Reduced installation time with customized prefabrications
Refurbishing the whole in-house cast iron pipe installation of their water utility plant in the shortest possible time was the major target of the management of DESWA water company in order to ensure supply of drinking water to the inhabitants of Dessau. Besides this maintaining the architectural structure of the building as well as considering the existing measuring and control technology was a focus to be obeyed. Thanks to the early involvement of Reinert-Ritz technicians the assigned engineering office specified prefabricated assemblies made of PE100 based on tailor-made fittings matching the requirements of the existing installation. Using 3D measuring of the old assembly we were able to design and supply prefabs made of corrosion free PE100 pipes and fittings in dimensions ranging from d 140 mm up to d 400 mm comprising special flanges, HP-flanges, elbows, bents and t‑pieces with additional 1” and 2” threaded branches to connect the existent measuring and control technology. Installers as well as the management were happy about the easy and quick installation of the prefabs supplied.
All targets were met: the water supply could be re-established in a very short time.
