1. Power plant: UHMWPE Pipe was used in domestic power plants for the first time in 2000. Now, the fly ash, circulating water, chemical water, and fire-fighting water transport of power plants have already adopted a large number of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipes, especially hydraulic ash drainage pipes. Seriously, the thickness of the scale layer can reach 50-80mm in one year and acid pickling must be carried out every two years. The running cost is high and production is delayed. In addition to fouling of the ash flushing pipe, the wear is also severe. The life of ordinary steel elbows is only three months. If ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene elbows are used, it can be used for 9 months to 1 year. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene wear-resistant pipes can also be used for red mud transportation.

2. Salt industry and salt chemical industry: Corrosion and abrasion problems exist in the raw salt pneumatic transportation of refined salt plants, and the salt chemical brine pipelines. The underground chemical pipelines of salt chemicals are damaged by using carbon steel pipes for several months. Asbestos cement pipes 1-3 It was scrapped in the year, and the UHMW-PE pipes have corrosion resistance and can be used in the salt industry.

3. Dredging and salt lake dredging: Traditional steel and iron pipes have the disadvantages of easy corrosion, fast wear, heavy, difficult to disassemble, high maintenance and repair costs, especially the sediment content of the Yellow River is as high as 50% or more, and the wear is severe. Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene pipes not only have very good abrasion resistance, low friction resistance, corrosion resistance, and light weight, they are ideal for sand conveying and mud discharging pipes.

4. Other industries: (1) Seawater utilization: Coastal cities transport a large amount of seawater as an indirect cooling water source for power, chemical, machinery, textile, video and other industries. Due to the serious corrosion of seawater, anticorrosive measures must be taken, but the use of ultra-high Molecular weight polyethylene pipes can directly solve the problem. (2) Chemical industry: Chemical plants are highly corrosive in the transportation of various acids, alkalis, and salts. Most of them use expensive materials such as stainless steel. Many normal temperature pipelines are replaced with ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipes, which can greatly reduce costs. (3) Pneumatic conveying of raw grain in grain processing plants, using steel pipes or iron pipes not only makes a lot of noise, but also causes severe wear. For example, wheat mills in wheat flour mills, iron pipes wear out in 4 months, flour mills in Beijing and Qingdao use ultra-high molecular weight The polyethylene pipe is lined, and the wear resistance is increased by 7-10 times. (4) Pneumatic conveyance of refined salt, starch, etc. in the food industry, using ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipes instead of stainless steel, the cost is greatly reduced.
