Industrial Sector

A pipe does more than just transport industrial fluids from one location to another. It must also be corrosion and abrasion resistant. It must be flexible and easy to install and maintain a high flow coefficient throughout its service life.

All these benefits are obtained with polyethylene pipes from Plasco. Because of the hazardous nature of some chemicals being transported, it is imperative that the system does not leak. Joining of polyethylene pipes with butt fusion and electro fusion techniques gives a leak free joint that is as strong if not stronger than the pipe itself in tension and pressure applications. These joints are self-restrained. They need no thrust blocks or restraint harness except where the pipe attaches to a non-polyethylene system.

Industrial Applications for HDPE pipes;

  • Fire Hydrant Systems
  • Pipe rehabilitation in both plant and out of plant piping
  • Compressed air piping
  • Refrigeration piping systems
  • Process fluid transport systems
