Thermoplastics are the safe solution for containment and transportation of dangerous chemical and biological fumes and liquids.
Roperhurst are specialists in the fabrication and installation of all types of ductwork, whether circular or rectangular, from a range of materials including PVC, GRP, PVC/GRP, PPs, polypropylene/GRP, HDPE and PVDF. We also carry significant stock and are happy to work on a supply-only basis.
Depending on the type of material and its application, we fabricate and install using solvent welding, hot air welding and butt fusion techniques in compliance with BESA DW154.
We work with our customers to provide an appropriate material to the application based on mechanical features and chemical compatibility, sized to satisfy desired flow rates across the system.
Plastic ductwork is specified for fume extraction projects in industrial sites such as chemical plants, steelworks or nuclear facilities, as well as educational premises, waste water treatment works and swimming pools.
Using specialist tank design software, we can ensure that your tank requirements take account of location, weather (if outside), temperature, chemical media and number of cycles, alongside AutoCAD drawings for a smooth process through specification, design, fabrication and installation.
Roperhurst is experienced in all thermoplastics, including polypropylene and PPs, polyethylene, PVC, PVDF and E-CTFE. Our laminators can reinforced most materials with glass and a range of resins/gel coats.
We have built tanks to the comprehensive requirements of BS4994 Category 1, and have certified laminators and welders who can bring more than 100 years of experience to bear. Expertise developed over nearly 50 years allows us to provide a turnkey solution, managing civils, cranage, trace heating, lagging and all aspects of pipework.
There are many circumstances where fume cannot be vented to air.
Where this arises, Roperhurst can advise on the design, fabrication, installation and commissioning of scrubbing solutions to meet the process needs. Scrubbers need to be designed to take account of the type and concentration of chemical being produced – our scrubbers are currently in use many sites around the UK as well as Taiwan and mainland China.
Whether PVC, PVC/GRP, polypropylene or PVDF, we will work with you to ensure that the scrubber is made from the most chemically resistant material, is of sufficient volume and takes account of any constraints in your working environment.
As an approved supplier and installer of the Core6 range of GRP products, Roperhurst supplies and installs a comprehensive range of composite solutions, including GRP grid, GRP handrail systems, GRP stairs and GRP ladders from its premises in Barry, South Wales.
