Replacement of a HDPE pipe for a Pexgol pipe
The client required to replace their current HDPE pipe lines where they transported slurry since they have frequent wear and leak issues on the joints. They used thermo-fusion welding, plus reinforcement with a Vitaulic 995 coupler. This sort of situation involved a considerable expense every time they failed, but they didn’t last long. The failures were every 3 to 4 months.
In order to perform a better job when transporting slurry, the client decided to install a Pexgol pipe of 1642 meters SDR 15 225 x 20.4.
Thanks to Pexgol’s comprehensive piping solution, abrasion issues were avoided, since its cross-linked material is between 4 to 10 times more resistant than other pipes materials.
The pipes were supplied n sections up to 240 meters each one, consequently the installation was simple improving the process’s security and therefore protecting the environment.
