Large diameter pipe is produced at AGRU’s cutting-edge XXL Pipe Production Facility in Charleston, SC, delivering better long-term hydraulic properties and operating expense savings. AGRU’s large diameter pipe is extruded from PE 100-RC and offers high corrosion resistance, service life, and UV protection. AGRU’s XXL piping systems provide fast and efficient installation on- and offshore.
XXL Piping Systems by AGRU are available in sizes up to OD 3500 mm and 610 m in length. Fittings are also available. These pipes can tackle a range of applications designed for high-volume flow applications, such as cooling water intakes for power plants, large sewage systems, seawater desalination, or mining jobs. The ductility of PE withstands water hammers and pressure surges, where other materials would crack or burst. XXL piping systems are available in a wide range of SDRs. AGRU pipes adhere to ISO and ASTM International pressure rating procedures.
AGRU large diameter pipes support horizontal directional drilling and other trenchless installation technologies.
The XXL piping system is made from tough, durable extruded polyethylene, which never corrodes. This proven maintenance-free design saves operating costs compared to other solutions made from metallics or concrete. Additionally, polyethylene is highly flexible, lightweight, and easily welded.
