Comparison between PPRCT FR Pneumatic and HDPE Pipe

PPRCT comparison writeup - Focusing on the Better Flow with Energy saving solutions. Energy saving Glass reinforced PPRCT pipes are highly recommended for Process lines, Water lines, Chemical lines and many other fluids. The differentiators that we provide are NO Leakage, UV resistance, Insulation, Strength and many more. To know more about the difference you can have a look below.

Criteria PPRCT FR
Composite Piping
HDPE Pipes
MOC Polypropylene having composition with Glass Fiber Reinforcement It is a plastic pipe made from very soft polymer
Joining system related to leakages Socket fusion joints having excellent strength provides indissoluble and leak proof joints Butt fusion joints having poor strength leads to higher leakages
Joining system related to pressure drop Socket Fusion joining system does not create any ring when pipe is welded with fittings hence NEGLIGIBLE CHANCES OF PRESSURE DROP Due to Butt Fusion joints, ring is created between both pipes when welded and this ring acts as an OBSTACLE WHILE CIRCULATING THE FLOW which leads to high pressure drop
MRS related to Wall thickness Lesser wall thickness required due to higher MRS i.e. 12.5 Higher wall thickness required due to lesser MRS i.e. 80
Inner Diameter related to Flow and Energy Saving Higher inner diameter increases the flow and energy saving Smaller inner diameter due to higher wall thickness decreases the flow and increases the energy consumption
Chemical Resistance Excellent chemical resistance and gives longer life even in highly corrosive chemicals Moderate chemical resistance and reduces life in corrosive chemical applications
Temperature Resistance High temperature resistance up to 90 Deg C Fair temperature resistance up to 60 Deg C
UV resistance Multi-layer technology covered with UV resistance carbon content layer in the form of strips on the pipeline No UV resistance hence, not cannot be used in direct sunlight
Thermal Expansion related to Sagging Due to Glass Fiber Reinforcement and higher MRS raw material, PPRCT FR Composite Pipe faces 3 TIMES (300%) LESSER THERMAL EXPANSION than HDPE thus leads to lesser Sagging comparatively Due to extra soft Polymer, HDPE Pipe faces very high THERMAL EXPANSION that creates lots of Sagging
Sagging related to Pressure drop Lesser sagging prevents pressure drop and leads to energy saving Higher sagging leads to higher pressure drop which in turn leads higher energy consumption
Support & Clamp Glass Fiber Reinforcement composition with Polypropylene preventing sagging reduces the support and clamping requirement that minimizes the additional costing and gives nice aesthetic view to the pipeline Due to Sagging; clamping and support needed at very short distance which increases the costing and even spoils the aesthetic view of the pipeline
Manufacturing Standard As per ISO 15874-2:2012 especially for industrial use As per IS 4984 standard which is for drainage purpose
Life with Maintenance Due to crystalline technology, long life up to 20 years without maintenance Very short life with heavy maintenance
