Design Innovation

Aquatec’s Fibreglass Pump Station designs have received recognition from WHS Industry Bodies, Water Authorities & Councils for setting new standards in safety & serviceability.

Filament Would Construction
Aquatec’s Fibreglass Pump Stations are constructed using a state-of-the-art computerised winder and manufactured with the highest-grade resins and rovings to achieve benchmark standards of quality and integrity.

One-piece Chamber
The Pump Station base and sludge batter are mould-formed as one piece to strengthen the overall structure, while the steep sludge batter is shaped to prevent solids build-up, eliminating dead zones behind pump pedestals. The top cover, walls and base are glassed together to provide an impervious, holistic structure. The Pump Station base is designed to withstand pump weights, vibrations and ground forces.

Integral Valve Chamber

In the mid 1990's, Aquatec registered the design rights for Australia's only Integral Valve Chamber, featuring industry leading operational & safety benefits for maintenance personnel.

Integral Valve Chambers

Engineered to eliminate the line-up of separate valve chambers, Aquatec’s Integral Valve Chamber prevents differential ground settlement. The 90º dismantling elbows are located inside the Integral Valve Chamber, facilitating the safe removal of pipework and valves for maintenance personnel without entering the wet well.

External Valve Chambers
Aquatec provide flexibility by offering a range of Fibreglass External Valve Chambers to accommodate large pipework. Our standard moulds are glassed in a controlled factory environment and delivered to site as a complete unit to increase time and cost efficiencies.

    Product Design

    Aquatec’s product designs have achieved benchmark status with State Governments, Local Water Authorities & Councils.

    Hydraulic Design

    Aquatec takes an unbiased approach to hydraulic design to maximise pump efficiency and product longevity.

    Calculated in accordance with Water Authority requirements and the WSA sewerage code, Aquatec works closely with our clients to deliver expert knowledge across flows, friction loss, static lift, atmosphere, pipe sizing and air locks.

    Design & Drawing Services

    Aquatec's Design and Drawing Services deliver a full set of drawings customised to meet the unique needs of your project.

    Our Technical Consultants work closely with our clients to establish a detailed understanding of site conditions to determine Pump Station size, flow rate, head pressure, storage requirements and layout solutions.

    Product Integrity

    Government & Industry Bodies regularly consult with Aquatec for guidance on best practice product development & safety standards.

    Manufacturing Process

    Aquatec’s Fibreglass Pump Stations are manufactured in a controlled factory environment under strict ISO 9001: 2008 standards.

    The Pump Station mould designs are manufactured to exact specifications. Unlike cast in-situ Pump Stations, our product quality is not subject to weather, site conditions and associated time delays.

    Quality Control

    Aquatec’s manufacturing process is subject to a series of strict quality control measures to achieve superior product quality:

    • Controlled factory conditions
    • Computerised winders for controlled wall thickness
    • Checklists / hold points
    • Third party engineer's certificates
    • Transportation

    Environmental Benefits

    Aquatec’s Fibreglass Pump Stations offer considerable environmental benefits over
    Pump Stations poured in-situ.

    The Eco Choice

    Aquatec’s ability to deliver our product to site as a unit minimises excavation periods and disruption to flora and fauna.

    Our Integral Valve Chamber requires less space in the overall design, resulting in a smaller environmental footprint.  Every Fibreglass Pump Station design considers a provision for additional storage vessels to safeguard the environment against the potential risk of effluent overflow.

    Guaranteed Seal Integrity

    Aquatec's Fibreglass Pump Stations are manufactured as a completely sealed, one-piece vessel.

    All penetrations and wall fixings through the structure are carried out in the factory with compatible materials, allowing no chance of ingress or egress.

    New Standards in Safety

    Aquatec incorporates advanced safety features into the design of every Fibreglass Pump Station for the safety of installation & maintenance personnel.

    External Maintenance Access
    Aquatec’s Fibreglass Pump Stations are designed so that most components within the wet well can be serviced externally without entering the chamber, eliminating the need for confined space entry permits and reducing safety risks for maintenance personnel.

    Engineered Lifting Points
    Aquatec provides Engineered Lifting Points with each Pump Station to ensure safe installation.

    Reduced Excavation Periods

    Site excavations are often left unnecessarily exposed for long periods of time, presenting serious safety risks for installation personnel.

    Aquatec’s one-piece designs feature an Integral Valve Chamber to decrease installation time, reducing the excavation period required during installation.

    Access & Installation Safety

    Our product designs have dramatically reduced the likelihood of accidents by incorporating external maintenance & access methods.

    Stainless Steel Swift Lifts

    Within the base increment, 316 Stainless Steel “rated swift- lifts” enable safe, easy removal of lifting clasps during installation, eliminating any corrosion throughout the reinforcement.

     

    Access Covers

    Available in 316 stainless steel, aluminium, galvanised or cast iron, Aquatec’s wet well Access Covers feature a WHS approved safety grid as standard, providing an added lay flat, safety fall arrest system for maintenance personnel. Standard options are available, or custom solutions can be manufactured to specification.

    Optional Safety Accessories

    Lifting Devices
    Aquatec offers a range of Lifting Devices to enable safe pump removal for maintenance personnel in accordance with WHS requirements. 

    Access Ladders & Landings
    Available in 316 stainless steel, galvanised, powder coated, or fibreglass reinforced plastic, Aquatec’s Access Ladders and Landings can be incorporated into product designs where internal well access is required. Our Technical Consultants can advise on landing depths and sizes in accordance with WHS safety requirements. Aquatec’s Ladders can be manufactured with non-slip knurled rungs for added safety protection.

    Handrails
    Aquatec’s range of permanent and portable Handrails offer additional safety protection for maintenance personnel. Available in stainless steel, galvanised steel, powder coated or aluminium, our Handrails can be incorporated into Fibreglass Pump Station designs in accordance with AS 1657-1992 or Water Authority requirements.
