System 2000 vs. electrofusion (EF)
Through a competitive bidding process, the Australian company Hygrade won a project that mainly required products based on PE welding technology. Hygrade conducted a study that demonstrated the benefits of System 2000 – a mechanical connection technique developed by Hawle that is optimized for PE and PVC pipes. The significant time and material cost savings of System 2000 were the two major factors that ultimately won the customer over. Hawle went on to work with the customer on modifications to the project specifications. By reducing the working time and product costs, it was possible to achieve the following savings:
- 15% saving thanks to using System 2000 valves
- 30% saving thanks to using HAKU shut-off saddles
At the end of the project, Hawle was able to deliver AUD 120,000 worth of System 2000 products and AUD 20,000 worth of HAKU shut-off saddles to the happy customer, as well as helping to reduce assembly times and project costs. The customer was delighted with the wealth of benefits offered by Hawle products, such as quality, reliability, longevity and savings in time.
