Acu-Tech Piping Systems had a stand at the Dowerin Field Day, on 29th and 30th August 2018. During the two days, Acu-Tech displayed the new range of Acu-Rural Poly Pipe, including the unique 50m coils of Red Stripe Poly Pipe. Rural Poly Compression Fittings were on display, as well as 100m and 200m Rural Pipe coils. The new Electrofusion joining systems created a lot of interest amongst the farming community. Rather than using Metric Poly Compression Fittings, Farmers could use Electrofusion fittings to join lengths or coils of Acu-Water Poly Pressure Pipe, for irrigation or scheme water applications. Acu-Water blueline poly pipe coils are a favourite of the rural farming community for high and low pressure applications. The rural community showed a lot of interest in Acu-Tech’s rural poly pipe, and the new distribution channel to rural areas through Elders Farm Supplies was appreciated by many.
Extrusion demonstrations showed people how to repair old Poly Water Tanks, and how easy it is to install a new outlet using an extrusion welder. A demonstration of Acu-Tech’s 630mm Dixon Welder (available for hire) was performed by PolyWeld Tech Academy, who showed the method and principles of Butt Welding with two lengths of Co-Ex White HDPE Pipe. Some farmers had used similar butt welding technology for Blueline Pressure pipe over the past decades, but all agreed that on thinner wall Rural Pipe, Rural Poly Compression Fittings were much more reliable.
As a bonus, the Elders pavillion (Including the Acu-Tech stand) was awarded “Most Outstanding Exhibitor 2018”, as judged by a survey of attendees!
