KraussMaffei Berstorff on course for success in large pipe extrusion technology


(Munich, April 28, 2015) In the first quarter of 2015, KraussMaffei Berstorff commissioned multiple large-diameter pipe systems around the world - in a diameter range of 800 - 2000 mm - which solidified its market position in polyolefin pipe processing.

Perfectly tailored system technology

"Particularly in large pipe technology, perfectly tailored system components are indispensable in achieving optimum pipe quality," explains Andreas Kessler, General Sales Manager at the Munich location of KraussMaffei Berstorff. "Three major factors influence the purchasing decision of the processor: high outputs, narrow wall thickness tolerances and precise melting temperature control for the best possible calibration control. This ensures that stringent requirements pertaining to wall thickness and ovality are observed," continues Kessler.

The systems of KraussMaffei Berstorff meet these advanced requirements. These systems combine long-established single-screw technology, a spiral distributor pipe head concept and calibration technology that is designed with these requirements in mind. "In addition, our large pipelines can also be equipped with efficient internal pipe cooling (IPC), which cools the interior as well as the exterior of the pipe and results in an increase in output of up to 60 percent," exclaims Kessler.

High-quality pipes are indispensable because only error-free, flush welding can achieve optimum pressure stability and durability of the installed large pipes and prevent time-consuming pipe rotations during the installation stage.

Active project demand

"We are noticing lively project activity, in particular in the Near East and Middle East, but also in Africa and Southeast Asia," explains Kessler. Soon, additional systems will be commissioned there that will produce large pipes for water pressure applications. These pipes are now becoming a common replacement for concrete or metal pipes due to their excellent product properties, such as a low weight and ease of installation.
