Pipe, fiberglass

WNR Systems has developed a machine that uses the latest technology in fiberglass to construct a joint free, continuous pipe, directly on the job site. The machine can deliver any length or wall thickness cured and ready for use in less than two minutes.

The pipe will have a glass-like smoothness internally, resulting in less surface-friction and a reduction in hydraulic power and pump sizing. In addition, shut-off stations, inspection openings, and T-sections and bends may be introduced at any stage of production.

Centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar (CCFRPM) Hobas pipe is inherently corrosion resistant and lasts 100 years or more providing a very low life-cycle cost.

Hobas Pipe USA has been manufacturing centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar (CCFRPM) pipe at their Houston-based plant since 1987. Recently, they began manufacturing pipe in diameters from 18 inches to 126 inches with capabilities to produce even larger diameters.
