TERAKAN pipe combines the latest achievements in production of plastic materials and tried-and-tested manufacturing technology. TERAKAN pipe structure is double layered with profiled exterior and smooth inner surface, resembling it's predecessor, the MAPIKAN pipe.
TERAKAN pipes are constructed entirely PP-B materials (polypropylene blockcopolymer) This material has been developed specifically for non-pressure pipes with high ring stiffness and is the latest trend in construction of sewage and drainage pipes.
Advantages of TERAKAN pipe systems
durability - life expectancy over 100 years
compliance with EN standards - SIST EN 13476-3
simple and safe handling and installation
superb hydraulic properties
superb chemical durability
superb mechanical properties over wide temperature range - good shock resistance at low temperatures, great at high temperatures
high temperature durability - resistant to temperature damage up to 600C, in short bursts even up to 900C
highly abrasion resistant - abrasive particles cause reduced wear-and-tear
reduced weight of the pipe equates to easier and safer handling and installation
environmentally friendly solution - used material is 100% recyclable, absolute water-tightness of entire system prevents any damage to the environment
complete solution - all system elements (pipes, fittings, shafts) are made of identical material
flexibility during treatment and joining - all classic joining, treatment and welding methods apply
low overall system costs
pipe flexibility - can handle large deformations without structural damage, ground movement also tolerated
TERRAKAN - Dimensions
Terakan pipes are made in accordance with SIST EN 13476-3 standard and are classified by inner DN/ID diameter, ranging from 200mm to 1000mm
SN 8 kN/m2
SN 16 kN/m2
When is it recommendable to use TERAKAN SN 16 kN/m2?
In city centres:
because of large traffic and other stresses
because they offer maximum safety to design engineers, project managers and investors alike
because it is difficult to ensure optimal installation conditions, due to number of pre-existing installations
because the cost of potential repairs greatly outweighs initial investment costs
in combination with traffic and other stresses
for transverse connections on highways
landfill and dams, where coverage exceeds 30m
at high coverage in combination with ground water and traffic encumbrance
Everywhere, where the combination of stress, ground conditions and installation conditions demands it.
