Ductile Iron Pipes play a major role in our lives – this is simply owing to the fact that these pipes are used in potable water transmission. Thanks to global warming today it is becoming a rare commodity and so the need of proper water transmission and distribution worldwide. Present global demand is or conservation and of optimum utilization of diminishing water. Ductile iron pipes are the most preferred pipes in this regard as they are leak proof pipes with longevity of life up to minimum 70 to 80 years.
Method of Production: The Process
Ductile pipe follows a typical production methodology and in most cases centrifugal casting process is used to manufacture the pipe. The inherent characteristic of the ductile iron pipes is the fact that the graphite iron consists of spheroid or nodular nature of the iron that gives it a unique property of ductility. During the manufacturing process numerous precautions are taken to inhibit corrosion and these include protective internal linings and external coatings that are applied to the pipe. The main lining consists of ordinary port land cement mortar/sulphate resistant cement mortar/high alumina cement mortar depending upon the application of the pipes. The main external coatings consist of protective layer of zinc followed by Bitumen/blue epoxy/red epoxy as per clients’ requirement. If the surrounding environments of the pipe are highly corrosive, then loose polyethylene sleeving (LPS ) to encase the pipe is also provided.
Ductile Iron Pipes: Rashmi Group Leads
Years advance the visionaries who lead Rashmi group realized that ductile iron pipes would supersede cast iron pipes and therefore being an avant garde organization invested heavily in cutting edge technology to produce ductile iron pipes.
Today, the group has brought about the best practices in increasing the longevity of the ductile iron pipes by adopting novel methods and techniques in their production. All the credit for this goes to Rashmi Group which has taken an avant garde approach and have been the pioneers in initiating the trend towards having a superior quality of ductile iron pipes at much reduced costs.
Rashmi Group has also invested heavily in research and development and their efforts have paid off very well as they have become among the lowest cost manufacturer among the present players in the domestic sector.
Hats off to Rashmi Group for having brought about a revolution in the production of ductile iron pipes that has helped in providing their best service to society!
