RPM head walls are new to the market and are made of different material to that of other manufacturers. RPM’s head walls are made from fibre glass, which give you a very strong head wall at a minimal weight. Fibre glass has been proven to last a very long time in all weather conditions.

RPM head walls are quite easy to move into place by yourself with no need to hire a machine which cuts down on the price of installation.

RPM head walls will give you that finished touch and improves your water flow.

All up, RPM Pipe combined with RPM head walls will give you the complete package, good pipe, good head walls and easy to install.

  • Extra Strong, Light Weight
  • Fibre Glass Construction
  • Easy, Single Person Installation
  • Improved Water Flow

RPM can fabricate any of their pipe into a number of things including pump wells, T pieces, any angle that you want 45, 90 degrees or anything in between, Y junctions and manifolds just to mention a few. RPM can make one off pieces just for your specific needs.

  • Custom design to suit your needs
  • Pump Wells
  • “T” Pieces
  • 45, 90 or Custom Angle Joins
  • “Y” Junctions

RPM water and feed troughs have been developed with farmers in mind.

Water troughs come with 80mm outlets for easy cleaning and 25mm float valve.

Water troughs are available in 1.9m lengths with the float valve then you just add combinations of 2.4m long sections that join easily via an 80mm joining system

You can make the troughs as short or as long as you need.

Feed troughs are the ideal way to feed your stock, as it also cuts the cost of feeding due to next-to-no waste.

Feed troughs will also be 2.4m long for ease of delivery and handling around the farm.

All troughs have galvanised feet, the ends are screwed on and welded which makes for a very robust trough.

  • Easy to clean
  • Tough Robust Design
  • 80mm Drain Outlet
  • 25 mm Float Valve (Water Troughs)
  • Galvanised Feet

Conclusion

Samples of DN300, DN400, DN450 and DN630 recycled PE pipe supplied by Recycled Plastic Pipe Manufactures Pty. Ltd. were tested for pipe Stiffness in accordance with AS/NZS 1462:22:1997 and given a stiffness rating in accordance with AS/NZS 1260:2002 and AS/NZS 1254:2002. Pipe sizes DN400, DN450 and DN630 were found to meet the requirements of SN4 according to both AS/NZS 1260:2002 and AS/NZS 1254:2002. The DN300 pipe sample was found to meet the requirements of SN6 and SN4 rating in.
