Superior Strength, Optimum Hydraulics and Service Reliability
Research shows the corrugations of Pacific Corrugated HDPE pipe give the product an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio. Because it is made of chemically inert materials, our pipe is extremely durable and highly effective in both acidic and alkaline soils alike. HDPE pipe resists breakdown caused by abrasion and freeze/thaw cycles and has been effectively used in environments with ambient temperatures above 120° F. Our HDPE double wall pipe is highly efficient due to the low friction factor of the smooth pipe interior, resulting in optimum hydraulic flow design. This type of pipe has been found to have an effective Manning’s “n” factor as low as 0.012. Further, in many soil conditions you can realize a service life up to 75 years.
