Industrial Piping

It is a short section of HDPE industrial water piping with a suction pressure of 50 psi. It tends to fail due to vibration, causing down time. Any suggestions. After looking around, I learned — What exactly is the nature of the failure? If it is coming apart at the fittings you have to keep in mind that polymers will creep over time. This means that the pipe fittings may be tight when the pipe is first assembled but over time the molecules in the pipe relax and the fittings no longer hold pressure. Look at creep data for various flavors of plastics/rubber and determine if you can use a better material.
