When working on pressure pipelines, compensating for ground movements, seismic activity and vibration can be a challenge for designers and asset owners, particularly when using rigid pipe materials.
Transitioning from below to above ground and across bridge structures can also present challenges, requiring solutions to counterbalance movement in a range of planes.
Hygrade Water offer a solution with our range of EBAA Iron Flex-Tends and Force Balance Flex-Tends. Manufactured in Ductile Iron and Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coated, the internationally acclaimed Flex-Tend range of products are suitable for use on a range of pipeline materials including DI, CLS, PE, and PVC.
In this project the Flex 900 ball joints were installed on a pipeline bridge as part of a realignment project for a significant watermain in Auckland. The FLEXTEND range of products provides designers and asset owners with proven movement solutions.
