You can rely on us to deliver on time, with the right functionality and at an overall level of quality that eliminates bottlenecks in the project.

Low flow resistance

FlowMax pipes with CorroFlo coating have unbeatable low flow resistance and fricton.

  • Very smooth surface, Ra = 0.09-0.12
  • Low flow resistance Roughness, k = 0.05 (Colebrook-White), C=150 (Hazen-Williams)

This means potential savings of up to 50% in energy consumption because the use of smaller pumps.

Or you can design the pipe system with a smaller diameter and still get the needed result.
