Tank Accessories

Tank Components Tanks play a vital role in the water treatment process through storage, transport and distribution of media. Therefore, it is important that the tank itself is up to specification, but the ancillary products are delivering optimal levels of performance.   Whilst we do not sell tanks, we can offer a wide range of premium […]

Threaded Adaptors

A tapered thread becomes smaller in diameter the further you travel down the part, whereas a parallel thread maintains a consistent diameter all the way down the part.

When connecting plastic threads to create a pressure-tight seal via wedging, a tapered male into a parallel female or a parallel male into a parallel female is required (shown in diagram).

Pipe Clips – Loose vs fixed

Plastic pipe should be installed using supports designed for use with plastics and should then be installed taking care not to damage or overstress the pipe.

There are two commonly used supports: Fixed and Loose.

Firstly, lets look at pipe movement inside the brackets (depicted in the image below), followed by the design implications this has for plastic expansion.

Installation Tip: Smart Brush Selection To Reduce Solvent Evaporation

An Overview of Injection Valves: Quills vs Lances

Why Should You Use Injection Valves For Chemical Feed Systems  Injection valves are designed to ensure a chemical feed system injects directly into the centre of the process stream; ensuring efficient mixing and preventing corrosion along the inside of the process pipe. Alternative methods such as a threaded tap, place unnecessary strain on the pipework […]
