About HDPE Pipes
HDPE or High Density Polyethylene is a type of plastic that is commonly used in the production of durable piping and geo-membranes. An HDPE pipe is a type of high-quality corrosion resisting pipe that is used in various industries. One of the greatest features of piping of this kind, when compared to other types of piping, is that it can be manufactured to be flexible. The pipe can also be recycled or melted down and recreated a few times. During this process, the qualities of the material will not be lost. As a result of this particular quality, HDPE pipes can be butt welded. This means that no connectors are required to join pipes together. The ends of each stretch of pipe can be heated and then pushed together to join. The two pipes will now form one.
It is obvious to see that this particular type of pipe is preferred for its durability and, of course, its convenience. When shopping around for HDPE pipes, you will find that it is available in various sizes, which are given a DR rating. This rating refers to the outside diameter of the pipe and the minimum wall thickness. While this type of pipe is ideal for use in just about any application, due to its flexibility, there are some instances where it is not advisable. For instance, you would not use these pipes in gravity-based sewer systems. Depending on where you acquire your pipe from, it can be colour coded in order to match the type of application that it is suited to, such as water distribution, sewers and so on. Check with your supplier which pipes are best suited to each application before you make a purchase.
