About Vulcathene 

Under normal laboratory conditions the Vulcathene Mechanical drainage system is more than sufficient. Where a fused joint rather than a mechanical joint is preferred - for example, where pipe is to be buried or run overhead in ceiling voids - the Vulcathene Enfusion (electrofusion) range of chemical waste fittings is recommended.

Injection moulded in black polypropylene Vulcathene Enfusion fitting sockets are moulded with an integral resistance wire in place.   Jointing is completed by energising the resistance wire via a microprocessor controlled Enfusion Control Unit.

Vulcathene Enfusion is compatible with Vulcathene Mechanical offering total versatility to the designer of chemical waste drainage systems.

Safe Chemical Drainage

Vulcathene offers a complete system, ideal for laboratory applications in schools, universities, hospitals and industry.

Vulcathene Mechanical System Overview  The Vulcathene Mechanical system is a complete purpose-designed chemical resistant plumbing system which embraces laboratory bench items such as wastes, sinks and drip cups, anti-siphon traps, expansion joints plus a comprehensive range of pipe fittings from 38mm to 102mm. The Vulcathene Mechanical plumbing system has been designed for the safe conveyance of chemical drainage making it an ideal choice for university, school,hospital and industrial laboratory installations.

  •  Purpose designed and engineered system

  •  Simple, fast jointing method

  •  Demountable joints

  •  Anti-siphon traps

  •  Borosilicate glass base traps

  •  British Board of Agreement approved

  •  Co-polymer based material.

High chemical resistance rating; abrasion resistant; high impact strength; weather resistant; ide temperature capability

  • Unsurpassed record of success in drainage applications

Vulcathene Enfusion System Overview  Under normal laboratory conditions the Vulcathene Mechanical drainage system is more than sufficient. Where a fused joint is preferred - for example, where pipe is to be buried or run overhead in ceiling voids or in drainage stacks - the Vulcathene Enfusion electrofusion range of chemical waste fittings is recommended. Injection moulded in black polypropylene, Vulcathene Enfusion fitting sockets are moulded with an integral resistance wire in place. Jointing is completed by energizing the resistance wire via a microprocessor controlled Enfusion Control Unit.

Vulcathene Enfusion is compatible with Vulcathene Mechanical offering total versatility to the designer of chemical waste drainage systems.

  •  Design flexibility

  •  Easy to install

  •  Multiple jointing

  •  Controlled fusion

  •  Voltage sensing

  •  Fusion time adjustment

  •  Self-diagnostic unit

Enfusion has proven over time that it produces the optimum level of performance where it matters most - at the joint interface. It offers unprecedented control of jointing - controlled fit, controlled temperature and controlled time.                                                                                                                                                  

Standards and Quality  Vulcathene products are manufactured in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001. Products are subjected to a range of checks and tests. Detailed records are kept for dimensional and performance tests for each production batch. Each batch is given a unique identification number, which is reproduced on every fitting giving complete traceability.

Vulcathene pipes and fittings are manufactured within an environmental management system which operates in accordance with
the requirements of ISO 14001. Whilst there is no specific British or CEN Standard for the performance of a chemical waste drainage system, the products manufactured for the Vulcathene system are covered by Agreement Certificates

which ensures their fitness for purpose.                                                                         

British Board of Agreement Specification Clauses Material and Manufacture  Manufactured from co-polymer polypropylene with 3% carbon black ultra violet stabiliser. All fittings injection moulded from virgin grade polypropylene. All pipes to be extruded from virgin grade polypropylene.

Mechanical System All mechanical joints to be demountable compression. All joints incorporate a positive seal utilising a ‘tongued’ olive located in a groove cut into the external wall on the pipe. This combines system security with the ability to disassemble the system if required.

Traps All traps should be of the anti-syphonic type, based on the GREVAC design, which prevents suction developing within the system which could prevent effective drainage of chemicals. The GREVAC type anti-syphon trap, with a Borosilicate glass base must be used with particularly strong chemical solutions and when large amounts of organic solvents are used.

Where the W691 Dilution Recovery Trap is used, the underside of the trap must be supported to prevent undue strain on the pipework system.

Vulcathene Material Properties

Manufactured from co-polymer polypropylene with 3% carbon black ultra-violet stabiliser. Vulcathene has very high resistance to  chemical attack and is well suited to the conveyance of aggressive chemicals, and other liquids as used in chemical plants and   laboratory waste.

The performance specification is based on the need to supply a waste system which has a high chemical resistance rating in respect     of the corrosive materials which it has to convey. Good tensile strength, ductility, abrasion resistance, high impact strength, weather resistance, and is stable over the range of temperatures normally encountered in the environment in which it is used.

Vulcathene is resistant to many concentrated acids and alkalis and some organic solvents. Vulcathene also has a good abrasion resistance throughout its operational temperature range of between -20°C and +100°C.

With a smooth bore, it is lightweight with a specific gravity of 0.905. It has high impact strength, which minimizes damage during and after installation. The full specification to which Vulcathene pipe and fittings are available from our Technical team.
