Aquatherm Advantages

  • Chemically inert, Aquatherm was approved to transport chemicals such as ethylene glycol, propylene glycol, caustic potash, caustic soda, sodium bisulfate, and phosphoric acid
  • Aquatherm's heat fusion technique allowed for a 50% faster installation than welded stainless steel, leading to its use on a second project
  • Along with leak-free connections, the 10-year, multi-million dollar warranty provided Webb Chemical with peace of mind

The Challenge

Webb Chemical was looking for alternatives to traditional piping systems and, if possible, labor and material savings while maintaining safety and quality.

 

The Solution

The plant manager realized Aquatherm would be an affordable, quality piping product that, if installed properly, would safely transport the chemicals without leaks.


WebbChemical1Situated in Muskegon, MI on about 20 acres dissected by active rail lines, Webb Chemical Service Corporation is a full-service chemical repackaging and distribution facility. The 50-year-old business provides commodity chemicals to a huge variety of industries including industrial, pharmaceutical, household, agricultural, aerospace, and many others throughout the U.S.

Webb Chemical grew from its commitment to quality and the environment, so when the company’s design staff was formulating plans for a facility expansion, finding a pipe system that mimicked those attributes was important.
