Dredging and mining

In many industries such as food, mining, and dredging, pipes transport a mixture of liquids and solids. Depending on the type of the mixture, operating conditions and the piping system, the service life of piping systems can be significantly reduced compared with operating conditions of conventional water and gas pipes.

The reduced service life requires frequent replacement of pipes, increasing operating costs and downtime of the system.

Polyethylene pressure pipes such as PE100 generally have a good abrasion resistance, in particularly when compared with steel pipes.

When fitting such pipes with a specific polyolefin inner layer, the abrasion resistance can be improved further, extending service life and reducing the total cost of ownership for the operators of such piping systems.

SABIC solutions for dredging and mining offers:

  • Increased abrasion resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Flexibility
  • Low temperature impact

Potential applications

  • Mining industry
  • Dredging 
  • Sand winning
  • Food industry
