Concrete pressure pipe fabricated at the Palatka plant facility. The pipe consist of welded steel cylinder enclosed in concrete, wrapped with high tensile reinforcing wire, and coated with cement-mortar. Fabrication of pipe is made in an enclosures using steel forms setup by mobile cranes and casted with concrete from stationary mixer/batching plant. Pipe is wrapped with reinforcing steel at high tension and cement-mortar coated. Curing is done using steam at high temperature. Pipe is yarded using forklifts.
Preparation of test specimens and testing them requires physical work of light to medium nature. Inspection of pipe requires light to medium physical nature as well
