HDPE SEWER PIPE
HDPE SEWER PIPE applications
HDPE SEWER PIPE Abrah Dashte Markazi's has been used in Sewer and wastewater applications since the '60s. we Produce HDPE Sewer PIPE IN 2 Base Model PE100 PIPE and PE80 PIPE In the last 10 years alone, ~3 billion feet (estimated) of HDPE SEWER PIPE were installed in the US and Canada with an excellent performance record and with minimal breakage. One of the major benefits of HDPE SEWER PIPE is fusion-welded joints which ensure very low leakage rates and thus low liquids loss costs The outstanding physical and performance benefits of HDPE SEWER PIPE make it the perfect choice for your piping systems
HDPE SEWER PIPE advantages
HDPE SEWER PIPE Construction Advantages
The combination of flexibility and leak-free joints allow for unique and cost-effective types of installation methods that the rigid PVC and Ductile Iron pipes can't use with bell and spigot connections. These alternate installation methods (Horizontal Directional Drilling, Pipe Bursting, Sliplining, Plow and Plant, Submerged or Floating Pipe, etc.) can save considerable time and money in most potable water applications. Polyethylene pipe is produced in straight lengths up to 50 feet long and coiled in diameters up through 6". Coiled lengths over 1000ft are available depending on size providing low-cost installations. HDPE Sewer Pipe is the material of choice for trenchless methods that provide the most cost-effective solutions (depending on local soil conditions) Polyethylene pipe installations are cost-effective and have long term cost advantages Firstly because its failure rate is low, the cost per mile for repair/replacement is also low due to its physical properties, HDPE is fusion-welded joints which ensure very low leakage rates and thus low water loss costs leak-free joints and reduced maintenance costs. The polyethylene pipe industry estimates a service life for HDPE SEWER PIPE to conservatively be 50-100 years. This relates to savings in replacement costs for the next generations to come. HDPE Sewer Pipe flexibility allows for bending without the need for additional fittings and can be installed over uneven terrain easily in continuous lengths Polyethylene pipe is better able to structurally withstand an impact than PVC pipe, especially in cold weather installations when other pipes are more prone to cracks and breaks. It is much easier to handle and install HDPE pipe vs. the heavier, rigid metallic or concrete pipe segments, allowing for huge cost advantages in the construction process. HDPE pipe has a smooth ID that does not corrode or tuberculate and maintains its flow capability over time. The C Factor of Ductile Iron pipe is dramatically reduced over time due to corrosion and/or tuberculation.
HDPE SEWER PIPE Corrosion and Chemical Resistant
PE is highly resistant to the wet, hydrogen sulfide gas and the low concentration acid found in a sanitary sewer. plastic sewer pipe Superior chemical resistance to aggressive soils. plastic sewer pipe will not rust, corrode, tuberculate, or support biological scale or growth, and has superb chemical resistance compared to traditional pipe materials plastic sewer pipe has superb chemical resistance and is the material of choice in harsh chemical environments The advantages of corrosion and chemical resistance over traditional metal pipes are shared by many plastic pipes, but HDPE SEWER PIPE uniquely combines these attributes with the aforementioned advantages of heat-fused joints, flexibility, and fatigue resistance. HDPE Sewer Pipe is unaffected by bacteria and fungi, offering resistance to many organic substances. To review information on PE's resistance to various chemicals. (TR-19) HDPE Sewer Pipe systems can be joined with heat fusion welds Heat fusion involves the heating of two HDPE surfaces then bringing them together to form a permanent, monolithic, leak-free system. HDPE SEWER PIPE can be heat fused in several methods (butt welding or butt fusion, socket fusion, Sidewall fusion, Electrofusion) to form a joint that is as strong or stronger than the pipe itself and is leak-free. Butt fusion and electrofusion are the most common and reliable welding techniques used to weld HDPE and offer significant installation advantages compared to traditional pipe materials. Leak-free and Strong Joints eliminates the potential leak points every 10-20 feet in PVC and Ductile Iron bell and spigot connections. The Life Cycle Cost of HDPE SEWER PIPE differs from other pipe materials because polyethylene is a reliable and cost-effective material that is easy to install and that can be used in most cases the "allowable water leakage" is zero rather than typical leakage rates of 10 to 20% for PVC and Ductile Iron. HDPE SEWER PIPE fused joints are self-restraining and costly thrust restraints or thrust blocks are not required. HDPE SEWER PIPE's fused joints simply do not leak, eliminating infiltration and exfiltration problems experienced with alternate pipe joints. the fusion process for HDPE is proven and has been used by the natural gas industry for over 40 years. Approximately 95% of all gas distribution piping in the United States is polyethylene pipe joined by heat fusion
HDPE SEWER PIPE Abrasion Resistant
PE is abrasion-resistant and is well suited for the solids environment in sewer applications.
HDPE SEWER PIPE Flexible and Fatigue Resistant
HDPE SEWER PIPE is flexible and ductile, not rigid. It has outstanding resistance to fatigue HDPE SEWER PIPE can be bent to a radius 25 times the nominal pipe diameter (Example: 12" HDPE can be cold formed in the field to a 25ft radius). This can eliminate many fittings required for directional changes in a piping system where fittings and thrust blocks or restraints are required with alternate materials. Unlike other plastic pipes, it is designed and pressure-rated to handle the kind of occasional and recurring surge events that are common in water distribution systems. The flexibility of the HDPE pressure pipe makes it well suited for dynamic soils including areas prone to earthquakes. HDPE pressure pipe can accept repetitive pressure surges that significantly exceed the static pressure rating of the pipe. In many instances, this will enable you to utilize a thinner wall HDPE SEWER PIPE as compared to other types of plastic piping
