Taher Brothers: All about our products
Welcome to Taher Brothers! We are the number one supplier of high-quality pipes and fitting in Bangladesh. Our partnership firm mostly deals with the distribution of mild steel, galvanized steel, ERW, PVC pipes and seamless tubes.
We always strive for the best quality to satisfy your demands in construction. For this reason, we make sure that we have a wide catalogue of products that is tailor-fit to your needs. Check out our list of products below and find the one that will fit your project:
#1. Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Pipes (ABS)
The ABS type of pipe is resistant to corrosive chemicals that will cause it to rust and age. However, it has a low melting point so it shouldn’t be used in areas with strong heat. This type of pipe works best on draining the sewage and wastewater in households. Most construction companies prefer ABS pipe for Drain Waste Vent systems since it is a solid material that doesn’t bend over time.
#2. Brass Pipes
Brass pipes are one of the most expensive iron pipe materials. It is made of copper and zinc alloy and is widely used for multiple purposes. A few of its common uses in the household are for bearings, plumbing and vents. It is not commonly seen because it is a bit pricey. However, if you do see it, it is mostly displayed out in the open at industrial design houses.
#3. Cast Iron Pipe
Cast iron pipes are the most popular among the types of pipe. It has high corrosion resistance, therefore, it will last longer than any other material. City water distribution systems mostly use this since it is safe for use and doesn’t break down as often as other materials.
The material used for this pipe is what we know of as pig iron. It is an intermediate product of iron industries that uses the purest form of iron. Pipes like this are mostly made in 5cm to 120 cm dimensions. According to our research, a cast-iron pipe can last up to 100 years under normal conditions. So, if you want a long-lasting pipe that can work from generation to generation, we highly recommend cast iron!
Here at Taher Brothers, you can buy pipe sections with a length of 12 feet up to 20 feet. As for the thickness, there are cast iron pipes with varying degrees of thickness depending on where you would use it. Each pipe can stand up to a maximum power of 350 psi so you can be sure that it will not bend over time.
You can use this pipe for pumping stations, filter plants or any other structures where it is necessary to disjoint the pipe. Take note that the flanged couplings need to be fitted perfectly to prevent leaks. Moreover, you need to use a gasket over it to secure where the pipes connect.
Cast iron is among the cheapest pipes considering that it lasts longer than any material. We highly recommend it for use on public structures and commercial buildings.
#4. Chlorinated Poly Vinyl Chloride Pipes (CPVC)
If you are looking for pipes that can be used for both hot and cold materials, CPVC is perfect for you. This non-corrosive pipe can withstand up to 180°F. Additionally, it is durable and easy to use so you won’t have any problem adjusting it to your needs at home or your construction site.
This kind of material is different from PVC even though it contains the same elements. CPVC’s material is altered with a free radical chlorination reaction. For this reason, there is an increased chlorine content in the pipe. Due to the durability of CPVC and its wide range of use, it is a little bit more expensive than other materials such as PVC pipes.
#5. Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride Pipes (uPVC)
The unplasticized polyvinyl chloride pipe is known as the rigid version of PVC pipes and fittings. Due to its rigidity, it is often used in plumbing for residential areas and commercial buildings.
Ideally, uPVC is a material that you can use in looping for each floor level, outdoor installations and concealed pipelines used for cold water distribution. The benefits of using this product are that it is cheap, durable and easy to install. Moreover, it has a strong resistance against chemicals, oxidation from water and exposure to sunlight.
#6. PVC Pipes
PVC is short for polyvinyl chloride. It is a material that most people are familiar with since you can see it a lot in homes for drainage and plumbing systems. The durability and cheap price of this product made it the perfect replacement for metal pipes. It is one of the first plastic pipes to be released.
#7. Copper Pipes
Copper is considered a mild metal, which makes it easier to bend and work with. It is usually joined using union joints and flanged joints to keep it from leaking. This type of pipe is considered to be one of the most expensive pipes because of how scarce its material is. It is mostly made in small diameter and used only to carry hot water or steam since it cannot be affected by the heat nor does it melt easily.
We consider copper pipes as one of the most durable materials and the most aesthetically appealing one too. Most of the industries that use this tend to leave it out in the open for a rustic, industrialized look.
#8. Cross-Linked Polyethylene Pipes (PEX)
Cross-linked polyethylene pipes are tubing mostly seen in insulations right beneath the walls. It can be used in residential radiant heating applications since it is easy to hide.
What makes this material special is that it prevents oxygen and other elements from infiltrating the important mechanical components in the heating system since foreign elements can corrupt the chemicals for heating. Aside from heating systems, it can also be used for transporting water.
#9. Galvanized Steel Pipes
Galvanized steel pipes are a popular material used in houses built in 1960 until now. It replaced the lead pipes for water lines, which is later found to be the cause of many serious injuries to the public. This type of pipe uses zinc as a coating to prevent it from rusting. The only problem is that the zinc wears off eventually so you have to reapply coating after 10 or so years of use.
#10. Galvanized Iron Pipes
Unlike galvanized pipes, galvanized iron pipes are made of mild steel sheets. It usually has a welded seam type lengthwise joint and is mostly used to supply water, gas or any other liquids in the building.
The usual size that we sell these pipes in is from 12 mm to 150 mm in diameter. Meanwhile, the length is around 6 metres. Depending on the diameter of the pipes, the thickness of the pipe wall can differ from each other.
To prevent rusting, we dip it in a zinc solution. The average life of these kinds of pipes is 10 years so you need to update it from time to time or see if there are any signs of rusting that might affect your water supply.
What makes this product popular despite the short average age is that it can be easily joined, threaded, cut and bent, making your task easier. It uses a socket to join the pipes and prevent them from leaking.
Another thing that makes it attractive is its cheap price and light weight. It is perfect for sink pipes and waterworks around the kitchen since that is the most accessible area of your house or building. Take note that if you are using this product, you must prevent using it with acids and alkaline water since it can damage the pipe badly by removing the zinc coating.
#11. Steel Pipes
Steel pipes are materials used to carry gas, water or other liquid components using high pressure. These kinds of pipes are made of steel sheets making them durable. If you’re going to use the smaller pipes, please keep in mind that it has a welded joint that is seamless along the length. For large pipes, we advise that you rivet them or weld the joints too.
Steel pipes are often used for open support since it is lightweight and can be easily joined. Additionally, you can bend it easily so you can shape it to perfectly fit your project. Take note not to use acidic water and alkaline water on this kind of pipe since it can damage the coating very easily.
#12. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Pipes
If you want a pipe that is perfect for all-around work, we got the perfect material for you. Let us introduce you to the high-density polyethylene pipes, which is the most effective material in the market. This pipe lasts long and it doesn’t develop moss, rust or any other foreign element that might pollute your water.
