Double Skin 'Pipe in Pipe' Bunded Pipe Work for Fuel Oils

Secondary contained pipe, also known as pipe in pipe or bunded pipe, is becoming industry standard for underground petroleum, fuel oil and chemical pipework requirements. UPP from Franklin Fuelling is a HDPE (high density polyethylene) primary pipe and a secondary pipe to add a further level of protection to the environment, our qualified installation engineers, certified by Franklin Fuelling, can install the UPP pipe work system complete with leak detection capability and the highest levels of environmental protection. Double wall, pipe in pipe manufactured in HDPE has many advantages over the traditional steel pipe with mechanical joints. These include:

Pipe-in-Pipe UPP

  • Longer coil lengths (upto 100m) allows for less joints. It also allows for sweeping bends - again less joints.
  • Electrofusion welding 'Gemini System' for fast installation & strong assemblies which allows direct burial with no need for inspection chambers.
  • HDPE is corrosion resistant
  • Integral EVOH liner gives great chemical compatibility for hydrocarbon and alcohol based fuels.
  • Smooth bore gives low resistances for efficient pumping.
  • Unmatched resistance to ground movement.
  • 'Over Pressure' leak detection for the highest levels of environmental protection and monitoring.

The primary pipe allows for the safe transport of fuel within the fuel delivery system, the principle function of this is to connect the storage tank to the dispensing pumps or appliances being supplied. The flexible pipe and fittings allows for curves and gradual bends but where branches are required, Tee fitting and elbows are available.  The continuos secondary outer allow an over pressure leak detection system to be used for the ultimate in environmental protection and monitoring standards.  Please call us or us our contact page to make an enquiry.
