Air Supply Channels (in filter beds of treatment plants)
Encasing Metal Pipe in Power Plants
Encasing Steam Lines
Channel pipe is made by scoring pipe lengthwise so it can be separated into halves on-site. To separate the halves, use a wide mason’s chisel and hammer in the kerf. Tap one to two times at the bottom, middle and top of each side or until the halves separate.
Packaging and weight are the same as straight sections of pipe.
"Forty percent of our system is clay...We televised these lines based on the original risk equation, which indicated that due to age, these should be our areas of most significant risk. But they haven't degraded at all over time. Based on the way these pipes look they could easily last 200, 300 or 400 years."
