The HDSS® pipe is the newest addition to the U.S. Pipe product line. It was designed as a high pressure restrained pipe with added deflection. HDSS Pipe and Fittings can provide a true 350psi working pressure with a flexible restrained push-on joint for 20”- 36” ductile Iron pipe and fittings. The HDSS Restrained Joint has a working pressure rating that is variable depending upon the class of pipe it is used with. 30” and 36” HDSS provides up to 2.5° and 2.0° deflection respectively, and 20" and 24” provides up to 3.5° deflection to allow for alignment and settlement issues in buried applications. The simple robust design and added deflection make this the strongest joint on the market, and ideal for bridge piping, horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and pipe bursting applications.
To facilitate quick, easy and trouble free installation, ductile Iron locking segments are inserted through a single slot in the bell face and slid into position around the bell to provide a positive axial lock between the bell interior surface and a retainer weldment on the spigot end of the pipe. A rubber retainer installed between the locking segments completes the installation and insures the segments stay in place while the joint is extended to engage the restraint. The HDSS joint can be easily disassembled by reversing the installation procedure with no need of special tools or shims.
U.S. Pipe ductile iron was chosen to replace a problematic pipeline that was allowing sand intrusion. The 64" line with Protecto 401 will take care of the wastewater needs for the Columbia South Carolina area for decades to come.
The U.S. Pipe ductile iron pipe bridge crossing video is a technical resource video to educate engineers and contractors of the variables involved when planning a bridge crossing application. Proper planning and execution is critical to ensure the pipe installed on the bridge functions properly throughout the duration of it's installment. This video is for informational purposes only and is not to be used as a installation guideline. Contact U.S. Pipe engineers to get fully detailed information around your bridge crossing project.
U.S. Pipe TR XTREME is a seismic pipe that resists various seismic movements to ensure continued service despite soil movement. ERDIP (Earthquake resistant ductile iron pipe) was designed for soil movement as many areas are prone to seismic events. The strength and longevity of ductile iron pipe make it a perfect choice for seismic affected areas as the strength of the pipe and the design compensate for movement and sheer.
