High Temperature Resistant HDPE
Designed to resist higher temperatures, TKP-TR expands the application field of the PE pipe up to 180ºF. The TKP PE pipeline includes pipes and fittings in diameters from 3 " to 20“ IPS, DR from 7 to 11.
Using a special polymeric compound developed by our world leader supplier of plastics.
Resists higher permissible operating temperatures compared to standard PE4710 products.
Higher standards in properties: Chlorine resistance, high quality water supply, chemical resistance and resistance to crack propagation.
Non-stopping operation at temperatures from -45ºC (-49ºF) to 82ºC (180ºF).
As well as PE4710 pipes, TKP-TR follows same fusion parameters.
TKP offers pipe sizes from 3“ to 20” and of course TKP-FIT offering fabricated fittings.
A considerable amount of water is required for the drilling and explode of the oil and gas wells.
For example, during the Fracking exploitation process:
Water with different chemicals are pumped into the well and then are recovered with different chemical components, including dry natural gas, wet natural gas, crude oil, etc... and at higher temperature depending the depth of the well. TKP-TR is the right choice: applying all the qualities of the HDPE pipe, plus the improved resistance to chemicals and temperatures.
** NOTE: The applicable codes for the conduction of fluids with chemical substances must be reviewed. In the case o f the USA, driving a fluid with more than 2% or more of hydrocarbons must apply an additional factor of 50% less working pressure.
The main field of application for the TKP-TR pipe is in the energy industry
