SoluForce is a brand of Pipelife International GmbH, one of the world’s leading suppliers of plastic pipe systems and present in 27 countries.
Pipelife develops, manufactures and distributes a wide range of quality pipe systems. It provides solutions for the complete water cycle, energy and power distribution, for telecommunication networks and for industrial applications.
SoluForce pipeline systems are manufactured at the high-tech Pipelife facility in Enkhuizen, the Netherlands. Like all Pipelife products, SoluForce solutions are developed with constant improvement and innovation in mind. SoluForce pipeline systems focus on reliability, simplicity of installation and use – and, above all, safety. As a trusted expert in its field, Pipelife’s SoluForce brand stands for outstanding competence, extraordinary team spirit and visionary innovation.
The reliability of SoluForce is guaranteed by extensive lab testing and long-term field experience. To assess long-term strength, for example, SoluForce pipes are pressure-tested for over 10,000 hours – equivalent to more than one year – in line with internationally accepted standards.
One of the most important test criteria ensures that the fitting system is stronger than the pipe itself. After corrosion, third party interference is the major cause of conventional pipeline failure. Because SoluForce Light and Classic are completely non-metallic, including the fitting system, they offer the ultimate solution in corrosion resistance. Their resistance to third party interference, earthquakes and landslides has been verified in the lab by falling-weight impact testing, axial load and bending testing. All under the supervision of major oil companies. In-field impact testing with digging machines has shown SoluForce delivers equal or better performance than conventional steel pipe.
Most importantly, SoluForce is field-proven. Our first flow lines were installed in the Middle East in 2000. These pipes have remained in service since then without interruption. Meanwhile, SoluForce has been installed worldwide, both onshore and offshore, at major oil and gas companies. There has never been a report of failure in service.
