A customer produced the concrete pipes with supports using the upcrete® process for the construction of an overland sewage pipeline for Tel-Aviv.
The customer’s shuttering was filled with the UPP 100 within 90 minutes via the UCI 100 concrete filling connector. The finished concrete pipe weighs over 54 tons and is 8 metres long. Every conceivable type of production was considered but eventually dismissed for reasons of feasibility, economic viability and the necessary quality. Only the upcrete® process and the specially developed pumping station were capable of yielding the desired results.
The manufacturer also uses the upcrete® pump technology at another plant to manufacture jacking pipes as well as for the filling of architecturally complex L-walls.
