HDPE or High Density Polyethylene pipe has been used for over five decades, and it is a durable, rugged, and flexible type of pipe that can stand up to a wide range of environmental conditions.
This is a type of pipe that is resistant to corrosion and to chemical damage, and it is highly rated for stress crack resistance. For this reason, as well as several others, it is a commonly used piping option in the oil and gas industries. It is also used in systems where high pressure is a factor, and the ability to withstand damage is critical to avoid leaks.
It is also not uncommon to find older steel pipes being replaced with HDPE pipe and fittings in waster, water, and processing plant types of applications. The leak resistance of this pipe, combined with the ability to fuse the pipe in a seamless and strong joint makes this the ideal option in a wide range of applications.
A Reliable Supply
Finding an HDPE supply company to provide the quality and volume of HDPE pipe is critical, particularly on big projects and construction jobs. Working with an experienced supplier gives your team the ability to set up just in time orders or to work directly with the supplier to manage single high volume types of orders.
The experience of the HDPE supply company also ensures the contractor that the HDPE pipe supplied meets all codes and standards required for the application.
Specified Pipe Options
The HDPE supply companies that do a high volume business with the manufacturers are able to ensure they can offer the pipe with the wall thickness, diameter, and even the specific composition in the plastic. This is an advantage to any contractor as the quality is consistent, ensuring easy installation and consistency in order over large jobs.
