KUCHING: Weida Integrated Industries Sdn Bhd will be unveiling its new FLOLINE FLEXISS pipe systems at the International Water and Wastewater Exhibition and Conference (BIWWEC) 2022 on Tuesday (Oct 18).
The FLEXISS pipe range is an extension to the existing FLOLINE 3W High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) profiled pipes with additional features.
The HDPE profiled pipes have been widely accepted and used as drainage culverts in Sarawak for the past 20 years.
Like the FLOLINE 3W, the FLEXISS is also a profiled or structured wall pipe for gravity-flow applications in conveying storm water and wastewater.
Also made from HDPE, the FLEXISS is manufactured with diameters ranging from 300mm to 2500mm using the spiral-wound technology.
Weida stated that the strength of FLEXISS pipes could be customised to any specific load requirement imposed on the pipe.
As the manufacturing process allows the flexibility of making different profile wall structures, it results in different pipe strengths while allows civil engineers to optimise the design for their drainage works.
Apart from offering culvert solutions, Weida can provide drainage pipeline networks and storm water detention systems (OSD) using the FLEXISS pipes.
Manholes, manifolds, and vertical risers can be fabricated out from the FLEXISS pipes to make OSDs which allow regular servicing and maintenance.
Weida stated the FLEXISS pipes systems are buried underground thus resolving the perennial safety problems and health hazards associated with existing large open-drainage systems.
“With closed drainage systems using FLEXISS pipes, the urban community will not need to bear with the sight and stench of rubbish-clogged drains.
“Moreover, road users will no longer face the danger of falling into big open drains,” it said.
Weida added that urban land use would be more efficient with a buried drainage system.
