For the sixth time the Innovation Award of the Industrial Association of Schaffhausen (IVS) and the Schaffhauser Platzbanken has been presented. It honored four regional companies for the outstanding innovation work. Representing GF Piping Systems Peter Barth, Product Manager Electrofusion, and  Karl-Heinz Mayer, Project Manager R&D,  took the prize.

The ELGEF Plus branch saddle system topload from GF Piping Systems is another component in the modular ELGEF concept for large pipe applications. The functional design and the synergy between the different elements enable simple, quick and safe installation in trench or above ground. The well-engineered combination of the rotary peeling tool and the clamping attachment represents a significant added value of the installation system. The modular system offers maximum safety and reliability for large dimensions when connecting the outlets to both existing PE piping systems and new installations.
