Insulated HDPE Pipe and Fittings
Worldwide HDPE pipe has been used in some of the harshest environments and conditions possible. To help HDPE push its boundaries into even harsher conditions it can be externally insulated with a urethane foam to help protect a pipeline from freezing. HDPE pipe is the most common type of insulated pipe and is also the most forgiving to install because of its flexibility, abrasion resistance, and durability.
HDPE pipe insulation can come in various insulation thicknesses and outer jacket types from galvanized steel, wrapped polyethylene, or a tapped jacket. In additional to insulating HDPE pipe, an insulated pipeline can also be paired with an electrical heat trace system to design a freeze protection system that will protect a pipeline for its entire operation. Contact Sandale for any design or estimating related assistance for insulated HDPE pipe.
Sandale is a leading supplier for pre-insulated HDPE fittings and polymer coated insulation kits. Larger diameter custom HDPE fittings with tangents can be pre-insulated, leaving only insulation fusion joints to be completed in the field. Pre-insulated HDPE fittings saves time on installation and provides a superior freeze protection solution to a HDPE system.
Sandale also supplies HDPE fitting insulation kits that can be precisely measured and fabricated for in-field installation using a polymer coated half shell insulation kit with a wrap around heat shrink sleeve. Sandale can also assist with custom insulation kits and fittings for any size range of HDPE pipe and fittings.
