Piping made from polyethylene is a cost-effective solution for a broad range of piping problems in municipal, industrial, marine, mining, landfill, duct and agricultural applications. It has been tested and proven effective for above ground, sur face, buried, slip lined, floating, and sub-sur face marine applications. High-density polyethylene pipe (HDPE) can carry potable water, wastewater, slurries, chemicals, hazardous wastes, and compressed gases. In fact, polyethylene pipe has a long and distinguished history of service to the gas, oil, mining and other industries. It has the lowest repair frequency per mile of pipe per year compared with all other pressure pipe materials used for urban gas distribution. Polyethylene is strong, extremely tough and very durable. Whether you're looking for long service, trouble-free installation, flexibility, resistance to chemicals or a myriad of other features, high-density polyethylene pipe will meet all your requirements.
Corrosion resistance. Does not rust, rotor corrode.
Leak tight. Heat-fused joints create a homogenous, monolithic system. The fusion joint is stronger than the pipe.
Maintains optimum flow rates, does not tuberculate, has a high resistance to scale or biological build-up.
Excellent water hammer characteristics. Designed to withstand surge events. High strain allowance. Virtually eliminates breakage due to freezing pipes elements.
With no exfiltration or infiltration, potable water losses and groundwater nuisance treatment costs encountered in traditional piping systems are eliminated.
Material of choice for trenchless technology. Used in directional boring, plowing, river crossings, pipe bursting and slip lining. Fewer fittings due to pipe flexibility. Allowable bending radius of 20 to 25 times outside diameter of pipe.
Lighter equipment required for handling and installation than with metallic materials. Eliminates the need for thrust blocking. Heat fused joints are fully restrained. Light weight and longer lengths allow for significant savings in labor and equipment.
Polyethylene pipe is normally joined by heat fusion. Butt, Socket, Sidewall fusion and electro fusion creates a joint that is as strong as the pipe itself, and is virtually leak free.
LIGHT WEIGHT AND FLEXIBLE
Polyethylene pipe is produced in straight lengths and in coils, made from materials about one-eight the destiny of steel. Its lightweight and does not require of heavy lifting equipment for installation. As well as it reduces the use of fittings.
