HDPE Energy Transmission


JM Eagle’s HDPE black pipe for gas is manufactured from superior PE 4710 resin material for greater performance and an extended life expectancy.

  • Its butt-fused joints eliminate potential leak points, common at 20 feet with ductile iron pipe, for a zero leak rate.
  • Highly resistant to corrosion and weather, recent studies conclude it will last at least 100 years.
  • Its light weight and flexibility make it easy to install, eliminate the need for fittings required with directional changes, and make it highly suitable for use in earthquake prone areas.
  • Its high-strength walls give it the highest PE pressure rating, outstanding resistance to SCG and increased resistance to rapid crack propagation.
  • The increased working stress rating of high-performance PE 4710 resin material allows use of a larger inside diameter (thinner wall) for a given operating pressure, making it a superior choice over steel or ductile iron pipe, especially for the large-diameter pipe sizes.

Complied Standard(s): ASTM D2513 & 49 CFR Part 192 or ASTM F2619 & API 15 LE.*

*As per PPI (Plastic Pipe Institute) - ASTM F2619 and API 15LE are generally used for PE pipe in oil & gas gathering applications. ASTM D2513 may be added to PE line pipe in situations where there is a potential concern that non-jurisdictional pipe may get re-classified as jurisdictional.
