Leak free, sustainable, homogenous and flexible Krah Pipe System
Since generations the mankind is busy by transporting water/sewer or any other liquids from one point to another point. The challenge was always to assure a conveyance system without fails and leakage. Most pipe failures were occurring on the joints through corrosion or cracks on the rigid inflexible pipe material.
Over the last decades, the inherent weaknesses of concrete, clay, ductile, PVC and steel caused tremendous problems in existing water supply, sewer pipes systems, as they tend to be brittle or are too sensitive for aggressive chemicals and soil conditions. Leakages have become a common occurrence worldwide in water, sewer and other large diameter pipe applications. In addition, they have an unprofitable relationship between cost and benefit due to short life time and high maintenance costs.
Krah Pipes are made out different grades of pure Polyethylene or Polypropylene who are providing superior properties against corrosion, leakage, pipe displacement and ex-infiltration. In addition to the permanent solution that lasts through generations, the Krah piping system is able to provide a sustainable, environment friendly and economical solution with its wide-ranging fields of applications, f.e. water supply, sewer systems, drainage, storm water management, sea outfalls/intake, manholes and reservoirs.
In order to meet the demand of the at least 100 years leak free, sustainable and flexible pipe system, Krah Pipes are produced with an integrated electro fusion joint system, which assures a melting of the pipes to a homogenous and monolithic pipe system.
Krah Pipes can be produced from the following thermoplastic materials:
- High density polyethylene (PE80 and PE100))
- Polypropylene – random (PP-R, PP-B)
- Polypropylene – homo (PP-H)
- Flame retardant polypropylene (PP-S)
Other materials can be used after prior acceptance of the producer and a third party for quality control.
