HDPE Pipe

HDPE PIPE

In today’s pipe industry, engineers, installers, and environmentalists agree HDPE pipe is a superior choice for developing a truly sustainable and environmentally friendly infrastructure. From its low energy footprint, to its ease of use, to its superior joint integrity, to the short and long term economic advantages, there is no other material that can match the performance and versatility of high-density polyethylene pipe.

HDPE pipe has proven to be the pipe of choice in many industrial applications because of its non-conductivity, extreme strength, durability, flexibility and resistance to chemicals and corrosion. These qualities of high-density polyethylene offer engineers and contractors a significant design and installation advantages over traditional pipe materials.

Sustainability, service life, and lifetime costs – HDPE pipe and fittings meet the highest industrial and environmental standards today while offering tremendous long-term value to your customers.

Saltwater Condenser

Case Study: Salt Water Condenser

Objective
A Florida power plant employed a salt water condenser system made from PVC pipe. Because of the extreme UV environment, the system became inefficient at most couplings and joints due to leaking, cracking and high maintenance costs.

Solution
The solution was to replace the entire condenser system with HDPE pipe and components. The ability to weld all pipe and fitting joints allowed the integrity of the entire system to be far superior to the previous glued PVC system.

Most importantly, HDPE pipe’s resistance to UV proved to be a superior material for this unique environment. The ease of use plus the low material cost was a factor in determining a high return on investment with HDPE.

Result
The ability to join HDPE to other materials proved to be a time and cost savings for the customer. With HDPE, the leakage due to previous bad fittings and abrasion was eliminated immediately. The total return on investment was also greatly improved when the longevity and near-maintenance-free feature of HDPE was considered. HDPE proved itself to this customer and to the power industry as a material of choice for replacing worn and outdated condenser systems.
