Exploring the advantages, applications, and sustainability of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) piping

Discover key challenges faced in installing HDPE gas distribution pipes through Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and learn how to address issues such as bentonite contamination, gouges, pipe relaxation, and alignment. Explore effective procedures and precautions to ensure the integrity of HDPE electrofusion joints, enabling eco-friendly installation methods for gas distribution systems in environmentally sensitive areas.
Learn about the advantages of using high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe for your piping system, including its ability to bend to a radius 20-25 times the diameter of the pipe, eliminating the need for fittings and reducing labor costs. HDPE is also more durable, flexible and adaptable to changing soil conditions and seismic activity than legacy piping materials.

Municipal Water
Learn why municipal water systems are turning to HDPE piping systems as the cure for failing ductile iron piping (DIP) systems. HDPE pipes have a failure rating of one in ten million, require little or no maintenance, and are resistant to corrosion and tuberculation. With reduced time and cost of installation, increased worker safety, and minimal environmental disruption, it's no wonder HDPE is the better choice. Read on to see why ISCO is the prescription for your outdated municipal water system.
