Krah Pipes Manila, Inc. has again made a landmark accomplishment in the installation of a DN/ID 1500mm diameter pipe for its client, SM Telabastagan, Pampanga.
The project which Krah Pipes Manila Inc was able to forge is basically a 24 meter distance of cross drain pipes which ran across a major road, MacArthur Highway considered a very busy road within Fernando City, Pampanga. The 24-meter distance or length is practically 4 pieces of 1500mm diameter Krah Pipes. It was a quick overnight process of installation where the excavation of the trench took only 4 hours and 3 hours for the jointing of 4 pieces of pipes (at 6 meters in length per pipe) and laying them down the trench after which the excavated area was immediately back filled making the road ready for the passage of the various vehicles and motorists the following day. The works conducted did not cause disruption and inconvenience to the public.
The handling was likewise quick and fast for 4 pieces of pipes jointed on ground and finally jointed together down the trench by a backhoe proving that Krah pipes are very easy to handle and lift at project site and very fast to install using the electro-fusion process.
This installation works is again another milestone for Krah Pipes Manila, Inc. Even in the production of the 4 pieces of pipes at 1500mm in diameter was very quick, taking only 7 hours production time.
Krah pipes are really the best fit pipes for this kind of infrastructure works and material requirement compared to the local conventional re-enforced concrete pipes (RC pipes). It is really high time that Krah pipes be highly considered or preferred as the best technology solution for any major infrastructure in the Philippines more specifically for drainage and sewer systems.
With Krah pipes, there is no down time compared to the conventional concrete pipes where excavation must be bigger to allow space for the manual plastering works.
More so, the plastering to join the pipes is only applied to upper portion of the concrete pipes. For Krah pipes, jointing makes the pipes very strong and secure that is no amount of infiltration or leaks. With the conventional concrete pipes, back filling can only be done when the plastering of the concrete pipes on trenches are cured, meaning sun dried up for about 14-28 days, quite a waste of waiting time and inconvenience.
