Plasti-Fab fabricates its own 4′, 5′, and 6′ diameter wet well barrels as well as all of its own pipe stubs built to match the ID. and O.D. of whatever type of pipe is in the field. The cone top and manhole is built to surpass H-20 wheel loading of 16,000 lbs. The custom made lockable fiberglass hinged lid is provided with heavy-duty stainless steel hinges, and is designed to withstand over a 1,000 pound load. The heavy-duty fiberglass ladders are also built by Plasti-Fab to far surpass all OSHA requirements for fixed ladders. The ladder rung meets the 200 lbs live concentrated load requirement with a safety factor greater than 5. Boots are neoprene sleeves that slip over a wet well pipe stub as well as the pipe to which it is to be connected. It is secured in place with stainless steel bands. The material is typically a neoprene or neoprene blend. The neoprene boots allows for flexibility and adjustability of alignment and elevations. For pipes greater than 12″, the material is typically ¼” thick x 10″ wide and is custom-made to fit the O.D. of the piping systems. For pipes that are larger than 18″, the material is 3/8″ thick and 12″ wide and is also built to match the O.D. of the piping system. Both of these custom-made boots are supplied with 4 stainless steel bands for each individual boot.
This stands for Fiber Reinforced Polyester. Most frequently, it is used in place of the word fiberglass. These polyester resins are typically good for most acids found in sewers and chlorine applications, but do not do well with exposure to caustic chemicals. Typically, they have a temperature range in the neighborhood of 180° F.
