The Vulcathene chemical drainage system from Durapipe has been selected for a major development at the UK headquarters of Apatech.
The project sees Apatech expanding its facilities in Elstree, Hertfordshire.
The company is undergoing a complete overhaul of two buildings it has acquired to make way for 32,000ft2 of office, manufacturing and development activities.
Installed by Allied Mechanical Services of Newmarket, the Vulcathene chemical drainage system has been fitted within the laboratories on the ground floor and at high level in the mezzanine plant room of the new building.
The laboratories will be used for research into new technologies and due to the nature of the substances used in these processes, it was crucial to have a system that could safely dispose of the waste chemicals.
The Vulcathene system was selected due to previous experiences of the product.
Available in sizes from 38mm to 152mm, Vulcathene is a purpose designed chemical drainage system available in two easy jointing methods: mechanical for demountable joints and enfusion for welded joints.
