Industrial and Mining Applications
For long-term trouble-free service in industrial and mining applications, it is critical that an industrial-grade pipe system withstand daily pressure fluctuations and resist the corrosive and abrasive effects of the aggressive materials that pass through it, such as acids or salts commonly found in mines.
HDPE pipe fills the need with low resistance to flows, leak-free fusion joints, toughness, abrasion resistance, tolerance for variable operating conditions, and exceptional long-term performance. It has low installation and maintenance costs, and lengths of pipe are joined using heat fusion on site. It is used in mining applications for water management, such as: conveying or drainage pipe, river water diversion, sewer, and sub-drainage systems. HDPE pipe is lightweight, flexible, and very durable in challenging applications. With its higher flow coefficients, exceptional chemical and abrasion resistance, and superior design life, HDPE pipe is the ideal piping solution for Industrial and Mining applications.
