Naylor invests in clay as drainage material of the future
Naylor Drainage has invested significantly in its clay manufacturing operations in part to help keep up with demand for it's high end Thermachem drainage system - designed for resistance to both aggressive chemicals and thermal shock.
Clay drainage has enjoyed a renaissance recently as specifiers and contractors realise it has advantages of strength, longevity, flexibility along a pipeline length, has limited bedding material requirements and is the most environmentally friendly drainage material available.
Thermachem drainage is used throughout industry in areas such as chemical and food and drink processing plants, at universities and hospitals where aggressive effluents are discharged in to the drains, at power plants to deal with the high steam temperatures discharged from boilers and in areas prone to chemical spills such as ports and garages.
This year Naylor Thermachem drainage has been used on projects as diverse as a nuclear power plant, a jam factory, a brewery and energy from waste plants. The picture shows Naylor Thermachem pipes during installation at the new Battlefield Energy Recovery Facility in Shrewsbury.
Naylor offers architects and engineers a specialist drainage presentation which covers in detail the differences between different drainage materials and details of Naylors specialist drainage products including Thermachem, Denlock jacking pipe and Band-Seal couplings.
