Excellent corrosion resistance:
Unlike steel pipes, uPVC is totally immune to corrosion and offer good resistance to aggressive elements in the soil and normal chemical action, which could cause encrustation of well screens.
These pipes are light in weight and hence transportation and installation becomes much easier. This is a major advantage particularly in remote rural areas where road communications are not satisfactory and well construction is a one-time exercise.
Quick and convenient installation:
These pipes are equipped with good quality threaded joint. Thus Supreme casing pipes and screens are easily assembled and installed where drilling is done by hand with light weight drilling rig or even with large capacity drilling machines.
These pipes have excellent stiffness and meet all the mechanical properties as per the IS 12818 specifications. These pipes have excellent hydrostatic collapse pressure i.e. capable of withstanding the external hydraulic pressure they would be subjected to during well construction.
The material of the pipe is non-toxic and hence does not impart any taste, odour or colour. It does not release any harmful substances to water from well, which could pose health problem. It is free from bacteria and hence absolutely safe for carrying drinking water.
uPVC is non-conductor of electricity, which eliminates any electro chemical action with ground water, which could cause encrustation of screens.
Being free from rusting, weathering and chemical action and due to excellent mechanical properties, Supreme casing pipes lasts for lifetime.
When all the advantages listed above are taken into consideration, it would be seen that in most cases Supreme uPVC casing pipes and screens provide the best cost benefit ratio when compared to other materials or even alternative uPVC casing pipes available in the market.
