The Uses For Pipes

Pipes allow us to transport materials from one area to another easily.  We use pipes to send water, air, gas and other chemicals through a controlled environment.  With a rubber lined pipe we are able to have an added layer of protection between the pipe outer wall and the contents flowing through the pipe.

Pipe pressure

When working with pipes it is important to keep the pressure within the pipe at a constant level.  Having too much pressure traveling through the pipe could cause stress on the inner and outer walls.  This stress can also travel to the connection points between pipes resulting in fractures and eventual breakage.

Pipe angles

When assembling pipes knowing the correct angle, elevation and other factors are very important.  If we have a pipe at an odd angle the contents of the pipe can become lodged causing backup of materials.  If the angles are not steep enough or too steep, the contents can also flow at odd speeds which could also cause issues.


There are many different types of materials that we can have flowing through pipes.  It is a good idea that when assembling pipes that they only contain the original determined materials flowing through them.  For example, if you are creating a water pipe line then don’t send gas or sewage through the line.  IF you do then contents can become contaminated resulting in more issues.


Keeping the pipes maintained is a big job.  If pipes are buried doing a visual inspection with cameras will be your best option.  If working with gasses traveling down into pipes can be dangerous.  This is why cameras are typically the best option to use.  If there is a problem taking the time to come up with a repair strategy will expedite the repairs and lower the costs in the process.
