For mining applications, sturdy plastic pipes with diameters above 800 millimeters are manufactured on our extruders. These extremely long-lasting pipes are primarily used in the oil production, natural gas and metal ores. There is a continuous, strong demand especially in the areas of iron ore mining for steel production and copper ore mining for electrical appliances and telecommunication products.
There are definite advantages: certainly the steel pipes previously used in mining offer a longer service life than the plastic pipes commonly used today. However, plastic pipes minimize sound levels, for example in mining and transporting iron ore, and prevent contamination by abrasion, which is why thick-walled large-diameter pipes made of PE 100 are standard today.
Plastic pipes are also used in oil production and natural gas production through fracking, and for cooling PE splitting machines.
