The performance of pipes and their operational costs represent an important aspect of the project costs in irrigation projects world-wide. Particularly in irrigation, pipe systems which prevent the loss of water are preferred. As a composite material, the use of GRP is becoming more widespread in irrigation applications and GRP pipes increasingly replace traditional metal and concrete based pipes, as well as conventional open trenches.
They are widely used in main transmission lines, network lines and pumping lines in irrigation projects. Siphon lines in irrigation systems usually cross steep valleys, or creeks and ponds. Thanks to its light weight, GRP pipes allow easy transportation, even on steep slopes, and safe installation. Their high mechanical strength, flexibility against overload peaks and their corrosion resistance make GRP pipe systems the preferred solution for irrigation siphon lines.
Excellent corrosion resistance makes additional corrosion protection or cathodic protection unnecessary. The excellent product properties, combined with individual, project-dependent installation methods, avoid leakage in transmission and network lines, vaporization in open trenches and operational losses.
