Abrasion- and corrosion-free long-life high pressure flexible pipelines

Mining

The perfect solution for mining applications

The unique properties of the SoluForce system make it perfectly suitable for transporting ore, minerals, water, slurry, chemicals and other fluids in mining environments.

Large sums of money are invested each year in the maintenance and replacement of damaged pipelines. In general, the life time of conventional (steel) pipes are relatively short due to abrasion and corrosion, and often cannot cope with the challenging environment in which they are installed.

With a strong focus on reliability and sustainability, all SoluForce pipeline components can resist extreme loads and adhere to ridged safety standards typically found in mining operations. The SoluForce system is designed for static and dynamic operations and does not suffer from corrosion, resulting in an extremely reliable and safe solution. 

Due to the flexibility of the SoluForce pipe, the entire system can easily cope with the drastic environmental and climatic challenges and changes typically found in mining applications.

The SoluForce system is engineered to resist abrasion from solids as well as corrosion from fluids that are transported in mining applications. This means that the SoluForce system lasts much longer than alternatives. In fact, when operating within the specs of the pipe, maintenance work is not needed during the life time of the pipe (which can be up to 50 years), preventing down time and saving considerable time and investment.

With pipe lengths of up to 400 meter per coil, the SoluForce system can be installed quick and easy. Add the relative low cost and short delivery times, and you’ll understand why an increasing amount of mining operators choose SoluForce as their go-to pipeline solution.

SoluForce is revolutionizing the mining industry by offering solutions that are:

  • Resistant to abrasion and chemicals
  • Corrosion- and maintenance free
  • Short lead-times and quick to install
  • Flexible and light weight
  • Reusable
  • Low cost 

Pipe Types

SoluForce Flexible Composite Pipe (FCP also known as Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe or RTP) solutions are comprehensive yet economic. For example, you can opt for pipes-and-fittings only, or extend this with a range of services and support.

These include installation equipment for rent or purchase, and training of international and local workforces in the use of the SoluForce system. All so you can speed up installation and reduce your labour needs – safely. We can also assist you with project management and help you find the right people for your project. Or a combination of the above.

Because the SoluForce system can be completely non-metallic, including the fitting system, they are scaling- and corrosion free. All SoluForce pipe systems have a smooth bore, which ensures a much lower flow-resistance and improved flow capacity. Moreover, their resistance to third party interference, earthquakes and landslides has been extensively proven and verified.

All SoluForce solutions comply with international standards (including API and ISO). Visit our track record page for more information on various SoluForce applications.

SoluForce Light ST 3D Render

Light

Reinforced with synthetic fibre, SoluForce Light has a LCLRCRT ranging from 36 bar/ 522 psi up to 45 bar/ 653 psi. SoluForce Light provides an excellent and low cost solution for low to medium pressure.

SoluForce Classic ST 3D Render

Classic

Reinforced with synthetic fibre, SoluForce Classic has a LCLRCRT ranging from 90 bar/ 1305 psi up to 113 bar/ 1639 psi. Being fully metal-free, it is ideal for even the toughest applications. The GT (Gas Tight) version has the added benefit of being non-permeable.

SoluForce Heavy ST 3D Render

Heavy

Reinforced with high-strength steel wire, SoluForce Heavy has a Pburst,min ranging from 243 bar/ 3524 psi up to 450 bar/ 6527 psi. The GT (Gas Tight) version has the added benefit of being non-permeable, and the HT (Hight Temperature) version can transport fluids at temperatures of up to 105°C/225ºF – a level of performance unmatched by any other flexible composite pipe available today.

SoluForce 3D Render Heavy HT

High Temperature (HT)

Our SoluForce Heavy HT has a design temperature of 105°C/ 225ºF and actual operating temperature of 85°C/ 185°F – a level of performance unmatched by any other Flexible Composite Pipe (or RTP) available today.

SoluForce Heavy GT 3D Render

Gas Tight (GT)

With a uniquely manufactured bonded aluminum layer, light components and gasses are not able to permeate out of the SoluForce GT pipe. Resulting in the industries only completely Gas Tight Flexible Composite Pipe (or RTP) system.

SoluForce Fitting Solutions

High performance fitting solution, providing reliable connectability.

The SoluForce Fittings Systems

With the electrofusion and single swage fitting solutions, the fluid never come into contact with the metal parts of the fitting system.

For higher pressures or extreme mining operations, the heavy duty double swaged fitting system in combination with SoluForce Heavy is the system of choice. This system is optimized for high axial loads and dynamic operations. Any flange type is possible, connected to the fitting using Grayloc or weld stub.

All fittings can be disconnected quickly to allow for easy relocation of the pipeline.

SoluForce 3D Render Electro Fusion end fitting

Electrofusion fittings

The non-metallic fittings and connectors used with the SoluForce Light, Classic and Heavy systems rely on electrofusion. Electrofusion requires only limited equimpent and crew to create a safe connection. It's quick and proven to be maintenance-free and durable.

SoluForce 3D Render Single Swage end fitting with insert

Single swage fittings

For onshore high pressure applications our single swaged fitting system, with non-metallic lining, is the fitting system of choice. The single swage system is fully corrosion free and combines strength with cost effectiveness.

SoluForce 3D Render Double Swage end fitting

Double swage fittings

For high performance and offshore operations, SoluForce offers heavy duty double swaged fitting system. This fitting system is optimised for extremly high pressures, high axial loads and dynamic operation. It's available as standard with Grayloc connections, but weld stub and other user-specific connections are possible.

Multiple flange ratings are available. All steel parts can be produced according to your material specifications.

Service and Support
SoluForce fittings and connectors are easy to install and need only limited crew and equipment. Installations can be supported by a SoluForce technician or a local contractor can be trained to install the system.
