BlueScope Water

The AgriRib® irrigation pipe is an innovative buried pipeline system developed by BlueScope Water emerging technology group. AgriRib® pipe is a closed pipeline system designed to replace inefficient open irrigation channels and build new, easily managed water supply infrastructure.

Lu Papi & Associates supported BlueScope Water by developing a revolutionary system for connecting the AgriRib pipes on site using male and female polymer connectors moulded onto the ends of the pipes. The flexibility of this system dramatically reduces installation costs.

Lu Papi & Associates designed the connectors, the inner gasket, the tooling and the process. A number of pilot lines have been installed in a major irrigation area.
