What is a Megalug fitting?

What is a Megalug fitting?

The Series 1100 MEGALUG® Mechanical Joint Restraints effectively and economically restrain Ductile Iron Pipe (DIP) to mechanical joints above or below ground, for practically any application including valves, hydrants, and pipe.

Does HDPE pipe require thrust blocks?

Are thrust blocks required with buried HDPE pipe? No. When transitioning from an HDPE pipeline into a DI or PVC pipeline with unrestrained gasket joints, it is necessary to provide restraint.

How do you connect PVC to HDPE pipe?

Slide the HDPE pipe over the end of the PVC pipe. It is important that the inside diameter (ID) of the HDPE pipe be as close to the outside diameter (OD) of the PVC pipe as possible. This creates a butt fusion joint between the two pipes.

What is a Megaflange?

Source: EBAA Iron. The Series 2100 MEGAFLANGE Restrained Flange Adapter is a field-adaptable wedge style restrained flanging system. It has a restraint ring and a gasket ring to give the maximum amount of flexibility during and after installation.

How deep can you bury HDPE pipe?

In lieu of calculations, AWWA states that for an embedment soil with an E’of 1000 psi and no surface water, HDPE pipes with DR’s ranging from 7.3 to 21 can be safely buried from a depth of 2 ft to 25 ft where no traffic load is present and from 3 ft to 25 ft where H20 live load is present.

Why is HDPE used in pipes?

Using HDPE Pipe and Fittings High-density polyethylene pipe is strong, durable, flexible and lightweight. When fused together, HDPE offers a zero leak rate due to the seamless nature of the pipe system.

Can HDPE be glued?

HDPE in particular used to be a challenge due to its high abrasion resistance. Its slick, hard surface makes it all but impossible for glues or epoxy’s, that work by being ‘sticky’, to stick.

Can I use PVC cement on HDPE?

HDPE is common and cost effective conduit often used in directional boring. But PVC cement will not stick to HDPE at all. Mechanical coupling are available to compress or thread PVC to HDPE. The HDPE is inserted and glued once the coupling has been threaded on the metal.

What is flange Adaptor?

The flange adaptor is the most basic type of dismantling joint. On one side, it has a flange connection in accordance with the required flange standard, on the other an insertion socket for the pipe. A variety of standard pipe types can be connected. flange adaptors are available for a variety of pipe types.

What is restrained flange adapter?

The Romac RFCA is the simple way to connect and restrain flanged fittings, valves, meters and other equipment to plain end pipe. The RFCA provides flexibility before and after installation, replacing costly concrete thrust blocks, corrodible steel tie-rods and clamps.
