We supply factoryfabricated tanks with diameters ranging from 300 millimetres up to 5 metres, with larger diameters being manufactured on site. Generally capable of withstanding temperatures up to 100oC, our products deliver high chemical resistance and control. Processes which operate at above 100oC can often be accommodated with specialist materials.

Products include:
  • Separation & settling tanks
  • Storage & process vessels

Pipe and ducting

Working to national/international standards, we design solutions that utilise the latest plastic fabrication materials and technology, from polyethylene for the transportation of Natural Gas through to fluoropolymerlined steel tanks and pipework for use with high temperature aggressive chemicals in hazardous environments both on and off-shore.

Products include:
  • Chemical process pipework
  • Waste, drainage & process pipe systems & fittings
  • Dual containment & chemical dosing pipe systems & vessels
  • Ducting & fume extraction
