Pipes in the decathlon


IMA Dresden tests about 400 metres of pipe every day – that’s the length of a lap in the stadium! The 400 metres are, of course, not tested in one piece, but are divided into about 1,000 individual pieces. The type of tests is so different that one is reminded of a kind of decathlon. The pipes compete in the disciplines of physical, mechanical, hydraulic and acoustic testing. The tests are designed to ensure that all requirements for product conformity, service life, condition assessment, material characterization, quality- and safety standards are met. Sounds exciting? It is!
