Steel pipe systems for snowmaking

Alvenius' quick-coupled steel pipe system has all the properties needed for snowmaking in the most cost effective way. The complete FlowMax® system meets the requirement of maximum reliability and easy installation.

CORROFLO™ (thermoplastic coating) saves money

FlowMax® steel pipes have a CorroFlo® coating that gives low friction and hence super-low flow resistance and pressure drop.

This means that you can use smaller or fewer pumps 
in the system – or pipes of smaller diameter. 

You´ll make real savings both in investment and operation!

It’s the inner diameter that counts!

It’s the inner diameter that counts!

Due to the high quality of the steel and Alvenius’ unique manufacturing process using spiral welding, the pipes are made with much thinner walls and lower weight 
- while still maintaining a stable profile.

This means you can obtain pipes with a larger inner diameter for the same outer diameter. Cost savings in transport, handling and installation are the outcome!

Surface coating protects against
corrosion and wear

Piping systems are used in tough conditions.
Alvenius FlowMax® piping systems are supplied with a suitable surface coating for maximum service life.

  • CorroFlo®

    Alvenius FlowMax® pipes are coated both internally and externally with CorroFlo®. These pipes are ideal for environments and applications where, for example, acidic water and aggressive chemicals are a problem.
    Tests show that CorroFlo® meets the requirements for the extremely demanding corrosion class SS-EN ISO 12944, which applies to marine environments (C5-M) and underground (Im3). Independent tests show that pipes coated with CorroFlo® offer a service life of more than 50 years.

  • RocShield®

    For extra-durable wear and impact protection, the external surface of the pipes can be treated with RocShield® on top of the CorroFlo® coating. RocShield® is a 500 μm LDPE layer that offers extreme resistance, making it suitable for pipes used in exposed environments. The surface structure with its good gripping properties also offers easier and safer handling.

Fast and easy assembly. Short downtimes.

Fast and easy assembly. Short downtimes.

Installation is straight-forward. No welding. No special tools. No time-consuming training.
All you need are pipes, couplings and a spanner.

Assembly goes at least ten times faster compared to welding and is done entirely without special training or hot work.

Moreover, the weight of FlowMax® CorroFlo® pipes is about 1/3 that of cast-iron pipes, which has a positive effect 
on freight and installation costs.
