Quality / Specification

PIPECO GROUP manufacture and design of the hot press moulded GRP panel sectional water storage tanks to the quality requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2000 and complied with Singapore Standard SS245:1995 Glass Reinforced Polyester Sectional Water Tanks crossed reference to British Standard BS7491:Part3:1994 Glass fibre Reinforced Plastic Cisterns for Cold Water Storage.

PIPECO GRP PANELS have passed full tests of effect on water quality – BS 6290 and are listed by WRAS (Water Regulation Advisory Scheme) Approved Material.

PIPECO GROUP manufactured by the Hot Press Moulded Method have the glass reinforced plastic moulded at temperatures up to 150 ͦ C using isophthic unsaturated polyester resins, UV stabilized and ‘E’ glass fibre reinforcement, color RALS 1013.

PIPECO PANEL having smooth gloss surface restricts the growth of algae, corrosion resistance and do not pollute water is suitable for storage of potable cold water at atmospheric pressure and 50 ͦC

PIPECO INSULATION of 40 mm thick polyurethane foam 40 Kg/m3 insulating material cover with GRP skin which is resistance to ultra violet radiation, weather protective and water tight.

Excellent insulation of GRP Material itself with Eco-friendly Polyurethane heat insulating material prevents freeze & water condensation.

There is non-woven fabric with excellent adhesion inside GRP insulated panel, ensuring shape stability of panel throughout longer time periods.

GRP insulated panel with 4 layers structure ensures excellent insulating effect.

Thickness of insulated panel: 40 – 50mm.

PIPECO PANELS are supported either by the stainless steel tie rod internally or galvanized box sections externally. All metallic components in contact with water and the bolts/nuts/washers used in assembly above the water line shall be stainless steel grade 316/A4.

PIPECO PANELS are joined full width of the panel flange using non-toxic, flexible and resistance to ultra violet PVC foam sealant.

PIPECO TANKS deeper than 1.5m shall be fitted with internal GRP ladders, external galvanized steel ladders and level indicators.

PIPECO TANKS are equipped with Air Vents and Man Hole Access.

PIPECO TANKS can be installed on either flat continuous foundation of close center (1m c/c) beams conforming to PIPECO’s specification of flatness and deflection.

PIPECO TANKS have Ten (10) years warranty against manufacturing defects.

 

Why You Should Select PIPECO GRP Sectional Water Tank?

  • Exceptionally clean water storage, with WRAS approval.
  • Smooth surface finish on both sides of panel to prevent algae and bacterial growth on panels.
