PSM Upgrade from Steel to KPS Plastic Pipe for All New Installations

Project Overview

Petro Systems Management (PSM) has upgraded from using steel pipework in their installations to using KPS conductive plastic piping, enabling simple, fast, long lasting installations, especially when used in conjunction with Fibrelite tank sumps and seal kits as pictured here.

PSM upgraded from steel pipework to KPS

Problem

The customer (PSM) traditionally installed petrol station sites in Ireland with steel pipe. With an eye on the future, and to help their installation team, PSM wanted to move towards using plastic conductive pipe for forthcoming installations, making the switch from the old, heavy, labour intensive, traditional method of working with steel pipes.


Solution

PSM already used OPW gauges and were familiar with the OPW team and the quality of OPW products; so when upgrading to plastic pipe (the now industry standard), they chose KPS.

OPW provided classroom and practical training at the offices of PSM before the project started to familiarise the installation team with the products and the theory behind electrofusion welding before going on site.

When the first site was under construction, the OPW team were again on hand to offer expert onsite installation training and guidance for all the OPW products used including KPS pipes and Fibrelite sumps.

Results

KPS piping proved to be the perfect solution for PSM. The client has now moved from a traditional steel piping to a modern long-lasting plastic conductive pipe.
