“ID” and “OD” of HDPE pipe ( High-Density Polyethylene pipe ) is the width of the pipe calculated from inside and outside where “ID” ( Internal Diameter ) is calculated from inside edges of the pipe and “OD” ( Outer Diameter ) is calculated from outside edges of the pipe from top to bottom . ID and OD of the pipes are measured to determine the size of the pipe required to be used for a specific project.
Why do we need to measure OD of a pipe?
Measuring the OD of HDPE pipe is important because the OD of the pipe is an indication of the size of the pipe. It is an important factor in calculating the area for installation and also to select the accurate size of fittings and equipments. OD of the pipe also verifies that the pipe produced are produced according to the standards as most of the standards in the world specifies OD as one the parameters.
Why do we need to measure ID of a pipe?
Measuring the ID of HDPE pipe is important because the ID of the pipe is an indication of the size of the pipe from inside and is an important factor in calculating the flow rate, volume and velocity of the fluid inside the pipe.
