JCM Industries manufactures a number of products which have proven to be very applicable to HDPE pipe . Working characteristics of POLYETHYLENE pipe require special attention to the repair, connection and tapping procedures performed in systems using this type of pipe .
4 JCM Industries products especially applicable to HDPE pipe include: REPAIR CLAMPS AND COUPLINGS. 101 - 102 Universal Clamp Couplings 171 - 172 Universal Clamp Coupling with Removeable Lug 131 - 132 All Stainless Steel Universal Clamp Couplings 161 - 162 Fabricated Lug Stainless Steel Repair Clamp 136 Heavy Duty All Stainless Steel Repair Clamp 201 Steel Couplings 210 Ductile Iron Couplings 241 - 242 Optimum Range Couplings 301 - 303 Flanged Coupling Adapters SERVICE SADDLES AND TAPPING SLEEVES. 412 - 422 Tapping Sleeves (6 size and larger, contact JCM for smaller sizes). 419 - 429 Tapping Sleeves with Mechanical Joint Outlet*.
5 452 - 464 Stainless Steel Tapping Sleeve with Outlet Seal Gasket 459 - 465 Stainless Steel Tapping Sleeve with Mechanical Joint Outlet*. 418 Fabricated Threaded Outlet Tapping Sleeve (1/2 - 4 Outlets). 438 Stainless Steel Threaded Outlet Tapping Sleeve 404 - 406 Service Saddle with Double Stainless Steel Straps (3/4 thru 2-1/2 outlets, 2 - 24 sizes). OTHER PRODUCTS. 610 - 621 Sur-Grip Restrainers 230 HDPE pipe Stiffeners Success in these products is largely due to the design criteria that took the working characteristics of HDPE. pipe into consideration. Design characteristics inherent to JCM clamps, couplings, tapping sleeves, saddles and other products are as follows: GASKETS - Tapping sleeve and service saddle gaskets should have wide cross section with enough volume to store compression energy.
6 Gaskets should be of a hardness which will flex with pipe pressure fluctuations. Outlet seals should have a mechanical sealing lip that utilizes line pressure to increase seal. Outlet gaskets should be externally and internally confined. TAPPING SLEEVE OR CLAMP BODY - Tapping sleeve or clamp coupling body should conform to the HDPE. pipe and support it and the branch (in cases of outlets). Width of sleeve should be such that it spreads the load to prevent point loading or deformation of the pipe . BOLTING - Bolts and bolting should be replaceable, self-aligning and heavy enough to properly load the gasket and assure an adequate safety factor.
7 *Licensed by PowerSeal Corporation Patent No. 6,227,234. 2. JCM INDUSTRIES, INC, General Application Information Fittings and Fabrications for high DENSITY POLYETHYLENE pipe JCM Products for repairing, connecting and tapping POLYETHYLENE pipe have been tested and evaluated for their suitability and design capability. In each case JCM products have performed satisfactorily in respect to their design application. Test criteria range from short-term for special applications to long-term 1000 hour evaluations with the most common applications. Temperature and pressure cycles are also incorporated to fully address the pipe characteristics and full range of occurrences.
8 Special monitoring equipment is utilized to produce accurate test data and for historical reference. high DENSITY POLYETHYLENE pipe (HDPE) has several unique characteristics which are taken into consideration in the following guidelines. The disregard of these guidelines and/or the installation instructions supplied with each fitting may cause unsatisfactory results and void the expressed product warranty. HDPE pipe considered for use must be manufactured to the recommendations set forth in the ANSI/AWWA. Standard C906 and complies with criteria in reference to size. HDPE has a high coefficient of thermal expansion and contraction along with a low modulus of elasticity.
9 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. HDPE will relax ( creep ) at lower stress levels than other piping materials. Due to these special characteristics, the following parameters should be adhered to when utilizing JCM products for HDPE (ANSI/AWWA C901, C906). HDPE and bolt-on fitting connections are vulnerable to forces experienced with expansion/contraction of the pipe and require special consideration. Restraint must be considered when joining plain end pipe to ensure against pipe pull out.
10 HDPE is manufactured with a smooth pipe wall surface resulting in a low coefficient of friction that can enable fittings to slide, shift, move, rotate and/or travel on the pipe after installation. JCM. products are limited in the tolerance of axial movement of the pipe . JCM products for HDPE are designed for underground pressurized fluid service and are pressure rated to match the pipe SDR pressure rating or with a maximum service rating of 150 PSI (Temperature 35o - 75o F/Maximum test pressure limited to rated pipe pressure or fitting , whichever is lower).
