Dewatering Solutions That Resist Impact
Mine dewatering is an essential part of resource extraction, as it lowers the water table around the mine or quarry. The process is necessary to ensure stability of mine walls during and after excavation, and to prevent flooding in underground mines.
Pexgol’s excellent mechanical properties offer mine operators a best in class solutions. Made of a unique formulation of Crossed-Linked Polyethylene, Pexgol (PEX-a) pipes are resistant to creep, Slow Crack Growth (SCG), corrosion, low and high temperatures, and impact. They are also flexible and highly strain-resistant, preventing failure due to water hammer.
With Pexgol coils, you can easily deploy a line with minimal joints and use the pipe’s flexibility to streamline with shafts and turns that are typical to underground environments. By reducing connection, mechanical joints can be used in a cost effective way, further reducing installation time.
Using coils or long spools reduces dramatically the number of required pipe connections, leading to an increase in reliability and lowering your environmental impact assessment.
Reducing connections also cuts costs associated and significantly reduces installation time.
Dewatering Made Easy with Long Coils
Pexgol pipes can be supplied in long length coils (up to Ø12″) or sticks (up to Ø24″), making them a great solution for dewatering lines.
More of Pexgol’s advantages:
- Exceptional creep resistance
- Excellent environmental stress cracking resistance (ESCR)
- Impervious to scratches and stone impingement (SCG)
- Features a continuous self-supporting pipe section with no need to anchor the vertical pipe section to the peer wall
- Resistance to UV radiation, even if exposed to sunlight
