PE water supply pipes should be stacked horizontally on a leveled cushion. The total width of the cushion shall not be less than 75mm, the interval shall not exceed 1m~1.5m, the overhang on both sides shall not exceed 0.5m, and the relative height of the accumulation shall not exceed 1.5m. PE water supply pipe fittings should be stacked step by step, not too high.
PE water supply pipes should be stacked according to different specifications and models: PE water supply pipes below Dn25 can be bundled, and the length of each bundle should be the same, and the net weight should not exceed 50Kg. PE water supply pipe fittings should be boxed according to different varieties, specifications and models, and be tied and hoisted with non-metallic ropes.
During the whole process of transportation and storage, the small diameter PE water supply pipe can be inserted into the large diameter PE water supply pipe.
The PE water supply pipe should not be exposed to the sun, rain, or contact with raw oil, acid, alkali, salt, specificity and other compounds.
The storage period of PE water supply pipes from manufacturing to application shall not exceed one year.
The PE water supply pipe should be stored in a warehouse or simple shed with good natural ventilation and a temperature of -5~40℃. It should not be stored outdoors, and the distance between the heat source and the heat source is 1 meter. When temporarily accumulating on the construction site, shelters are required. The pipe fittings should be placed in airtight packaging bags, packaged in large quantities or individually, and stored in thick cardboard boxes.
