Plastics have been delivering safe drinking water for more than seven decades. Advantages of Plastics in Water Treatment Systems include:
Lightweight, Impact, weather, chemical, corrosion and fire resistant, Easy to fabricate, Cost effective, Durable and long-lasting, Excellent weatherability, Easy and safe to use,Low maintenance, Easy to weld, install and operate, Excellent flexibility and bending radius, which eliminates the need for fittings, Surge-resistant, Provides superior protection for public health when used in water treatment applications, Unlike metals, fabrication of plastics can often be done on-site, with simple hand tools; no torches or heavy equipment needed.
Applications for Plastics in Water Treatment Systems:
Potable water systems - Irrigation - Aquaculture - Food processing - Industrial process piping - Fire sprinkler systems - Hot and cold water distribution systems - Plumbing pipes and fittings - Water and sewage treatment - paddles, weirs, wear shoes, sprockets, chain guides -Gravity and force main industrial and municipal
sewer systems - Ultra pure water systems - Submerged marine installations- Ocean thermal energy conversion projects, designed to produce energy and air condition buildings - Fire protection systems on and under municipal piers
