POWER & COMMUNICATIONS
Power & Communications Division Mission
To expand knowledge of the uses and benefits of HDPE conduit for Power and Communications applications.
Provides guidance in choosing wall thickness for HDPE Conduit in HDD (Horizontal Directional Drilling) applications.
New "Standard Practice"
Provides guidance in the specification of HDPE Conduit for transportation applications including highway lighting, ITS
(Intelligent Highway Systems), airports, PTC (positive train control) and other applications
New NEMA TC-7 specification for HDPE Conduit in electrical applications. PPI Conduit Division provided critical assistance in revising the standard to bring it up to current industry requirements.
High Density Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer used in pipe and conduit applications. It
protects the electrical and telecommunications
conduit provides a wide range of solutions to
conduit have specific characteristics and flame retardant ratings for use as nonmetallic raceways in buildings.
Why Use HDPE for Conduit?
It's not the cost, it's the savings and the sustainability
. HDPE conduit saves
installation time. Methods such as Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)
minimize interruptions to busy roadways and damage to the surrounding area.
