Mexico | 2017

Working conditions:

Pipes used:
Pexgol SDR 6 110x18.3
Compressed air transportation
600 meters

The Challenge

The client decided to replace their current HDPE pipe lines which transported compressed air at 60°C to 71°C / 140° F to 159.8°F.
The reason for replacing the HDPE pipes was serious leaks on the thermo-fusion joints.
As one possible reason for these failures, the client pointed out that the maximum allowed temperature that the HDPE pipes is just up to 45°C / 113°F.

The Solution

In order to solve this problem, Saucito Mine decided to replace their HDPE pipes for Pexgol pipes.
Beside their high temperatures resistence up to 110°C / 230°F, Pexgol pipes are not connected by thermo-fusion joints. They are supplied in 600 meters long sections with very few connections. 
The installation was fast and efcient and no sophisticated tools were necessary.
