SA flood relief

Today, flooding appears to be an ever-increasing factor in large parts of the world. The resultant impact can be devastating on life and property and having the ability to quickly, and effectively, move large volumes of water in response to such a disaster is becoming more and more essential.

As extreme weather conditions and major flood events become more and more commonplace, it is of great importance to have access to the right equipment to handle this influx of water. Angus Flexible Pipelines Australia offers a range of custom-engineered equipment to suit particular flood situation applications, and the company’s flexible pipelines are designed for ease of use when deploying, retrieving, transporting and storing in difficult environmental conditions. Here we take a closer look at some of those solutions and their applications.

Flood relief package

Angus Flexible Pipelines Australia’s flood relief package is a fully integrated system capable of pumping large volumes of water over considerable distances – away from infrastructures and residential areas. A single line of Angus 12” Super Aquaduct system can pump up to 19,000L of water over a distance of 8km. A typical system comprises of several pieces of equipment including satellite and boosting pumping systems, hose deployment and retrieval systems, XLD lay flat hose technologies and accessories.

Collecting heads

Custom collecting heads can be used to flow feed water from multiple inlets to a larger single source outlet – typically 250/300mm – to optimise flow over long distances and minimise pressure losses – especially when using Angus Super Aquaduct hose.


Custom spider manifolds can be used to control water flow and distribution, allowing connectivity to smaller diameter hose lines.

Angus Armourline hoses are typically used for this, controlled via gated valves with Storz or instantaneous connections. Inlets can be 200mm, 250mm or 300mm – either Storz, Twin Star or Victaulic connections – for use with Angus Super Aquaduct hose. Unvalved large Wye manifold/dividing breechings can also be used to direct water flow from a single source to smaller sources – typically from 1 x 300mm to 2 x 200mm – ideal for use with Angus Super Aquaduct hoses when transporting water over distance.

Connections can be Storz, Twin Star, Victaulic or other multiple configurations. Another solution is “Mo –Man” Wheeled Hose Hydrant Trailer, which is optimised for rapid easy deployment with six gated valves – either Storz or any other connections – to direct, control water flow and distribution.

Hose deployment and retrieval equipment

Angus Flexible Pipelines Australia supplies single or quadruple hose reelers for easy deployment and retrieval of large diameter hose such as Angus Super Aquaduct. Each reel will house 600m of 300mm hose. For a smooth easy efficient use, this can be trailer or skid mounted with a hydraulic control system.

System connections

These are typically used to connect the systems normal pipe-to-pipe connections, pipe to hydrant connections, pipe to pump connections or pipe to water supply connections. Angus Flexible Pipelines Australia has a wide range of flexible pipelines for flood risk available in stock for immediate delivery across Australia, including Super Aquaduct, Flowmaster and Wellmaster.
