“We have been happy with the support and service that we have received from the Marley Pipe Systems team.”
– Alwyn Grabie, Sales Manager – Tech North, Steelpoort
Tech North, Steelpoort is a leading provider of mining supplies to mines in the areas from Polokwane to Machadodorp, and has supplied Marley’s range of Philmac compression fittings to the Modikwa Platinum Mine since 2005.
Tech North cited that the reason for considering Marley Pipe Systems as their preferred supplier of compression fittings for the Modikwa Platinum Mine was that they are the exclusive South African supplier of Philmac compression fittings to the local market.
According to Alwyn Grabie, Sales Manager at Tech North, “What is different about the Philmac compression fittings range that sets it apart from other compression fittings is that the installation process is very simple, and it affords significant time-savings to the mine.”
Philmac offers a 16 bar rated fitting that complies with various requirements and specifications, and has also received a Certificate of Acceptance from JASWIC.
The Philmac fitting design uses the mechanical advantage of the nut thread to place the seal into a compressed position, which means that there is no resistance when inserting the pipe into the fitting, and it eliminates any damage or displacement to the seal during installation.
“We have received no complaints or concerns about the Philmac compression fittings that we supply to the Modikwa Platinum Mine, and have been happy with the support and service that we have received from the Marley Pipe Systems team.”
