criteria so that they can find ways to improve, which is an important thing,” Horn added. “It’s a com- mitment that the industry has to improving on those lines.” And that leads into another area


where the ductile iron pipe industry prides itself. Since it’s made from recycled iron and steel products, it doesn’t have a costly environmental footprint. Life expectancy is extremely long, and that means less construction and less environmental disruption. “Unlike cheaper pipe materials


such as PVC, ductile iron pipe is 100% recyclable,” Otterstedt said. “If a utility digs up a ductile iron pipe and returns it to the (metalcaster), or any scrap dealer, it can be made into new pipe. You can’t do that with PVC. Ductile iron pipe is simply the smart, strong, sustainable choice.” It’s also efficient and saves money. A lesser-known fact is pipe materi-

als and pieces have the same outside diameters so they can fit together. Te standards are uniform, so they can mate with fittings and with other types of pipe, with valves and with various types of equipment. Having


the same outside diameter and having different wall thicknesses (because plastic pipe is not as strong as iron pipe) means the inside diameter of iron pipe is bigger than the inside diameter of the same nominally sized
