Installation for plastics pipelines for effluent conveyance [PE, PP]


Additional Applications

Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1972 Southampton


Plastics materials are now being extensively used to provide pipelines for effluent conveyance, both by industry and by numerous Public Authorities. Intensive efforts to control pollution have led to stringent examination of conventional drainage methods and materials, and has highlighted the need for continuous systems, impervious to,attack , thereby offering long service life with minimal maintenance.

Any drainage system is only as sound as the jointing, and conventional glazed earthenware systems invariably fail at the joints despite the resistance of the pipework itself.
Since such systems employ very short module lengths, the potential leakage points are very numerous and can lead to repetitive leakage as the jointing materials progressively deteriorate.

Plastics drainage systems have now been sufficiently developed, based upon long modular lengths, thereby minimising the potential sources of leakage, and jointing techniques have been perfected, offering consistent joint strength approaching that of the pipe itself.

These physical factors, combined with the inherent chemical resistance of the materials used, have enabled such pipework to gain increased popularity in the field of effluent conveyance.
