Tube-Mac® Piping Technologies in Panama


The expansion of the Panama Canal involves the construction of a third set of gates that will allow for the passage of Post-Panamax vessels, which will double the Canal’s capacity. The new locks will have a total of 16 rolling gates (eight for each new lock complex), unlike the current canal which uses miter gates. Tube-Mac® supplied 1000's for flare flange and PYPLOK® fittings for the new Panama Canal locks under contract with Bosch Rexroth Germany. 72,000 feet (22,000 meters) of stainless steel hydraulic piping was installed for Culvert and Equalization Valves.
