FRANK GmbH use for more than 40 year plastic pipe systems for different high stressed applications. Especially for sewage pipelines flexible materials with tight welded socket connection are in advance against inflexible and stuck pipe systems. By durable tight systems an infiltration of ground water resp. a leakage of polluted sewage can be avoided. These experiences lead to the development of profiled sewer system PKS. Homogeneous, durable tight sewer systems in all current dimensions can be manufactured of this system.
PKS pipes are manufactured of PE and PP . That way the most important demand to sewer pipes, manholes and storm water tanks, even a durable tight system can be.
By using the flexible material polyethylene even temporary overloading on the pipe system can be nearly and fully compensate. Therefore, PKS pipes are suited for highly stressed pipe- and manhole constructions. Rain water collectors, landfill manholes, drain pipes and drain water collectors can be put in execution with PKS pipes economical and technical. The components can be pre-assembled and completed and therefore a short installation time at site is necessary.
Cost-effective lasting solution
Considering the communes have to invest billions for the renovation of sewage pipeline in the future. In view of less budget in public, there is a need of lasting cost reduction for public sewage disposal. Each citizen wishes to have minimum cost for waste water but also a guaranteed and safe installation. The life expectancy of PE raw material is minimum 100 years and therefore the costs for accrual can be reduced drastically, depending on calculation even halved. The decision for an economic and lasting solution in a modern sewage pipe system with a future-proofed material like polyethylene should be easy.
The PKS profile sewer pipe systems is made of a light and dimensionally stable profile pipe from DN 300 up to DN 4300 and the corresponding fittings, manholes and connection fittings, like the later house connection. All components are produced of the high resistant and long-living materials PE 100 and PP.
PKS sewage pipes features by the outer profile and the clear inside surface. DN 300 pipe has an integrated electrofusion socket. Generally, manholes and constructions made of PKS pipe are delivered with a smooth in- and outside but a profiled wall. The material PPR (polypropylene) is available for sewage pipelines with higher temperatures from DN 300 up to DN 4300. All pipe-, manhole- and fitting components are specially designed for the installation in sewer pipelines and requirements to underground engineering. When developing the profile sewer pipe we aim to combine the advantage of profiled PE 100- as well as PP pipes with a durable tight homogeneous pipe connection and an easy installation.
PKS-Profil-type PR with integrated electro fusion socket
PKS-profiles of type PR have an excellent high ring stiffness at a very low pipe weight. This PR type is installed for buried sewer pipes up to a nominal diameter of DN 4300. The connection of each pipe is done via electro fusion up to a nominal diameter of DN 2300. Parallel to the electro fusion welding also the extrusion welding can be used from DN 300 up to DN 4300. The pipes will be delivered with integrated spigot and socket end.
