HDPE Pipes for Water Supply
HDPE Pipes for Water Supply

Aqua Hub’s HDPE Pipes for water supply exist in  sizes of including 20mm, 25mm, 32mm,40mm,50mm, 63mm,75mm, 90mm, 110mm, and 250 mm.

High-density Polythene pipe (HDPE) consists of a material made of high-density polyethylene. HDPE pipes are more ideal than steel pipes due to their flexibility, corrosion resistance, and affordability in terms of cost and maintenance.

Key Features of HDPE Water Supply Pipes

  • Strength and tough nature to withstand high pressure and impact which helps implement long-term usability in carrying water.
  • Chemical corrosion resistance makes HDPE pipe suitable for use in drip irrigation and fertigation systems.
  • Anti-UV nature – The High-Density Polythene material has high resistance to Ultraviolet radiation is not prone to aging and is suitable for aging.
  • Flexibility – More flexibility and adjust to the uneven ground surface reducing the difficulty of installation.
  • Various ways of connection – HDPE can be connected through hot melt, welding, socket connection, and other methods to ensure the strength and sealing of the joints.
  • Environmentally friendly – HDPE pipes have fewer damaging effects on the environment
  • Wear Resistance – Smooth inner walls that reduce water flow resistance. Water can flow under high pressure without causing leaks or pipe wear and tear.

What Are the Main Uses of HDPE Pipes?

HDPE pipes are good for a variety of versatile applications in water supply and management.

  1. HDPE pipes are useful in moving water in most irrigation systems such as municipal supply connections
  2. Connections of drainage and sewage systems to remove wastewater and stagnant floods in residential.
  3. Application in agriculture for irrigation – They are ideal for use in farms and agricultural applications in irrigation.
  4. Transportation of chemicals and other pharmaceuticals in industries and plants.
  5. Cable and fiber optic protection – to Protect underground passing cables and optical fires from external damage.
  6. Can be applicable in the transportation of hot fluids and gases due to their non-corrosive and unreactive state.

How to Install and Connect HDPE Pipes for Water Supply

The main methods of connecting HDPE pipes are hot welding or butt fusion, and Electrofusion methods. The joints made are as strong and secure as the pipes thus ensuring a continuous leak-free water supply.

Various types of fittings can be used with HDPE pipe connections depending on the need. They include a tee for making branching connections, elbow for end connections, and straight connectors.

Requirements For Safe Use of HDPE Pipes

  1. Correct selection of HDPE Pipe material – You need to select the proper pipe as per the needs and specifications of HDPE pipes required for your water needs.
  2. Standard installation is essential for the long-term durability of HDPE pipes. Always adhere to the relevant industry standards and specifications.
  3. Regular Inspection and maintenance of HDPE Pipes is good for detecting and solving problems in your pipeline connection.

What is the Expected Durability of HDPE Pipes?

HDPE pipes are the most durable types of Water supply pipes with a longevity of more than 50 years.  The durability of HDPE pipes is always affected by a lot of factors such as installation conditions, usage environment, pipe quality, and maintenance.

Quality of the Material

Raw materials for manufacturing HDPE Pipes are virgin polyethylene compounds which happen to be of high resistance to aging.

Thickness and Diameter Size

The higher the thickness level of HDPE pipe, the more durable a pipe is. HDPE Pipes exist in diameter sizes of 16 to 2000 mm

Pressure Rating

The pressure range for HDPE Pipes exists in a range of PN10 to PN16.

Resistance to UV radiation

To choose HDPE pipes you need to consider whether it is resistant to UV radiation or not. UV-resistant pipes are better compared to other pipes since they work even in harsh weather conditions.

Factors to Consider when Choosing an HDPE Pipes Supplier in Kenya
