HDPE Pipe Installation, Trench Preparation (Part 1)
Since its inception, corrugated high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe has become widely accepted as an innovative water conservation and drainage solution with several advantages over traditional pipe. This article aims to present the proper installation techniques for HDPE pipe, including trench preparation, pipe and fitting assembly, and backfill procedures.
Advantages of HDPE Pipe:
- Lightweight 20-foot lengths
- Wide range of diameters from 4 inches through 60 inches
- Convenient belen spigot joint for easy installation
- Annular corrugated exterior provides strength
- Smooth interior delivers superior hydraulics
- Excellent chemical and abrasion resistance for a long service life
- Trench must be wide enough to place and compact the backfill material on either side of the pipe.
- Minimum trench widths are the outside diameter plus 16 inches for pipes 15 inches and smaller and 1.5 times the outside diameter plus 12 inches for pipes 18 inches and larger.
- Quality of the trench foundation is crucial, and the trench bottom must provide uniform long-term support to the pipe and backfill material.
- Soft materials like muck or refuse and hard irregular materials like bedrock require additional excavation.
- Trench boxes are necessary in some projects to provide a safe work area in the trench.
- The sub-trench allows for the compacted backfill below the trench box to remain undisturbed.
Pipe and Fitting Assembly:
- Inspection is necessary to eliminate rock outcroppings and remove all loose rocks and debris that could damage the pipe system.
- Four to six inches of approved bedding material can be placed in the trench.
- The outer two-thirds of bedding must be compacted as required.
- Joint integrity and installation quality are likely to be compromised if assembly takes place with water in the trench.
HDPE pipe has established a new standard of engineering and application excellence, making it ideal for stormwater management applications. Proper installation techniques, including trench preparation, pipe and fitting assembly, and backfill procedures, are crucial to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of the HDPE pipe system. Always refer to the pocket installation guide for specific guidelines and installation questions.
HDPE Pipe Installation, Backfill Procedures (Part 3)
When it comes to installing HDPE pipe, choosing the right backfill material is crucial for ensuring the pipe's performance and longevity. In this article, we will discuss the different types of backfill materials that can be used and their compaction requirements.
Types of Backfill Materials:
1. Class 1 Backfill Material:
- Consists of angular crushed stone or volcanic Eve
- Minimum compaction requirements are met by dumping the material into the trench and knifing it under the pipe's hunch
2. Class 2 Backfill Material:
- Consists of gravel and gravel sand mixtures
- Compaction is required
- Refer to the pocket installation guide for further definition of Class 2 materials and maximum lift heights between compaction efforts
3. Class 3 Backfill Material:
- Consists of silty gravels or sands
- Compaction is required
- Refer to the pocket installation guide for further definition of Class 3 materials and maximum lift heights between compaction efforts
Note: Native soils not identified as Class 1, 2, or 3 materials are generally not suitable as initial backfill materials.
- Always knife the backfill material under the hunch of the pipe to prevent voids and ensure even placement of backfill material around the pipe.
- Dump the material directly on top of the pipe so it falls equally on each side of the pipe to prevent shifting during the backfill process.
- The most critical area of the backfill structure is the envelope surrounding the pipe system. This envelope includes the bedding, the hunch area, and the initial backfill area.
- Only approved backfill material should be used in the bedding, hunch, and initial backfill areas of the trench.
- Final backfill material can be alternative or native material with the approval of the designing engineer.
- Pipes systems through 48-inch diameters require a minimum 12 inches of cover above the pipe. 54 and 60-inch pipes systems require a minimum 24 inches of cover above the pipe.
- Additional minimum cover is required for areas receiving heavy construction traffic.
- Mound and compact material over the pipe to provide the minimum cover needed during construction.
Choosing the right backfill material and following the proper backfill procedures is crucial for the successful installation of HDPE pipe. Following the recommended procedures outlined in this article and the pocket installation guide will ensure that you achieve quick, efficient, and successful installations of HDPE pipe.
