KPS piping is a modern alternative to outdated steel piping

Problem

The installer traditionally used steel piping in installations on sites across Russia but had begun to find working with heavy steel pipes outdated. This is due to the time installation takes, the customer was looking to move towards the now industry standard of using plastic pipe for fuelling, combined with OPW shut-off valves.

Solution

The installer ALFA LEVL GRUP presented Taftnet with KPS piping as a modern solution to steel piping, Taftnet decided to upgrade to plastic conductive piping which requires the minimum possible number of welds for this and forthcoming installations thanks to the safe, easy-install solution it provides.

KPS piping combined with OPW shut-off valves creates a reliable fuelling solution

KPS piping reduces installation time

Result

Taftnet has successfully upgraded to the industry standard of using plastic pipe for fuel alongside OPW shut-off valves, they now have a long-lasting solution that reduces previous installation time and simplifies fitting for the team.
