Tubi USA launches modular extrusion plants for on-site production of HDPE pipe

News 16.11.2020

Tubi USA Inc. has launched a patented Mobile Modular Extrusion system which reduces logistics, installation, and handling costs for the manufacture and installation of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe for the mining, oil and gas, irrigation, and municipal water and wastewater industries.

The breakthrough modularized production units operate at Tubi’s sites or each client’s site, directly reducing the cost of pipe transportation and ensuring a certainty of supply at each plant for exclusive client use or for other customers. These mobile extrusion plants can be packed onto flatbed trucks and hauled to project sites in 72 hours to manufacture HDPE pipe for a wide range of infrastructure projects. In the current pandemic, Tubi can move its modular plants where needed and operate at 100% capacity compared to traditional pipe manufacturers in permanent facilities who may face capacity limitations in a down market.

“Our game-changing modular technologies address the needs of an ever-increasing and far-spanning global community,” said Marcello Russo, Tubi CEO. “With our geographies widening, there is a real demand to utilize more efficient, flexible and sustainable methods of operation.” The new technology eliminates the risk of handling large pipe lengths while delivering sustainability advantages by reducing truck traffic. The mobile factories can be moved to strategic locations, thus providing increased flexibility compared to conventional brick-and-mortar plants.

Tubi - an accredited and certified pipe manufacturer - provides the highest quality standards which are directly integrated into this technology, with a world-class quality control unit incorporated within the modular design. The company utilizes inline x-ray and center wave technology processes along with the pipe standard requirements which yield high-quality HDPE pipe with a long service life and proven durability.Public road transportation is currently seen as the only viable way of delivering pipe, rendering the extrusion of long length pipe impossible, according to the company. Tubi’s modular extrusion plant offers unprecedented lengths of weld-free pipe produced directly on-site, reducing up to 95% of conventional weld joints. The plant can extrude 4- to 26-in pipe and has capability up to 48” in lengths of 500 feet or more. Each modular extrusion factory has 20 million lb of annual capacity.

The two new Florida plants have significant technological upgrades with production lines capable of the highest production rates and the most advanced quality control monitoring in the world. Previously, the Florida HDPE pressure pipe markets were geographically isolated from HDPE pipe manufacturing plants. The direct access to the new Tubi plants in central Florida reduces freight and installation costs, improves safety, reduces carbon emissions, and creates local jobs.

Tubi also currently operates a mobile extrusion plant in Odessa, Texas with plans to move a fourth new mobile extrusion plant to Tucson, Ariz. to serve the Southwest mining industry.

In New Zealand, Tubi’s mobile manufacturing unit produced 105 miles of HDPE pipe for irrigation of 50,000 acres of farmland. The logistics of delivering pipe in this rural area were significantly improved. The irrigation pipe was produced on-site in 100-meter lengths (328 feet). IPLEX NZ, an existing pipe producer in New Zealand, bought the plant from Tubi and operates it under license.
