Vulcathene supports research at Cardiff University
New laboratories at Cardiff University are fitted out with Vulcathene pipework for chemical drainage. Sizes from 50 to 102 mm were installed by B&H Plumbing in the new 5-storey research centre on the Maindy Park Campus. The project comprises a cancer research centre, the university’s MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics & Genomics and the Neuroscience & Mental Health Research Institute.
Named the Hadyn Ellis Building after the later deputy vice-chancellor Prof. Hadyn Ellis, the £30 million centre is due to open this year.
Vulcathene is available in sizes from 38 to 152 mm and with two jointing methods — mechanical for demountable joints and Enfusion for welded joints.
