Unique Usage of High Density Polyethylene Piping Systems


Materials and Their Characteristics # 1985 York

A surge in industrial development in Richards Bay over the past three years prompted the Government to establish the Nllatuze Water Board with powers to control water supply and effluent disposal over a 20 !a wide coastal strip stretching 50 km from Mtunzini in the south to Kwambonambi in the north. The applications for EHMWHD PE liners as a solution for pipeline corrosion problems are broad and diverse. They include salt water injection disposal, acid water pipelines, slurry pipelines, gas production, offshore pipelines, and C02 pipelines for generation, injection production and recovery. This type of polyethylene is a particularly tough, relatively notch insensitive, inert material which does not rust, rat, pit or corrode. Its material properties match the rigors of installation and production abuse to provide a pre-inspected holiday-free lining continuous from the point of origin to the paint of delivery.
