Definition - What does Product Pipe mean?
A product pipe is a pipe used to transport product in the form of gas, oil, water or any other material from one location to another. Product pipes are used to transport large volumes of material over long distances, which is impractical to do via road or other transport methods. Trenchless methods of construction are often used to install product pipes underground.
Trenchlesspedia explains Product Pipe
Product pipes are used to transport liquids or gases from a source to a destination. Some examples include: The transport of petrol from a refinery complex to intermediate depots from which fueling stations are supplied, the transport of water from water treatment plants to reservoirs and then to end users, or the transport of gas across states and cities for residential heating purposes. Pumps are used to push the product through the pipes at a high flow rate. Pipes are routed in such a way as to minimize distance and for safety purposes. For both these reasons, many product pipes are installed underground using trenchless construction methods.
