Flexible Pipe Installation

Flexibore can be installed one of three ways, depending on the bore depth, access space and pump weight. Installation can be:

  • crane assisted
  • vehicle assisted
  • hand assisted

Our unique flexible riser can be easily installed with the correct equipment and installation steps.

Crane assisted flexible pipe installations are the most common and require 2 Flexibore hose clamps plus the crane or lifting device.

For your flexible riser to function accordingly, you need to abide by the following installation steps.

Firstly, roll out the coil of hose and secure the electrical power cable to it. Position the pump alongside the hold and connect the flexible pipe coupling and riser.

Secondly, fit the clamp above the coupling and raise the pump into position above the hole. Lower the clamp until it supports the pump on the bore casing. The cable can also be attached to the flexible riser. Remember to leave extra cable room to cover riser stretch under maximum load. The electrical cable must be ‘bowed’ between strapping points.

Thirdly, secure the flexible riser with the second clamp and use the crane to lift the hose, taking the weight off the first clamp. Undo the first clamp and lower the pump. Repeat this process until the end of the hose is reached Finally, fit the final bore head assembly to the end of the Flexibore for installation completion. Our unique flexible pump can be installed using a roller, depending on the space.
