DWC Pipes are Double Walled Corrugated Duct Pipes and are manufactured from HDPE Materials. They were specifically created to offer the most cost-effective solutions to those who are looking for replacements of GI, RCC, or PVC Pipes to lay Fibre Electric Cable networks.
DWC HDPE Pipe has been widely used in wastewater collection and transport networks since the 1980s. These DWC HDPE pipelines are very useful for municipal bodies, urban conglomerates, or agricultural drainage.
DWC HDPE pipe are made of materials that are cost-effective and provide service to the contractor. HDPE Double Wall Corrugated Pipes made of high-density Polyethene have the longest life expectancy.
High-density polyethylene pipes (HDPE) are made from PE 100 and 100 RC materials. Some pipes are resistant, to wear, tear and UV radiation. The pipes can be non-toxic, flexible, and homogeneous with welded or fluted connections. They are resistant to light absorption, can withstand harsh conditions, and are highly productive. Some pipes can be used in power plants and other applications such as rehabilitation, large sewage system, or seawater desalination. Serves the needs of the oil, natural gas, coal combustion residual (CCR), and civil, environmental as well as mining, water, and wastewater industries.
HDPE tube, a type of flexible plastic pipe, is used for fluid transfer. High-pressure pipelines can be made of thermoplastic HDPE, high-density polyethylene. Its high impermeability (and strong molecular link) makes it ideal. HDPE tube is used in various applications around the world, including water, gas, and sewer lines. It is also used for rural irrigation, fire systems, electrical and communications wiring, and stormwater and drainage pipes.
Polyethylene is a tough and chemical-resistant material that has been used in a variety of applications. It is also corrosion-resistant and lightweight, which have all contributed to its increasing popularity as a cost-effective and durable gas and fluid piping system. Plastics Pipe Institute’s press release states that PE pipe has been used to transport water in Europe since the 1950s.
HDPE pipe can be joined with butt welding (electrofusion welding), socket welding (or extrusion welding). In these joints, pipes are heated during joining, resulting in a stronger joint than the pipe on the opposite side. PVC pipe joints do not require rubber seals or jointing chemicals. These methods can increase the possibility of failure and create health concerns. When installed in unstable soils, PE pipelines are less likely to fall victim to root intrusion problems.
Because the joints are fully load-resistant, there is no need for anchors. This makes it easier to dig near the pipeline for future high-pressure gas pipelines. PE Pipe coils make trenchless installation less dangerous and more friendly to the environment.
HDPE Pipe Systems are suitable for many applications. They can be used to standardize trenching for water mains. Horizontal drilling for electrical or telecommunications conduits is also available. According to HDPE manufacturers, HDPE systems cost-effectively install and offer long-term maintenance cost savings.
HDPE pipe has a very high life span and is extremely flexible. HDPE pipes can also be bent in place to a radius of 25x the nominal pipe diameter. This makes it much more economical than other pipe options. Some pipes require thrust blocks and restraints. Other pipes need glued fittings. HDPE pipes are excellent for installation in areas with high earthquake risk and dynamic soils because of their flexibility and resistance to impact. HDPE pipe can flow very well due to its smooth bore design and end-to-end jointing. HDPE pipes are resistant to corrosion in the environment and will keep their flow capability over time.
HDPE pipes can be used to transfer drinking waters as long as any debris is removed. HDPE pipe is highly resistant to chemicals. This allows it to be used in process plants, or around acidic or corrosive environments. HDPE is very resistant to heat and can carry fluids at much lower temperatures than metal pipes. This allows for a reduction in insulation needed to keep condensation from forming around the pipeline.
The life expectancy of HDPE Pipe
HDPE pipes can be expected to last for at least 50 years. However, they are much more likely to last 100 years. PIPA (Plastics Industry Pipe Association), together with the Plastic Pipe Institute PPI, have produced white papers on HDPE design lives. It mentions that people wrongly assume that plastic pipe systems will live for only fifty years because of the 50-year stress reduction data. These pipe systems can be expected to last 100 years. In Australia, PE pipes were developed in the mid-1900s. PE fittings can be used for irrigation or water supply as well as for fuel, gas, and other industrial applications. These 50 years are used to mislead people into believing that it means a 50+ year pipe life. Although the life expectancy for pipe systems that have been properly manufactured and installed cannot be predicted, it can be estimated to be over 100-years before major rehabilitation is needed. PIPA (Plastics Industry Pipe Association), together with the Plastic Pipe Institute has created technical white papers that discuss HDPE pipe design life. “Life Expectancy For Plastics Pipes” was the PIPA paper. It mentions that 50-year stress regression data leads people to believe that plastic pipe systems will live for only fifty years. These pipe systems are reasonably expected to last at least 100 more years.
PE pipes and fittings in Australia were invented during the mid-1900s. The PE pipes were used for irrigation or water supplies, but also fuel, gas, and other industrial applications. These 50 years are used to mislead people into believing that it means a 50+ year pipe lifespan. If pipe systems have been correctly manufactured, installed, and maintained, their actual life can not be predicted but can be expected over 100 years until major rehabilitation.
