For a more durable solution, ACO Pipe was used in the upgrade of the Mars Petfood Plant in Bathurst.Pedigree, Whiskas, My Dog, Dine and Smackos are pet food brands produced at the upgraded $100m Mars Petfood plant, Bathurst NSW.

The project involved a new processing building and the installation of new equipment within the new and existing buildings. A bio-filter was installed to connect all the buildings on the site.

Due to the high temperature of the waste water used in the processing and cleaning stages of production, it was deemed that HDPE pipe systems were not suitable.

Designers required a more durable solution and therefore specified ACO’s stainless steel push-fit waste pipe system, ACO Pipe.

ACO Pipe is manufactured from durable, grade 316 stainless steel for high corrosion resistance.

Stainless steel also has a low coefficient of thermal expansion compared with HDPE, which tends to fail when operating temperatures vary between 10°C and 60°C.
