HDPE Pipes


HDPE Pipes

HDPE stands for high density polyethylene pipe, a product that been used in many water supply networks applications since the 1950s. HDPE water pipes are an alternative to the more traditional pipes such as steel pipes and ductile iron pipes.

Advantages of Use

Over time, these water pipes have been refined and strengthened, saving up to 30% more space in the thickness of the pipe walls. This results in both cost savings and improved water flow, which in turn results in improved performance.

There are many advantages to using HDPE water pipes over other options:

  • HDPE water pipes are highly weatherproof in above-ground applications, as well as resistant to ultraviolet rays, wind and rain

  • They are also highly corrosion-resistant

  • They are innately strong and tough, as well as resistant to abrasive treatment

  • They come in long lengths and coils

  • HDPE pipes offer good resistance to corrosive materials, acids, salts and bases, as well as resistance to organic substances such as fuels or solvents

  • They have a long lifespan of up to 50 years in an application

  • They are easy to install

Suitable Industries

HDPE pipes are well-suited to industries such as mining and industrial. This is due to the fact that they are resistant to abrasive treatment and impact. They are also a cost-effective solution for water mains and reticulation systems for municipalities, while also being used for sewer control and water purification. They are also used in marine applications, landfills and are highly suitable for irrigation and water supply schemes for the agricultural industry. HDPE water pipes carry potable water, wastewater, slurry, hazardous waste, chemicals and compressed gasses with ease.
