4 Recommended PE Drainage Pipes

Posted on: April 15, 2021 by Madison Pipe Industry, 9 min read

PE has a variety of different drainage pipes. The useful of them is different, but the function is the same - Drain Water. The installation of the drainage pipe is of great significance, because with it, the situation of flooding will not occur. So what types of PE drainage pipes are there? The following we will recommend 4 common PE drainage pipes to you.

At present, there are many varieties of PE drainage pipes, mainly including: HDPE double-wall corrugated pipe, PE hollow-wall winding pipe, HDPE steel belt reinforced polyethylene spiral corrugated pipe and plastic steel winding pipe. Due to different uses, their specifications are also different.

HDPE Double Wall Corrugated Pipe

Double-wall corrugated pipe is a new type of lightweight pipe made of high-density polyethylene. It has the characteristics of light weight, high pressure resistance, good toughness, fast construction and long life. Its excellent pipe wall structure design is compatible with other structures. Compared with other pipes, the cost is greatly reduced. And because the connection is convenient and reliable, it is widely used.

HDPE double-wall corrugated pipe


  1. Unique product structure and strong resistance to pressure.
  2. The inner wall is smooth and the excess flow is large.
  3. The product is easy to connect, the interface is well sealed, corrosion resistance, zero leakage, no scaling, and avoid secondary pollution. It is an ideal "green pipe".
  4. The product has good flexural properties and can adapt to uneven settlement of the soil.
  5. Long service life, buried in the ground for more than 50 years.
  6. The product is light in weight and convenient in construction, which can reduce construction costs and shorten the construction period.
  7. At a speed of 15 feet per second, the wear resistance is 3 to 5 times higher than that of ordinary or fine-grained steel pipes.

PE Hollow Wall Winding Pipe

Hollow-wall wound pipe is a kind of pipe made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and formed by winding and welding. Due to its unique forming process, it can produce pipes with a diameter of up to 3 meters, which is difficult to complete by other production processes. Its excellent welding performance not only guarantees the product molding process and product quality, but also provides a variety of reliable methods for construction connection. At the same time, this is also an important reason why leakage rarely occurs. This is also mask it has the unique environmental protection function that other pipes do not have. It provides a very effective method for pollution prevention and control that people are currently concerned about.

HDPE Steel Belt Reinforced Spiral Corrugated Pipe

It uses U-shaped steel strip composite PE material that greatly increase the ring stiffness of the pipe without increasing the cost. And the strength of the pipe is greatly improved compared with the winding pipe and the carat pipe under the same weight. It can solve a series of problems such as heavy load. The advantages of large-diameter pipes are more obvious. The pipe diameters are from DN300mm to DN2400mm, and the ring stiffness is maintained above 8KN/m2, which is lighter and stronger than cement pipes and other plastic pipes.

HDPE Steel Belt Reinforced Spiral Corrugated pipe


  1. Chemical Resistance: not corroded by pollution, waste water and chemicals, and not corroded by rotten substances in the soil.
  2. Impact Resistance: The pipe wall adopts a "U"-shaped structure, which is impact resistant and pressure resistant. The foundation will not break even when the foundation is sinking, and it has strong resilience after deformation and has good adaptability to the foundation.
  3. Anti-aging: The pipe is usually black, which can withstand direct sunlight during storage and construction.
  4. Cold Resistance: The pipe will not be frozen, cracked, expanded and leaked in an environment of -60°C.
  5. Light Weight: It's easy to transport and easy to construct. The weight is 1/8 of the weight of the cement pipe. The buried pipe only needs an excavator and does not require large equipment.
  6. Convenient Connection: The pipes can be connected outside the ditch first, and pushed into the ditch with an excavator, reducing engineering time and costs.
  7. Superior Abrasion Resistance: It is more abrasion-resistant than steel pipes and cement pipes, and has a stronger capacity to transport domestic water waste slag.
  8. Superior Drainage Fluidity: smooth inside, reducing friction, and fast drainage.
  9. Economy: Low construction, management and maintenance costs.
  10. Environmental Impact: HDPE is a non-toxic raw material, harmless to the environment such as land, and can be recycled.
  11. Good Stability of The Pipeline System: The circular outer rib structure of the pipe not only increases the ring stiffness of the pipe, but also has root resistance, which solves the problems of tension and jacking caused by the longitudinal displacement of the pipe.
  12. Completely Reliable Ring Stiffness: Since the elastic modulus ratio of the two materials of steel and plastic is greater than 200, the weight ratio is greater than 7.85, compared with pure plastic pipes, steel belt reinforcement can easily make pipes (especially large diameter pipes) have Sufficient safe and reliable ring stiffness and relatively high stiffness-to-weight ratio.
