The S-Series extrusion lines are optimised for the production of PE100 solid wall pipes, however the extruder and the tools can also handle modern PP instead. We recommend PE100 with integrated glass fibres, as this material offers double the strength against inside pressure and allows to save up to 50 % material compared with solid wall pressure pipes without fibre.
The winded solid wall pipes are designed to reach high inside pressure classes with just a low material weight. The winding process has been invented by bauku in 1956 and has been developed since the early days to the high tech level of today.
The smooth outside and smooth inside pipes can be used for various applications. The PE100 allows not only to handle sewer or to store aggressive chemicals, it is also perfect for drinking water and food storage. The extrusion process is highly flexible and just one extrusion line handles all diameters from DN 600 to DN 4000, just by changing the mandrels (steel forms). There is no need for a mass production, the extrusion line fabricates a 6 m pipe DN 2000 and just minutes later a 6 m pipe DN 1000 (for example). The most sensible part in a plastic pressure pipe system is the joint. To be able to withstand the high stresses in this area, we recommend to use the butt fusion process here. The pipes are extruded with plain ends in that case, so that they fit in a butt fusion machine in the factory or at the job site.
