McWane Ductile conducts training for Shook Construction
February 18, 2019
McWane Ductile Product Engineer Jerry Regula and Plant Division Sales team member Darcie Keirns recently conducted on-site training at Shook Construction. Topics covered were Ductile 101-Introduction to Ductile Iron Pipe and a Comparative narrative on fabricated and wall pipe, ductile iron pipe (DIP), pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP), high-density polyethylene pipe (HDPE), polyvinyl chloride pipe (PVC), steel pipe and FRB-A. This was a great opportunity to explain why ductile iron is still the most conservatively designed pipe in the water works industry while maintaining a maximum margin of safety against failures.
