Steel Water Mains Pipe

Swaythling Pipe Bursting Scheme near Southampton.


Steel Water Mains Pipe

Frazer & Tabberer supplied 1.3km of 450mm socket weld pipes for this Swaythling to Bitterne project.  The scheme, which involved pipe bursting an existing main through a land fill site, called for main line and field coatings that would cope with the pressures of drilling.

Fuchs three layer PE coating was chosen for its superior mechanical properties along with Canusa Thrust Bore Kits for the field weld areas.  The pipe also needed to meet the requirements of DWI 31 (4) (a) for potable water use.
