WearPro Pipes

pipes

Reasons to Consider Using WearPro Pipes:

  • Anti-Scaling
  • Superior Chemical Resistivity (for details click here)
  • Superior Abrasion and Impact resistance to EnergyPro (click here for testing report)
  • Extreme Wear Resistance
  • Extremely Low Surface Roughness
  • Self Lubricating
  • Improves Pumping Efficiency
  • Reduces Required Energy Input
  • Greatly Reduces 'Total Pumping Cost'
  • Corrosion Resistance
  • Aids in Delivering Emmision Targets

Suitable Applications for WearPro Pipes are:

  • Dredging
  • Mineral sand
  • Mine tailings line
  • Water pipelines
  • Waste Water and sewerage pipelines

Pipe & Buoy Australia is the only UHMWPE pipe manufacturer in the world. We are not just a "materials" company:

Custom sizes available, where moulds already exist from 20-1400mm OD, up to 65 WT. Product can be manufactured in any colour, and to all conformance requirements.

  • The only extruder to enforce ISO 9001, 14001, and OHSAS 18001 certifications exclusively
  • The only extruder capable of pipe >45mm WT and >800mm OD (Capable of 65mm and 1400 OD respectively)
  • Our PipePro range is such, that we are the only pipe company that will refuse to sell HDPE pipe for slurry applications
