What is PACE?

PPI-PACE is an online tool developed for and released by the Plastics Pipe Institute (PPI). The purpose of this tool is to assist industry professionals in the evaluation and selection of PE pipe for pressurized water distribution and transmission main systems by completing design calculations. In addition to operating pressures, PPI-PACE considers recurring and occasional transient surges and the design fatigue life of the pipeline in the evaluation process. Comparable calculations are also provided for PVC and Ductile Iron pipe following the applicable standards. The calculation methodology of PPI-PACE is an implementation of the existing standards (AWWA C900/AWWA C901/AWWA C905/AWWA C906/ASTM F714/ASTM D2241/AWWA C150/AWWA C151) provided by eTrenchless Group Inc.
