Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe; Embedded Type (AWWA C301E) English

Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP; embedded) combines concrete’s high compressive strength to form durable structures that can stand up to any water and/or wastewater project requirements.

PCCP (C301E) is manufactured in accordance with the AWWA C301 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 pipe’s unique design concept, featuring steel cylinder encased in a rugged prestressed concrete. The mortar coating on the pipe creates a passivating alkaline environment that protects the steel cylinder, joint rings and pre-stressing wire from corrosion. Since concrete continues to gain strength while underground, the materials in PCCP will be increasingly protected over many decades of service.
