Vianini Pipe, Inc. was
established in 1968 on a 67 acre site in Readington Township,
New Jersey. Our principal manufacturing facility
at this location produces
primarily Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP), Box
Culvert and Jacking or Microtunneling Pipe. Our plant
has all-weather production capabilities with over 110,000
square feet of indoor manufacturing area. While the company's
typical market area is the northeast, Vianini pipe has supplied
pipe throughout the eastern United States including to Florida
by rail and to Puerto Rico by ocean going barges.
When first constructed, the plant was designed to manufacture
only RCP. The RCP produced by Vianini Pipe is generally
used for non-pressure applications, such as culverts and
gravity storm water and sanitary sewer lines. The round
pipe is manufactured in accordance with ASTM C76 in diameters
ranging from 12" through 78". Several joint configurations
are available including slip joint (tongue and groove).
"O" ring rubber gasketed joints and rubber and
steel joints. The latter utilizes steel joint rings, embedded
in each end of the pipe, with one end, the spigot, having
a preformed groove to contain an "O" ring rubber
gasket. This pipe is typically used for applications requiring
low infiltration or exfiltration.
Also manufactured at the RCP facility is elliptical reinforced
concrete pipe. Produced in sizes that have flow characteristic
equivalent to round diameters of 18" through 78",
elliptical RCP is used for the same applications as the
round pipe, but in areas that require shallow trenches or
little clearance with other utilities. Elliptical RCP conforms
to ASTM C507.
Typically, the RCP plant produces 100,000 tons of pipe per
year for projects throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Another important market that has been pioneered by Vianini
Pipe's Inc. is "Microtunneling" Pipe. The process
of microtunneling is to "jack" the pipe through
the earth from a sending pit to a receiving pit with the
use of heavy jacks and tunneling machinery. Vianini pipe
has provided microtunneling pipe for projects that have
been jacked under active taxiways of major metropolitan
airports. The companies longest single jack has been in
excess of 1500 feet. The microtunneling process is becoming
more common due to the fact that the social costs are smaller
and site disruption are less than the traditional "open cut" method.
The company also manufactures box culverts for use in major
drainage projects throughout the northeast. It has made
box culverts with spans as little as 2 1/2 feet and as large
as 15 1/2 feet.
At Vianini Pipe, the products are quality certified. Various
engineering standards require the most rigorous and extensive
quality assurance and in-process inspection of concrete
pipe products. Our experienced inspectors, supported by
our on-site laboratory, have always assured compliance.
