PE Pipe Floats (PS or PU filled)

Our Pipe Floats are commonly used for dredging, mining and drainage of waste materials, as well as for cables. Both our systems (PF250 Modular and Clamshell) are made from HDPE, ensuring a lifespan three times that of concrete or steel pipe floats. It is also highly recyclable. Clamshells are filled with either PU (polyurethane) or PS (polystyrene) so should any cracking or damage occur, they will remain buoyant until they are replaced. The modular floats come in sets of three or five, joined with adjustable brackets to ensure a tight fit around your pipe. They can also be double stacked, for projects with heavier loads.

The clamshells are manufactured in four different sizes with 220ltr, 600ltr, 800ltr and 1000ltr capacity:
