IPF-Plasson Supplies HDPE Spirolite Pipe and Manholes for National Sewer Project in Mexico

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 02/05/14 -- Industrial Pipe Fittings (IPF-Plasson), a Plasson owned company based out of Houston, Texas offers the most complete line of HDPE pipe fittings available in the western hemisphere, including their own proprietary Spirolite. Recently, IPF-Plasson landed a $1.7 million deal to supply a national sewer project in Matamoros, Mexico with Spirolite pipe and manholes.

"The reason the client went with Spirolite versus concrete is flexibility and ease of installation," said Enrique Saavedra, Vice President of Sales at IPF-Plasson. He further explained that, "Concrete takes over 50% more time to install and is prone to breaking in areas where the soil expands or shifts due to the groundwater line."

The line depth change for this particular project went from 6.5 m down to 8.3 m. The engineers at IPF-Plasson knew that this depth change would pose a challenge, so to combat the pressure, they recommended Spirolite instead of concrete, PVC, steel and other hybrid materials because Spirolite is more flexible, fast and easy to install. Spirolite HDPE, a high-density polyethylene, was the only product that could successfully withstand the depth and wet conditions of the sewer system placement.

Spirolite pipe is offered in segments up to 50' with bell and spigot jointing for easy installation. Custom pieces such as reducers, manholes, pump stations and manifolds are also available to meet specific application requirements.

Once completed, the sewer system will provide water supply for the second waste water treatment plant in Matamoras, Mexico.

IPF-Plasson is the only manufacturer in the United States to produce Spirolite and other pure HDPE pipe fittings. They follow strict accordance with ASTM F2206, AWWA and FM specifications and machine large reducers, flanges and heavy branch saddles in any diameter from 2" to 120" outside diameter.

The team at IPF-Plasson relishes the depth challenge that this particular sewer project has presented, as it gives IPF-Plasson the chance to showcase strength and durability attributes within their product-line.
