|High – Density Polyethylene Pipe Systems
|Meeting the challenges of the 21st centuryPiping made from polyethylene is a cost effective solution for a broad of piping problems in construction, municipal, industrial, marine, landfill, ducting, sewarage system and agricultural applications. It has been tested and proven effective for above ground, surface, buried, slipined, floating, and sub-surface marine applications. In fact, polyethylene pipe has a long and distinguished history of services to the water supplies, drainage, systems, gas, oil, mining and other industries. It has the lowest repair frequency per mile of pipe material used, polyethylene is strong, extremely tough and very durable. Whether you’re looking for long service, trouble-free installation, flexibility resistance to chemical or a myriad of other features, high-density polyethylene pipe will meet all your requirements.
Features of Drip ‘n ‘Drip HDPE pipe :
Leak Free Joints :
Polyethylene pipe is normally joined by heat fusion. But sock side wall fusion an The life cycle cost of Drip ‘n ‘Drip HDPE Pipe can be significantly less than other pipe materials because the ” allowable water leakage ‘ is zero Typical leakage rates for other systems are 10 to 20 percent.
|Corroson, Abrasion, And Chemical Resistant :
Polyethylene pipe’s performance is mining, dreading and similar applications proves is will outwear many more costly piping materials when conveying a variety of abrasive slurries. HDPE had excellent corrision resistance and is virtually inert. It does not need expensive maintenance or cathodic protection.
Outstanding resistance to both, internal and external chemical attack has made the Drip ‘n ‘Drip HDPE Pipe the material of choice for the transport of lower temperature (below 1500F) fluids in adverse chemical environment. High Density Polyethylene is chemically inert to a wide range of industrial chemically. In addition, Polyethylene is unaffected by bacteria, fungi and the most” aggressive ” naturally occurring soils. It has good resistance to many organic substances, such as solvents and fuels.
|Excellent Flow Characteristics :
Because Polyethylene is smoother than steel, cast iron, ductile iron, or concrete, a smaller PE pipe can carry an equivalent volumetric flow rate at the same pressure. It has less drag and a lower tendency for turbulence at high flow. Its superior chemical resistance and non-stick surface combine to almost eliminate scaling and pitting and preserve the excellent hydraulic characteristics though out the pipe service life.
|Lightweight, Flexble And Fatigue Resistance :
Polyethylene pipe is produced in straight lengths or in coils. Made from materials about one-eighth the density of steel, it is lightweight and does not require the use of heavy lifting equipment for installation. It reduces the need for fittings, is excellent is shifting soils and performs well in earthquake-prone areas. This physical attributes also allow HDPE pipe to safely accept repetitive pressure surges that significantly exceed the static pressure rating of the pipe. HDPE resists the effects of freezing and allows bending without the need for an excessive number of fittings. Since HDPE is not a bottle material, it can be installed with bends over uneven terrain easily in continuous lengths additional welds or couplings. HDPE pipes can be bent to redius 25 times of the nominal pipe diameter (12 inch HDPE pipe. For e.g. Can be cold formed in the field to a 25 foot redius.) This eliminated many of the fittings otherwise required for directional changes in piping system.
|Ductility And Toughness :
Polyethylene pipe and fittings are inherently tough, resilient and resistant to damage caused by external loads, vibrations and from pressure surges as water hammer. Even in cold weather Polyethylene pipe is tolerant handing and bending.
Butt Welding/Fusion Welding of PE Pipes :
Butt-welding is a reliable and most important jointing method in HDPE Pipes. This methods is heat pressure related process by which the pipe end material of two pipes are fused together under pressure creating a homogenous pipe structure. Simple in its idea, the butt fusion process demands high accuracy to give the final product i.e. a BUTT WELD/ FUSION WELD. However, the method is very simple and reliable.
