FT Pipeline Systems – Steel Water Pipe Suppliers
Leading pipe supplier the Frazer & Tabberer Group has been providing steel water pipes, field joint protection sleeves (Canusa) and stop-tap replacement locking lids to the UK water industry for over 25 years. We are the sole UK supplier for Salzgitter Mannesmann Line Pipe (formerly known as Fuchs Rohr) steel water pipes.
FT Pipeline Systems supplies cement mortar lined, plastic coated steel water pipes in an extensive range of diameters (from 80mm to 3000mm) and joint types (socket weld, butt weld, tyton push-fit connections and the FT E joint). The superior specification makes these water pipes first choice for contaminated and aggressive ground conditions.
Spigot and socket jointing systems are commonly used in low and medium pressure steel pipelines but for potable water pipes and systems where an internal epoxy coating is required, the external fillet weld invariably damages the internal lining. The FT E-Joint overcomes this problem as it includes an air pocket, which drastically reduces the heat transfer to the internal surface.
Marketed alongside the steel water pipes are the high quality heat shrink sleeves (Canusa jointing sleeves), which form a permanently bonded watertight seal on all diameters of pipe. Their flexibility ensures perfect seals on straight runs, junctions and bends.
Our unique anti-vandal locking lids are available in a wide range of sizes and are used by virtually every water company in the UK, saving them thousands of pounds each year.
