- Construction project
- Construction management
Section change at the existing existing ethylene pipeline at the industrial sector of Can Margarit with an approximate length of 905,45 m that will be substituted by a new section of 1.568,23 m with the following characteristics:
- The maximum pressure for the service will be: 00 kg/cm2 (98,07 bar)
- Transport temperature of 40ºC
- Replaced section length L = 1.568,23 m
- The pipe will be of 6 5/8“(168,3 mm) in steel with high limit carbon, fabricated following the API 5L specification and with a X-42 quality grade.
- The selected material has the following mechanic characteristics:
- Minimum specific elasticity: 289 M Pa
- Breaking load: 413 MPa
- The selected thickness is 7,1 mm which matches to the thickness calculation applying the Barlow formula with a safety coefficient of 0,4 and a unity welding coefficient.
