Mega-Stop Bell Protection System Aids In Pipe Joint Assembly

Water and wastewater piping come in a variety of materials, joints, and diameters. They can meet a multitude of demands and needs for the country's infrastructure. Each of these piping choices offer an array of benefits, but none are perfect for every application. In the US, PVC as a piping material has seen significant growth in use in the last 35 years -- accounting for two-thirds by weight of plastic pipe, and almost half of all installed pipe lengths in 2004.

Each of the differing materials and joints has its own set of benefits and features, along with limitations. PVC pipe has seen its popularity rise because it is so easy to install, will not corrode, and is relatively inexpensive. The ease of installation has also exposed one of its few limitations: over-belling.
