Agruline | HDPE Fittings, Pipes and Valves (PE 100-RC)

The AGRULINE product range offers a complete, high-quality products range of HDPE fittings, pipes, valves and customized components for safe and environmental friendly operation of gas and potable water distribution networks. 70 years of experience, a highly knowledgeable staff and state-or-the-art manufacturing equipment are the cornerstones for our high quality products Made in Austria.

Agru’s HDPE Fittings are Approved by ADWEA – Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority.

World first in PE 100-RC

Our HDPE Fittings and Pipes are made from PE 100-RC (RC = resistance to cracks). The main technical advantage of PE 100-RC is that it is significantly more resistant to slow crack growth. This saves costs during installation, improves safety, and extends the service life of the entire piping system.

HDPE Fittings PE 100-RC

A complete range of injection moulded HDPE Fittings made of PE 100-RC is available. This includes HDPE Fittings for butt-fusion welding in long spigot and short-spigot version, as well and HDPE Fittings for electro-fusion welding.

Service life up to 10 times longer

In a comprehensive series of tests, the renowned HESSEL Ingenieurtechnik GmbH test institute impressively demonstrated that the service life of PE 100-RC electro-fusion couplers is many times longer than that of PE 100 electro-fusion couplers currently available on the market. The vertical axis shows the service life in an accelerated internal pressure test (90 °C, test pressure of 9.2 bar and wetting agent 2% NM5 in deionised water). The horizontal axis shows the correlating service life of corresponding test specimens in a full-notch creep test (FNCT), which were also subjected to accelerated test conditions.

The results of these tests proof a service life of up to ten times longer for PE 100-RC electro-socket fittings under identical test conditions!

FNTC Test Results

PE 100-RC material requirements

The full-notch creep test (FNCT as per ISO 16770) is a recognised test method for determining resistance to slow crack growth in polyethylene. After a wetting agent has been applied, a notched test specimen is exposed to tensile stress at a high temperature (80 °C). The minimum service life for PE 100-RC fittings must be > 8760 hours acc. to PAS 1075. In contrast to this, the required minimum service life for PE 100 components acc. to DVS 2205-1 is just 300 hours. The excellent quality and operating safety of AGRULINE fittings has now been substantially improved once again through the new PE 100-RC.
