What is the difference between HDPE pipe and PE pipe?

What is the difference between HDPE pipe and PE pipe? Below IFAN takes you to know more. This is our Facebook Website:www.facebook.com.

Different materials are used: the main raw material of HDPE pipe is high-density polyethylene, while that of pe pipe is polyethylene plastic.
Different uses: HDPE pipes are usually only used to transport gas, while pe pipes can be used to transport liquefied petroleum gas and artificial gas in addition to gas.
Different densities: The range of HDPE tubes is larger than that of pe tubes in terms of density.

What are the advantages of PE pipes?

Good wear resistance and stress crack resistance

Experiments have proved that this kind of pipe is very good in terms of wear resistance. It can be said that compared with other pipes, it is several times more wear-resistant. At the same time, stress-cracking resistance is also good. Due to its high hardness, even if this pipe is used in relatively cold weather, it is not easy to crack.

Long service life and strong corrosion resistance

The molecule of PE pipe will be relatively high, so it has an anti-aging effect, and its service life will be relatively long. If it is used under normal temperature conditions, its service life can reach more than 50 years. In addition, the corrosion resistance is also very good, because its molecular structure is very stable, so it is not easy to be corroded by other substances when it is buried in the ground.

Good flexibility

PE pipe is a kind of pipe with high toughness, so it is easy to bend when laying. It is precisely because of its good flexibility that it can reduce the number of pipes used during installation and ease the difficulty of laying.

Good impact resistance at low temperature

PE pipes have good low-temperature resistance and can be used in extremely low environments, so this pipe is also suitable for northern regions. However, when laying PE pipes outdoors in winter, antifreeze work must be done, otherwise, the pipes will be easily cracked by freezing.
