CHANGE OVER TO HDPE PIPES?
| Pipes made of GI
and SS are any time good. But as the cost
of steel is reaching the sky High Density Polyethylene
(HDPE) pipes become better alternatives as they
are cost effective and serve all purposes.
They are suitable for water supply, irrigation,
drip irrigation, chemicals, edible oil, fruit-pulp
and milk transportation.
2) They have a smooth internal surface, which avoids
frictional resistance to fluid flow, reducing pumping
power and saves energy.
3) The elastic nature of HDPE pipes can absorb the
stresses formed due to sub-soil movements or frequent
change in temperature and load.
4) They are lighter than conventional pipes. Hence
saves much of transportation cost, laying cost and
5) They offer simple, easy, quick and economical
method of jointing of pipes by Butt-Welding (Fusion
Technique) and detachable insert type joints (Sockets,
Bends, Tee, Elbow etc.)
