PPSL supplied, delivered, installed, tested and commissioned a large six figure district heating installation at the University of West England Bristol during 2016.
The project involved a sizable run of LOGSTOR series 1 steel pre insulated pipe, incorporating our high quality and recommended fusion welded (Band muff) joints, isolation vales with vents and drains, and capped branches for future expansion of the network.
The new district heating infrastructure was required to supply the student accommodation in line with a stringent programme of requirements.
The quality of installation and design was paramount, along with rigorous weld test procedures to demonstrate the high quality of our weld teams. PPSL only employ class 1 welders and use the highest quality third party testing companies to ensure welds are completed to the highest standard. All the weld teams use the latest computer systems, clamps and associated equipment. All fusion welders are accredited with the majority having at least 12 years of DH experience to ensure joints are welded to last the test of time, and thoroughly tested in line with PPSL’s QA procedures.
PPSL’s leading quality offers a 12 year warranty on this project in line with the consultants, Hoare Lee, and Interserve’s requirements.
