ACO Polycrete stainless steel drainage system handbook

Monday, 01 August, 2011 | Supplied by: ACO Polycrete Pty Ltd


Manufacturer of stainless steel drainage systems ACO Polycrete has released a technical handbook for the building drainage industry. The guide is also a product catalogue for the ACO Pipe system and features an extended range of stainless steel pipes and fittings for multi-drainage applications.

The ACO Pipe system is a modern metal alternative to PVC, HDPE soil and waste pipework. All components are manufactured from austenitic grade 316 stainless steel and are chemically pickled and passivated for optimum durability and corrosion resistance.

The system comprises a comprehensive range of pipe lengths to 6 m for diameters up to 160 mm. Pipes and fittings are socketed and can be push-fit assembled. The range is designed principally to address the needs of all stakeholders, building owners, designers, builders and end users.

Features include: ease of installation as components are lightweight and are suitable for either push-fit or weld-up connection methods; and optimum joint integrity - components have a low coefficient of thermal expansion compared with HDPE (in particular) which tends to fail when operating temperatures vary between 10 and 60°C. The double lip sealing system offers good seal security and is suitable for extraneous conditions. As components are manufactured from grade 316 stainless steel the systems feature high corrosion resistance, long service life and low ongoing maintenance.

The 28-page, full-colour handbook is a guide to planners and builders and covers issues relating to planning, designing, assembly and maintenance. Below-ground installation is also featured as a special topic. Additionally, the guide gives specifiers and buyers clear detailed information on ACO Pipe, pipes and fittings; and auxiliary items to facilitate installation (brackets, cutters etc).
