Thermoplastic and fibreglass products are a highly cost effective answer
when compared to steel rubber-lined and stainless steel products.
They are much lighter and therefore easier to install. They are also
maintenance free and provide an extended service life under the most strenuous
All our welding is completed to SABS welding procedures by suitably qualified personnel.
The capacities in which we deal are 20 mm to 630 mm - outside diameter.
Fabrication of piping spools and assemblies are also handled by us, as is our full structural steel support system and civil works support system if required.
The manufacturing method employed for piping manufacture is a semi-automatic
helical tape-wrapping system. Schematic can fabricate equipment with
an internal diameter of 20 mm to 900 mm.
The major applications are for the chemical industry and water treatment plants. The main resins used are Vynlester and Bisphonolic. Both these resins offer a high degree of chemical resistance under the most arduous conditions.
Thermoplastic piping overwrapped with fibreglass greatly improves the pressure rating and offers superior external protection e.g. Chlorine and acid plants.
TANKS AND PRESSURE VESSELS
Tanks with a capacity of up to 5m in diameter can be fabricated with
or without thermoplastic lining. These are used mainly in the mining
and chemical industry.
Other applications include water treatment plants, breweries, fertiliser factories and the automotive industry. These tanks are highly suited to the storage of aggressive chemicals in liquid form such as acids.
The largest fabricated tank to date is 90 cubic metres for AECI's peroxide plant in Durban.
These are fabricated for chemical purification and pollution control for such operations as sugar mills and chemical industries. We also fabricate all the internal components required. The largest fabricated to date is 2m diameter x 14m high for AECI Chlor-Alkali Plastics in Sasolburg
We are able to fabricate equipment such as :
