Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP) Xylem US

The Basics of PCCP. Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP) consists of a concrete core, a thin steel cylinder, high tensile prestressing wires, and a mortar coating. The concrete core is the main structural load-bearing component with the steel cylinder acting as a water barrier between concrete layers. The prestressing wires produce a uniform compressive pressure in the core that offsets ...

PCCP Management Xylem US

Prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) is widely used in large, critical water pipelines and force mains. It is a very reliable pipe material. Though rare, PCCP failures are often catastrophic. These explosive failures don’t just damage the water infrastructure. They can also damage property, endanger the public, interrupt the water supply, and harm the utility’s reputation. A large ...

BWP Xylem US

While BWP looks like Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP) in cross section, their design and materials are significantly different. PCCP is a concrete pipe that remains under compression because of the prestressing wires. In BWP, the cylinder plays a much larger role in the structural integrity of the pipe, so the pipe behaves more similarly to steel pipe than PCCP.
