Industrial Polyethylene Piping System Ideal for Extremely Low Temperatures

February 22, 2010
The chemically-resistant piping system is available in a complete range of pipe, fittings, valves and fusion joining technologies. The new system features mechanical strength and high-impact resistance throughout a wide temperature range and is especially-suited for cold temperature applications as low as -58 degrees F. Suitable applications include fluid transport for process cooling water, industrial water treatment, bulk water distribution and chemical processing across a variety of industries. The new system is available in pipe sizes from 2- to 36-inch with molded fittings from 2-to12-inch and fabricated fittings from 14-inch to 36-inch. Also offered is a full line of compatible sized valves including compact tee, ball, diaphragm, butterfly and check styles. Installation is easily performed using one of three of the company’s fusion joining technologies, depending on pipe diameter. All three technologies allow a simple, safe and secure heat fusion joining process while providing industry leading controlled butt fusion and weld traceability that meet the expectations of existing customers. The system also demonstrates excellent abrasion resistance, which allows for use in transporting brine solutions, dissolved solids and slurries. Other outstanding performance characteristics include low weight, flexibility and compatibility with a broad range of chemicals. Conforms to ASTM, NSF and FDA standards.
