Saint-Gobain Pipelines' Pam Reservoir Pipe is Approved by Secretary of State for use in Public Water Supplies


Saint-Gobain Pipelines, leading supplier of ductile iron pipes and fittings, is now able to offer PAM Reservoir Pipe, making it the only supplier of coated pipes suitable for total immersion in potable water.

PAM Reservoir Pipe is a fabricated pipe that can be used in reservoirs and tanks where both the internal lining and external coating come into contact with potable water. The pipe has approval under Regulation 31 (4) (a) for use in public water supplies – important for any product in contact with drinking water.

The unique Saint-Gobain Pipelines System XL pipe, with a factory applied external coating of blue Copon Hycote 162PWX fully complies with BS EN 545 and has been approved by the Secretary of State as suitable for total immersion in water.

Trevor Padley, Technical Manager says “Using Saint-Gobain Pipelines’ System XL with external epoxy coating allows customers to use ductile iron pipe with the knowledge that they are installing a robust, reliable pipeline with unrivalled longevity, while fully complying with the regulations and standards in place to ensure the drinking water is safe.”

Available from DN 80 – DN 800, the PAM Reservoir Pipe is complemented by the full range of Saint-Gobain PAM Natural Fittings which are also suitable for immersion in potable water. Jointing details and methods are the same as the standard range of Saint-Gobain fabricated pipes and can be found at on the Saint-Gobain webite.
