There are many different industries and applications that use HDPE pipe. Highly flexible, this type of piping material can be used for both gases and fluids, and it an effective and safe option for even high-pressure systems and pipelines.
HDPE is a high-density polyethylene, which has been approved for use in water systems for municipalities, in sewer systems and water treatment facilities, as well as in for irritation and drainage pipes. In some applications, HDPE pipe can also be used as a conduit, often for running electrical wires and telecom wires underground.
All HDPE pipe is highly resistant to corrosion, and it is also waterproof, ensuring no leaks from the pipe to the environment and no seepage into the pipe from outside sources. It is easy to install due to the various sized of the pipe as well as the flexible nature of the material. The joining of sections of the pipe is done by fusion welding methods, creating a permanent, durable bond that is very resistant to leaks and failures.
Choosing an HDPE Supply Service
Making a selection of an HDPE supply service for all of your piping needs should be based on the availability of on-hand inventory, ability to fill orders quickly and the quality of the pipe. With this type of material approved for use for 50 years or more, it is a piping option that should be selected to meet all industry standards and requirements.
In most of the top HDPE supply services, pricing is highly competitive. However, not all industrial supply companies are able to fill all of the piping, valves, fittings, and other material needs. When choosing a supplier, always look for the ability for the company to fill the complete order, saving you on delivery, logistics, and the need to work with multiple suppliers on the project.
