CORROSION RESISTANT DUCTWORK CASE STUDY

Specialist Plastic Ductwork Contractors

Corrosion of exhaust ductwork can prove to be an expensive issue.

Not only does corrosion lead to loss of extraction efficiencies, with all its subsequent ramifications. Replacement incurs capitol cost, strip out time, effects on the actual building fabric, and considerable down time.

Plastcon offers a broad choice of corrosion resistant fume ductwork systems, plastic ductwork and components.

Materials of construction including, but not limited to

• uPVC
• PP
• PPs
• cPVC
• PP-EL
• PE-EL

All reinforced with GRP if necessary.

Plastic Ductwork can be supplied to the following specifications;

• DW154
• SMACNA
• FM4922
• FM4910

Of course, hybrid specifications can be developed to achieve project specific objectives.

Fume Ductwork cleaning can be accommodated to TR19 standards, and pressure tested to DW144

PE-EL and PP-EL is a high-heat resistant, UV-stabilised, electrically conductive product designed for explosion protection to counteract static.PE, and PE-EL can e be used in the construction of fume ductwork, fans, tanks and vessel construction.

Plastic can be used in potentially explosive atmospheres where sparks might occur as a result of static.

The materials are also available polyester-backed for larger fabrications.

Special properties;

• Electrically conductive
• High resistance to UV rays
• Good impact strength
• Normal flammability
• Good chemical resistance
• Temperature range -20 to +80°C
• Normal flammability
• Suitable for use in potentially explosive atmospheres in accordance with ATEX

Our engineering resource will provide a first class service to help coordinate, design and project manage your ductwork requirements.

To complete the scheme we also offer

• Fans
• Dampers
• Stacks
• Hoods

Design, construction, and Installation

Standard metal ductwork is prone to the major issue of corrosion when in contact with aggressive chemicals or high moisture content, which hampers the performance of the equipment or machinery where it is used. This makes it essential to go for corrosion resistant equipment.

At Plastica Tech, we have built specialist competencies in high quality and durable corrosion resistant ductwork production.

All of our ductwork systems and equipment are sold plastic constructions, unlike lined or coated steel, which not susceptible to corrosion due to scratches or lining failure.

No more costly repairs to fix the issue of corrosion or downtime in operations. With the superior performance of the corrosion resistant equipment and components we manufacture, your specific application will never face any downtime or corrosion-related challenges. Due to its low moisture absorption and long service life, it has emerged to be one of the most cost-effective solutions, especially in corrosive environments.

If you’re a laboratory, process plant, sports facility or treatment plant, needs long-lasting ductwork without the hassles of corrosion impacting its performance then no need to look beyond Plastica Tech’s corrosion resistant ductwork.
