It is mainly distinguished by nonstop manufacture of spiral welded steel cylinders and by radial compression procedure (packer head system) to produce the concrete core of the pipes. This process enables to reach a very high production capacity. The pipes can comply both with European Standards EN 642 and U.S.A. AWWA C301, lined type. A detail of the joint is shown in Fig 1.
