On 17th November Roperhurst despatched the first phase of PVC ductwork for a nuclear facility in the North of England. The ductwork, fabricated to DW154, was rolled using our Ingenia butt fusion machine, and then one-piece machined flanges welded on by our team of EN 13067-certified welders. Reducers, bootshoes, and 90 degree bends were also fabricated by our experienced team. On 17th November Roperhurst despatched the first phase of PVC ductwork for a nuclear facility in the North of England. Roperhurst was chosen for this project because we could demonstrate the level of compliance necessary to deal with the demands of this exacting industry.
In addition to our ISO9001 certification, the project required strict adherence to our ITP (Inspection and Test Plan), and detailed procedures around welding, from preparation through to testing. In addition to every weld being spark tested, all ductwork sections were leakage tested to DW143 before being sealed for despatch. Our client was present to witness every test, and sign off on compliance prior to despatch. Every piece of ductwork was individually coded to provide 100% traceability, from the welders involved to the sheet materials and weld cord used, and the associated certificates of conformity.
