“greater flexibility, dimensional stability, durability, structural strength, toughness, and resistance to chemicals”

HDPE pipes can carry cables, chemicals, compressed gasses, hazardous wastes, oils, potable water, slurries, steam, drinking water, and wastewater. PipeFlo LDPE pipes can carry cables and water. Irrigation and agricultural applications commonly use LDPE pipes.

Properties that make polyethylene popular, as a piping material, are its greater flexibility, dimensional stability, durability, structural strength, toughness, and resistance to household and industrial chemicals. Polyethylene is commonly used as containers for household chemicals. Various sectors prefer and select polyethylene pipes for its distinctive combination of strength mixed with flexibility.

Polyethylene’s flexibility and toughness ensures that these applications will continue to grow, in its uses and the materials it can handle


HDPE Industries

PipeFlo’s high-density piping will deliver superior performance in a variety of applications and sectors:

The aircraft, automobile industries and plating shops uses HDPE for plating solutions, fume removal, ductwork, pickling and etching plants, water, drainage and effluent plants – as well as vessels. By using HDPE pipes for the irrigation of your athletic fields, they will have healthier grass and sod and effective absorption of soil nutrients, which maximizes the fields playability. A significant reduction in the chance of compaction is also possible. A healthy field leads to fewer athletic injuries and less field deterioration.   Breweries, distilleries and soft drinks factories regularly use HDPE for the transportation of alcohol, beer, brine, caustic soda, carbon dioxide, spirits, and demineralised water. Some of the other HDPE applications within this industry include: bottling, and use as pipelines and vessels.

Chemical works daily transport chemicals such as acid, alkalis, gases, and solutions use HDPE pipes. It is also used in water and effluent pipelines. HDPE pipelines carry acids, ammonia sulphate, ammonia by-products, slurry and drainage pipelines and tanks within the coke oven plants and coal gas works environment. Incollieries and mines, HDPE can be used for coal washing plants and reduction works, drainage, product transportation, general mineral processing, sluice transfer as well as effluent and slurry pipelines. What makes HDPE pipe so effective as a conveying or drainage pipe, in the mining environment, is the combination of superior hydraulics, surge resilience, as well as the overall strength and toughness combined with the cost effectiveness of HDPE. Another use of HDPE in this environment is sand stowing.  The civil engineering sector uses HDPE for drainage, dewatering, slurries and as water effluent pipelines.

PipeFlo HDPE pipes is also able to act as conduits in the electrical, telephony, fibre optic, telecommunications, and television applications in the communications sector. PipeFlo manufactures black HDPE pipes with a smooth inner surface, for these purposes.  The correct high-density piping can also act as drainage piping. Some of its forms are surface drainage, culverts, cross drains, edge drains, erosion control, bridge piers, and slope drains.  Gholf course owners can also benefit from HDPE Golf course owners and their members want to have their course playable as quickly as possible after the rain. Your golf season will be longer; the course will be in better shape for a longer period – maximizing your revenue, if you have an adequate irrigation and drainage system. HDPE is ideally suited for these applications.   High-density piping is also of valuable use in hospitals. HDPE applications include laboratory drainage, as storage tanks and as pipelines. HDPE pipes can also be used as hydro-transport systems-applications. Some sectors commonly use HDPE as conduits for boiler ash handling, slurries of iron ore, fly ash conveyance, as well as sand and slurry disposal in dredging and other extremely abrasive slurry transport.   HDPE is also economical in landfill applications. This includes its uses for leachate collection, methane gas extraction and as landfill riser shafts.   Nuclear power plants and power stations use HDPE to carry water, seawater, chemicals, and safe radioactive drainage and ultimately as effluent pipelines. Power plants commonly use HDPE as a cooling water pipe and ash slurry disposal pipes.   Oil refineries carry air, water, and acids in HDPE pipelines. These refineries also use HDPE as alkali pipelines.

Paperboard mills convey alum, bleach, caustic soda, pulp, and stock using HDPE pipes. Water pipelines and vessels successfully utilize HDPE’s high flow rates. High-density polyethylene (HDPE) has been used in potable water (drinking water) applications and has been gaining approval and growth. The Life Cycle Cost of HDPE pipe differs from other pipe materials because the “allowable water leakage” is zero.   HDPE Pipes also used as cleaning lines for railways Railways use HDPE as water lines and as carriage cleaning lines, as well as the transportation of water.    Salt mines use HDPE for brine and water pipelines. Sewage works use high-density pipe as compressed airlines for activated sludge. It is well suited for a wide range of sewage applications in various circumstances.  In spray irrigation, overhead and underground spray irrigation systems is some of HDPE’s uses. Steel factories commonly use HDPE for pickling and etching lines, the transportation of acids, water, and effluent.

These factories also use HDPE as slurry pipelines and vessels. In the sugar industry, the versatility of HDPE is a real advantage. Acids, ammonia, brine, carbon dioxide, sugar solutions, syrups, molasses can be transported in HDPE pipelines. The industry is also able to use HDPE in spray irrigation, tanks, and as water and effluent pipelines.   The textiles, leather tanning and synthetic fibres industries uses HDPE for acids, alkalis, bleach, peroxide, acetic acid, dye, liquors, Sulphide, water transportation, hot effluent pipelines, and as storage tanks.   Chemicals and dosage lines as well as compressed air pipelines can be conveyed with HDPE piping within the waterworks and water treatment plants. Water supply systems use HDPE for bore well applications. This sector also uses HDPE for lift irrigation or as a tap irrigation system, as suction and delivery lines of jet and centrifugal pumps. It also serves as temporary supply lines for systems like construction of draught relief and flood relief systems. Using HDPE pipe for your water main and wastewater disposal systems will eliminate expensive water loss, reduce water contamination, and waste pollution.   Playgrounds also needs to be irrigated       Playgrounds, swimming pools, and ice rinks commonly employ HDPE Piping.   The food industry uses HDPE for the conveying of edible oils, fruit pulps, juices, milk, and other foods. HDPE’s bacterial resistance makes it ideal for use in ultra-hygienic applications.   One can also use HDPE as ducts for air conditioning and ventilation in a variety of sectors.     Always consult with your pipe supplier about the pipe’s intended application.
