Fusion's workshop teams are custom plastic fabrication experts. Whether you require large (or small) chemical storage tanks, bunds, dosing panels, pipe spools, chutes / launders, electrowinning cells, machine / motor guards, ballasts / floats, safety screens or something unique, our workshop team can provide plastic fabrication services to assist.
We provide custom plastic fabrication services for clients who experience frequent maintenance problems caused by aggressive chemical corrosion and are seeking an alternative to steel. Plastic products (PE / poly, PP, UPVC, CPVC, PVDF and more) not only have the benefit of being corrosion resistant, but they're light in weight making installation quicker and easier.
Our core custom plastic fabrication services include sheet butt welding, extrusion welding, piping systems welding (including butt, socket, IR and glue jointing) and CNC cutting.
Our Australian workshop plastic fabrication teams in WA and QLD construct long term, chemical storage and conveyance solutions for clients in sectors including water treatment, chemical processing, food / beverage, pharmaceutical, mining and oil and gas industries.
We're known Australia wide for our plastic fabrication services and our plastic fabricated chemical storage tanks. Our workshops manufacture tanks using European sheet plastic in a range of materials chosen, depending on the application, to ensure the optimal tank longevity. Most commonly HDPE or PP is selected; however, UPVC, PVDF and more are available if required.
To manufacture a Fusion plastic fabricated tank, we utilise large, German sheet butt welding machines to form the walls, and extrusion welding techniques to join the base and the roof sheets. Plastic fabrication using these methods allows for a consistent wall thickness entirely around the tank—something which is very difficult to achieve in roto moulded tanks and ensures consistent strength across the entire tank and lessens the risk of leaks over time.
Before all tanks are dispatched, Fusion undertakes hydro testing to ensure all tanks are manufactured to be completely sealed and leak free. Our tanks can also be designed with rated lifting lugs, anchor claws and vents for easy, safe transport.
Second to our tanks, we're known throughout Australia for our chemical dosing panels and dosing panel upgrade works. Chemical dosing panels often house critical, corrosive / aggressive chemicals. For over 20 years we've honed our dosing panel design to manufacture the best-in-industry cabinets with a focus on safety for people and the environment, while enabling easy access to piping systems and instrumentation.
A typical custom chemical dosing panel at Fusion will either be designed in-house by our engineers or using client supplied drawings. Our plastic fabricators will then utilise CNC cutting machines and extrusion welding to build the cabinetry.
As with our tanks, we manufacture using virgin plastic sheet in HDPE or PP as primary plastic materials for our dosing panels, however a wide range of plastic materials can be utilised, if required.
Does your site require upgrades to conform to new chemical barrier protection standards (ie. Water Corp DS79-03) and increase plant safety? These changes require existing dosing cabinets which either have no doors, ageing plastic curtains or removable rigid screens be replaced or enclosed with clear sliding or hinged doors and all pressurised piping to be completely covered / contained. Fusion has completed upgrade works at several sites throughout Western Australia and can provide assistance from design to installation.
Pipe spools are required to convey media between and within processes at industrial plants. Fusion's plastic fabrication and site teams have experience manufacturing pipe spools, many of which can be found at water treatment plants, chemical processing plants, mine sites and oil and gas facilities throughout Australia.
Pipe spools are commonly manufactured using HDPE or PP plastics and use a combination of backing rings, flanges and gaskets to connect to pre-existing piping systems, storage tanks and more. Fusion has a large range of pipe butt fusion machines to suit the fabrication of spools in sizes up to 630mm and higher.
Do you need assistance with designing a plastic spool to suit your site requirements? From design, fabrication to installation—our Australian design, estimation and site services teams can manufacture custom solutions suited to your application.
Many industrial processes can benefit from custom plastic chutes, liners, launders and machine / motor guards to make a safer working environment and protect important machinery. Fusion has an extensive manufacturing history fabricating these items for clients in a range of industries.
The smooth surface qualities and anti-corrosion characteristics of plastic makes it ideal for chutes, lines and launders, allowing material to easily pass through and not corrode infrastructure. Furthermore, Fusion's manufactured plastic products are light in weight (compared to steel) and therefore easier to install and maintain.
Custom fabricated Industrial sheet plastic is perfect for machine / motor guards. They're light in weight, making them much easier to remove than steel counterparts and can be manufactured in a range of colours and materials to suit safety requirements and site conditions.
Fusion's Australian custom plastic fabrication team has extensive experience manufacturing a wide range of chutes, liners, launders, machine guards and safety screens. Do you need design assistance for something specific at your site? Our engineers and estimators can assist you with design services and our plastic fabrication / site team can manufacture and complete the installation.
