The use of polyethylene pipes in the distribution network causes contamination of the drinking water. The contaminants are a mixture of phenols, quinones, antioxidants and short polyethylene chains that in general have a functional polar oxygen group. With the use of the film-layer theory and a mass balance for a pipe, an equation is derived to compute the outlet concentration from a given pipe. The equation indicates that if the water in a pipe has a turbulent flow, the water becomes… CONTINUE READING
