The sections of pipe are set on helps approximately six inches off the floor and welded jointly. every one connection needs to be totally hermetic and is hence x-rayed. no longer till the x-rays are checked is the pipeline licensed. At particular destinations, metal straps known as anchors are welded round the pipe. those should be completely embedded into the concrete. nearly each hundred ft, versatile connections referred to as enlargement joints are inserted among sections of the pipeline. they enable for enlargement or contraction within the pipe because of alterations in temperature. the full pipeline is then wrapped in a two-and-a-half-inch thick coat of insulation, and the concrete itself is poured until eventually at least 4 inches covers the head of the pipe. the ditch is widened a little round the anchors and growth joints to extend the thickness of the concrete at these destinations. concrete sleeve insulation enlargement joint straps pipe reinforcing rods As within the water process, the distribution of steam is regulated through a sequence of valves and meters reached both via valve bins or manholes counting on the scale. so much steam manholes are oblong and feature entrances from the road. this permits for extra effective laborious of sizzling air by means of pumping clean air into one gap and permitting it to flee throughout the different.
