ACU-GAS – Making Gas Pipeline Installation a Breeze!

Gas distribution is an important sector for high integrity products where the safe transport of gaseous fuels is of paramount importance. Acu-Gas HDPE pipe is the system of choice for below-ground natural and LP gas mains and distribution pipelines.

Acu-Tech has forged strong relationships with both gas-fitters and gas utilities over many years. We offer support, training and advice on complete package solutions.

Key features and benefits:

  • Approved for below ground installations under AS 5601-2004: Gas Installations
  • Full yellow coating for clear identification
  • Electrofusion or butt fusion jointing method creates a completely homogeneous joint which is stronger than the pipe itself.
  • Integrity and durability proven in the field by utilities Australia wide.
  • Flexibility of pipe allows cold bending to accommodate minor changes in direction, and also accommodates ground movement.
  • Manufactured to AS/NZS 4130 “Polyethylene – PE – pipes for pressure applications” and AS/NZS 4129 “Fittings for polyethylene (PE) pipes for pressure applications”
  • Acu-Gas is available in 20, 40, 63, 110, 160 and 225 mm diameters as standard stock items. Larger sizes made to order.
  • Coils of up to 100 metres are available in 20, 40, 63 and 110 mm diameters, vastly reducing the amount of joints in a pipeline
  • The relatively light weight of Acu-Gas makes it easy to transport, handle and install, offering overall project savings.
  • Electrofusion fittings can be used to weld gas pipe lengths, including using mechanical tapping bands, gas tapping saddles and branch saddles.
  • Very high safety factor: According to AS5601-2004, operating limit is 200 kPa, whereas the hydrostatic design pressure for Acu-Gas SDR11 pipe is 2000 kPa (before safety factor).
  • Live main self-tapping electrofusion tapping saddle fittings available for “hot tap-ins”.
  • Electrofusion welding equipment can be used for joining HDPE gas pipe, as well as hdpe pipe scrapers or turbo pipe scrapers, isopropyl welding wipes, and towing heads for HDD.
  • Gas flow through Acu-Gas pipe can be stopped by using a “squeeze-off” tool, where interruption is required for emergency, repair or tee-in operations etc.
