Transvaal Rubber Company (Truco) has recently introduced a new range of environmentally-friendly High Density Polyurethane (HDPE) piping to its industrial hose offering. This easy-to-install locally-manufactured range of piping features high chemical-, corrosion- and abrasion-resistance and is non-toxic - making it ideal for all water transfer, agricultural and mining applications.
"Our customers are constantly looking for ways to increase safety and their 'green factor' in all applications, and our new HDPE range addresses this as it is chemically inert and unaffected by acidic soil conditions as well as biologically inert against micro-organisms," says Richard Endean, Truco.
Available in a wide range of sizes from 16 to 1 200 mm Outer Diameter, Truco's HDPE range caters for all water-transfer applications. Its specialised non-toxic plastic construction makes it safe for drinking water. This range of piping is also lighter than rubber, facilitating easier installation while fewer joining points makes it ideal for long-distance conveyance.
