PVDF tanks for ultra high purity water - used in the field of covid research
The company AQUATERA (located in Vilnius) is specialized in the fields of industrial plants, plastic pipelines (including technical insulation), drainage pipelines, water supply, wastewater treatment and the needed technical equipment for these applications. At the beginning of this year the company has realized a very actual project in the pharmaceutical industry.
Project Date: January 2021 Design/manufacturer: Company AQUATERA Material: Semi-finished products in PVDF natural Medium: Ultra High Purity water Pressure: Atmospheric Temperature: Ambient Dimension: 1240/2320 mm (diameter/height) Field of application: Pharmaceutical industry (in the Baltic States)
About the project
The storage tanks were constructed by using AGRU’s extruded PVDF sheets, welding rod and small diameter PVDF pipes and fittings. Static dimensioning and manufacturing of the tanks according to the DVS guidelines 2203-2207 were done by the company AQUATERA. The tanks were built with a special spherical top and bottom design. All welding seams are ultra-smooth ones (in special for UHPW applications).
Bottom and top: AGRU PVDF sheets with a thickness of 8mm, Cylinder: AGRU PVDF sheets with a thickness of 6mm Volume of the tank: 2.0 m3
Advantages of AGRU’s semi-finished products in PVDF for this application
Semi-finished products in PVDF are produced out of highest grade raw materials, which are very pure
PVDF resins for such products of AGRU are very clean polymers and unlike many other plastics, they do not re-quire the use of stabilizers, plasticizers, lubricants or flame-retardant additives (thanks to the chemical inertness of the PVDF polymer chains)
AGRU Austria has the know how in processing such raw materials to end products, which also meet the re-quirements on highest purity
PVDF sheets in natural colour are excellent products for the storage of ultra-pure water and other chemically pure fluids used in the semi-conductor-and pharmaceutical industry
