FT Technical Centre

The purpose of the FT technical centre is to assist our customers with planning and logistics during the various phases of pipeline projects. For example, we used to receive numerous phone calls asking about the weight of our steel pipes to assist in the handling and transportation process.  The pressure rating of different pipes is also useful to know and a question we are often asked.

So, in response to our customers’ needs, we have developed easy-to-use online calculators for both of these issues. Please be aware that the answers provided are for guidance only and are not exact figures.
