Suitable for a variety of installation methods including trenching, plowing, surface, pipe rehabilitation, horizontal directional drilling, shallow water and more, FlexSteel deploys quickly and easily from a reel. Lengths of up to 8,858 feet (2,700 meters) are joined by midline connections, requiring no welding or x-rays to inspect weld quality. With far less equipment and personnel required, installation of FlexSteel is 40% to 80% faster and 35% to 65% less costly than jointed steel. And FlexSteel reduces right of way requirements to minimize land disturbance and environmental impact. The only flexible pipe that will not weaken in the presence of water and the only one with the strength for long pulls, FlexSteel is particularly well-suited for wet environments and for pipe rehabilitation projects.
