Pipex px® PP-H Packaged Pump Stations - Trusted by medical professionals

Pipex px® PP-H Packaged Pump Stations - Trusted by medical professionals

Broomfield Hospital in Essex, UK, first opened its doors in 1940 exclusively for the treatment of tuberculosis, 75 years on and it now offers a comprehensive range of acute and community based services.

As part of an Estate Rationalisation Programme started in 2012, the hospitals old medical records library is under-going a full refurbishment to create a new, state of the art Hospital Sterilisation & Disinfection Unit (HSDU).

Pipex px® were approached to design, supply and fabricate a polypropylene (PP-H) packaged pump sump chamber, used to assist with the sterilisation of surgical instruments and the processing of foul water drainage.  Client specifications also required the detergent chamber to be designed to withstand discharge media with temperatures of up to 95°C.

With our advanced capabilities and extensive manufacturing factory areas, Pipex px® were able to pre-fabricate the 3.3m high x 2.5m wide x 4m long chamber entirely off-site, complete with steel rebar, timber shuttering and all third party integrated equipment.  This aided in a fast track installation for our customer!

Additional chamber features also included a sealed access cover; access steps and an internal steal beam to support a platform housing two suction lift peristaltic pumps and filtration system.
