Thermoplastic piping systems are suitable for industrial processes and water treatment applications.
Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are nonconductive and thus unaffected by electrolytic or galvanic corrosion. Consequently, PVC and HDPE pipes, pipe fittings, and piping accessories do not require expensive anti-corrosion coatings. Additionally, they are chemically non-reactive and abrasion-resistant. Plants can therefore transport various chemicals and abrading slurries through plastic piping systems without negatively impacting the integrity of such piping systems.
Plastic pipes have multiple colors and sizes, making them easy to identify and segregate according to function. Moreover, they are available as integrated piping systems, ensuring there are fittings and accessories to suit unique requirements. This reduces, maybe even eliminates, the need for non-plastic parts, thus lessening the likelihood of corrosion due to the joining of disparate piping materials.
Plastic pipes are lightweight, weather-resistant, durable, and easily fabricated and installed. They can also be joined in a variety of ways. These make thermoplastics a cost-effective alternative to other piping materials. They cost less to install and are also less costly to transport and maintain.
The optimum flow characteristics of plastic pipes and the advanced joining methodologies that minimize leaks make plastic pipes particularly suitable for sewer applications and wastewater transport for treatment.
Aside from water treatment, plastic pipes have other industrial applications. They can be used for industrial drainage systems handling acid waste. Plastic pipes can also be utilized in chemical process piping systems designed to convey or transport chemicals required for plants’ chemical processes.
Electronics and semiconductor plants also require ultra-pure water in their processes to minimize product contamination. Plastic pipes make excellent materials for high-purity piping systems.
Mining companies often integrate plastic piping networks in their operations as well. Plastic pipes typically form part of tailings discharge, dewatering, and smelting systems.
Plastic piping has many other industrial applications. There can be plastic piping systems in facilities involved in desalination, original equipment manufacturing, food and beverage production, surface plating operations, and oil and gas exploration.
