Manufacture of sections pf pipework in PE100 for the installation of syphons under the new Madrid-Lisbon AVE line.
Five syphons were constructed to carry irrigation water from one side of the line to the other, consisting of PE piping inside a concrete sleeve. The diameters used were Ø1400, Ø1200 and Ø710 in a total of approximately 450m of pipe.
The joints were made using a thermofuson welding process.
Two welding machines were used, with maximum capacities of Ø1600 and Ø1200 respectively.
The installation operates by gravity.
PE100 material was chosen in order to ensure a perfect seal at the joints between the sections of pipe and avoid the risk of leakage.
The material used in the manufacture of the syphons was PE100 SDR26.
