In the municipality of Eschenbach in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen, a stream was culverted underground with Flowtite Orange pipes DN 500, SN 5000, PN 1. It is the first time that the highly wear-resistant GRP pipe solution by Amiblu was installed on Swiss soil! The 130 m long culvert was built of pipes and fittings with the special Orange liner and installed with a slope of 12 percent within two weeks only. Flowtite Orange by Amiblu enables the transport of fluids containing highly abrasive solids such as riverbed material (sand, gravel, etc). A second part of the culvert with a length of 150 m will follow in 2019.
