Tools & Calculators
As Polyethylene pipe specialists, Advanced Piping Systems are here to help you get it right the first time, every time. Try these tools and calculators to assist you in planning for your next piping job.
Flange Finder Tool
Sort through approximately 500,000 possible flange combinations from across the globe to help you quickly match your flange dimension and specifications to a valve, pump, new or existing equipment.
Thermal Expansion Calculator
Thermal expansion can be compensated for with deflection legs – particularly in above ground installations of PE piping systems. This calculator will identify how much your pipeline is going to expand and contract, and what you should allow for with deflection legs.
Bracket Spacing Supporting Tool
When suspending PE pipe, it’s critical that the correct number of brackets are used and spaced correctly. That’s where Advanced Piping Systems’ bracket spacing support tool comes in handy.
Chemical Resistance Tool
This tool indicates the chemical resistance of polyethylene (PE) pipes to various chemicals at a range of temperatures. Enter your chemical type, dilution, and temperature for advice on the poly pipe that will be most suitable for your purpose.
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. This tool should be used by anyone responsible for choosing or specifying new or replacement piping.
