The Poly-Flo® system is a unique product. Manufactured in a patented process, it used rigid pipes that are extruded as a twin-wall product together with twin-wall fittings that are injection moulded as a single item.
The first benefit from this process is the minimisation of the space required for the containment pipe. Unlike all other rigid systems - that require the size of the containment to be large enough to pass through the carrier pipe and fittings - the unitary construction allows for a significant overall reduction in size.
Poly-Flo® is also extremely easy to cut and weld, making installation relatively inexpensive. The carrier pipe and the containment pipe are butt-fusion welded in a single, simultaneous process that gives reliable joints between pipes and fittings.
The Poly-Flo® range also includes a number of fittings that are not available in other double containment systems - most notably flanges to enable systems to be prefabricated or to be disassembled.
Manufactured from black Polypropylene and black PE100-RC, this system is ideal for applications such as laboratory waste systems or pressurised transfer lines. Typical installations are in waste treatment, carrying sulphuric acid or caustic soda, for bulk storage chemicals such as sodium hydroxide and aluminium nitrate; and in semi-conductor plants, handling sulphuric, nitric, and hydrofluoric acids for wet stations. The black Polypropylene and Polyethylene materials also offer a high level of resistance to UV when installed outdoors.
Poly-Flo® is available in carrier pipe sizes 32mm, 63mm and 110mm. The assembled system has a fully pressure rated carrier pipe and containment pipe, suitable for use at working pressures of up to 6 bar.
