London, UK (PRWEB) October 28, 2011
FT Pipeline Systems, pipe suppliers to the UK construction industry, has announced that it now stocks and provides roll grooved pipes.
Roll grooved pipes come with grooves directly rolled into the pipe ends. The pipes are created through the use of a new technique using hydraulically controlled sets of rollers. These consist of two automatic groove rolling systems which clamp the pipe and turn it, thereby producing the grooves.
Roll grooved pipes provide an advantage over traditional piping. Roll grooved tubes are more economical than weld-on grooved sockets because the process is done in one action, rather than having to conduct the different processes separately. These pipes are also of use in the transportation of water, air or solid matter through rugged and rough conditions - such as on construction sites - where a pipe system must be constructed in a relatively short time frame, and where specialist tools may not be available.
These pipes are also advantageous for the construction of sprinkler systems, ducts for air and cooling, and for mining and civil engineering – to name a few examples – thanks to the easy nature in which a pipeline can be constructed.
Duncan Frazer, managing director of FT Pipeline Systems, said: “Roll grooved pipes will be a great advantage to any company looking to construct a pipeline system with ease. They are more economical as they save time and resources usually spent constructing a pipeline, allowing for construction time to be reduced and labour costs kept to a minimum. The benefits become obvious, whether through the reduction in staff required to build the pipeline, or the fact that there is no longer a need for specialist tools. ”
FT Pipeline Systems is also the UK licensee for canusa heat shrink sleeves, the versatile joint protection sleeves suitable for plastic, ductile iron and steel water pipes. For more information, please visit http://www.ftpipelinesystems.co.uk or call 01543 416024.
