How to arrange and lay PEX pipes

PEX pipe is a very commonly used pipe material at present. Its advantages are high-temperature resistance, pressure resistance, not easy aging, and easy installation. The following introduces the layout and laying precautions of PEX pipelines.IFAN Facebook,IFAN factory has 30+ years manufacture experience supporting color /size customization support Free Samples.

Precautions for layout

The use requirements of the pipeline must be clarified first, and different pipe diameters and connection methods should be selected according to different requirements to ensure the normal operation of the pipeline.

Detailed design should be carried out before the pipeline layout. Factors such as the length of the pipeline, the hardness of the material, the diameter of the pipeline, and the shape of the pipeline should be considered in the design to avoid problems such as water leakage and air leakage of the pipeline.

When arranging, it should ensure that the active area is not hindered, and the pipeline should be fixed to ensure firmness and stability of the pipeline.

Avoid intersecting with other pipelines, and arrange them in isolation from electric wires and data lines to avoid interference.

The fixed place for use should be fixed firmly to facilitate future maintenance operations.

Precautions for laying

The pipeline should be clean, without dust, oil, or other impurities, to ensure cleanliness.

During the pipeline laying process, it is necessary to ensure that the axis height of the pipeline is consistent with the height of the ground and reduce the curvature of the pipeline to avoid insufficient pipeline compressive capacity, pipeline rupture, and water leakage.

When materials such as elbows and T-joints appear, non-destructive testing is required to ensure the sealing and stability of the pipeline.

Before the completion of the pipeline laying, it is necessary to conduct a system test and repair the problems in time to ensure the normal operation of the pipeline.

The curvature of the pipeline should be minimized when laying, and the curvature should be controlled within 5 diameters within the distance of the pipeline support.

After the pipeline is laid, a mechanical test is required to check whether there are problems such as looseness or air leakage, so as to avoid future exposure to problems that will affect safety.

All in all, during the layout and laying of PEX pipelines, it is necessary to pay special attention to the connection mode of the pipelines, the height of the axis, and the height of the ground, the curvature of the pipelines is controlled within 5 diameters, and the stability and sealing of the pipelines need to be checked to ensure that the pipelines are of normal operation.
