Akplas, established in 1989 with the production of spare parts; began to produce all types of clamped sprinkler pipes and the equipments in 1995,
followed by the latched sprinkler pipe production in 1998.
In 2003, Akplas developed the clamped product group and commenced production by patenting the spring clamped product group.
In 2004 the round drip irrigationa
pipe within the agricultural irrigation pipe group was began to be produced as 2lt and 4lt
Also, PE infrastructure pipes, between 16 and 400 diameters which have big importance in agricultural irrigation and which are infrastructure products were began to be produced in the same year while AYPE aral started to be produced between 16 and 160 diameters
started to be produced between.
Sprinkler irrigation pipes withstand 6 atm pressure but all elements of the system may not work under this pressure. For example, the number of sprinklers used or the sprinkle flow rate can damage the sprinkler operation under this pressure. As such, sprinkler irrigation systems should be operated at 2-3 bar levels.
Polyethylenes defined with petrochemical development are classified according to their density LDPE/Low Density Polyethylene, MDPE/Medium Density Polyethylene and HDPE/High Density Polyethylene. High Density Polyethylenes have more strength than others. MRS (Minimum Required Strength) value has been calculated as 8 for MDPE and 10 for HDPE products. This allows for more fluid to pass through due to a higher strength at lower wall thickness for HDPE. MDPE products, on the other hand, provide advantages in cracks and splitting caused by external impacts with a larger wall thickness value.
