Taking the Benefits of PVC Profile Pipe Up To 900mm
The need for tight joints and reliable structural performance in storm water systems was one of the driving forces in the development of PVC profile pipe.
As a result, IPEX’s Ultra Rib® has become the standard for storm water systems up to 600mm due to its ease of installation, reliable performance and resistance to corrosion and abrasion.
Our Ultra-X2® is a new dual wall PVC non-pressure drainage pipe that delivers the benefits of PVC profile pipe up to 900mm for applications like storm drainage, sanitary drainage, highway and culvert and gravity industrial lines.
Large Diameter PVC Profile Pipe for the Toughest Conditions
- Ultra-X2® has extremely tight joints. Even though it is designed as a non-pressure drainage pipe, its joints can withstand hydrostatic pressure of 15 psi. This allows it to perform even in the toughest conditions – surcharged sewers or high groundwater conditions
- Ultra-X2® is tough yet lightweight. The corrugated construction reduces pipe weight while maintaining a 46 psi ring stiffness
- Because of the smooth inside wall of Ultra-X2®, a Manning’s number of 0.009 can be used when designing systems using Ultra-X2® pipe. This compares with a Manning’s number of up to 0.023 for other materials like clay or concrete
- PVC is virtually immune to chemical attacks from any type of sewage. Hydrogen sulphide (H2S), which causes millions of dollars in damage to concrete and metal infrastructure, will not affect Ultra-X2®
Meeting the Most Demanding Standards
Ultra-X2® is manufactured in 750mm and 900mm sizes, meets ASTM F794 standards and is certified to CSA B182.4. It has a minimum ring stiffness of 320 kPa (46 psi) when tested in accordance with ASTM D2412. Its smooth interior surface means that an “n” value of 0.009 can be used with hydraulic calculations using the Manning Formula.
