Orange County (FL) recently completed substantial upgrades to one of its main water supply facilities in the Orlando area. This is a critical facility and power continuity was a key criteria for the design team. Here are some of the highlights for the scope of work related to the emergency generator’s fuel supply system.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has added Perma-Pipe’s ULTRA-FS piping system to their Approved Equipment List. ULTRA-FS™ is a prefabricated, secondary containment piping system consisting of a fiberglass-clad steel conduit system. It is designed to provide superior strength in fuel-oil piping applications above or below ground.

Perma-Pipe PAL-AT is a state of the art leak detection cable system that locates potential problems anywhere along a sensor string. The PAL-AT is often provided for secondary contained fuel-oil pipe systems, or any other application where quick and precise leak detection is required. Sensing cables are available to sense the presence of water-based and hydrocarbon-based liquids, or hydrocarbon-sensing only. PAL-AT sensing cables can be air-dried and re-used, are suitable for monitoring for the presence of corrosive chemicals.
