Our HDPE siphonic roof drainage system is designed to guarantee maximum drainage performance with the lowest levels of water accumulation on the roof. By means of siphon action which generates pressure flow in the pipe, the system can quickly discharge the rainwater on the roof.
HDPE pipes and fittings used in this rainwater drainage system come with smaller diameter than those in conventional gravity discharge system. They can be installed horizontally without having to keep an inclined angle.
The siphonic system is widely used for roof rainwater drainage in high-rise buildings, shopping malls, supermarkets, railway stations, airports, mines, artistic and sports buildings, etc.
HDPE pipes and fittings for siphonic roof drainage system can bear a certain negative pressure. Kingbull is one of the rare enterprises in China which can offer full range of siphonic HDPE pipes, fittings and accessories.
The system is mainly comprised of three parts (as shown below):
As rain falls, rainwater enters the outlet from its side. When the rainwater on the roof is accumulated to a certain height, anti-eddy unit in the outlet will block the entry of air into the system and at the same time stop a vortices forming, thus enabling the rainwater to enter the drain pipe stably. As air is stopped entering the pipe, siphonage is formed.
The connector of our roof outlet is made of HDPE. It can be directly connected to the system pipe and ensure high air tightness, making it easy to form a stable siphonic drainage.
Kingbull’s roof outlets for siphonic roof drainage system are composed of leaf guard, outlet bowl and connector (tail),
Note: If the outlet is made of cast iron or steel, it requires clamp connection to the pipe. In this case, air tightness can not be guaranteed, thus leading to water leakage. (as shown below)Clamp Connection
Siphonic roof drainage system will generate negative pressure during work, so it is required that the pipes used in the system has to be able to bear a certain negative pressure. The pictures below show the pressure state in pipe.

Currently, Kingbull’s whole set of HDPE pipes for Siphonic system have passed the negative pressure (-0.08Mpa) test. We are the only enterprise in China to realize this.
We use PE100 HDPE pipes which come with following advantages:
a. Higher rigidity, larger negative pressure bearing capacity, safer system running;
b. Better resistance to environmental stress cracking, longer service life;
Specifications: 11 options from dn50 to dn315
Advantages of Kingbull HDPE Pipes and Fittings
Production capacity: Kingbull uses self produced HDPE drainage pipes and fittings.
Pressure bearing capacity: Our PE100, PN6 HDPE pipes feature high pressure bearing capacity. Nominal pressure is 0.6Mpa. They comply with the standards of EN1519-1 and ISO 8770.
Molding method: Our HDPE pipes under dn200 are injection molded, ensuringhigh pressure bearing capacity and small flow resistance.
Compatibility: All products from Kingbull are independently developed and manufactured, thus ensuring excellent system compatibility. In addition, the design software that we use works based on the parameters of our own pipes and fittings. So, it is sure to form stable siphonic action.
4. Metal Fastening System
Fasteners are often used in pipe installation. They must have specific strength which can withstand the weight of pipe with full flow and force from high speed flow. And they should ensure the HDPED pipes will not deform as ambient temperature changes.
Our metal fastening parts are manufactured from cold rolled steel. Their zinc coatings have passed strict acid mist test, ensuring high longevity.
