Pipework for process manufacturing of soft drink cans

Extensive pipework for a new beverage can manufacturing facility.

Scope of works:

The supply, design and installation of over 10km of process pipework in a state-of-the-art process manufacturing site. A new beverage can manufacturing facility in Peterborough required extensive pipework throughout its newly-built factory. Using the Mapress system, Arcade delivered extensive cost and time savings.

Key challenges:

  • The installation had to keep up with Crown’s fast paced construction schedule


  • Installed over 10km of pipework around the factory, liaising with other trades to deliver as required.
  • Clarified exactly what pressures and temperatures were required for each fluid being transported. These calculations allowed us to use the Mapress system
    rather than traditional welded stainless steel pipework
  • Using Mapress allowed us to deliver a 25-year warranty on the installation.
