Attributes of UHMWPE Pipe
Shandong Buoy and Pipe Industry Co., Ltd. has introduced the international advanced concept and adopted the pioneering technology to produce the continuous fiber reinforced polyethylene water supply pipe(the blue pipe), which has won the national invention patent. It is the best water supply pipeline for long-distance and large diameter (tube diameter 400mm∽4000mm) in China.
The Performance of the China Blue pipe:
1. Low cost – the comprehensive cost of the blue pipeline with diameter larger than 1200 mm is at least 20% less than other pipelines in market.
2. Short construction period - the welding time for one of the blue pipe’s interface is 15~25 minutes; the earth excavation work and construction cover area is 50% less than the conventional pipeline, which help reduce the construction compensation greatly;
3. Anti-settling --- no need to do any treatment on the blue pipeline foundation, no need to add expansion joints, which helps reduce the construction costs effectively. It is especially suitable for high water level, silt land and easy settlement environment;
4. Corrosion resistance ---The blue pipe need not to do any anti-corrosion treatment, suitable for harsh environments.
5. Non leakage - The blue pipe interface adopts socket electric hot-melt welding, which fundamentally guarantees no water leakage.
6. High pressure resistant ability--- The blue pipe’s burst pressure is 4 times of working pressure;
7. Environment friendly---Protect the water from the secondary pollution;
8. Light weight---The weight of the blue pipe is 12% of the PCCP pipe and 15% of the cast iron pipe for the same length, which will help reduce the construction cost effectively.
9. High profitability---There is non leakage and maintenance free for the blue pipe, so its operating cost is 60% less than other pipelines.
10. Long life using---Minimum working life of the blue pipe is 60 years.
