I am having pipe network (main, branch,sub branch file) . In which i want to split the each pipe for 500m . is there any method to split the pipe automatically.

Can you please mention which software you are using? Is it WaterGEMS / WaterCAD or SewerGEMS / CivilStorm / SewerCAD ?
The best option for both water and storm-sewer modeling systems would be to use Microstation or AutoCAD integrated platform of software. e.g. SewerGEMS for Microstation or SewerGEMS for AutoCAD and use the inherent tools of CAD application to divide the pipe each at 500 m.
Or if you are using SewerGEMS, then you can use the tool called element property inferencing, which will divide a pipe at required intervals between two selected nodes. Here is information is about the tool.

I am using water gems.
Is there a reason that you need to do this?
If you have a source file like a shapefile that includes nodes along the pipe length, you can import the nodes as junctions using ModelBuilder to update the model, then use the Batch Pipe Split tool to split the pipes and connect the pipes to the new junctions.
As Scott said, it would help to understand why you are wanting to split the pipes into 500 m segments. If you have access to MicroStation or AutoCAD, you could use drafting tools to create the equal-spaced pipes or points, then import them with ModelBuilder.

i am routing a long pipes (network) in non even ground terrain, Intermediate peak is coming. SInce there is no junction the HGL crossing with pipe is unknown.
Hence i am asking this.
