Sewerage systems manufacturing

The concept of sewerage systems

Sewage systems are designed to keep the general public safe from disease and untreated water. Generally constructed under cities and other human populated areas, sewage networks consist of pipelines which transport waste water to treatment plants, designed to protect the health of the public. All sewage entering these treatment plants is treated precautiously before being released into surface water again. Before sewerage systems manufacturing commences, numerous important elements are taken into consideration. The population in which these systems serve is one of the predominant factors and also the characteristics of the climate. Rainwater and sewage is usually transported through the same system, therefore it must be large enough to account for both factors. There have been several incidents of miscalculation over the past century and due to underestimations of the rainflow, sewage networks have filled up too quickly. This has caused sewage to spill onto the street which can cause mass infection and disease.

The turn of the industrial revolution

During the 19th century, many cities across the globe began to grow at an astronomical rate, which inevitably caused the sewage networks at the time to experience an overload. This urbanisation led to numerous sanitation problems and as the UK was one of the first countries to experience the growth caused by the industrial revolution, Parliament had to respond quickly by creating a more modern sewage network.

Nowadays the sewage networks that operate under our cities are labyrinths of engineering and contain thousands of miles of piping and pumps. Some of the world's best hydraulic systems are used to help administrate the flow of sewage and also to process it before the water is allowed to be released to ground or sea level again. In many cities, downstream estuaries of the largest local rivers are used as open sewers, an idea which was originally the inception of civil engineer Joseph Bazelgette in the mid 19th century. In modern times, the treatment of sewage takes place over three fundamental stages, primary, secondary and tertiary.

How Rariplast can help with sewage networks

We produce and provide a range of plastic piping and also work in the hydraulic systems sector. We have worked with numerous corporations regarding the design and installment of sewage networks and work n both the commercial and private industries. Our experience covers every aspect of sewage from domestic fittings to treatment plants.
