Our team of engineers and plastic fabricators includes specialists delivering a range of safety-critical solutions:
Hazardous fumes and gasses are created through a wide range of industrial, scientific and educational processes. Safe and effective capture and containment varies according to the process being carried out and the fumes those processes create.
Whether it’s fume cupboards, cleanroom wet benches, process line lip extracts or other types of capture hood, Roperhurst will work with you to meet your needs.
The standard for plastic ductwork fabrication and installation in the UK is DW154, published by BESA. As one of the few plastic ductwork companies to be a member of BESA, Roperhurst played an integral role in the original drafting of this standard, and is doing so again in 2021 for the review of the standard.
To the uninitiated it’s just plastic, but plastic ductwork is used for the transportation of chemical, biological or radiological fumes. Plastic ductwork is a safety-critical product. Exposure to these fumes can be very dangerous, even fatal, and in such high risk circumstances can you afford to take chances on your contractor?
Roperhurst’s safety-critical plastic ductwork and stacks, fabricated using PVC, polypropylene/PPs, polyethylene and PVDF (all available with GRP reinforcement as necessary) follows the standards for both fabrication and installation.
Our teams of specialist installers ensure that standards are maintained from fabrication through to installation, making Roperhurst a UK market leader in safety-critical plastic ductwork.
Fume abatement and scrubbing takes many forms depending on application:
Roperhurst offers design and fabrication of complete fume scrubbing solutions, which includes the glass reinforced scrubber unit, the associated ductwork with volume control dampers and the carbon or HEPA filters; bespoke units to suit each customer’s requirements.
With this range of skills, we can implement any plastic solution that the market demands:
