When it comes to pipeline work, Van Schie has been at the forefront for years. We do this, like drainage work, for many different clients, successfully within large and small projects. That experience gives you the assurance you need within your projects. If you want to choose materials now, read on below.
Sewerage and drainage
We perform pressure and deep sewer work in PVC, PE, HDPE and concrete. We advise, lay and we maintain your piping systems.
Explanation of materials
PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
Commonly known material produced after polymerization of VCM (vinyl chloride, chloroethylene). It is used for a multitude of purposes in construction and industry. Has the main characteristics of being cheap and easy to work with.
Polyethylene is a very strong material with good chemical resistance and excellent electrical insulation. PE pipes are resistant to sunlight and other weather conditions and can therefore be used permanently outdoors. Polyethylene is moisture resistant and can be used at temperatures from -30°C to +80°C. PE pressure pipes are used to transport drinking water, gas, wastewater and industrial pipes, but also serves as sheathing for electrical cables.
HDPE (High Density Polyethylene)
HDPE is an ecologically sound material produced at low pressure. A catalyst causes hydrogen and carbon molecules to bond together. HDPE was also formerly called polyethylene or thylene. Because it consists of only hydrogen and carbon, it is highly recyclable. In addition, the product has a very long lifespan, which benefits the environment. HDPE is characterized by high chemical resistance up to 80 degrees. As a result, HDPE is often used in water treatment and sewers, mainly for the transport of chemicals, gases and water. HDPE also has good weldability.
Concrete is a mixture of different types of stone, bound by cement. It is hardly influenced by other substances. Pipes consist mainly of larger diameters and are used for main sewers and stormwater drains. Concrete is also commonly used in piping technology in the form of manholes and outfalls.
In addition to this, we also construct drainage systems and go much further in the field of piping and sewerage. Wells, pressure lines and pumping stations are not new to us.
