The STURDA PIPE puts an innovative spin on traditional decant pipes. Covered in geotextile materials specifically tailored for underground mining applications, STURDA PIPES are utilized to remove water from wet areas within the mine. They are also specially designed to work with the STURDA WEIR to remove residual water that may be left in the sill ensuring a dry and strong binder.
Much like a flat garden hose, STURDA PIPE comes in a roll of varying sizes and can be laid flat on the mine floor. In addition to eliminating instances of blinding up, the combination of the durable geo-textile cover and lay flat design limits damage to the pipe when it is run over by machinery or vehicles, resulting in a longer lasting pipe, reducing the need for replacements.
