Shandong Buoy & Pipe Industry Co., Ltd. is a high-tech incorporated company which is specialized in researching and manufacturing UHMWPE（ultra high molecular weight polythene）products. Located at Liaocheng,China, the company has total investment of RMB 200 million yuan, annual UHMWPE production capacity of 30 thousand metric tons and annual production value of RMB 1 billion yuan. The company is the only one to manufacture UHMWPE pipe with inner diameter lager than 800mm and to apply UHMWPE material in production of marine equipment like navigation buoy, light beacon, etc.
As an innovative product, UHMWPE pipes have been listed on the Chinese National Science and Technology Achievements Promotion Plan. The leader of UHMWPE pipe products, Shandong Buoy and Pipe offers the greatest material advantages: high chemical stability, low friction coefficient, long working life. In solving wear based issues, UHMWPE pipe prevents instances of downtime through serious leakage, high construction cost, or the long construction periods. It is widely used in water infrastructure projects for government and private companies. It is preferred in dredging and reclamation, transmission of all kinds of acid, alkali, crude oil, slag, mud, coal reject, coal ash, amongst a myriad of other potential processes. On balance UHMWPE pipelines are the best alternative for long-distance water supply and slurry transportation projects. The products have been used by over 100 clients from China, Japan, Malaysia, Canada, South Africa, Australia, India, Russia, etc.
The company's ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene plastic and steel composite pipe offers solutions encompassing all of the UHMWPE material benefits together with the pressure ratings of Steel. This custom built alternate offers the best solution for pressure ranges below 60 bar. It takes advantages of both UHMWPE pipes and carbon steel pipes, having the properties of wear resistance, anti high pressure, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, self-lubrication, anti-galling, etc. It can be widely used in the fields of long distance dredging and reclamation, coal ash transmission, mine tailings, water coal slurry transmission, and conveying corrosive media, etc. The company is the only corporation world around being able to manufacture UHMWPE and steel composite pipe with diameter larger than 800mm, which can deliver flowing media 3 times more than traditional steel pipe and reduce times of replacement and downtime for pipeline during working and reduce overall cost to 1/4 of cast steel pipe.
The production of UHMWPE offers environmental benefits for the greater community. UHMWPE pipe production will produce only 15% of the carbon emissions dictated through Steel pipe. Furthermore, there is no added waste water, exhaust fumes, or by-product waste. In addition, the physical energy input is reduced by at least 20% which ensures the ongoing improvements of the environment for our community. The company's product structure is in line with national 12th "five year plan" strategic development requirement.
For future development, Shandong Buoy & Pipe Industry Co. Ltd and their partners are determined to shape an improvement for processes across the world. The company has ISO 9001 certification since 2009, the Chinese Drinking Water Licence from 2010, and is authorized by the Ministry of Public Health in the Shandong Province. Technically, in addition to having established a fit to use research and development department within their manufacturing headquarters in Liaocheng, the company cooperates with Shanghai Chemical Research Institute to further improve the base product being received. In management, the company sets up long term partnership with EDHEC (France EDHEC Business School, established in 1906, is a member of French ancient elite education system "Grandes Ecoles" and the most famous business schools in Europe); Shandong Buoy and Pipe are a rare company, innovating in pipe and marine equipment. We are already associated with the China Plastic Processing Industry Association (CPPIA), China Dredging Association (CHIDA), China Institute of Navigation (CIN) and International Association of Lighthouse Authorities (IALA).
