PSI Model PE Casing Spacers

PSI Model PE Casing spacers/isolators are manufactured from high density (linear), injection molded polyethylene to provide positive insulation, high abrasion resistance and low coefficient of friction.

Description

PSI Model PE Non-Metallic Casing Spacers/Isolators

Model PE Description

Model PE Casing Isolators are designed primarily for smaller diameter steel or polyethylene carrier pipes (ANSI O.D. pipe without a bell or mechanical joint). We do not recommend that they be used on any carrier pipe over 24″ in diameter or for installations over 300 feet long without consulting with PSI. PE Isolators should not be used on concrete carrier pipe.

High density (linear), injection molded virgin polyethylene casing isolators/spacers provide positive insulation, high abrasion resistance and low coefficient of friction for a wide variety of double containment carrier/casing pipe applications. They are extremely light in weight and easy to handle during installation.

A ribbed inner surface prevents slippage and guards against carrier pipe coating damage while the outer surface may include any one of several molded runners to accommodate 2″ (50.8mm) x 4″ (101.6mm) or larger carrier/casing differentials.

One piece solid molded segments provide for maximum load bearing. Hardware includes cadmium plated steel studs, nuts and washers. A screwdriver is the only tool needed for installation.

Targeted Use

Energy

  • For carrier pipe diameters (Nominal Steel & IPS) ranging from 3/4″ (19.1mm) to 48″ (121.92cm).
  • For carrier pipe insertion lengths up to 1,000 feet.*
  • Spacing Recommendation: Max 8′ (243.8cm) between spacers, Max 2′ (61.0cm) from casing pipe end.
  • Recommended End Seals: Model C, S, W, R, and FW

Model PE Casing Isolators are designed primarily for smaller diameter steel or polyethylene carrier pipes (ANSI O.D. pipe without a bell or mechanical joint). We do not recommend that they be used on any carrier pipe over 24″ in diameter or for installations over 300 feet long without consulting with PSI. PE Isolators should not be used on concrete carrier pipe.

Benefits and Features

  • 5″ (127mm) wide band for maximum hoop strength around carrier pipe.
  • Ribbed inner surface prevents slippage and guards against coating damage.
  • Molded from virgin polyethylene material.
  • Lightweight for ease of handling and installation.
  • Screwdriver is only tool needed for installation.
  • Model available with non-metallic hardware.
  • High-temp model available (up to 12″ [305mm]) for service temperatures to 280°F (138°C).
  • Eliminates the Need for Blown Sand or Pea Gravel

Typical Application for Model PE Casing Spacers

psi casing spacer typical application

Typical Installation

Based on 20 ft. (6.0 meters) carrier pipe segments in a casing of not more than 300 ft. (91.5 meters). Consult Allied Corrosion for longer casings and for concrete pipe.

Recommended Maximum Spacing

All Model PE Isolator/Spacers should not exceed 5 ft. (1.5 meters) to 8 ft.(2.4 meters) center-to-center. An isolator/spacer should be placed within 2 ft.(0.6 meters) on each side of a coupling or joint and within 1 ft.(0.3 meters) of each end of the casing.

Approved manufacturer: Pipeline Seal and Insulator, Inc.

End Seal Specification

After insertion of the carrier pipe in the casing, the ends of the casing shall be closed by installing a PSI Model “C”, Model “S” or Model “FW” casing end seal as manufactured by Pipeline Seal and Insulator, Inc., Houston, TX.

Link-Seal® End Seal Specification

(Carrier Pipe Must Centered Within Casing)

After insertion of the carrier pipe in the casing, the ends of the casing shall be closed by installing the Link-Seal® end seals and a 1/8″ thick synthetic rubber end seal equal to the PSI Model “C” end seal. Both as manufactured by Pipeline Seal and Insulator, Inc., Houston, TX.
