Plastic pipe is developing steadily, and HDPE pipe, PP-R pipe, UPVC pipe all occupy a place in the pipe marketing, among which the strong development momentum of HDPE pipe is the most eye-catching.
HDPE pipes and fittings are mainly made of polyethylene and colored master particles. The size of HDPE Pipes usually ranges from OD16-OD2000mm, and it’s pressure ranges from PN6 to PN20, which can meets the requirements of different customers. The HDPE pipes are widely used for agriculture applications in the field of irrigation, drainage, water supply, and gas transportation ect. Among them, water pipe and gas pipe are its two largest application markets.
HDPE pipes are selected over other conventional pipes as they are the least expensive option when comparing pipe materials , installation costs, and performance. Because of the many advantages of HDPE pipe, it is often used as replacement products of traditional steel pipe, galvanized pipe. PE pipe inner wall is smooth, and it does not change with the use of time. The small friction resistance can save energy, so the pressure loss is about 30% smaller than steel pipe. We can choose a smaller diameter than steel pipe under the requirement of same pressure. Compared with some other commonly plastic materials, polyethylene mildew resistance is much higher, long-term use also does not scale. Good hygienic performance, no additives, non-toxic, non-polluting, These features allow it to serve as a pipeline for drinking water.
