UHMWPE chemical hose is the abbreviation of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene. It is a new chemical engineering new material and new product of thermoplastic engineering plastics with an average molecular weight of more than 2 million, which is polymerized by ethylene and butadiene monomer under the action of a catalyst.
UHMWPE chemical hoses have excellent overall performance, wear resistance, low temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, self-lubrication and impact resistance. They work at -169 to +80 °C and are called "amazing" engineering plastics. UHMWPE hose is a new type of thermoplastic engineering plastic with excellent price performance.
UHMWPE chemical hoses have almost concentrated the advantages of various plastics: wear resistance, impact resistance, self-lubrication, corrosion resistance, low temperature resistance, hygienic non-toxicity, non-adhesion, non-absorption, etc. It is an ideal pipe material. Widely used in transportation industries such as metallurgical mines. Its characteristics are as follows:
1. Non-toxic to organisms
UHMWPE chemical hose adapts to water quality fluids, solid particles, powders, slurries, etc., traditional metal pipes are difficult to meet the requirements, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene pipes can be replaced, with extremely high corrosion resistance, high wear resistance, self-lubricating Comprehensive performance such as absorption shock, it has wide application in various industries; it has unique advantages in solid particles, powder, slurry and gas transportation.
2. Unique low temperature resistance
UHMWPE chemical hose has excellent low temperature resistance, and its impact resistance and wear resistance are below zero.
It does not change at 269 °C. It is currently the only engineering plastic that can work at temperatures close to absolute zero. At the same time, this product has a wide temperature range and can work at temperatures from -269C to 80C for a long time.
3. Surface non-adhesion
UHMWPE chemical hoses have good surface non-adhesion due to their low coefficient of friction and non-polarity. Existing materials generally scale in media with a pH of 9 or higher, and this product does not scale. This property is of great significance for the use of coal-fired ash systems in thermal power plants. It is also very suitable for pipelines such as crude oil and mud.
4. Other features
UHMWPE chemical hoses also have energy absorption, noise absorption, antistatic, shielding ability to neutrons, no water absorption, and light weight. Easy to machine, colorable and other outstanding features.
