socket again, and evenly coat the inner surface of the socket with a lubricant (non-petroleum products, such as animal and vegetable oil), and then put two "O" rubber rings in the grooves of the socket, And apply lubricant. Appropriate mechanical auxiliary equipment should be used when connecting pipes. For large-diameter pipes, lift the pipe off the ground at the socket end to reduce friction between the pipe and the ground. In order to prevent the installed pipes from being pulled out, two or three pipes are generally connected by pull code as a whole. For pipes with a diameter of less than 1.6m, excavators can usually be directly lifted, and sleepers must be placed between the bucket and the nozzle.
6. Butt-wrapped connection at the joint.
Due to the limitation of production and installation accuracy, the manufacturer usually sends someone to make the scene.
7. Pipeline loan problem.
For glass fiber pipelines, slow turning in the vertical and horizontal directions can be achieved by using the angle allowed between the socket and the socket, which is helpful for the development of its hydraulic characteristics. It can reduce the head loss and the number of pipe elbows. The permissible turning angle and geometric radius of the pipeline are determined by relevant codes. Borrowing angles should be considered before the trench is excavated. In actual construction, for vertical borrowing, the borrowing angles occupied by the ground settlement should also be considered Therefore, the actual borrowing radius should be larger than the calculated value.
The above are the precautions for fiberglass pipeline installation introduced by Fiberglass Septic Tank Supplier. Hope to help you.
