As engineers, our role extends far beyond designing efficient water systems. We are responsible for safeguarding the safety and well-being of the people we serve. Recent reports highlighting the alarming dangers associated with vinyl chloride, PVC, and plastics have sent shockwaves through numerous communities.
The question looms: How can we confidently plan and design when the very materials we rely on pose a potential threat to the health of our communities?
The answer? American-made Ductile iron pipe.
This innovative pipe material is the definitive choice for engineers prioritizing public health and long-term infrastructure resilience.
For engineers aiming to deliver safe drinking water and instill confidence in communities, Ductile iron pipe is the safe, reliable, and sustainable choice.
- Ductile iron pipe is highly durable and long-lasting, with a minimum average service life of 100 years, making it a reliable choice for water delivery systems.
- Cement-mortar lined Ductile iron pipe has a smooth interior surface and a larger than nominal inside diameter that minimizes minimizes energy loss and maximizes water flow efficiency.
- It is highly resistant to damage from external forces, such as earthquakes and soil movement, ensuring the safety and reliability of water delivery systems.
- Ductile iron pipe is also environmentally friendly, as it is made from recycled, non-toxic, natural materials and can be recycled at the end of its lifespan.
By choosing Ductile iron pipe, engineers can confidently provide their communities with safe, non-toxic, durable, and reliable infrastructure that promotes long-term resilience.
