UPVC Pipes (PN 6)
UPVC Pipes (PN6)
Grekkon Limited offers this product at the most attractive price around which satisfy the requirements of both strength and durability.
Grekkon Limited’s UPVC pipes (PN 6) in irrigation have a standard length of 6m. Our UPV pipes (PN 6) have these sizes; 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 63mm, 75mm, 90mm, and 110mm. Other larger sizes are manufactured on order. In irrigation systems, the larger pipes are used as mains and the smaller ones as sub mains.
The pipe size is determined by the amount of water required per area. Large farms will use large pipes, while small crop units will use small pipes.
What determines the thickness choice?
- Water pressure. The pressure at which water will flow within. For instance, a farmer whose water flow is gravitational will use the lowest gauge, which is PN 6. Another grower using a water pump will use a thicker pipe that withstands the pump pressure. The greater the pressure from the water pump, the thicker the pipe is.
- External exposure. Some growers opt to lay pipes on the surface, but most use them while buried underneath the surface. The former will use thicker pipes that withstand the risk of mechanical damage, and prolonged exposure to UV radiation. The latter will use PVC pipes of lower thickness because the pipes have very low exposure to mechanical damage, and are not exposed to the sun’s degrading UV radiation.
PVC pipes have a long usable lifespan that extends to decades. Thicker pipes and buried pipes will last longer. We supply fittings designed for use with PVC pipes to join them together, and with other accessories and material. Every fitting is of the same diameter size as the pipe, but always thicker.
Our irrigation grade UPVC pipes (PN 6) are available in our Nairobi, Eldoret and Nyeri stores within Kenya.
