Conference on developments in desalination technology
An extraordinary project regarding a double containment piping system was realised in Belgium close to Brussels. This project was executed in cooperation with Vink Belgium for the company JANSSEN PHARMACEUTICAL.
The PP double containment system is a waste pipe for pharmaceutical waste water (mainly organic solvents). In the past a pipeline rupture led to partial contamination of the area. Therefore the decision was taken to renew the waste water system with a double containment piping system. PP was selected because of the high temperature of 80 °C of the media.
The duration of the project using double containment piping was 2,5 years. During the year-long planning phase the chemical resistance had to be checked and the static calculations of the pipeline had to be worked out (underground pipeline with an installation depth of 1.5 meters). Construction started in spring 2010.
A few hundred meters of pipes were produced for this project. The diameters ranged from 200/110 mm (PP-H) to 1000/800 mm (PP-R). In addition, the three larger pipes required special machined anchors to prevent damage during transportation and handling on site.
