The use of pipes is very important in fields and thus, for agriculture. Pipes ensure the optimal use of water. Most agricultural activities require safe and effective water systems like agricultural irrigation pipes to maximize the crop yield. One other parameter that declares and validates the vital role of pipes in fields is their ability to resist drastic pressure changes.
Let us discuss some pipes manufactured in genius ways that can be used effectively in/for agriculture.
- Agricultural Pipes:
These pipes are made of uPVC and ace when it comes to installing a piping system that enables uninterrupted and safe propagation of water in and around the fields. Similarly, agricultural irrigation pipes promise sufficient supply of water. Their benefits include:
- Light Weight: It isn’t a hefty task to carry around these pipes in case of amendments in your plans. Agricultural pipes and fittings are light in weight and thus, easy to move.
- Corrosion Resistant: It is crucial to guard your crops from anything that will alter their health and quality. Likewise, it is vital that the water used passes through a rust-free system. The pipe’s ability to resist corrosion is of utmost importance which these pipes, quite conveniently, facilitate.
- Borewell Pipes:
Borewell pipes have withstood the test of time and pressure. These pipes are an excellent choice to draw groundwater for fields and farms. Their benefits include:
- Constant Bore Diameter: With a constant diameter, maintenance and supervision becomes considerably less hectic. Also, this ensures a constant supply of water.
- Saves Labour: Borewell Pipes are known for their quality, strength and durability. The installation is a quick and easy process which saves the cost of labour.
- Handles Pressure: These pipes work their way just fine even when the pressure changes from slight to drastic. It usually consists of square threads that facilitate the same.
- Foamcore Pipes for Underground Drainage:
It is equally important for a field to have a reliable drainage system. Foamcore pipes are light weight pipes that have the following benefits:
- Easy Underground Installation: While your drainage plans are full proof and intact, some minor changes are bound to happen in the course of time. To facilitate the same, it proves to be an easy task when pipes can be easily installed within a shorter period.
- No Clogging: Smooth disposal of wastewater will gradually, and eventually, yield quality crops. Foamcore pipes and fittings are manufactured in ways that avoid clogging and hence, prevent obstruction in the flow of water.
As a result, right from irrigation to the final stages of harvesting, pipes act as a catalyst in not just one, but various agricultural processes. Turns out, pipes need to be chosen wisely and a piping system should be established smartly to ensure quality.
There are various types of pipes available in the market for plumbing at residential or commercial buildings. The availability of different pipes confuses the consumer at times, and they end up choosing the wrong pipes for plumbing. The most commonly used pipes in Indian homes are CPVC Pipes and GI Pipes.
Galvanised Iron (GI) Pipes
Galvanised Iron (GI) Pipes are made using mild steel strips of Low Carbon Steel Coils. The steel is processed to be formed into circular shape. The ends of the pipes are welded and made into the size and dimension required. The pipes go through the pressure and leakage test before it reaches the market to be installed in our homes.
GI Pipes are used for plumbing as well as sewage. As the pipes are made up of Iron, they are used structural, engineering and automotive purposes.
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) Pipes
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) Pipes as the name suggests is produced from chlorination of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin which makes it flexible and resistant to temperate from 0℃ to 93℃. Trubore piping systems are one of the major producers of CPVC pipes in India. Their products are manufactured using the world’s best Japanese material and technology.
CPVC Pipes are used in residential & commercial buildings. Due to its proven hot & cold-water performance, CPVC Pipes are also used for public utilities, swimming pools & industrial applications.
CPVC Pipes vs GI Pipes
While both CPVC Pipes and GI Pipes has its own benefits, it is really important to know which pipes are best when it comes to plumbing. GI pipes were traditionally used by builders and architects due to its durable nature. When CPVC pipes were introduced in the market, consumers identified major advantages of the pipes and started using it extensively for Indoor and Outdoor purposes.
There are some major advantages of using CPVC pipes. As compared to GI pipes, CPVC Pipes for homes are durable and are low on maintenance. Another drawback with GI Pipe is that it is not corrosion-resistant. As the pipes are made of iron, a constant flow of water tends to rust GI pipes which can even cause bacterial growth. CPVC Pipes are corrosion resistant and there are very low chances of bacterial growth. Also, the formation builds up inside the GI pipes due to corrosion causes loss of water pressure. That is not the case in CPVC Pipes the pressure of water remains uniform throughout.
CPVC Pipes are flexible and can be easily installed through cold welding whereas GI requires manpower as well as long hours for installation. One needs to take a lot of care while the installation of GI pipes as incorrect installation can cause breakage and leakage problem. Cutting and joining CPVC Pipes is easy as it comes with easily available joints that can be installed easily.
The prices of both the pipes vary. GI Pipes are expensive while the CPVC plumbing system is cost-effective. CPVC pipes can be easily transportable which makes you save on your transportation cost. These pipes are said to last for 50 years. Therefore, it can be safely said that CPVC pipes are the best pipes for Indian homes.
PVC or “Polyvinyl Chloride” is a type of plastic that’s made of 57% chlorine. It’s an eco-friendly substitute for other building materials as it requires lesser crude oil to be manufactured. Due to it’s amazing durability and chemical resistance, PVC is used majorly to produce pipes and fittings across the globe. Trubore is one of the leading brands that offers world-class PVC piping systems.
Benefits of PVC pipes and fittings
PVC pipes are made from thermal resistant material and our products offer proven hot & cold-water performance from 0℃ to 93℃. They don’t catch fire easily as they are not self-extinguishing and requires a constant source of fire for combustion. Like mentioned earlier, our piping systems and fittings are produced from eco-friendly CPVC Compounds, which means that by using them, you would be contributing towards making this world a better place to live in.
At Trubore, you will find the best CPVC pipe which is not only more cost-effective than copper and iron pipes but is also far more durable. Moreover, it doesn’t take much time, effort and labour to install a PVC piping system. They are also light-weight and easy to transport. All these factors will further reduce unnecessary expenses that may be incurred. Since these pipes don’t allow bacterial growth, they are safe drinking water applications. Another notable advantage is that PVC pipes and fittings don’t get degraded even when they are exposed to sunlight for a long time as they are UV resistant.
Application of PVC pipes and fittings
Pipes used for agricultural applications are exposed to different kinds of chemicals, fertilizers and varied temperatures. This makes PVC pipes the ideal choice for irrigation supply and other such applications as they are resistant to acid and most other chemicals. This feature also makes them suitable for public utilities, industrial plants, golf course construction, chemical plants and swimming pools. Due to their thermal resistivity, Trubore Pipes also used extensively for Indoor and Outdoor use in hot & cold-water applications (From 0℃ to 93℃ only).
The easy installation process along with reduced labour and transportation costs, make them ideal for high volume pipe fittings in residential & commercial buildings. Other applications where PVC piping system plays a major role include RO & DM water plants, concealed, down take and terrace looping etc. Trubore also offers a wide range of CPVC fittings such as Ball valve, Blind flange, Coupler, Cross over moulded, Elbow, End cap, Equal tee, Four-way tee, F.t.a, Open flange, Reducer, Tank connector, Transition bush and much more!
