Concrete pressure pipe are long lasting due to their resilience, strength and corrosion resistance. Concrete pressure pipes are selfsupporting structures and can therefore be installed in accordance with the standard
installation practices used for reinforced concrete pipes. The use of concrete pressure pipes promotes regional value creation due to the use of locally available materials and the creation of employment opportunities in pipe manufacturing.
Plant concept PCCP production
The plant can be designed for the manufacture of lined and embedded steel cylinder concrete pressure pipes. Pressure pipes with a nominal diameter of up to and including 1500 mm/60 inches are frequently lined steel cylinder concrete pipes. Pressure pipes with nominal diameters above 1500 mm/60 inches are embedded steel cylinder concrete pressure pipes.
For the production of pressure pipes the following equipment is being required:
Performance profile PCCP production
The production of concrete pressure pipes requires extensive know-how and well engineered production technology for the entire pipe manufacturing process, but in particular in the two main areas of steel processing and concrete technologies.
Dependent on pressure classes and the nominal diameter of the required pipe, concrete pressure pipes can be manufactured as lined cylinder pipes (LCP) or as embedded cylinder pipes (ECP) with an adapted steel wall thickness for the cylinder and adapted steel wire qualities (wire thickness, gradient, multiple winding). The design of concrete pressure pipe takes advantage of the best properties of both the concrete and the steel.
Steel cylinder production is suited for processing sheet metal with a thickness from 1,5mm to 6,5 mm.
Planning is important but execution is critical. Equipment and systems must perform in accordance with functional requirements and detailed design specifications.
