Ham Baker launch Buderus BSL in the UK

Posted: Tuesday 11th September 2007

Buderus Guss the German Ductile Pipe manufacturer has now launched its Buderus BLS restrained socket joint pipe into the UK via Ham Baker Pipelines.

The Pipe has the proven BLS longitudinal force fit joint, which offers free transmission of the pulling forces right through to the last pipe section and flexibility in the joint in order to allow small installation radii

BLS pipe has recently been used on the River Jucar Project in Valencia with 462 metres of 900mm diameter Pipe being installed by using the horizontal directional drilling process, passing under a factory, a major road, a railway line and the Jucar River.

The BLS pipe was chosen ahead of its competitors because of the flexible joint and simplified joint connection which gave quantifiably reduced installation time against all other similar industry products– This is the first time in Europe that such a large diameter of pipe has been laid using this process.

The BLS system is available in both Blue and Red Epoxy Coated to comply with UK specification and in diameters 80 – 1000mm.
