Dual containment piping provides a safety barrier between dangerous fluids and the natural environment.
In the plastic industry, dual containment piping (also known as double containment piping) is used to securely convey corrosive fluids.
In the event that a containment layer is breached (ie. The inner pipe breaks), a second layer (the outer pipe) stops aggressive fluids from leaking out and into the environment.
Using dual containment piping creates other advantages. The space between the piping can be used to detect leakages and alert parties responsible for cleanup and maintenance. Visual or electronic leak detection units can be installed via a termination fitting. This space can also be used to contain a cooling agent to help stabilise the temperature of the inner pipe.
Dual containment pipe can be installed to a new piping system or retro-fitted to an existing (including steel piping). The enormous safety benefit means you can worry less and feel good about doing that extra bit to safeguard against leakages and harming the environment.
The applications for this technology are extensive and include: The mining industry, water crossings, effluent treatment plants, hazardous to water effluent plants in water protection areas, battery manufacturing, the chemical industry, power plants, metal working / finishing, paper / cellulose and life science.
