Vulcathene serves labs in new academy

Vulcathene chemical drainage pipework serves the laboratories in this academy in Cheshire

Vulcathene chemical drainage has been installed in the science block of a £20 million educational academy in Cheshire. The science block has 11 laboratories for the 1700 pupils that the school can accommodate. As well as classrooms, the school also has a 350-seat theatre, learning resource centre, art studios and technology workshops.

Proline Mechanical Engineers include Vulcathene mechanical pipework in sizes up to 102 mm. Over a hundred Vulcathene anti-siphon traps were installed to prevent backflow of potentially hazardous fumes.

Commenting on the project, Fraser Lunt of Proline said, ‘There was a large volume of chemical drainage pipework needed for this project and so it was imperative we installed an effective system that we knew would provide exceptional performance for the client. Vulcathene is the market leading product and has a proven track record for chemical drainage applications so was the only option considered for the job.’
