As a High Flexibility UHMWPE Pipe Manufacturers, share with you.

The ore powder and slurry transportation pipelines of the concentrator have high requirements on the wear resistance of the pipelines. When transporting mineral powder, due to severe wear, the service life of steel pipes is generally short. Now many coal mines and mines transport high-density media generally have the problem of easy wear of pipes. Appropriately reducing the loss of pipes has become a company’s benefit. Effective Ways. The use of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene wear-resistant pipes can significantly increase the service life of the pipes and reduce maintenance workload.

UHMWPE wear-resistant pipes have the advantages of wear resistance, corrosion resistance, impact resistance, self-lubricating, anti-adhesion, sanitary and non-toxic, shock absorption, good noise reduction, good environmental stress cracking resistance, and convenient installation. Now many concentrators and mines choose to use ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipes as ore powder and slurry transportation pipelines, showing the advantages of "energy saving, environmental protection, economy and high efficiency" of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipes.

For pipelines with high pressure requirements, you can choose steel-lined ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene composite pipes. The pipeline uses ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipes as lining materials and steel pipes (welded pipes, spiral pipes, seamless pipes, etc.) for pressure protection The outer pipe is composited, and it can withstand higher pressure and temperature on the basis of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene wear-resistant pipe, and has a longer service life. 

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene wear-resistant pipeline technology is now very mature, and many projects have adopted this wear-resistant pipeline, which is a pipeline product with moderate price and excellent performance. The following describes the advantages of UHMWPE wear-resistant pipelines in the construction process.

The construction efficiency is high. The ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene wear-resistant pipe is light in weight and flexible, which is convenient for loading and unloading, transportation, installation and use, which can greatly improve the construction efficiency of the project and reduce the transportation and installation costs.
