Lorowerk design and manufacture lightweight discharge pipework for shipbuilding and offshore constructions. The LORO piping system includes LORO-X steel discharge pipes, LORO-XC stainless steel pipes and LORO-XD steel pressure pipes for all shipbuilding constructions.
Lorowerk pipework has been extensively specified for both gravity and vacuum sanitary systems on cruise vessels, ferries, container ships, tankers, gas carriers, naval vessels and offshore installations. LORO pipes are used and trusted by most of the world leading cruise line companies.
Pipe work ranges from DN40 - DN200 and are made from either hot-dipped galvanised steel with internal coating, stainless steel or Cunife. Pipe sections are assembled by locating convenient lengths of pipe, various fittings and deck penetrations via a purpose made push-fit socket connection with rubber sealing elements.
In comparing Lorowerk pipe work with conventional systems such as steel pipes, PEH or PVC, the LORO pipe system offers numerous advantages and end savings in weight, stability, temperatures and installation time.
LORO pipes are incombustible and come with a complete, ready to install selection of pre-formed pipe lengths, branches, adaptors, bulkhead penetrations and scuppers.
The pipes and fittings can be used above freeboard deck and below in enclosed spaces and machinery overboard discharge lines. Special deck and bulkhead penetrations are available for connections through Fire Rated Areas and are certified in accordance with Fire Test Requirements for "A" and "B" Class Divisions as defined under IMO Resolution A.754(18).
Lorowerk drainage pipe work is approved by the Leading International Classification Societies such as Germanischer Lloyd, Lloyd's Register of Shipping, the American Bureau of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas, Registro Italiano Navale, Bureau Veritas, Seeberufsgenossenschaft and the China Classification Society.
