uhmwpe pipe as slurry lines
compared with HDPE pipe as slurry lines, the following characteristic of uhmwpe pipe is of vital importance.
Integrated stub end and pipe body
UHMWPE pipe stub is made by heating and flanging to pipe body ends, the stub is formed on the basis of pipe body itself. There is no inner cord generated by thermofusion as in HDPE case. The inner cord generates encrustation and corrosion accumulation, causing the total collapse of the pipe or the whole system. While using UHMWPE pipe, it can help avoid such problem.
Other characteristic of uhmwpe pipe that makes it superior than other material pipes:
Anti low temperature:
uhmwpe property remains stable at minus 269 degress, according to survey to uhmwpe materials. The real application case till now is at -40℃ in northern part of China, near Mongolia.
Smooth surface,no scaling and less pumping cost:
UHMWPE pipes have very smooth surface with low friction loss and high flow rate.
It helps save maintenance cost of acid cleaning pipes, and less pumping cost
