In the last piece we lean the reasons that PE pipe appears in water supply system. This time let’s the advantages of it.
Actually, PE pipe is a new product for municipal water supply. As the international standard, there are five grades for PE pipe. They are PE32, PE40, PE63, PE80 and PE100 respectively. While the material for water supply is PE80 or PE100. Because they are the best level.
Advantages of PE pipe
Corrosion resistance and never scaling
PE is a high molecular material with non-polar structure. It will not scale and rust, germs and other micro creatures can’t grow as well. Besides, there will not be terrible smell and floc will never appears. What’s more, it has great corrosion and chemical resistance. It will not react with any chemicals in the environment and buildings. Moreover, it meets the healthy requirements and is the ideal material for drinking water.
Tight fittings connection
PE has great hot melt, which means the material of fittings and the pipe itself the same. It achieves the unify of fittings and pipe. Besides, the leakage rate of the hot melt is much lower than metal pipe.
Light in weight
The weight of PE pipe is just 1/10 of steel, so it can save most of the labor cost and machine cost. It will also helps reduce the construction period and improve the efficiency.
Long working life
The working life of zinc coated pipe is about 10-15 years. But it could be 50 years of PE pipe. Besides, it’s easy to recycle without any damage, which is helpful to the environmental protection.
Low drag Coefficient
The inner tube is smooth and the diameter of pipe and fittings are the same. Therefore, the part drag coefficient is lower than steel pipe.
Fit the changes of base
The elongation at break of PE pipe exceeds 50% and it’s highly flexible. Thus oy can fit the uneven subsidence of base.
For above advantages, PE pipe gradually replaces the steel pipe for water supply. OrientFlex has work on pipe and hoses since 2006.
