Durapipe‘s chemical drainage system Vulcathene has been specified for over £700 million worth of biomedical research facilities in Cambridge.

The Cambridge Biomedical Campus is a vital research facility, with several significant new developments under construction at Europe’s largest health science and medical research centre.

Vulcathene chemical drainage will feature within new research and support facilities at the University of Cambridge and the new global HQ of life sciences behemoth Abcam, to list merely a few.

The new state-of-art facilities will guarantee they continue to remain at the cutting edge of medical research by using the very latest technology.

This means high quality building materials and systems must be used to meet these standards; therefore, Vulcathene was an obvious choice for use in the chemical drainage specifications for all the new laboratories.

It was essential the drainage system could safely transport any chemical mixtures, as a wide range of in-depth experiments are to be carried out simultaneously, meaning the creation of unknown combinations of chemicals is commonplace.

Vulcathene provides such establishments the peace of mind that it possesses a renowned pedigree of over six decades in managing with a whole host of chemical waste cocktails from laboratories worldwide.

Vulcathene is a purpose designed chemical drainage system that comes in a duo of easy jointing methods; Mechanical – for demountable joints and Enfusion – for welded joints, offering entire flexibility for designers and installers of chemical waste systems.
