Potable water

The best solution for potable water supply

Polish waterworks experts recommend polyethylene as the best material to construct water pipelines. According to PMR research of 2013 the share of polyethylen in realized water supply investments rises dynamically among other materials.

 

Why are pressure PE pipes so popular?

The strong market position of PE pipes stems from their outstanding performance quality. Polyethylene has numerous advantages, significant for investors, designers, contractors and users.
Polyethylene (PE) pipes have been used all over the world for 60 years. Our corporation was one of the first manufacturers of plastic pipes. Our experience shows that PE pipes are the optimum solution for pressure transportation of water and sewage, since their durability is estimated for approximately a hundred years.

 

For water-supply applications the recommended choice is WehoPipe - a system of pressure PE pipes available in diameters ranging from 20 mm to 1800mm, of nominal pressure up to PN20.

Following the market demand Uponor Infra launched WehoPipeRC/RC+, which is a system of polyethylene pressure pipes and fittings (PE100 RC) characterised by higher resistance to cracks, spot pressure and scratches. WehoPipe RC/RC+ pipes are available in diameters ranging from 25 mm to 1600mm, of nominal pressure up to PN20.

WehoPipe RC/RC+ (PE100 RC)

Following the market demand Uponor Infra launched WehoPipeRC/RC+, which is a system of polyethylene pressure pipes and fittings (PE100 RC) characterised by higher resistance to cracks, spot pressure and scratches.
The system may be used to lay new pipelines or renovate already existing ones. The WehoPipeRC/RC+ pipes are extremely resistant to abrasion, which makes them a perfect solution for transportation of sand, brine and other abrasive substances. They may also be used successfully in open-trench projects since they may be laid in natural ground and covered with local soil without sand bedding and sand surround material, which is necessary while laying conventional pipes.

Advantages of WehoPipe RC/RC+

  • Laying without sand bedding and sand surround material (higher resistance to cracks and spot pressure)
  • Long-term and unfailing operation
  • Welded joints guarantee materially homogeneous and leak-free pipelines
  • The possibility to lay the pipes without fittings following the trail of the trench
  • High abrasion resistance, which is very important in the transportation of sewage and sludge
  • Corrosion, deposit and scale resistant
  • Non-toxic and highly resistant to chemicals including ground-penetrating oil-based substances
  • The best solution in the market for transportation of drinking water without decline of its quality
WehoPipe (PE 100)

WehoPipe is a universal system of solid-wall pipes and fittings made of polyethylene (PE), which are used for creating new and renovating old water supply and sewage pipelines as well as for technological and industrial projects. Polyethylene (PE) pipes have been used all over the world for 60 years. Our corporation was one of the first manufacturers of plastic pipes.
Our experience shows that PE pipes are the optimum solution for pressure transportation of water and sewage, since their durability is estimated for approximately a hundred years.

PE pipes are resistant to the majority of chemical compounds that cause corrosion and deterioration. What is more, they are also flexible and – due to their natural bending radius – they may be laid following the trail of the road without the necessity of using expensive fittings. Their low weight helps cut the costs of transportation and installation.
The polyethylene WehoPipe pipes easily adjust to the dynamic surroundings and may be applied in mining damage areas (up to level 4). Their exceptional resistance to abrasion has been confirmed in the Darmstadt test, which means they are ideal for hydro-transporting of sand, brine and pit sludge. In the production process of pipes Uponor Infra uses best quality raw materials that comply with international standards and Polish regulations.

Advantages of WehoPipe

  • The best solution in the market for transportation of drinking water without decline of its quality
  • Long-term and unfailing operation
  • Welded joints guarantee materially homogeneous and leak-free pipelines
  • The possibility to lay the pipes without fittings following the trail of the trench
  • Corrosion, deposit and scale resistant
  • High abrasion resistance, which is of great significance in the transportation of sewage and sludge
  • Non-toxic and highly resistant to chemicals including ground-penetrating oil-based substances
