Wooden Water Pipe Replaced with Ductile Iron

FT Ductile has recently exported 5km of 1000mm ductile iron pipe to Sweden. The new pipeline was required to replace an old 1000mm wooden pipe to a Swedish paper mill.

The customer had a window of two weeks during a factory shutdown and required the new pipe to be delivered within that timeframe.  FT Ductile won the contract based on our ability to deliver the goods quickly – from order placement to delivery in just twelve weeks. The customer was delighted with the fast turnaround and excellent service from FTD.

Wooden water pipes were once a popular choice throughout European towns and cities as the material was readily available. These days, with new technology and innovative products, the water and wastewater infrastructure has vastly improved.
