Pipeliners Dictionary

Buried pipelines are often used for transporting important and potentially hazardous materials, so it's important that they are engineered and constructed to ensure their reliability and safety.

Buried pipelines are typically constructed of materials that are corrosion-resistant, such as steel or plastic. The pipes are typically coated or covered with materials such as polyethylene to further protect against corrosion. The pipelines are also designed to withstand the weight of the soil and other materials above it, as well as any changes in the soil due to temperature or weather changes. Additionally, buried pipelines are often designed to be flexible, to help absorb and resist the effects of external forces such as earthquakes or shifting soil.

Buried pipelines must also be properly installed and maintained to ensure their continued safety and reliability. This may involve regular inspections, pressure testing, and monitoring of the pipeline to detect and prevent leaks, corrosion, or other problems.

In summary, buried pipelines are an important part of modern infrastructure, serving a crucial role in the transportation of essential materials. They are designed to be safe, durable, and reliable, and require proper installation, maintenance, and monitoring to ensure their continued operation.
