Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe Lined Type (AWWA C301L)
The Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP, Lined) brings together concrete’s high compressive strength and steel’s high tensile strength to form a durable structure that can stand up to any project’s requirements.
It is ideal for all municipal water and wastewater applications, as well as industrial piping. PCCP (C301L) is manufactured in accordance with the AWWA C-301 Standard and is designed in accordance with the AWWA C304 standard. There are many major benefits achieved by using PCCP. The source of all these benefits is the pipes unique design concept featuring steel cylinder lined with a rugged prestressed concrete. The mortar coating on the pipe creates a passivating alkaline environment that protects the steel cylinder, joint rings and pre-stressed wire from corrosion. Since concrete continues to gain strength while underground, the materials in PCCP will be increasingly protected over many decades of service.
