Vis Divide is a conduit product that can be installed using the following installation methods: plowed, direct bury, open trench and horizontal directional drilling (HDD).
Open trench installations should be performed in accordance with ASTM D-2321 or as specified by the project engineer. In open trench installations, care should be taken to minimize undulation in the conduit to lower cable pulling tensions. As a minimum, the conduit should be placed under tension before backfilling and only fine particle backfill material should be used. Avoid large rocks with sharp edges.
HDD installations should be performed in accordance with ASTM FI 962 recommendations as provided by the Plastic Pipe Institute and the North American Society of Trenchless Technology or as specified by the project engineer.

Vis Divide is a segmented HDPE rigid conduit that provides dedicated pathways for the placement of more than one cable in a single conduit. The initial offering is 1-1/2 nominal diameter conduit with 2 dedicated pathway.
Conduit refers to a standalone duct. Innerduct is a duct which, due to physical parameters, is placed inside another larger, outer duct. Conduit is designed with thicker walls and typically has a dimension ratio of 11 or less (schedule 80 pipe is considered to be a conduit). Innerduct is designed with thinner walls and typically has a DR of 13.5 or higher (schedule 40 pipe is considered to be an innerduct). Pipes considered to be innerducts require the protection of an outer duct to prevent them from being crushed under the weight of the earth in a direct bury application. Pipes considered to be conduits are designed to support the weight of the earth when direct buried and are strong enough to be placed via horizontal directional drilling.
