Session #6: Ductile Iron Pipe, A Proven Alternative for Your Distribution System
Expires Wed. April 14, 2021
Ductile iron pipe is a commonly specified pressure piping material for potable water distribution and treatment systems across Canada. In this session we will go over the manufacturing process for ductile iron pipe. We will also go over pipe wall thickness design, corrosion control strategies and life cycle costing.
At the completion of this one-hour OJT session, participants will be able to demonstrate the following:
- An understanding of the mechanical properties of ductile iron pipe.
- An ability to select appropriate class of piping for your needs.
- An understanding of corrosion mechanisms as they pertain to underground infrastructure
- Prevention of corrosion, both internal and external for metallic infrastructure.
- Comprehension of the costs involved in a linear infrastructure project over the life of an asset.
