GAS PIPELINES

Gas distribution is an important sector for high integrity products where the safe transport of gaseous fuels is of paramount importance.

Acu-Gas is the system of choice for below-ground natural and LP gas mains and distribution pipelines.

Acu-Tech has forged strong relationships with both gasfitters and gas utilities over many years. We offer support, training and advice on complete package solutions.

Key features and benefits:

  • Approved for below ground installations under AS 5601-2004: Gas Installations
  • Full yellow coating for clear identification
  • Electro or Butt fusion jointing method creates a completely homogenous joint which is stronger than the pipe itself.
  • Integrity and durability proven in the field by utilities Australia wide.
  • Flexibility of pipe allows cold bending to accommodate minor changes in direction, and also accommodates ground movement.
  • Manufactured to AS/NZS 4130 “Polyethylene – PE – pipes for pressure applications” and AS/NZS 4129 “Fittings for polyethylene (PE) pipes for pressure applications”
  • Acu-Gas is available in 20, 40, 63, 110,160 and 225mm diameters as standard stock items. Larger sizes made to order.
  • Coils of up to 100 metres are available in 20, 40, 63 and 110mm diameters, vastly reducing the amount of joints in a pipeline
  • The relatively light weight of Acu-Gas makes it easy to transport, handle and install, offering overall project savings.
  • Very high safety factor: According to AS5601-2004, operating limit is 200kPa, whereas the hydrostatic design pressure for Acu-Gas SDR11 pipe is 2000kPa (before safety factor).
  • Live main self-tapping electrofusion tapping tees fittings available for “hot tap-ins”
  • Gas flow through Acu-GasTM pipe can be stopped by using a “squeeze-off” tool, where interruption is required for emergency, repair or tee-in operations etc.
