Super Aquaduct flexible layflat pipeline has been designed for all emergency and temporary drinking water delivery operations, and offers major cost savings and performance advantages over conventional rigid pipe.
Fast deployment and retrieval
Long continuous lengths of Super Aquaduct can be quickly deployed and retrieved using a wide variety of systems including light duty trailers, flaking boxes and power-driven reels.
High flexibility and kink resistance allows natural ground contours to be followed without putting stress on the pipeline and eliminates expensive path cutting work. Fewer joints and faster connections mean reduced labour and equipment costs.
Super Aquaduct allows for rapid restoration of water supplies in an emergency.
Easy to store and transport
The hose is lightweight and compact for economical storage. A standard pickup truck instead of flatbed truck and forklift reduces transport costs, and also enables direct routes to be taken that are usually inaccessible to larger vehicles.
Long service life
It is designed for long life and maintenance-free service in even the harshest environments and has exceptional resistance to abrasion and cutting, making it ideal for use on a wide variety of ground conditions.
Super Aquaduct is resistant to fuels, chemicals, UV, ozone, weathering, hydrolysis and microbiological attack. Added to this, the hose is free from corrosion or scaling and you can be assured of no contamination of drinking water supplies.
Low operating costs
Super Aquaduct from Angus Flexible Pipelines Australia had been designed for low pressure loss for efficient pumping. Swells up to ten per cent above uncharged diameter at maximum operating pressure enables more water to be pumped.
Every metre factory tested
Every metre of the Super Aquaduct hose undergoes 18 different tests at our factory so you are assured of its performance. The hose is manufactured in compliance with BS EN ISO 9001:2008 quality management systems – the raw materials, components and finished products are rigorously tested and inspected to ensure excellent product reliability.
Approvals and listings
It features a unique “through-the-weave” one piece construction comprising a circular woven high tenacity polyester reinforcement totally encapsulated in a tough elastomeric polyurethane cover and lining. And a wide range of couplings, manifolds and hardware are available for connecting the pipeline to additional segments, fluid supplies or auxiliary hardware.
It has potable water listings: Regulation 31 UK Drinking Water Inspectorate; USA National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) 61; UK Water Byelaws Scheme (WBS) BS 6920 for use with cold and hot water up to 50°C.
The manufacturing facility operates an Environmental Management System which meets ISO 14001:2004.
