Mining and Industrial
Vinidex pipe and fittings systems continue to prove themselves in some of Australia’s toughest operating conditions in mines right across the country.
Polyethylene pipes have high impact strength and flexibility together with the abrasion resistance required in slurry lines. Polyethylene pipe is also ideal for pit dewatering and the countless water and chemical applications within mine operations. Vinidex PE pipes can me manufactured with a white coextruded external layer, reducing the heat build-up and consequent temperature rise in exposed outdoor installations.
Vinidex offers a full range of jointing systems, including butt welding, electrofusion, mechanical couplings and compression fittings.
Borecasing is a specialised PVC pressure pipe offered to the mining industry. Borecasing PVC pipe is used to form a lining or casing for a water bore drilled vertically into the ground.
The range of industrial applications for Vinidex PVC and polyethylene pipe and fittings is virtually limitless, with most industries involving industrial processes in which fluids are conveyed.
PVC piping systems are widely used in water, waste water and chemical transfer.
Polyethylene piping systems are well suited to installation in difficult industrial situations. Their high strength and ease of installation also makes them ideal for compressed air reticulation.
Pipes and fittings from Vinidex are renowned for their proven performance, excellent flow characteristics, reliability, durability and high strength.
