ISCO Industries is the largest high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe distributor in North America. ISCO can serve your HDPE needs anywhere in the U.S. and internationally.

HDPE pipe is ideal for many different applications including municipal, industrial, energy, geothermal, landfill and more. HDPE pipe is strong, durable, flexible and light weight. When fused together, HDPE has a zero leak rate because the fusion process creates a monolithic HDPE system. HDPE pipe is also a more environmentally sustainable option as it is non-toxic, corrosion and chemical resistant, has a long design life, and is ideal for trenchless installation methods because of its flexibility.

HDPE industrial applications and advantages:

  • FM Approved piping
  • Underground piping meets or exceeds operating temperatures and pressures
  • Cooling Water Applications:
    • HDPE pipe is an excellent insulator, with minimal heat transfer. Copper transfers heat 2700 times more than HDPE.
    • HDPE does not become brittle at 32 deg. F
    • HDPE does not leak, it is seamlessly fused
    • HDPE does not corrode
  • Instrument Air
  • Fire Water
  • Steam Condensate and Blow Down
  • Raw Water
  • Process Water
  • Withstands freezing water better than traditional metal piping
  • Systems maintain high fluid flow properties throughout their service life due to excellent chemical and abrasion resistance
  • Pipe is available in coils through 6" for multiple applications
  • Is weather resistant:
    • Carbon black is added to HDPE to provide UV protection
    • Frozen water will not crack or break HDPE pipe
  • Is durable:
    • Withstands fatigue and surges
    • Safer due to operating pressure capabilities
    • Butt fused joints eliminate need for thrust blocks
  • Delivers long term economy, value, and dependability
