GPS PE Pipe Systems has continued its commitment to helping customers manage costs, environmental and technical performance with the introduction of its next generation innovative piping.

A blue PE100 pipe with a black core, Excel New Blue has already been trialled successfully by several water companies and has now been specified for Anglian Water high profile Covenham to Boston pipeline project. Excel New Blue combines standard blue pipe with a black core without compromising any durability, flexibility or performance.

Explains Jon Briafield from GPS: ''Increased oil prices mean rising raw material costs for pipe manufacturers, which, inevitably, means higher pipe costs for customers. While we cannot control raw material costs, our manufacturing experience has enabled us to address this issue creatively by modifying the way we use raw materials in PE100 piping.''

The innovative pipe design reduces the number of different polymers used and stored during the manufacturing process and the amount of waste material created as well as offering a lower energy manufacturing process.

Offering the same levels of durability, flexibility and performance as GPS existing Excel pipe range and compliant to the same EN 12201/WIS 4-32-17 standards, Excel New Blue also provides reduced low sag properties, which make it particularly beneficial for use in projects that require larger pipe sizes.

Jon Briafield adds: ï''As a manufacturer, we have an obligation to our customers to understand the challenges they face and find solutions to help address them. The development of Excel New Blue is a prime example of this customer-driven innovation and clearly demonstrates our ability to enhance our product range to meet changing market conditions.''
