Durapipe ABS pipework has been specified within a leading food manufacturing facility, as part of a re-development to increase efficiency and productivity at the plant in Selby, Yorkshire.
Leading food manufacturing company, Brecks Food, supplies extruded cereal and meat-free products to industry and retail and was undergoing an update to its manufacturing site to increase the water supply to the factory.
The manufacturing process uses 50 tonne of water per day and the existing supply to the factory wasn’t adequate at peak times. As a result, J Craig Dykes Property Developments Ltd was tasked with introducing a system that would significantly increase the water supply.
J Craig Dykes installed two new water tanks, each with a capacity of 18 tonnes, and required a reliable pipework system that could distribute the water to each of the four manufacturing stations. Durapipe ABS pipework was specified in sizes up to 2” to carry chilled water from the new tanks to the four manufacturing processes, as each process needs its own individual water supply.
J Craig Dykes was looking for a pipework system that would look aesthetically pleasing, as the pipework is visible in the factory, and that would also be easy to work with. Durapipe ABS was recommended by Pipe Center, a division of Wolseley, as it met the requirements demanded by Brecks Food in terms of performance characteristics and its ease of installation properties.
Commenting on the project, Craig Dykes, managing director at J Craig Dykes Property Developments said: “We have been delighted with Durapipe UK from the initial enquiry right through to the project completion. We have not used the product previously and were very impressed with how easy it was to work with and the technical support that we received from everyone at Durapipe throughout the project was exceptional.”
Durapipe ABS offers installers and end users a variety of benefits; its corrosion free properties and wide temperature capabilities make it the ideal system to carry a variety of low temperature fluids. The lightweight material and ease of jointing of Durapipe ABS also makes it a quick and easy solution to install, offering significant installation cost savings.
