New Rust Resistant uPVC Borehole Pipes

uPVC (unplasticised poly vinyl chloride) are corrosion resistant and light-weight piping that can easily be fitted in sections. Available in galvanised pipes of 25mm to 125mm diameter Column / Drop / Riser Pipes for submersible pump and can last up to 50 years.

Characteristics

  • Pipes are available in 3 meter lengths.
  • Strong and rigid pipes
  • Installed up to 350 meter deep.
  • Special tough square thread that can carry a mass of 11,000kg.
  • Connected by stainless steel, mild steel & cast iron adapters
  • Can withstand the pump delivery hydrostatic pressure.
  • Completely leak proof by means of a ‘0’ ring

Applications

  • Electric submersible pumps
  • Windmills
  • Irrigation
  • Drilling
  • Borehole Testing

The ‘O’ Ring
The sealant and gripping system provides a leak-proof fitting. It absorbs the vibrations of the pump extending the life of motor and pump bearings.borequip-advert-image-4

Wirelock™
This is a unique system fitted to the pipe and locked with special stainless steel wire, thus eliminating the chances of coupler loosening & Column/Drop/Riser slipping during dismantling process and also excessive tightening of the coupler.

Advantages

  • Light in weight for ease of transport and handling.
  • Low friction – more water for the same power costs.
  • Sockets are fitted permanently – eliminates loose sockets and column slip during dismantling.
  • Less expensive than their alternative equivalents, depending on depth and water delivery.
  • Pipes do not become brittle and will not break under normal handling conditions.
  • Cannot corrode resulting in less friction for better water delivery up to 10 to 30%.
  • Extends the life of motor and pump bearings.
  • Lower power consumption.
  • No Electrolytic Deposition being non-metallic.
  • Pipes and fittings are environment-friendly.
  • Fire resistant and inherently difficult to ignite.
