Vulcathene chemical drainage pipework has been supplied for a number of laboratories in a research centre on Maindy Park Campus at Cardiff University.
The new build research centre is a five storey construction, comprising of a cancer research centre, the university’s MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics and the Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute. The Hadyn Ellis Building, named after the late Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Haydn Ellis, is due to be unveiled in 2013.
Cardiff University specified Vulcathene pipework for the chemical drainage requirements in the research centre’s laboratories because it is the only product that has passed the test of time in terms of safely conveying chemical waste.
Lee Hirons of B and H Plumbing, who installed the pipework system, commented: “Vulcathene pipework is the ideal choice when it comes to safe chemical drainage in laboratories. The pipework is chemical resistant and can withstand the most demanding of laboratory applications; therefore it was the best pipework for this environment.”
Safety has to be the number one priority within educational spaces because experiments in science laboratories often lead to unknown combinations of chemicals being created, it is therefore imperative that the drainage system can safely transport any chemical concoctions. Vulcathene can offer educational establishments the reassurance that it has a proven pedigree over many decades in dealing with all manner of chemical waste cocktails from laboratories across the world.
