BAE Systems Rochester
BAE systems are the third largest global defence
company, delivering a range of products for the air, land and naval armed
forces. The Rochester site is home to The Defence Avionic sector of the company
which prides itself on being at the forefront of defence technology. It is
currently undergoing a heating overhaul, replacing three large stream boilers
with modern heating techniques. Completing the installation was Anglia Pipework
who used Uponor Pre-insulated Pipe System in an above ground situation to
distribute the heated water around the building with minimal temperature
Having used Uponor's domestic products for the best
part of six years, Anglia Pipework used their knowledge of flexible plumbing
techniques to install Uponor Thermo-Twin Pre-Insulated Pipe in to the roof of
building. The decision to use a lightweight plastic option over more
traditional material was taken because of the increased heath and safety
pressure placed on the installation by a fully functioning workplace operating
on the floor below. The renovation work was to decentralise the heating network
from three stream powered boilers, breaking the heating structure down into two
separate systems, using gas boilers as the main source of power.
Uponor Pre-Insulated Pipe is the proven name for
the innovative, flexible, pre-insulated plastic piping system, able to
transport a variety of liquids both inside and outside of buildings. Its
material properties give long service life and as the pipes are low weight and
highly flexible, they can be installed easily and quickly, even over obstacles
and round corners. This eliminates any health and safety issues regarding
lifting and transporting of heavy pipework throughout the site. In addition,
pipe comes delivered to site in precut lengths meaning the number of joints
needed is minimal.
We know that this isn't the traditional way of
installing the pipe but the flexibility of Uponor system allowed us to do
exactly what we wanted to. Having used the Uponor pipework for domestic
pipework for the last six years we explored into their other offerings for
commercial applications and found the Pre-Insulated range ideal.
