Water and Industrial Use: Check these Faqs Answered by One of the Leading HDPE Pipe Manufacturers

Water is one of the most important resources that industries across all sectors need. It is used in every step of the manufacturing and production processes.  Food, paper, chemicals and refined petroleum are some of the most water-intensive industries. 
As one of the leading HDPE pipe manufacturers, here we share you with some of the FAQs and their answers on water and industrial use:

Question 1:  What are some industrial uses of water?
The most common industrial uses of water are:

  1. In industries, water is used for cooling machinery or equipment. . Heat removed from one medium is transferred to another medium, or process fluid.
  2. Water is also used as a raw material in many industries, such as textile manufacturing and food processing.
  3. Water plays an important role in energy production, both through hydroelectric power plants and thermal power plants.
  4. Water is also used for a variety of transportation needs, such as shipping and irrigation.

Question 2: What kind of water is used for industrial purposes?

Most industries tend to use mainly freshwater, as salt water is unsuitable for most industrial applications because it corrodes the machinery’s metal parts

Question 3: Why HDPE Pipes are used for industrial applications?

Water is a raw material used in high quantities in many industries, from extraction activities to refineries. HDPE pipes are used for carrying water and some other low-temperature liquids. Here are some of the features of HDPE pipes, which make them an ideal choice for industrial applications:

  1. Corrosion and chemical resistance: Corrosion resistance is one of the best qualities of HDPE pipes. It offers excellent corrosion resistance to acids, features, salts and bases and remains unaffected by bacteria and fungi. This is why our HDPE pipes can carry wastewater, slurries, chemicals, hazardous wastes, and compressed gases, making them ideal for various industrial applications.
  2. Easy to install and handle: HDPE pipes are easy to install because their density is lesser than steel. During the time of installation of HDPE pipes, they do not demand heavy lifting equipment. Also, these pipes are flexible and can be bent easily.
  3. Low installation costs: HDPE pipes need fewer fittings and can be welded into a leak-free piping system.  HDPE pipes involve lower installation costs and labour expenses.


Question4: Are HDPE pipes safe for use in potable water applications?
Yes, HDPE pipes are ideal for potable water. Our HDPE pipes meet IS 4427 standards for potable water.

Question 5: Can HDPE be used for the agricultural sector?
Yes, opting for an HDPE pipe for agriculture is a good idea. HDPE pipes are becoming increasingly popular in the agricultural sector due to their many benefits:

  1. HDPE pipes are deductible: Unlike ordinary plastic pipes, HDPE pipes can handle recurring surges of water flow.
  2. HDPE pipes are leak-proof: HDPE pipes can be joined by heat, giving a leak-proof plumbing system.
  3. HDPE pipes have good bendability: HDPE can be bent on site to a radius 25 more than a normal pipe. This makes it ideal  for rough terrains.

Question: 7Which are the best HDPE pipe manufacturers?

We, at Utkarsh India, manufacture high-quality HDPE pipes. Our pipes are ideal for agricultural applications. They can also be used in municipal, industrial, mining and landfill applications. It has been tested and proven effective for surface, above ground and floating applications.
