Flanges in (plastic) pipeline construction: from the wooden to the high-perfor­mance solution

There are plenty of examples: Findings of several under­ground masonry sewerage systems even date back to 3,800 BC, in the Antique period. Relics of the water supply systems of cities in the Roman Empire date back to the time before 500 BC. These can still be viewed today as brickwork aqueducts. A further devel­opment in piping technology for water supply systems was marked by the use of hollowed-out wooden trunks in the Middle Ages. Down to the present day, wooden water pipes or fragments of such pipes, which can be dated back to the 17th century, have been found repeatedly during civil engineering work.
