PVC / HDPE PIPES
PVC/HDPE Pipes are produced by extrusion process followed by calibration to ensure internal diameter with smooth internal boxes. These pipes are generally come in lengths of 6 meter. A wide range of injection moulded fittings, including tee, elbow, reducers, caps, pipe saddler, insert and three adaptors for pipe sizes 15-150 mm are available. The PVC pipes are much lighter than cast iron or A.C. pipes. Because of their light weight properties, PVC pipes are easy to handle, transport and install. Solvent cementing techniques for jointing PVC pipes lengths is cheaper, efficient and simpler. PVC pipes are used widely in a variety of applications such as electric cable for residential buildings, household electrical appliances, cable coverings insulating tapes, switch boxes, wire covering and protecting tubes for power and telecommunications cable. Pipes made from Polyethylene (PE) is a cost effective answer for a number of piping problems in Metropolitan, Municipal, Industrial, Underwater, Mining, Landfill Gas extraction, Cable duct and agricultural applications. It has been tested and proven effective for underground, above ground, surface, under water as well as floating pipe applications. Polyethylene pipes both High Density (HDPE) and Medium Density (MDPE) can carry potable water, wastewater, slurries, chemicals, hazardous wastes, cables and compressed gases as well as oils. Polyethylene pipes have a long and successful service experience to the gas oil, mining and water utility industries. PE pipes have the lowest repair frequency per Kilometer of pipe per year compared with all other pipe materials used for urban water and gas distribution. The use of PVC/HDPE pipes is increasing rapidly, so there is wide scope for new entrepreneurs to venture into this project.
