Benefits of using a corrugated steel pipe
Are you stuck with a lot of pipe options and you do not know where to begin?
Alright. Close your eyes.
Chill. Breathe in. Breathe out.
Open your eyes, and you will realize that it isn’t as difficult as it sounds.
If you do not understand what a corrugated steel pipe is, not to worry! You are covered. A corrugated steel pipe is simply a pipe whose body is made up of stainless steel and designed with different types of joints. This type of pipe has a ring-shaped outer wall and a smooth inner wall.
Here are some reasons why you need a corrugated steel pipe:
- The strength of a corrugated steel pipe is second to none:
The strength of a corrugated steel pipe is enormous. Unlike other types, this particular corrugated pipe has a higher compression strength (more than 1.5 times stronger), so it is better able to withstand heavy pressures and external forces. It is very suitable for use in drainage facilities such as golf course drain, factory drain, domestic sewage, airport water drain, underground garage or any other related facility, etc.
- It can be easily transported from one point to another:
When most people hear the word ‘metal’, they often believe that the material is generally heavy and they would need lots of support in carrying it. But that is not the same as our metal corrugated pipes. While it is certain that a lot of metals hold substantial weight, the weight of this pipe is only a fraction of the weight of a concrete pipe that even has the same size. The fraction is about 1/10 to 1/5. You can even move it about without the aid of a machine. This is why it is often used for protection. It is used to protect communication cables transmitted underneath, protect pipes used to transport gas and pipes generally used for construction purposes.
- Its durability rate is high:
When you use a metal corrugated pipe, be assured that it will last for long periods. Under normal circumstances, this pipe can serve between fifty to a hundred years. But if affected by environmental conditions, the lifespan can reduce to about twenty to fifty years. Either way, they still serve long periods. That is why it is suitable for industrial purposes such as creating air channels or tubes for gases to flow through in coal mines. Sweet, isn’t it?
- Installation and de-installation times are relatively short:
Metal corrugated pipes are often connected by fastening the band together with a clamp. Plus, the length is not specific- it is changed or adjusted based on the client’s or customers’ requests. So, it is easier to install or de-install these pipes, relatively compared to concrete pipes that are fixed to a particular position. This makes corrugated steel culvert pipes a perfect choice for farm and agricultural purposes. It can be used to drain farm water or for irrigation.
