Reinforced Concrete pipes are one of the standard materials used in sewer & sanitation systems, even for large irrigation projects. These modified concrete pipes not only offer high strength and durability at competitive costs but also acts as the primary alternative to high-density polyethylene pipes. The inherent strength of concrete adds an extra advantage that simplifies the installation and backfilling process. Reinforced Concrete Pipe is very heavy on the other side and should be handled carefully while transporting and installing.
Handling of Reinforced Concrete Pipe
Concrete Pipe machines add one or few metals in the concrete pipe to induce reinforcements in the normal pipes. Extra care and precision must be incorporated while handling reinforced concrete pipes and they should be moved carefully to prevent damaging the wide end as well as the narrow ends of the pipe sections. Dragging of these pipes to the site should be avoided rather they can be unloaded with the help of nylon sling that can easily bear the load of the pipe.
Installing of the Pipe
Installation procedures are more demanding, structural integrity must be tested, and total costs may include a requirement for engineered backfill, on-site inspection, and post-installation laser testing. There is a requirement of a certain amount of installation expertise due to the long-term durability of each material. The fact remains that total cost includes more than the initial price of materials.
Since there are a number of different requirements that need to be imposed on the given raw data, thus it is quite obvious that a myriad conclusion can be reached.
Reinforced Concrete Pipe machines make trenches to accommodate at least two pipes. It thus allows for a requisite amount of room to ensure that there is a desired amount of slope. This also helps in preventing the pipe installations from getting trenched and makes sure that the workers’ safety is not compromised. In this process of trenching there is a formation of grade, i.e. pipe slope. In order to have a uniform level surface, the bedding must not comprise of debris.
Where are reinforced concrete pipes used?
Concrete Pipe makers produce reinforced which stands out from the normal plastic pipe in terms of ease of installation, relative cost, adaptability to condition, etc. Its extreme advantage in stormwater drainage system over the usual polyethylene pipes Several other conditions like soil condition, depth of installation, the volume of traffic, are also kept in consideration by the state highway department.
Pipe making machines also modify the concrete pipes with sulphur to enhance its anti-corrosive properties and shelf life.
