Advertisment

Dear reader,

Throughout this year, we have continued to strengthen our customer-focused efforts. The success of the Krah Community members, including their good stories from across the globe, confirms our well-thought strategy. The idea of an „informal“group of companies seemed to be better than a complex company structure. Our self-made and already published handbook is almost sold out (2000 issues left) – soon, we will do the second issue (also in Spanish). The newest family member is the German company „Comtruder GmbH“– this company is a start-up business and focuses on green compounding technology.

At this moment, a production line is being shipped to Manila, Philippines where the official opening ceremony will be held in November 2016. I attended the ground-breaking ceremony and I was impressed to see so many active and young engineers which are willing- and giving all their efforts- to start the production of Krah pipes soon. According to the geopolitical changes at the moment, the markets and the marketing activities are also changing.

This year we will exhibit again on the world’s largest plastic trade fair in Düsseldorf / Germany - you are all welcome to visit us and to get drinks and food for free. We are located in hall 16 booth D77.

Best wishes,

Alexander Krah

Sea Outfall project in diameter DN/ID 3400mm and DN/ID 1400mm for a power plant in Stockholm, Sweden

For a power plant in the capitol of Sweden a sea-outfall pipe was planned originally in concrete. The construction-site is located directly at the ferry-harbour in Stockholm.

Because of the impressive product-properties and the professional design the German Henze GmbH convinced the client to use a helical extruded polyethylene pipe with the diameter DN/ID 3400 mm. As part of the overall project also a provisional pipeline DN/ID 1400 mm was necessary for crossing a brackish water basin.

Picture

The DN/ID 3400 mm pipes are designed with a strong solid wall part and a reinforced profiled wall structure, so that the total wall thickness reached 180 mm and the outer diameter was ca. 3760 mm. The profiled wall is specially designed for filling with concrete during installation at site. The additional ballast ensures that the pipe-system can be launched and submerged in a safe and easy way. Also the DN/ID 1400 mm pipes are designed similar to a wall structure - with a strong solid wall part and a reinforced profiled wall structure.

The complete project covers around 135 m of DN/ID 3400 mm pipe and furthermore 100 m of DN/ID 1400 mm.

Krah pipes - protecting life!

Picture
Krah Pipes OÜ in Estonia has always been keen on developing out of the box solutions and thus opening new fields of application for the Krah pipes. No one imagined that a product, developed few years back together with another Estonian company Vesimentor OÜ, would lead the way into a completely new segment for the industry. In 2012 Vesimentor OÜ approached Krah with an idea to produce underground cellars for food & wine storage. The product was released to the market and successfully sold over the years by Vesimentor OÜ.

Sometimes it happens that a completely random event can start a process of development one just cannot expet. At a meeting during one industry fair a random question was asked. And after a short consideration of possibilities the answer was – yes.

This was the start of a completely new product – a bomb shelter. A design that is meant to be completely different from the conventional options. A bomb shelter that is:
  • Completely water tight
  • Has a small weight
  • Mobile
  • Can be installed really fast
  • Can be relocated after usage
  • Is repeatedly usable
  • Has vast number of options when compiling the shelter system

Energy savings up to 33% - New innovation in the compounding technology!

In September 2016 the Comtruder GmbH, based in Schutzbach, Germany, put the first compounder “ECO 800” in operation.

The Comtruder GmbH is a successful start-up business in the field of plastic technology and mechanical engineering. The CEO Ms. Lelde Muizniece is looking forward to a bright future for the company. The company will compound various plastic materials as well as sell compounding plants worldwide. First international contacts have already been made.

The new technology shows significant savings in the energy-sector. Recently produced compounds show an energy saving of more than 30%. The energy input is displayed on the screen of the machine so that it can be continuously monitored and serve as a reliable proof.

Picture

The technology is legally protected by its patent application “DE 10 2015 014 865.6 Mehrwellige kontinuierlich arbeitende Misch- und Knetmaschine” and can only be used and sold by the Comtruder GmbH.

Reducing the effects of flooding in the Philippines
by using a one-time installation and modern sustainable storm-water management system

Picture

On the 22nd September the annual DPWH Research Symposium took place at the GT Toyota Asian Cultural Center, UP Diliman, Quezon City. This year’s event was called „2016 Research Symposi- um: providing infrastructure that improves quality, traffic and road safety“. It was spearheaded by DPWH Bureau of Research and Standards (DPWH-BRS). The symposium was graced by Mr. Raul Asis, DPWH Undersecretary and Ms. Judy Sese, DPWH-BRS Director. Over 200 enthusiasts in the field of engineering and research attended the said event. Mr. Sajid Anonuevo, CEO of Krah Pipes Manila, Inc. , also held a presentation at the event. His topic was how to stop flooding in the Philippines.

During the first week of July 2016 yet another unusual 3-hour heavy rain surged in the main land of Metro Cebu , which caused severe flooding, “gridlock” traffic and left thousands of civilians stranded on all its major roads. The rain started with a weird, unusually loud thunder and lightning, described as heaviest so far since the state weather bureau announced the start of La Niña.

This is not only evident to Cebu but mainly to most parts of the country and its major cities, since one of the most flood-prone countries in the world is the Philippines. There have been over 60 reported major floods in the country in the last ten years. These natural disasters affected nearly 14 million people and about 700 lives were taken. In addition, the recorded damages were estimated to be worth over $400 million.
