The APS temperature rating tool

Take the guesswork out of identifying the Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure of a PE pipe with Advanced Piping Systems’ temperature rating tool. Whether you need to choose an appropriate class of pipe for above-ground piping in hot subtropical climates, or undertake dewatering at a deep Super Pit with consistently warm bore water, the APS temperature …

That’s where Advanced Piping Systems’ flange finder tool comes in.   Our flange finder tool can sort through approximately 500,000 possible flange combinations from across the globe, …

The APS thermal expansion calculator

It’s physics 101: materials expand when heated and contract when cooled. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes are not immune to this phenomenon.  HDPE pipes expand and contract when the pipe temperature changes from the installation condition to the operating condition. When a pipe expands, it can generate enormous force and stress in the system, but, if …
