3) lab unit and quality control
Quality control of PE pipe
Dasht-e Kurdistan pipe is manufacture of polyethene pipes with quality control laboratory equipped with advanced laboratory equipment and by conducting rigorous tests on its products according to internal and external standards has be able to market high quality products. This lab strives to dynamically maintain and improve the effectiveness of activities continuous improvement and customer satisfaction provide its services in accordance with ISO/ IEC 17025
The tests are based on INSO14427-1,2 and ISO442701,2 standards.
The tests in this company are taken as follows:
Density according to INSO7090-1 and ISO 1182-1
The physical properties of polyethylene can be predicted by its density with good approximation. For this purpose, in the company this test is performed on the raw material and product by the floatation method.
Standard ISNO6980-1 melt flow index
This test is a method for measuring the melt mass flow rate of soft heat material, under specified conditions of temperature and in grams per 10 minutes.
Measurement of soot according to ISO6964 standard
The color of the pipe is effective on the long-term stability of the pipe against wind and sun, the soot that is added to blacken the polyethylene provides a much better resistance to UV radiation and this test controls the amount of raw material and product soot.
Soot dispersion according to INSO20059 and ISO 18553 standards accurate and good distribution of soot in PE to achieve the desired functional properties is important while proper soot dispersion is very effective in pipe surface smoothness. This test examines the dispensation and distribution of soot.
Thermal return according to INSO17614 standard during this procedure, a certain length of pipe is heated to 110°c. After heating, the pipe surfaces are examined for defects such as gaps, blisters or segregation of the walls.
Dimensional control according to ISNO2412 and ISO3126 standards.
The most important tests performed on PE:
Weight percent of soot or carbon in polyethylene
Pipe appearance properties test (dimension- diameter- color)
Oxidation rate of pipes (thermal stability)
Polyethylene pipes must achieve the desired results in all these tests; the least defect in the final result of the quality control of the PE pipe indicates that the pipe is defective and defective in the production line. For example, if soot or carbon are not uniformly distributed throughout the pipe, the different parts of the pipe will have different strengths, and therefor some parts of the pipe wall will be much more fragile than others.
The thermal stability test determines how high the polyethylene pipes are able to withstand high temperatures; this is particularly important for pipes that are to be installed in very hot operating conditions.
The management of the PE laboratory (PE pipe quality control unit) is committed and committed to providing the resources and facilities needed to meet the objectives and meet the requirements of ISO/ IEC 17025 and the continuous improvement of activities and expects the organization’s operating management provide full support for the realization of this policy, the achievement of the objectives and the accurate and effective implementation of the quality management system of the laboratory. All personnel are committed to familiarizing themselves with the quality system of the laboratory and are committed to adhering to its principles. It is our hope that by relying on God and the necessary commitment we can take an effective step in improving the quality of our beloved country, PE pipe and fittings industry.
Laboratory measuring equipment includes:
Pyrolysis apparatus for determining the weight percent of soot in a compound or pipe.
Plastometer (MFR) to determined polymer melt flow index.
Oven device for thermal return determination.
Balance accurately 0.0001 g to determine density.
DSC device for thermal stability determination.
Microscope to examine the distribution of soot.
Caliper and peripheral tape to measure pipe dimensions.
Tensile testing machine for tensile strength testing.
Electrical furnace for pyrolysis
Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)
Plastometer (MFR indexer)
Digital balance to 300gr
Digital balance to 30kg
Air thermometer and hygrometer (digital)

equipment’ of quality control laboratory
these equipment’s are required to test and evaluate the quality of PE pipes, and these tools can evaluate the quality of raw materials and PE pipes.
