London, UK (PRWEB) July 22, 2011
A pipe weight calculator is a huge advantage for steel pipe engineers, enabling the predetermination of any potential transport, lifting and handling issues involved in pipe network projects, according to FT Pipeline Systems, the leading UK provider of steel water pipes for pipeline networks.
The new FT Pipeline Systems pipe weight calculator, added to the company’s website at the beginning of July, takes the outside pipe diameter and wall thickness metrics as input by the user and converts them into a pipe weight estimation at the click of a button. The calculator can be found on the FT Pipeline Systems website: http://www.ftpipelinesystems.co.uk/pipe_weight_calculator.cfm.
Duncan Frazer, managing director of FT Pipeline Systems, said: “We feel that the FT Pipeline Systems pipe weight calculator has the potential to become an important element of our website, providing added value to any new visitors looking to make enquiries regarding the requirements of the pipeline systems.
“It is obviously still of great importance to speak to our professional sales team, since it’s imperative that the measurements are accurate and suitable for the task at hand – the weight calculator simply enables engineers to estimate any logistical requirements of the pipe network they are planning.”
FT Pipeline Systems is the leading UK supplier of steel pipes, including a wide variety of pipe lining materials, joints, adaptors and accessories to ensure that all pipe systems can operate at their optimum potential with reduced risk of further maintenance being required.
As well as being a supplier of Mannesman Line Pipes (formerly known as Fuchs), FT Pipeline Systems has also successfully developed the FT E-joint, which overcomes the need for internal repairs to the pipe when an epoxy lining is required.
