In the previous articles, we know that there was a revolution for water supply system. PE pipe gradually replaces the metal pipe for water supply. Nowadays, the quantity demand to PE pipe becomes larger and larger. Therefore, more and more PE pipe supplier appears on the market. However, here comes the question that the quality of PE pipes are varied. Thus it’s an important question for user that how to choose PE pipe. Because the bad quality PE pipe may cause bad influence to the use.
Here I give you some suggestions when purchasing PE pipe
First, you don’t have to pay more attention to the appearance when choose PE pipe. The PE pipe will become smooth and colorful because use more high pressure materials during the production and process. However, the extra high pressure material will reduce the ring stiffness of PE pipe. Therefore, you should choose a high performance pipe, but the good looking one.
Second is the price. As the old saying goes “Not good goods cheaper”, so we should not chase cheap pipe excessively. However, it never means we must buy the expensive pipe. We can say it’s good only if it meets our requirements.
Third is the brand. Some people think we should be famous brand, but I don’t thinks so. Like buy other products, we should compared them from different supplier. Then choose a cost-effective pipe. This can not only guarantee the pipe quality, but also save much cost.
Last let me introduce you some tips to check the quality of PE pipe.
1. High quality PE pipe is smooth and bright, it will not crack after being folded over and over as well.
2. The higher the fracture elongation is, the better the pipe will be. Because it improves that the hose is flexible enough.
3. Oxidative inducting time is an important index to test the thermal degradation resistance. The longer the time is, the better the aging resistance will be.
