BUTTING supply corrosion-resistant riser pipes

Ready-for-installation components and prefabricated pipework for drilling and well construction technology must display a high degree of functional safety and corrosion resistance. Selecting the most suitable material is crucial here, as is high-quality processing. Recently, BUTTING was able to put its ability to the test for an order in America.

Drought caused by climate change and increasing population numbers, combined with declining supplies of fresh water are forcing a rethink and the use of new technologies to produce drinking water. In America, they are meeting this challenge with efficient water management and the increasing construction of innovative well concepts.

At its main plant in Knesebeck, BUTTING produced riser pipes with an overall weight of more than 33 T for an innovative well system. Measuring 812.8 × 10 mm (32″) in material 1.4404, the pipes were manufactured both in standard lengths of 5.80 m and shorter lengths specifically for this project. As part of prefabrication, both pipe ends were fitted with a welding-neck flange. After pressure and X-ray testing, the riser pipes were shipped in containers directly to America.
