Sanitary sewer pipe designed for watertight performance
Hancor has maintained an ongoing commitment to environmental solutions
for more than a century. That commitment has resulted in a new
top performing High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) product for the
sanitary sewer market. SaniTite Sanitary Sewer HDPE Pipe
delivers the features that engineers, contractors and municipalities
demand – durability, performance, handling, toughness during
installation and simplified field fabrication.
SaniTite was created through ten years of field trials, research
and development resulting in a High Density Polyethylene sanitary
sewer pipe that is a cost-effective alternative to traditional
materials. A watertight joint is critical in sanitary applications
to prevent water infiltration and sewer exfiltration. That’s
why the Hancor patented reinforced bell-and-spigot joint coupling
system plays a vital role in SaniTite pipe. The joint has been
field proven in many sanitary sewer watertight storm drainage
To meet the deeper burial depths and ground water pressure of sanitary
lines, the pipe is heavier than traditional corrugated HDPE storm
sewer pipe. In fact, the resins that SaniTite
utilizes are 100% virgin HDPE Material. Available in sizes from
30" to 60", SaniTite is ideal for industrial
and municipal sanitary trunk and transmission lines.
- High Performance HDPE used to withstand long-term environmental
and installed conditions.
- Tough, high impact resistance HDPE to resist breakage.
- Available in 20' lengths for shallow burial and shorter lengths
to safely accommodate trench boxes.
- Lightweight, easy to handle, easily cut in field.
- Bell-and-spigot joint for ease and speed of connection.
- High UV resistance for hassle-free site storage.
- Heavier weight for deeper installations.
- Smooth liner for greater hydraulics.
- Extended bell and spigot for easier joint assembly and greater performance.
PERFORMANCE ENGINEERED MATERIALS
Hancor SaniTite pipe is made from virgin High Density Polyethylene
(HDPE) material, which is arguably the best material to withstand
abrasion, and corrosive attacks from acidic and alkaline soils
as well as the harsh chemicals found in industrial waste and municipal
sewer. HDPE specifications have no allowance for fillers or recycled
material when conforming to ASTM D3350. This virgin material assures
the physical properties meet the minimum classification of 435400C
as defined and described in ASTM D3350. This assures impact strength
and long-term service life for the tough, real world environment
of sanitary sewer.
ADVANCED ENGINEERED JOINT PERFORMANCE
The Hancor patented composite joint system is used to assure long-term
watertightness. Joint tightness exceeds the minimum requirement
of ASTM D3212. The composite jointing system not only meets the
laboratory test of ASTM D3212 but has been shown to provide continuous
watertight performance. At the heart of success for the jointing
system is the patented reinforced bell-and-spigot technology. Bells for SaniTite are extended to provide a longer sealing area. In addition the multiple gaskets are used for redundant watertight joining.
CONTRACTOR’S CHOICE FOR CONSTRUCTION
Heavier wall and high performance HDPE assure owners and contractors
of the structural integrity of the Hancor SaniTite pipe. This all adds up to a more
installation friendly pipe.
ENGINEERING AND MANUFACTURING
Hancor sanitary sewer pipe uses state-of-the-art seamless construction
with annular corrugations which provide superb structural integrity.
Some manufacturers use helically wrapped thermoplastic pipe technology,
which provides opportunity for seam separation and splitting. Additionally,
Hancor sanitary sewer pipe has integral bells and spigots formed
by continuous extrusion without the use of postproduction welding.
This tough, highly engineered product is constructed with higher
performance material built to withstand the rigors of the installed
environment and handle impacts well in excess of its rivals.
OUTSTANDING HYDRAULICS IN REAL APPLICATIONS
Hancor sewer pipe is a dual wall product with a smooth waterway.
Advanced material technology in combination with thicker liners
translates into smooth liners. With EPA design criteria dictating
a Manning’s coefficient consistent with that of RCP, HDPE
offers a smooth liner meeting these requirements. Typical in-service
field conditions result in a design Manning’s coefficient
of not greater than 0.012.
COMPLETE LINE OF FITTINGS AND ACCESSORIES
In addition to a superb pipe product, Hancor offers a complete
line of fittings, manhole connection adapters, and accessories.
In addition to typical fittings, tap tees are also available
for post installation connections.
