Durapipe ABS

Durapipe ABS is a lightweight and corrosion-free material that is commonly used for low

temperature fluid transportation. ABS is designed to operate at a wide temperature range

and the system remains ductile even at temperatures as low as -40°C.

ABS pipework is suitable for a multitude of different applications within water treatment.

It is typically used for chilled and process water, cooling water and general water and

sewerage treatment.

Durapipe Air-line Xtra

Durapipe Air-line Xtra is a purpose designed pipework system for the distribution of air, a

lightweight and non-corrodible system with a protective layer on the inside of the pipe,

Durapipe Air-line Xtra is the ideal solution for ensuring that air is kept clean and

uncontaminated until use.

Durapipe PVC-U

PVC-U has become the established material for the pipework requirements of water and

waste treatment applications. PVC-U allows the safe transportation of different fluids and

even some chemical concentrates without fear of corrosion and environmental pollution.

Durapipe PVC-U is fully WRAS approved and the fully matched system of pipe, fittings

and valves is available in both metric and imperial sizes.


C-PVC is ideally suited for the conveyance of hot and cold water, the material is suitable

for transporting corrosive solutions at elevated temperatures up to 95ºC.

C-PVC is lightweight & extremely easy to install making it a cost effective alternative to

either copper or steel.
