for Water Treatment
Plastic pipework solutions...
high performance for life
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
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.
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.

clean water processes. ABS pipework ensures that the water
remains completely pure due to the lack of plasticizers or
other contaminants in the system. Additionally, Durapipe
ABS is extremely ductile even at low temperatures and
operates with a 10-bar pressure rating.
Our range of products are ideally suited to the
treatment of water. For example PVC-U & PVC-C
along with our specialist flow control packages
can be used to their full potential for Flocculation,
Ion exchange, Water softening, Chlorine/fluorine
dosing, Ph adjustment, Sulphate/nitrate removal
plus other chemical treatment processes.
Our highly engineered products are
widely used within aeration
facilities across the world,
including Durapipe Air-line Xtra,
which is our specialist system for
air distribution and for use with
certain compressor oils.
