W&O, a global supplier to the marine and upstream oil and gas markets for pipe, valves and fittings, valve automation and engineered solutions, announced new fittings for the Georg Fischer SeaCor marine thermoplastic piping system. The addition of Schedule 80 drain waste and vent (DWV) fittings will complete the current product offering for SeaCor Schedule 80 thermoplastic pipe. Customers will now have access to a complete thermoplastic piping system solution, with one material and one installation process, for use in all nonessential grey, black and freshwater applications.

“W&O prides itself on being a complete solution provider to our customers,” said Todd Nestel, director of engineered solutions at W&O. “Growing our partnership with Georg Fisher and expanding the SeaCor line allows us to do just that by providing a high-quality, light-weight and cost effective solution to current and potential customers.”

As Georg Fischer’s preferred distributor in North America, W&O saw a need in the marketplace and worked alongside the OEM to expand the product line to now include unions; plugs; ball, check and butterfly valves, as well as special pipe supports and other installation accessories. Georg Fischer designed the fittings and is manufacturing the new, one-of-a-kind molds in its USCG-approved U.S. manufacturing facility in Little Rock, Ark.

The addition of the DWV fittings allows W&O to offer the SeaCor system for all shipboard sanitary and technical water management requirements. SeaCor can be installed from the water supply tank, through the pumps and into all onboard locations for water supply. The same system can be used to collect grey and black water, and bring it back for treatment and eventual discharge.

“The SeaCor system has many benefits for ship owners and operators, including reduced labor costs and lower material use,” said Steve Hartsaw, product manager for W&O. “Other cost-saving benefits can be garnered in overall weight reduction, extended system life cycle and lower maintenance costs.”

The SeaCor system is the only commercially available thermoplastic plastic piping systems that meets the IMO/SOLAS USCG requirements for flame spread, low smoke and toxicity. In addition to USCG approval #164.141/36/0, SeaCor has been approved for shipboard use through the ABS Type Approval program (Certificate #08=HS24293B-6-PDA) and is approved for marine use by Transport Canada.

W&O offers the SeaCor installation training required by USCG and ABS approvals, along with the IMO resolutions. Training can be organized at a location of the customer’s choice or at the local W&O facility, facilitated by one of the company’s certified trainers.
