A key goal of industrial piping is to ensure long term durability and efficiency. That partially means making sure to use pipe that is able to resist abrasion and corrosion and will not allow for leaks. With so many factors to keep in mind, which industrial pipe works best?
Iron pipe is typically used for transporting sewage and water. Its strength is better than thermoplastic pipe but it can corrode and it may be considered pricey. To protect the pipe, a polyethylene wrap is worth looking into as it can help with corrosion.
Lightweight, strong, and durable are a trio of adjectives frequently used to describe high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. This type of pipe is used in scenarios involving telecommunications, water main, and more. The flexibility makes it useful in installations that are trench-less and it can resist corrosion. However, it is susceptible to hydrocarbons and you may need to choose something like Fusion-Tech UV Black Piping to ensure the pipe can withstand the effects of ultraviolet rays.
PVC and RCP pipe are other options to look into.
