The main application of the TKP-AR pipe is in the Mining Industry:
Most of the uses of the PE pipe in the mining industry are extremely related with the pipe’s ability to endure the strong abrasion attack of the fluids conveyed.
Slurries, Muds and even minerals in powder, are the must usual forms of the uids and the extremely smooth internal surface of the PE-Pipe has always be an advantage in the working life of the pipe.
Expressed weights are only approximate, and informative, they do not constitute a specification. In case of requiring a specific size not included in this table please contact TKP os visit www.tkp.mx
Where fluids are high in solids that cause abrasion wear.
PE-4710 WITH IDENTIFICATION WHITE STRIPES
INNER LAYER 20% THICKNESS SPECIAL FORMULATED POLYMER FOR HIGH RESISTANCE AGAINST ABRASSION, BLUE COLOR FOR CONTRAST AND DETECTION OF WARE.
The development of the pipe, TKP-AR, is a combination of technical efforts between TKP and our world leader supplier of plastics.
Our prototypes were carefully tested in the facilities of our world leader supplier, in Freeport Tx.
After more than 600,000 cycles, TKP – AR pipe, show the following results compared to a standard PE4710 pipe:

Abration Resistant HDPE
Designed for the most demanding conveying conditions in mining, metallurgy, dredging and other applications where fluids are high in solids that cause abrasion wear.
The specialized polymer of the inner wall has exceptional abrasion resistant properties allowing the designer to use a thinner wall.
The thinner wall allows for a larger ID which results in more flow and productivity.
The thinner wall results in lighter and is easier to handle in the field.
The resistance to abrasion increases the life of the pipe and fittings resulting in saving of down time during replacement.
