Dutypoint are able to offer a wide range of standard and bespoke prefabricated solutions including packaged booster sets with storage tanks, packaged pumping stations and modular equipment skids. When compared to installing multiple separate units, these solutions offer the potential to drastically reduce the amount of onsite installation time for a project.
Prefabricated GRP and polyethylene underground chambers are becoming the preferred type of pump station over the traditional method of constructing in-situ concrete chambers. However they are still inefficient in terms of the volume of concrete used and the labour intensive backfill and cover installation process. They also have their limitations in high-ground water applications.
QuikForm™ is a revolutionary design of underground chamber, incorporating an innovative modular concrete shuttering system.
Delivered to site as a fully pre-assembled system, the QuikForm™ pump chamber can be installed in less than half the time, and uses 50% less concrete compared to traditional GRP chambers*. QuikForm™ is super durable and suitable for up to 8m submersion below the water table.
*A study comparing the required concrete volume for a QuikForm™ installation versus traditional GRP chamber installation of equivalent size, showed that the average saving in concrete across the complete range is 69.8%.
This is due to the fact that the QuikForm™ shuttering is designed to optimum shape and width to achieve the required strength without using any more concrete than necessary.
