High Country Fusion helps Nuclear Energy Facilities implement High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Specific Solutions. The primary application for HDPE is safety related piping for cooling water solutions, but also include Process Piping for Waste water, Cooling tower Supply & Blow down, Essential & Emergency Water Supply, Underground Piping, Fire Mains, and more.
On July 21st, 2009 the Nuclear Energy Institute recognized the use of HDPE pipe with a Top Industry Practice award. It also produced a video that relays news of the groundbreaking decision to implement a new industry-wide standard to use HDPE pipe in all new and existing plants. “The Secret is Plastic” shows how and why Duke Energy’s Catawba nuclear station in South Carolina and Ameren’s Callaway plant in Missouri are now using HDPE pipe to replace the much more costly carbon steel pipe.
