Nowadays, plastic pipe has been widely applied in many fields: convey liquid, gas and heat, cable protection, irrigation and other applications. There are many plastic pipes made by different plastic materials. Below are advantages and disadvantages of several common plastic pipes for comparison.
||The pressure of Aramid fiber reinforced pipe is up to 9-14Mpa.
The explode pressure can be 40Mpa.
Currently the RTP pipe is mainly used in
industrial field,especially at oil exploitation
area, such as Middle East hot desert, the
cold Siberian area and sea oil well.
