WETEX in its 21st edition will be raising awareness on several environmental activities such as using energy and water sensibly and the main components of sustainable development and green economy. In this spectacular event, Dutco Tennant LLC will be promoting their newest products, services, and innovative technologies, as well as meet decision-makers, investors, buyers from around the world. At this event, we will be displaying our newest additions for the Water sector in collaboration with our partner Frischhut.
Frischhut is hailed as the cast iron experts with more than seven decades of experience in the field. Everything inside the plants revolves around cast iron and currently, various employees produce spheroidal (ductile) and grey cast iron at its own foundry in Neumarkt-St. Veit, Germany. A large part of the products is required by the company to manufacture its own products which are mainly fittings for the water and sewage industry. Commission processing such as high-quality castings for safety-related applications in mechanical engineering, reinforced concrete and bridge construction, as well as special fittings are gaining in importance as the company can react particularly flexible with its own foundry. Their hand molding shop is equipped to produce individual parts, small series or oversized components weighing up to one ton. With its unique combination of traditional manual work, a modern laboratory for quality assurance and the research opportunities arising through being part of the TALIS Group, the company is also able to complete difficult projects punctually and reliably.
They are known all over the world for their impeccable range of DI fittings which will be demonstrated at our stall in WETEX 2019.
Ductile iron pipe and fittings are most commonly used for potable water transmission and distribution. A cast-iron pipe which was superseded has given the development to this type of pipes. The ductile iron used to manufacture the pipe is characterized by the spheroidal or nodular nature of the graphite within the iron.
Ductile iron pipes often have protective internal linings and external coatings that inhibit corrosion. The internal lining is cement mortar and standard external coatings include bonded zinc, asphalt or water-based paint. A lifespan of over 100 years is estimated for ductile iron pipelines and fittings which are installed using "evolved laying practices", including the use of properly installed LPS (polyethylene encasement) but unprotected ductile iron pipe will have shorter lives because of the corrosiveness of the soil present.
