PPF

Mission: We pledge to provide Customers and Vendors with the highest quality and service and innovative technology through the abilities and creative talents of Team PPF.

Plastic Pipe Fabrication, (PPF), a division of E.J. Prescott Inc., opened in 2008 through the acquisition of Geotex Fabricators. Team PPF is a valuable resource for PVC and HDPE pipe and plate custom fabrication work, including prefabricating piping components to make installations easier.

Team PPF offers molded and fabricated HDPE manholes and catch basins. We also offer several products for storm water applications including StormTreats and catch basin hoods. We make storm water dentention tanks from HDPE pipe sizes 2' to 12' in diameter. Team PPF provides HDPE pipe for culvert sliplining, assists with installation, cellular concrete annular space grouting, leak stopping in manholes, catch basins, tunnels and foundation walls. We supply and assist with the installatioin of prefabricated liners for ponds and storm water tanks including field seaming and pipe to liner penetrations.

Team PPF is trained in the application of Warren Environmental System epoxies which can be sprayed on concrete or steel to provide the ultimate coating, especially in sewer environments. The 100% solids no voc epoxies are not paints but a plastic like coating that is hard like ceramic and can rehabilitate structures including existing concrete or brick manholes and catch basins, tanks, clarifiers, tunnels and treatment plant areas.

We specialize in solutions for your needs.

Our Products

    Team PPF Announces Partnership with Warren Environmental, Inc. to sell & apply industry leading, high build, structural epoxy.

    Plastic Pipe Fabrication (a division of EJP) is proud to be the licensed applicator of Warren Environmental Systems 100% Solids Epoxy Coating. This unique product and application process has the ability to produce a ceramic-like, plastic finish in damp environments that can resist attacks by hydrogen sulfide and other aggressive chemicals. Structures can be completely rehabilitated with minimal or no out-of-service time. Warren Environmental System (WES) is environmentally friendly and safe to apply in confined spaces.

    WES epoxy is used by a growing number of municipalities to protect sewer manholes from hydrogen sulfide attack as well as infiltration from ground water. Industrial plants are finding many uses for WES epoxy in their underground systems including containment structures holding high temperature materials and chemicals. Sewer Treatment Plants as well as Water Treatment Facilities are finding WES very helpful in restoring concrete or steel tanks. WES has NSF 61 approval.

    The Warren structural epoxy manhole liner system delivers a stand-alone, self-supporting structure when applied at 250 mils to badly deteriorated structures. At 100 mils the system will protect new concrete from H2S attack and seal out infiltration, enhance the flow, and reduce buildup in the structure. The hard, ceramic-like plastic shell has proven to reduce odors emanating from manholes and pump stations. With over 10,000 structures in place, the Warren system has passed the test of time.

    The town of Bethlehem, New York was informed by their consultants their potable water clarifier was near the point of total failure. The cathodic protection system had failed, allowing corrosion to overcome the 50 year-old metal structure. The corrosion had penetrated 3/4 of the way through the sidewall of the vessel. The township had 3 options: 1) Build a new tank. 2) Patch weld 80% of the clarifier. 3) Apply the Warren structural epoxy at 1/4 thickness. At the two-year inspection, the plant supervisor said Bethlehem's gamble on Warren epoxy had paid off when the inspection revealed the structural epoxy to be in "like new" condition, with no sign of new corrosion.

    The Boston Water and Sewer Commission lined a badly deteriorated section of 8 foot brick storm drain. The test section had a crack 30 feet long, 8 inches wide through 4 layers of brick and severe scarring of the tunnel walls. The test section was repaired with Warren epoxy mastic M-301, and top-coated with 1/4 inch of S-301 during one eight hour window. Boston Water and Sewer has specified the Warren system on some of their most challenging crack repair and infiltration projects.

    Surface prep, testing, and inspection are the three most common causes of success or failure on any project. Surface prep must be a multi-step process, with a written detailed specification of what is acceptable for surface prep prior to application of epoxy materials. Field inspection is a demanding process and field inspectors should only be assigned the duties of inspection. Testing should be a combination of physical test in laboratories, measurements of wet materials during application, and post application testing such as adhesion test, spark test, vacuum test, etc.

    Effective catch basins are designed to catch storm water. The addition of a PPF Catch Basin Hood will help prevent pollutants and debris from flowing out of catch basins and into adjacent water ways.

    The PPF Catch Basin Hood will help clean your storm water without disturbing normal flow and without filter bags or screens to clean, maintain and replace.

    Today’s tougher storm water discharge standards have created a demand for catch basin separators that are effective, economical, and easy to install and maintain. The PPF Catch Basin Hood meets all these requirements.

    The product provides a baffle or hood over the outlet pipe that greatly reduces pollutant discharge. Because the hood is constructed of HDPE pipe grade plate, it is lightweight yet durable.

    Hoods or baffles have been around for over 100 years. Early hoods were designed as a gas trap in combined storm water and sewer systems. Because they were constructed of cast iron, they were extremely heavy and difficult to handle and install. Trapping gas can cause the deterioration of some pipes, so most hoods today are used to keep floatable oil and litter from entering the outlet pipe.

    The PPF Catch Basin Hood has a series of vent holes drilled into the top to allow air into the pipe. It is also built taller than other hoods so that the vent holes are never closer than 1/3 of the pipe size from the top of the pipe minimizing the chance of allowing in contaminants.

    Hoods are attached to the catch basin structure with provided stainless steel anchor studs and an oil resistant foam gasket. The gasket attaches to the hood's bolting flange and seals against the structure. The stainless steel anchor studs hold the hood firmly in position during both installation and removal.

    To remove pollutants, catch basin cleaning is done with a vacuum truck. The effectiveness of the PPF Catch Basin Hood will make those cleanings more frequent, but will result in cleaner storm water discharges.

    The 18" FFP Catch Basin Hood, which will cover up a 15" diameter pie, fits easily thorugh most existing catch basin frame openings--making it easy to retrofit an existing structure. Other sizes can be special ordered to fit through existing openings.

    The C.B Hood can be make to fit against any structure, round or flat, concrete or plastic and for any pipe size.

    Different configurations can be built to suit your requirements.

    Five standard sizes are available for round or flat structures:

    12" C.B. Hood
    Fits up to 10" pipe

    18” C.B. Hood
    Fits up to 15” pipe

    24" C.B. Hood
    Fits up to 18" pipe

    30” C.B. Hood
    Fits up to 24” pipe

    42” C.B. Hood
    Fits up to 36” pipe

    When pricing or ordering the C.B. Hood, please provide the following information:
    • Outlet pipe size and type
    • Flat or curved wall catch basin
    • If curved wall catch basin, what diameter is it

    SPECIFICATION

    The Catch Basin Hood shall be constructed from solid wall HDPE pipe Grade plate. The hood shall be constructed so that is forms a baffle against floatable litter and oil. The hood shall protrude at least six inches or 1/3 of the pipe's inside diameter, whichever is greater, below the invert. The Catch Basin Hood shall be sealed to the catch basin structure with an oil resistant foam gasket. Vent holes shall be installed on the top of the hood to allow air flow into pipe. The Catch Basin Hood shall be attached to the structure with stainless steel anchor studs and nuts, allowing the hood to be removed and installed with minimum effort. The Catch Basin Hood is to be as manufactured by Plastic Pipe Fabrication or engineer approved equal.
