Fuel Storage Solutions (FSS) and Geberit have worked together to create a bespoke version of Mapress pipe. It is a bunded pressing solution for a data centre in London which required new bulk tanks, polishing systems and pipework, fully linking with the existing single-skin welded steel pipe systems.

Historically, FSS has used compression, single-skin stainless-steel pipe on similar jobs, but this particular application needed a bunded version. FSS worked with Geberit to develop a suitable pipe, with a 10-year warranty. FSS says it is the only company in the world that can offer a bunded press-fit pipe of this type and the only company approved by Geberit to fit it.

Jonathan Barnett, managing director for FSS, said, ‘In our opinion, Geberit Mapress is vastly superior to welded or threaded steel, presenting a better and cheaper alternative. Now, combined with bunding, we have developed with Geberit a unique product that specifically meets the challenges of our sector.

As Mapress does not involve hot works, installation could be completed without the need to empty tanks and put in temporary storage facilities.

He added, ‘Following the success of this project, FSS has been asked to look at using this new piping solution for water, coolants, gases and waste products in sensitive areas where leaking is not an option.’
