High density polyethylene is rapidly becoming the material of choice by engineers and contractors in mission-critical industrial applications. From power production to chemical to mining applications, HDPE is well suited for these environments due to its corrosion and abrasion resistance, flexibility, ease of installation, and its ability to provide a high service life.
HDPE, Inc. brings extensive experience in industrial pipe system design assistance, fabrication and installation. Our product specialists can help adapt any technical specification to a successful design solution, and our industry-qualified technicians can work with technicians and contractors to complete a successful installation that meets project specifications.
For over 30 years, HDPE pipe and fittings have demonstrated superior performance in demanding and harsh environments commonly found in mining applications. The characteristics of high-density polyethylene make it ideal for things like slurry processing, water processing, heap leaching, solution mining, tailings transportation, pit & mine dewatering, depressurization and dust suppression.
Why are engineers and contractors making HDPE the material of choice for mining applications? High-density polyethylene has a very high resistance to most harsh chemicals and can handle acids ranging from low ph acids to high ph caustic solutions. In addition HDPE offers superior corrosion and abrasion resistance, flexibility, ease of installation, and a service life of 50-100 years.
HDPE, Inc. offers a superior ability to withstand high external loads as well as the ability to expand during high internal pressure surges. These factors increase the life of the pipeline and reduce the lifetime cost of system maintenance, adding to the ROI of using high-density polyethylene in mining applications.
HDPE, Inc. brings solid experience in the design and installation of systems in these harsh environments. Our ability to provide technical expertise and factory-certified installation allows your project to meet or exceed project deadlines and expectations.
Chemical plants and chemical transmission applications are among the most toxic, highly-demanding for pipe and fittings. High-density polyethylene offers a superior resistance to a wide range of chemicals, acids, alkalis and corrosive chemicals. Plus, a low friction coefficient coupled with pipe systems that don’t require numerous joints and couplings means HDPE pipe systems are more efficient and cost effective.
HDPE provides superior advantages over traditional pipe materials due to flexibility, ease of handling, longer service life and its ability to be configured to meet almost any unique and non-standard situation in the field.
HDPE, Inc. offers extensive experience in the design and installation of systems in these harsh chemical environments. Our ability to provide technical expertise and factory-certified installation allows your project to meet or exceed industrial and environmental requirements as well as project deadlines and expectations.
The capabilities and benefits of high-density polyethylene in industrial applications is rapidly gaining traction in Power Production applications such as hydroelectric, thermal, coal and nuclear. HDPE pipe’s ability to handle extreme temperature differences, pressure surges and corrosive materials make this an ideal product for these harsh environments.
One of the most critical requirements in Power Production is the ability to control and transfer heat energy throughout the facility. HDPE offers products and solutions that meet the most demanding project requirements while maintaining a superior, environmentally friendly footprint.
HDPE, Inc’s expertise in the design and installation of pipe systems for Power Production applications is second to none. Our ability to provide technical expertise and factory-certified installation allows your project to meet or exceed industrial and environmental requirements as well as project deadlines and expectations.
Case Study: Adding an Outlet to an Existing System
A major water treatment facility needed to add secondary outlet to one of their high pressure feed lines. Engineers look for a solution that would minimize downtime during the installation.
HDPE Inc. product specialists worked with plant engineers to design a new high-pressure outlet that fed the new service line. The solution was to first install the new manifolds and service lines, then complete the project by installing the outlets once the entire system was shut down in depressurized. This is minimized overall plant downtime and created a safer more effective working solution for field technicians.
HDPE Inc. exceeded the client’s expectations and provided a superior solution at a fraction of the cost of using traditional pipe materials. Installation and planting downtime were held to a minimum, which contributed to a negligible loss of service for the processing plant.
