For piping material in mining applications, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) remains among the fastest growing solutions. It is lightweight, durable, it has strong resistance to corrosion, it’s flexible, and it’s also economical. With these qualities, it remains a top choice for buried and outdoor exposed pipelines.
HDPE has been around for decades and until recently, butt fusion was considered one of the top methods of joining. Butt fusion generally requires an installer who has received an extensive amount of training in order to ensure a fuse that is high quality. These individuals should have a thorough understanding of the techniques involved in pipe preparation and fusing, including important factors such as pipe scraping and cleaning.
