Every length of percolated pipes should be separated from next tier by use of plastic belt. 4 Transportation of Pipes During transportation, the pipe should be wedged and protected in such a way as to prevent any distortion, flattening, and damage and to have longitudinal welds located at the point of minimum possible stress and to have no contact with the adjacent pipe. Metal bolsters should not be used. Approved bolsters supporting the lower tier of pipes should be shaped to support at least 30 degrees of the circumference of the pipe.
Removal of loose rocks or debris from the trench. 5. Any repair to coating or welding is made. 1 Initial Backfilling (With Soft Materials) The lowered-in pipe should be surrounded with soft materials around the sides and the top. Minimum thickness of soft material on top of pipe should be 20 cm. The soft material should be rock and stone-free sand or soft and sieved spoil or earth. The Engineer should approve the source and quality of the sand or soft earth. For this soft layer the Executor may use, with the approval of the Engineer, the softest material from sieved spoil earth cleared of all debris.
1 Dimensions to Be Observed The minimum distance between the pipe and the edge of the trench should be 1 m. 2 Percentage of Pipe Allowed for Rejection The total maximum tolerated length for the nonusable crop-ends and for the pipes rejected for reasons attributable to the Executor activities including pipes used to qualify the welding procedures and the welders, is fixed at 1% maximum of the total length of the Company supplied pipes. The lengths exceeding this amount should be charged to the Executor.
