Polyethylene Pipe (PE Pipe), or poly pressure pipe as it is commonly known, is a commonly used piping system for fluids and gasses throughout Australia.
Polyethylene’s toughness, immunity from corrosion, excellent resistance to chemicals and low weight have contributed to its continued appeal for use in situations where cost-effective and reliable piping systems are required.
Acu-Tech Piping Systems manufactures robust high-performance polyethylene pressure pipes for a wide range of applications. Because PE pressure pipe is so flexible and workable, it is used across many different industries, including mining, plumbing & drainage, infrastructure projects, industrial process plants, HVAC, irrigation & rural farming, and communications and power conduits.
Made from PE100 polyethylene material, Acu-Tech manufactures HDPE pressure pipes designed specifically for the following systems:
- Acu-Water (drinking water pipeline)
- Acu-Fire (fire main pipeline)
- Acu-Gas (gas pipeline)
- Acu-Therm (above ground pipeline)
- Acu-Drain (wastewater pipeline)
- Acu-Power (electrical conduit)
- Acu-Rural (imperial pipe for rural areas)
- Acu-Black (UV-resistant PE100 pipeline)
- Acu-Comms (communications conduit)
- Recycle-Tech (recycled water pipeline)
- Acu-Sewer (sewer pipeline)
- Acu-Tech PP-R (sanitary & HVAC PP-R system)
- Acu-Fab (poly fabrication services)
- Acu-Subduct (conduit inner subduct)
- Acu-Air (blue jacket compressed air pipe)
Polyethylene Pressure Pipe (PE) HD-PE100
Acu-Tech’s HD-PE100 pipe comes in 20 mm to 800 mm in lengths and coils. Clients have the option of striping or full coating for system-specific colour coding. Backed with experience in working with Australia’s industrial, mining, utilities and plumbing sectors, our products and services are developed purposely to provide each sector with best-fitting solutions. PE pipe fittings are available from Acu-Tech Piping Systems, a leading pipe manufacturing company in Perth, W.A. Custom PE pressure pipe can be made to order, including co-extruded HDPE pipe, custom SDR or PN rating poly pipe, and custom PE pipe lengths – see the pipe size chart below. Acu-Tech’s large diameter coiled HDPE pipe is strapped in layers, so the poly pipe coil does not dangerously unwind, as some vinidex pipes or iplex pipes are prone to do.
HDPE poly pressure pipe can be joined by a variety of methods, including electrofusion fittings, compression fittings, butt weld/short spigot fittings, HDPE transition fittings and BSP threaded adaptor fittings.
