What is Cement Lined Pipe
Also known as (MSCL) (Mild Steel Cement Lined). Cement Lined Pipe is used in the transmission of potable water and sewage applications. It is also used when the process fluid may corrode regular carbon steel pipe.
Due to the fragility of the cement lined coating, it is recommended that the pipe is handled as delicately as possible. This includes the use of rubber covered hooks or other equipment that prevents the damage of the lining.
The Hazen Williams coefficient for new cement lined pipe is typically between 135-150.
Maximum velocity of a fluid of cement lined pipe is 7-9 feet per second.
Mortar Thicknesses often vary per manufacturer. They typically mortar thicknesses available are:
|Nominal Pipe Size||AWWA C205 Mortar Thickness||Maximum Span|
- ASTM C541 / C541M - Standard Specification for Linings for Asbestos-Cement Pipe
