What is PE 100 in HDPE pipe?

PE100 is the third generation of pipe grade PE. It has an optimum balance of three key properties: Minimum Required Strength (MRS) – this provides long-term strength and creep resistance.

Why HDPE pipes are used?

HDPE pipe is used across the globe for applications such as water mains, gas mains, sewer mains, slurry transfer lines, rural irrigation, fire system supply lines, electrical and communications conduit, and stormwater and drainage pipes. …

What is the difference between HDPE pipe and PE pipe?

High-density polyethylene, known as HDPE plastic is a denser version of polyethylene typically used to make water and drain pipes because of its rigidness and crystalline structure. The main difference between HDPE and polyethylene or PE is that HDPE has PE as its base.

Are pipes measured by inside diameter?

When it comes to measurement of pipe, it is measure by the inside diameter, often called the nominal diameter. The outside of the pipe is always larger than the inside. The difference between the inside diameter (ID) and the outside diameter (OD) is due to the thickness of the wall.

How do you measure pipe threads?

When measuring a female pipe thread (FPT), measure the OD of the pipe itself and subtract ¼ inch to find the correct pipe thread size. Perhaps even easier than this is to purchase a measuring tool called a caliper that will measure OD and inside diameter (ID).
