The plastic pipe industry develops very fast recent years. While more and more gas stations are now using new material instead of steel pipes. That is the gas station composite hose. But why are the new gas station HDPE hose so popular? Then next, let me show you the advantages of HDPE underground hose.
First of all, gas station composite hose has great property advantage
The gas barrier property of gas station HDPE pipe is 100 times higher than that of PA hose. While it is 10,000 times higher than PE pipe and PP pipe. Besides, the EVOH layer has excellent mechanical strength, wear and cold resistance. In addition, it has strong surface strength. It also has good barrier property against gas, aroma, solvent, etc.
Traditional oil pipe for the petrol station is steel pipe. However, the conditions underground is really harsh. Because after a long time, the steel tube will be corroded. Then there will be oil leakage problem. While it not only cause loss, but also pollute the soil. What’s more, steel pipe system is really complex. Thus you have to make a huge project to replace the new pipe. While that will take much of time and money.
But with a petrol station pipe UPP pipe, you never have to worry about this problem. Because it adopts composite material and there are 7 layers for a pipe. Special material offers it great corrosion and oil resistance. Thus it can work underground over 10 years. What’s more, for a more safe work, the HDPE petrol pipework system adopts the two-layer structure. That means there are two pipes in a pipeline system. While the structure is that a larger size HDPE pipe covers a smaller size one. Then the oil deliver work can be more safe. At the same time, the service life of the HDPE gas station pipe will be more longer.
