The science of drainage

A total of 200 m of Vulcathene pipework has been installed to carry chemical waste from sinks in new science laboratories at King’s College School at Wimbledon. Pipework ranging in sizes from 6 mm to 100 mm was used in six laboratories built as an extension to the existing science block. Halsion installed the system and took advantage of the two jointing methods available — mechanical and Enfusion. Nick Taylor, product manager with Halsion, says, ‘For much of the installation, we used the Enfusion jointing process, but directly under the sinks we chose to use the mechanical coupling method. It is essentially “future maintenance” because the demountable joints make it easy for us to change and add to the pipework without damaging the original system.’
