As a general or mechanical contractor, you want to know the piping materials for your job are fabricated to meet or exceed project specifications and delivered in a timely manner. McWane Ductile-Ohio has a dedicated Treatment Plant Division providing specialized Design-Build services to support your project from concept to final buildout. Our team provides pre- and post-bid services to ensure your projects are completed on time and on budget.
Design and Build Services
McWane Ductile has four full-time estimators on staff with over 60 combined years of treatment plant experience. On each project, our estimating team does a complete specification and bid review for accuracy.
We can provide take-off support, bidding, and stage pricing as well as a custom quote to meet your preferred method of construction.
We support your projects with a full submittal package for review and engineer approval. We also offer precise CAD line drawings and lay schedules, with a complete Bill of Material to help you save time and money during installation.
Fabricated Ductile Iron Pipe
Flange and wall pipe are fabricated with custom lengths to meet specific project needs. We offer the most generally accepted joint configurations in the industry.
We specialize in abrasive linings and industry specific coatings to meet the needs of the owner and engineer.
We offer various appurtenances such as taps, welded outlets, thread-o-lets, and collars for specific design needs.
Our fabrication facility produces ductile iron fabricated pipe for water and wastewater treatment plant projects across the country. From Design and Build concepts, to the smallest pump and lift stations, we are the preferred fabrication facility.
Pipe Connection Options
We fabricate flange pipe to meet and exceed the latest revision of AWWA C115/ANSI A21.15 standard. Pipe from 3-inch up to 48-inch in diameter can be fabricated in our facility. While a flange connection is the most common joint type for treatment plants, there are many other options and joint configurations that can be fabricated.
Joint combination can vary from one end of the pipe to the other. McWane Ductile can fabricate the specific joint you need for any project.
Different pipe joint options include:
When penetrating an exterior structure or traveling through an interior wall, typically a wall pipe is needed to make the connection. McWane Ductile can meet your wall pipe needs with any configuration that is required.
Wall pipe can be fabricated with most joint types McWane Ductile offers. Special wall collars are continuously welded to assure proper water stop function.
Linings & Coatings
Most fabricated pipe specifications call for a cement lining with a bituminous seal coat. Other sewer, sludge, or grit lines may need additional abrasive inhibitors such as Protecto 401™ or specialized glass lining materials to meet the engineer’s requirements. McWane Ductile-Ohio can fabricate pipe with these specialty linings for your project.
In addition to the abrasive inhibitors offered, we can provide the piping with bare metal on the inside, for blower or air lines specified on the project.
As for the outside of the pipe, we offer standard bituminous coating, Tnemec and Sherwin Williams primers, and epoxies, as well as other specialty coatings that may be required. Be sure to contact your McWane Ductile Sales Representative for all available primers and coatings.
Sometimes projects call for modifications to be added to the pipe barrel. McWane Ductile can make these customizations to meet your needs.
Typical modifications include:
- NPT Taps
- Weld-on Bossed Outlets
In the event a non-typical piece or fitting is needed, please contact your McWane Ductile sales representative to inquire on the potential to create these items.
When pursuing a treatment plant project, the McWane Ductile Treatment Plant Division is here for you from concept to final installation. We take great pride in providing education and training classes to water professionals throughout the water and wastewater industry.
