One of the most crucial benefits of a valve pit is increased safety. Servicing a pump station ordinarily involves some risk as one has to reach inside the pit to turn off the valves. A valve pit eliminates the need to reach into an open pit.
All stations have been individually engineered to handle the toughest environmental situations.
Proven in the toughest environments including installations in volcanic soils and high water tables.
Minimum ground opening time reduces labour costs and reduces OH&S issues on site.
The stations have no joins. Being built in one piece, they have a seamless, smooth, clean internal surface that resists scum and sludge build up and allows no leakage to the external environment.
The design, construction and appropriateness of design methodology of all FRP structures is verified and within the bounds of AS2634:1983, BS4994 and ASME RTP-1 (for details of the verification process please refer to Verification Procedure). The general construction of the station is as follows:
All material mechanical properties are in accordance with international standard BS4994 and are suitable for the intended design and anticipated service conditions.
All structures are Designed, Engineered and Verified as per our procedure set out in our Pump Stations Brochure.
Due to the high strength-to-weight ratio of an FRP pump station, the process of loading, transport and unloading is simple.
There are no weight issues with FRP as there are with pump stations manufactured out of other materials. Special equipment such as low loaders and overweight floats are unnecessary. Only standard transport/ lifting equipment is required.
A prominent feature of fibreglass reinforced pump stations is the speed and ease of installation.
Our FRP pump stations can be installed easily. With a two man crew and an excavator, a pump station can be installed in a day!
