RADIUS SYSTEMSí NEW 710MM WATER PIPE EXCELS IN READING

Posted: Monday 26th October 2009

Following investment in new pipe extrusion lines and fittings for polyethylene (PE) pipe diameters up to 1200mm, Radius Systems was selected for the supply of 710mm dark blue PE for the prestigious new water supply main from Fobney to Tilehurst near Reading, a 7km scheme for Thames Water.

Contractor Murphy Group selected PE over ductile iron due to its engineering performance for this particular application. The installation was in a high water table area, close to a water course, and running across fields in some sections, so long lengths of butt-fused PE proved advantageous. PEís flexibility also negated the need for lots of bends.

The installation is part of Thames Waterís ongoing investment in its water network.
