Central Queensland Coal Mine Adopts New Technology
Victaulic, the world leader in mechanical pipe joining systems, is proud to announce that a key coal mine in Central Queensland has recently decided to go against the grain for a new water delivery line to be installed later this year.
Instead of opting for the traditional Poly-Welding, they have decided to utilize one of our newly released products, the Style 908 HDPE coupling. The key benefit to the site will be the much shorter construction schedule. The Style 908 coupling has been estimated to save as much as 60% of the installation time, compared to Poly-Welding. Other benefits include the ability to access the system, installation of the line in any weather condition, as well as switching out pipes quickly in the event of a burst spool.
This line will be 400mm PN12.5, approximately 8km in length.
