This short online article cannot do full justice to all the industries being serviced or making use of the piping and its hydraulics. What it can, however, do by way of the briefest of introductions is give a brief motivational account on why it is necessary for most industries to make use of rubber lined pipes rather than just bare concrete if you will.
In fact, bare concrete is still being used. It’s just that it’s not and no longer cost-effective and convenient. Industrial companies not prepared to extend themselves financially in the short-term find themselves having to bear the burden of far heavier costs over the longer term. Not having installed what may have been recommended to them initially, they now find themselves encumbered with rather expensive repairs going forward.
Going forward? You have to wonder about that now. Anyhow, concrete may have a few non-enforceable qualities, but how long do you think it’s going to last, being pounded week in and week out, month after month and indeed, year after year too if that becomes necessary. There is always the inevitable wear and tear. And when this occurs, it is never cheap or easy to repair the damage. And so the saying goes that it is far more prudent to make provision for initial installation expenditure.
And then not have to go through all the damages later on. Rubber lined pipes help piping infrastructure and hydraulics systems withstand the pressures they are placed under and as a result, are able to last a lot longer, intact. You do not see the rubber lining at most. Rather, it lines the inside of the piping. So, whatever liquid forming materials are making its way through the piping cannot do any real damage to the piping infrastructure.
