Vectus Pipe Systems

The Vectus pipe system in glass fibre reinforced polyester and vinylester, also known as the Sarplast system in many other countries, is an important product in civil and industrial sectors. The production method is a discontinuous double helix reciprocal filament winding process, which give the pipes a balanced combination of axial and hoop mechanical properties. The Vectus pipe systems are free of corrosion, lightweight and a well-documented product with good references worldwide. In addition to the civil and industrial markets, the Vectus pipe systems are also widely used in the oil & gas, shipbuilding and offshore industries. Especially within the industrial market, the Vectus pipe system is a widely used and cost-effective solution, also due to the biaxial pipe systems with good locked joint solutions for pipe and fittings. These locked joint systems are also successfully used in municipal water, cooling water and pressure sewerage systems in combination with Flowtite pipes to avoid thrust blocks. The Vectus pipe system also includes a complete range of standardised and special fittings.
