Test reports – Hydrostatic Design Basis (HDB)
The hydrostatic design basis of Flowtite pressure pipe is determined based on conducting long term pressure regression tests following the guidelines of ASTM D2992-96. This report presents all of the test data, analysis procedure and the resulting 50 year strain design basis (HDB) for Flowtite pipe. Use this test report to demonstrate that Flowtite pipe is designed to have a minimum factor of safety of 1.8 in 50 years. It is a proof statement on the longevity of Flowtite GRP pipe.
