Considerations for Underwater Applications

Ductile iron pipe with boltless ball and socket joints is an extremely versatile product for use in subaqueous construction. Important in this context is the flexibility and the restraint against joint separation provided by the ball and socket. In addition, the proven strength and durability of Ductile iron pipe assure a trouble-free installation and a maintenance-free pipeline. The high-pressure rating and large safety factors used in the design of this pipe also provide assurance against unforeseen pressure increases.
