    Specifies methods for handling, storage, installation, testing and commissioning of polyethylene (PE) pipelines, above or below ground, for pressure and non-pressure applications conveying liquids.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out methods for handling, storage, installation, testing and commissioning of polyethylene (hereinafter referred to as PE) pipelines, above or below ground, for both pressure and non-pressure applications conveying fluids.NOTE: Where PE pipelines are to be installed underground the safe installation depths are calculated by reference to AS/NZS 2566.2.This Standard applies to PE pipe systems that carry liquids under either pressure or gravity flow situations and the components of which comply with, but are not limited to, the following:(a) AS 2698.2 - PE rural pipe.(b) AS/NZS 4129 - Fittings for PE pipes for pressure applications.(c) AS/NZS 4130 - PE pipes for pressure applications.(d) AS 4176 - Polyethylene/aluminium and cross-linked polyethylene/aluminium macro-composite pipes for pressure applications.(e) AS/NZS 4401 - PE pipe for soil and waste discharge.(f) AS/NZS 4798(Int) - PE maintenance shafts.(g) AS 4799 - Underground installation within railway boundaries.(h) AS/NZS 5065 - PE and PP pipes for drainage and sewerage.
