What is HDPE

HDPE is an incredibly versatile thermoplastic polymer that is derived from petroleum. Its versatility makes it an ideal product for diverse applications such as piping, cutting boards, plastic bottles and bleach bottles. The two key features of this material are its high strength-to-density ratio and tensile strength. 

When used for making pipes, HDPE lends its properties to help create high-pressure pipelines that can transfer fluid and gas. HDPE pipes are heavy-duty and can be used in various applications such as water drainage and transportation.

Applications of HDPE

As mentioned above, our HDPE piping is highly versatile. Many industries are turning to it because of its cost-effectiveness, extreme temperature resistance, UV resistance, durability and more. These benefits make HDPE better than other materials. Some common uses of HDPE piping are:

  • Slurry pipelines 

  • Sewer mains

  • Rural irrigation

  • Electrical conduits

  • Water mains

  • Gas mains

  • Fire system supply lines

  • Liquor, bleaching, and caustic acid lines

  • Power plants

  • Stormwater and drainage pipes

The resistance, low weight and durability of HDPE piping have made it popular in projects that require a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly transfer of gases and liquids. These pipes can last more than 50 years, which is why they're a valuable investment for any operation. Whether you're looking to replace your ageing concrete or steel mains pipelines or need new piping installation, our HDPE services in BC would be a great fit for your project.  

 

Why Use HDPE Piping in Nanaimo, Invermere, Kamloops, Kelowna and Other Cities in BC? 

 

HDPE piping is well-known for its high strength-to-density ratio, making it an excellent choice for projects such as municipal, energy, geothermal, industrial, marine, mining, landfill, HVAC gas, oil, and agricultural. It is also chemical and corrosion-resistant and can easily be fused for use in any length of piping you need. HDPE has strong tensile strength and can withstand higher temperatures. Its smooth surface also allows for a higher volumetric flow rate than your typical steel pipe at the same pressure. Its lightweight nature means that you don't have to use heavy lifting equipment to get it into place.


It is useful to use HDPE in Victoria, Trail, Creston, Cranbrook, Castlegar and surrounding areas because of the variety of conditions they present. Our directional drilling methods allow us to install HDPE in virtually any location with minimal disruption to the surrounding landscapes, environment, or structures. It is a versatile type of piping because it is easily fusible without losing its strength. Thanks to electrofusion, each joint can be solidified to the same level of strength as the rest of the pipe. This makes it better for the environment, as it means fewer accidents and, therefore, less environmental impact and disasters to contend with before, during, and after installation.

FAQs

Here are frequently asked questions related to HDPE pipes:

  • How Deep Can GPR Scanning Locate Target Utilities?
    The depth of penetration of GPR locators depends on the material being scanned and the type of antenna. A low-frequency antenna can locate deeper targets, but outputs result in a lower resolution. Drier materials, such as sandy soils, provide great survey resolution at depths up to 30 feet, while heavy clay-based soils and materials are difficult to read and penetrate and may be limited to a few feet.
  • When You Locate Underground Utilities, Can You Determine What Type of Utility It Is?
    In most cases, we are able to do this by tracing the utility and reading any identifying features present on the surface, like valves, meters, control boxes and others, to determine the nature and type of underground utility. ​If we are unable to directly connect to the utility, or if it doesn't have any surface features, we can identify its presence and orientation but it is difficult for us to determine whether the piping is gas, water, storm etc at the time of locating.
  • Can We Help Locate and Mark All Buried Utilities at Your Work Site?
    We can locate the public or private utility infrastructure as part of our underground utility locator process.
