TDI is delighted to announce that Angus Flexible Pipelines has joined The Dewatering Institute (TDI) as a Company Member. Angus Flexible Pipelines head offices and manufacturing facility are situated in the United Kingdom.

Angus Flexible Pipelines has been supplying flexible rising main systems for mine dewatering for over 50 years. Wellmaster, offers exceptional strength and hydraulic efficiency as well as major cost savings and performance and safety advantages over conventional rigid polyethylene, glass fibre, galvanised and steel pipes. Wellmaster is in use across the world from the mountains of Chile to the deserts of Egypt and the Australian outback.

Rodger Collins, International Sales Manager – Industrial Hose said, “ We are excited to join The Dewatering Institute and join the vast experience of industry leading professionals.”


In many applications involving fluid transfer the use of rigid pipe introduces severe limitations which can be overcome by the use of layflat hoses. The speed of deployment and retrieval, the small storage foot print and the ability to adapt to changing topography are just a few examples.

Additionally, the reduction in the number of joints delivers environmental and cost saving benefits. The ability to install certain products without the use of cranes brings significant health and safety benefits.

Layflat Hose Construction
The layflat hoses from Angus Flexible Pipelines are manufactured from high tensile synthetic yarns which are circular woven and then totally encapsulated in a tough elastomeric cover and lining. Different yarns and covers are used for different applications, but what they all have in common is exceptional strength and hydraulic efficiency.

Advantages over conventional rigid polyethylene, PVC, glass fibre or steel pipes

  • Faster Deployment & Retrieval
    Long continuous lengths can be quickly deployed and retrieved using light duty trailers, flaking boxes or power-driven reels. High flexibility and kink resistance allows natural ground contours to be followed without putting stress on the pipeline and eliminates expensive path-cutting work. Fewer joints and faster connections mean reduced labour and equipment costs. A comprehensive range of handling equipment is available.
  • Easier to Store and Transport
    Lighter and more compact for economical storage. A standard pick-up truck may be used instead of a flat-bed truck or fork lift. This reduces transport costs and enables direct routes inaccessible to larger vehicles and cranes to be taken.
  • Low Operating Costs
    Superior hydraulic performance with lower pressure loss for efficient pumping. Swells in use up to 10% beyond uncharged diameter at maximum operating pressure enabling more fluid to be pumped.
  • Longer Service Life
    Capable of operating continuously at high pumping pressures with minimal maintenance in even the harshest environments. Tough and durable with exceptional resistance to abrasion and cutting for use on a wide variety of ground conditions. Unsurpassed resistance to weathering. Suffers no corrosion or scaling. Resistant to heat, fuels, chemical, ultraviolet, ozone, weathering, hydrolysis and microbiological attack.
  • Simpler Maintenance
    Maintenance and repair can be completed in a fraction of the time required for rigid pipe. This means lower labour and equipment costs in addition to reduced downtime.


The range of applications for Angus Flexible Pipelines’ products is almost endless. Wherever rigid or semi-rigid pipe is currently used there is an opportunity to consider a flexible pipeline. Flexible pipelines offer numerous advantages:

  • Flexibility – Hose follows the contours of the ground
  • Easily deployed around obstacles
  • Available in long lengths
  • Ease of transportation
  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Fast deployment and retrieval
  • Superior hydraulics
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Maintenance free
  • Inherent buoyancy


Angus Flexible Pipelines manufacture a wide range of high quality hose for various sectors.  In addition to hose products we also supply tested assemblies for all applications together with handling equipment. Flexible Pipelines is a division of Angus Fire, a global leader in firefighting technology and manufacturer of high performing fire protection products.
