Fusion were pleased to supply piping system products for the construction of a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in remote Australia.
The Wastewater Treatment System
The piping system chosen for this project was Schedule 80 PVC-U as it’s recognised around the world as a superior, reliable piping solution. The chemical resistivity required for this project rules out ABS plastic and installation times for PE would have outweighed potential savings on material.
Fusion offers an extensive range of fittings and accessories, allowing the client to continuity—throughout the plant’s long lifetime—offset the risk of using incorrect solvents and glues.
The remote location of this waste water treatment plant leaves no room for pipework failure as it’s critical for the maintenance of up to 2,500 site construction beds. UPVC has excellent solvent weld strength and reliability: for that reason, it’s used internally, externally and below ground throughout the entire plant.

The Permeate Pump Skid
The pumps draw permeate from membranes and pumps them to a treated effluent storage tank. Chlorine and turbidity are both monitored and three way valves will send any non-compliant effluent back to the process.
A Word of Thanks
Fusion was proud to supply UPVC piping system products and accessories and we’d like to thank the client for the supply opportunity.
