Flexible Riser Hose System has been specifically designed to replace rigid steel riser pipes which are heavy, difficult to handle, and are subject to rust and encrustrations. Internal scaling of steel riser pipes reduces flow rates and pump efficiency. Risers such as PVC and Polythene pipe can be brittle or bend, and are generally harder to handle. There is no safety cable required when using Flexibore due to its high tensile strength.
These include mine de-watering, domestic and municipal water supply, test pumping, rural and industrial bore-water retrieval and similar ground water projects.
Flexibore is attached to the pump with the patented couplings. The pump, with hose and cables attached, is lowered into the bore using either a simple rolling wheel or a crane. With its continuous length, the hose can be installed with less time and labour than rigid systems, this includes poly pipe. The same advantages apply to pump retrieval.
