Working with polypropylene pipes - how to avoid trouble ?

Why work is beneficial to them?

Polypropylene Pipes - is the latest generation of plastic materials.According to statistics, the use of polypropylene pipes is constantly increasing in the heating and plumbing sectors.This increase is due to their high technical performance and long life.Today, it is the best alternative to metal.To improve the efficiency of the pipe made from this material with different thicknesses calculated for different pressure levels.This allows you to avoid overspending of the material in their production and provides a guarantee of reliable work in various conditions.

Note!These tubes have an ideal combination of reliability, durability, and economic benefits.

Modern systems for household and technical use are often mounted using polypropylene pipes.Among their advantages can be noted a great opposition to high temperatures, the ability of many years does not change its shape and absolute corrosion resistance.All the pipes are exposed to highly corrosive environments variety, including acids and alkalis.Due to its properties, polypropylene can leak, that will not change their taste.It is because of this feature, these tubes are often used as a water pipe.

Working with polypropylene pipes in

home for self-assembly it is necessary to know how to work with polypropylene pipes.Installation - a fairly simple and quick process.The material is light, does not need to be painted, it is not necessary to use a fire risk equipment for welding, which is much easier to work with him.Assemble special thermal unit, which are connected and all the plastic parts.This process does not require the possession of special skills and abilities.The base weld is melted, which is performed by heating the superposed parts.Such welding is considered to be the most effective.

Stages of work:

  • pipe is cut at right angles using special scissors

Note!The outer end of the pipe it is recommended to mow at an angle of 45 degrees.

  • take notes about the depth of welding.This area should be thoroughly cleaned of dirt and degrease;
  • welding device is heated to 260 degrees;
  • on a heated nozzle is put on the fitting and the pipe is inserted to the marked level;
  • melting time is necessary to calculate the tables;
  • After the required heating parts are removed and connected;
  • Then they are fixed to cool.

notes, without which all the work will come to nothing

The use of polypropylene pipes is very wide and has virtually no restrictions.But for the system to serve a long time, the following rules when installing should be observed:

  • At temperatures below zero degrees Celsius pipeline installation is not recommended;
  • transported and stored pipes and fittings, they should be protected from damage;
  • Cook metal products in the vicinity of the polypropylene compounds is strictly prohibited.

When performing welding work also has important rules.Firstly, before putting on a Teflon nozzle of the apparatus is required to thoroughly clean.Secondly, if the pipe has a reinforcement of, then its marking and cutting of reinforcement layer must be removed.Third, if loose fitting sits on the nozzle, it should be culled because it will not provide the desired compound.Fourth, the parts are placed on each other slowly in a circular motion.

Important! only if all the above rules will guarantee that the compound will be reliable.
