HDPE pipes are High-Density Polyethylene pipes that are more flexible than other plastic pipes and help in the traverse of fluids for industrial and commercial purposes. The high-density polyethylene has a strong molecular bond that improves stress impact and tensile strength of the pipes making it suitable for high-pressure pipelines. It is often used as a replacement for concrete pipes and steel pipes.
Utkarsh manufactures HDPE pipes from PE products available in sizes from 20mm to 315mm in PE 63, PE 80 & PE 100 grades conforming to national & international. These pipes are effortlessly used in numerous applications.
Before we delve into the applications of HDPE pipes it is important to know about the benefits that make them suitable for those applications. HDPE pipes have high tensile strength, lightweight and durable.
The pipes are resistant to microbial attack, corrosion from corrosive substances like acid, base, and salts. Furthermore, require fewer fittings and can be welded into seamless leak-free pipes. Owing to these advantages, HDPE pipes are used in an array of applications.
India is an agrarian country and to ensure effective transportation of water in the crop field, HDPE pipes are used. It is largely used in the agricultural industry for flow line irrigation, tube well pipes, drip irrigation, and pesticide spraying system. Food-grade polyethylene virgin material is used during the manufacturing process of HDPE pipes, this is why these pipes are safe for the supply of water to crop fields.
These pipes not only carry fluid of any kind from one point to another, but it is also corrosion and abrasion-resistant making them a better choice for passing effluents, acids, alkalis, and slurry in industries. Properties like corrosion resistance, impact resistance, flexibility, resistance to chemical contamination, and slow crack growth make it suitable for fluid and gas piping systems in industries.
Industries that are predominantly using HDPE pipes are the fertilizer, pulp, and papermaking industry, power plants, petrochemical, glass, plastic resin manufacturers, and many more.

These pipes are joined by welding. Butt welding, electrofusion, and socket welding are some of the methods of joining HDPE pipes. As these pipes do not need anchors or thrust restraints for joining, these pipes are better for underwater applications. These pipes do not react with salt water, or industrial effluents which is why it is used in submarines and underwater pipelines.
While renewing the existing pipeline, there is enough evidence that supports using HDPE pipes reduces expenditure and installation time. These pipes are used in sewers, drinking lines, and main drinking lines. The pipes have a low friction coefficient and low flow resistance, ensuring resistance free-flow from the pipes. It is safe to use between temperature -220 degrees Fahrenheit to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
