Press Release Summary:
Hobas pipe is used for transmission of sewage, corrosive liquids, and wastewater. Centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced polymer mortar pipe is resistant to both corrosion and ultra-violet attack. Its leak-free, push-together, gasket-sealed joints provide ease of installation. Standard 20 ft lengths require 1 support for each pipe section, and are available in all diameters. Hobas Pipe is manufactured in sizes from 18 in. to 102 in.

Some Hobas Pipe Is Above It All
Although most Hobas pipe is installed below ground and out of sight, some of it is highly visible in above ground installations often referred to as aerials. Such piping is used for both municipal and industrial applications including transmission of sewage, corrosive liquids and wastewater.
Hobas Pipe's characteristics make it ideal in above ground installations for non-pressure service. This centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced polymer mortar pipe is inherently resistant to both corrosion and ultra-violet attack.
The pipe's high strength to weight ratio and stiffness are also major advantages in aerial installations. Lightweight Hobas Pipe can usually be installed with less expensive machinery such as a cherry picker and sling, reducing handling costs. Its constant OD and dimensional consistency also simplify above ground installation. Leak-free, push-together, gasket-sealed joints make assembly quick and easy.
Standard twenty-foot lengths of Hobas Pipe, which require only one support for each pipe section, are available in all diameters. These long spans are another cost-saving feature applicable to above ground installations.
Maintenance costs are also low because Hobas Pipe doesn't require coatings, painting or cathodic protection to provide corrosion and weathering resistance.
Hobas Pipe is manufactured in sizes from 18 inches to 102 inches in pressure and non-pressure classes.
