Water extraction from a middle pool to the exterior of the mine
The harsh environmental conditional where Codelco needed to install dewatering lines at the open cast mine, made the engineers opt for a change in their pipe material. They consider Pexgol as an option to decrease the repetitive failures they had with former materials.
A 400 meters Pexgol pipe 160 mm Class 19 was provided, in one section without joints. The Pexgol pipe allowed a quick, reliable and easy installation on the harshest conditions of the open cast mine.
