Allplastics Engineering was engaged by the Charles Sturt University to fabricate several water tanks in acrylic for their engineering laboratory.

The Allplastics fabrication team fabricated these acrylic water tanks to suit the application and requirements demanded of the laboratory. The tanks have been performing optimally ever since their installation.

The tanks are currently being used to demonstrate a water filtration system. As the water moves from one tank to another, the engineering students can view the filtration process through the clear optical grade acrylic of the tanks with nothing to obstruct their view.

The clear acrylic construction of the water tanks is an important part of the learning process as it allows the students to observe the clarity of the water as it advances through the various levels of filtration, enabling them to make adjustments as needed. The material also needed to be lighter than glass, since the classroom hosted a number of students, and the tank was constantly being relocated.

Allplastics’ acrylic water tanks have proven to be an invaluable teaching tool for the laboratory.

Allplastics Engineering can fabricate, cut, machine and glue a diverse range of acrylics and polycarbonates for a wide spectrum of applications and industries. These include scientific research, water treatment and monitoring, exhibitions and displays, mining and exploration, furniture, and much more.

Some of the advantages of Allplastics’ acrylic water tanks include trouble-free and leak-proof performance; lightweight construction with greater durability than glass; simple cleaning and maintenance; easy application of glue to acrylic surface compared to glass; and clear acrylic allowing students to view the filtration process.
