A stainless steel socketed pipe system from ACO Polycrete was used in a recent upgrade of the drainage layout at Thomas Foods International, NSW.

One of Australia’s largest meat processing companies, Thomas Foods International recently upgraded the drainage layout of its Tamworth plant in an effort to reduce downtime caused by drainage maintenance while seeking a more durable solution.

The ACO pipe system was specified by Woods Plumbing to replace some of the existing HDPE drainage pipe systems beneath the kill floor and processing areas. 

The ACO Pipe stainless steel socketed pipe system provides the modern metal alternative to PVC and HDPE soil and waste pipework. All components within the range are chemically pickled and passivated for durability and corrosion resistance, allowing the kill floor and processing areas at the plant to operate without closures.

Pipes of 110mm, 75mm and 50mm diameter were used in the project.
