Welcome to Reinforced Concrete Pipes Australia

Reinforced Concrete Pipes Australia is a wholly Australian owned concrete pipe company originating from the merger of Reinforced Concrete Pipes (RCP) and Australasian Pipeline and Pre-Cast (APP).

Reinforced Concrete Pipes Australia is the only national supplier of Steel Reinforced Concrete Pipe that is wholly Australian owned and we are enormously proud of that fact. RCPA is committed to the use of high tech machinery in all its operations and is a leader in cutting edge technology and innovation. Modern technology is used to produce concrete pipes to a new and higher standard, ensuring accuracy and durable characteristics.

The technology implemented by RCPA is having a significant impact on pipe production in Australia – choosing plant that not only incorporates many production efficiencies, but also minimising environmental impact and usage of power.

Advanced production technology

Advanced production technology

Creating efficiencies while reducing environmental impact..

The technology implemented by RCPA is having a significant impact on pipe production in Australia -. choosing plant that not only incorporates many production efficiencies but also minimising environmental impact and usage of power.

Concrete pipes have been an integral part of most civil contracts since the late 1800’s, and production of these pipes has progressed from early hand tamped concrete, through spinning techniques to the latest vertically cast, Bi-directional machines as installed by RCPA. This technology is multiple times faster than traditional methods, and offers the customer a more cost effective product which can be virtually “made to order” read more..

Production

Production

Concrete is produced to AS1379-2007. Concrete production is fully automated, utilising graphical presentations, auto alarm systems and fully traceable production records to ensure a quality product. Programmes used are capable of handling up to 100 recipe mixes.

Process

The technology implemented by RCPA not only incorporates many production efficiencies but also minimises environmental impact and usage of power.

Our process steps include:

  • REO Cage
  • Charge Mould
  • Rotate Mould
  • Auto Concrete Freed
  • Instant Stripping
  • Compliance Testing
  • Stockpiling
