NFlow HDPE (Plastic Pipe)
HDPE has built its reputation on durability, performance and economics. The reliability of HDPE has made it the product of choice by many contractors, engineers and county/state agencies. Southeast Culvert manufactures HDPE pipe diameters 12” to 60” with the latest technology and with engineered profiles that maximize its structural load capabilities.
In the past two decades the face of the storm drainage industry has drastically changed. Materials engineering has provided a pipe product with the highest strength to weight ratio available among drainage products. HDPE has built its reputation on durability, performance and economics. The reliability of HDPE has made it the product of choice by many contractors, engineers and county/state agencies. Southeast Culvert, Inc. produces HDPE in diameters from 12 – 60 with the latest technology available.
Southeast Culvert can provide a variety of specialty fabrications in HDPE. These structures are advantageous for complex systems such as roof drainage and underground detention manifolds. HDPE can also be fabricated into drop inlets for yard or sports field drainage problems. Each inlet is supplied with a removable grate for maintenance purposes. Fabrications can be made to order. Contact SEC for more information.
HDPE is a tough material that can withstand handling and installation processes. It is the most chemically inert drainage product available. NFLOW pipe is effective in a PH range from 2 to 14. No other drainage product can consistently perform in such a large PH range.
Abrasion can be the most destructive force that drainage pipes will endure, specifically the invert of the pipe. Abrasion is caused by bedload that is carried by high velocities. HDPE is highly resistant to abrasive wear due to its physical makeup and ductility.
The resistivity of soils does not effect the performance of HDPE. NFLOW pipe has an excellent record of success in both alkali and acid installations, and it exceeds expectations in harsh environments.
