Floteks Expertise in Plastic Manholes
Floteks manholes are designed to be compatible with a wide range of plastic pipes. All Floteks manholes have been tested by applying pressure on the inside as well as the outside. All manholes can be produced with a yellow interior for increased visibility. New manholes can be designed according to your projects.
VECTUS has now signed a technical collaboration with Floteks of Turkey, to provide solutions in underground sewage management systems. The state-of-the-art plant for this has been set up in Gwalior.
|Due to underground waters and chemicals concrete manhole get thinner in time and crack causing leakages. In Europe, Concrete manhole producers have started to cover the inside of cement manhole with plastic, in an attempt to lower inner corrosion.||Resistance to water and chemicals is very high. Thermoplastic manholes will not leak, protection the environment|
|Compatibility with pipes|
|A connection between a concrete manhole and a pipe cannot be water tight.||A plastic pipe and a plastic manhole can form a water tight connection|
|May be damaged by earthquakes||May be damaged by earthquakes.|
|Due to its high weight, the manhole may crack or break while handling during transportation and assembly.||The weight of a thermoplastic manhole is about 5% of a concrete manhole|
|Assembly is long.||Assembly is short|
|Short lifetime. Requires maintenance.||Lifetime expectancy is 50 years. It will not require maintenance during this period.|
|Environment and Global Warming|
|A concrete manhole emits 33kgs of greenhouse gasses per year. This amount is increased to 423 kgs per year, if the manhole leaks.||A plastic manhole emits about 2 kgs greenhouse gasses per year|
|Cheap at frst purchase. In time, cost rise due to assembly, maintenance and short lifetime.||Seems expensive at frst purchase, but is cheaper in the long run with its superior attributes|
