FRP and GRP Pipes – Features, Types And Advantages
We are a manufacturer of FRP and GRP pipes, specializing in FRP pipes for oilfield and building applications. FRP Pipe has anticorrosive properties, is simple to mount and transport, has a long service life, and needs minimal maintenance. It’s used to transport residential and commercial drainage and wastewater.
FRP pipes come in a number of sizes. Pipe fittings such as Tees, Reducers, Bends, Elbows, Flanges, Stub Ends, and others are made of FRP. Using a variety of resins, such as isophthalic, vinyl ester, biphenyl, and other manufactured resins, depending on the application and customer’s needs.
Features of FRP GRP Pipes
GRP pipes are made of a hybrid material that combines glass fiber and polyester resin. GRP is a non-reactive composite with excellent corrosion tolerance, chemical resistance, and weathering resistance.
GRP Pipes can be rendered in exact accordance to the laws of forces governing the construction of pipe that will come into contact with potable water and foodstuffs thanks to filament winding processing technologies combined with polymerization and vaporization processes.
GRP pipes with a smooth internal surface have a high “c” rating, allowing them to carry a high flow at a low frictional head loss, reducing pumping costs and saving energy.
Longer Service Life
The hydraulic design base (HDB) of GRP Pipes is such that it would have a protection factor of 1.8 times its pressure class even after 50 years of continuous operation. In comparison to C.I., STEEL, G.I., and P.S.C. Pipes, GRP Pipes can have a much longer operating life, longevity, and performance at a much lower life-cycle expense.
Strong surge pressure tolerance in contrast to steel and C.I. pipes, GRP pipes have a greater resistance to surge strain and a higher stiffness, which ensures they have a lower risk of bursting due to water hammer.
As compared to other components, GRP pipes have a lower strength-to-weight ratio. It is low in weight due to the use of 1/10 P.S.C., 1/5 steel, and 1/8 C.I. As a consequence, GRP Pipes are simple and convenient to add, manage, change, and fix.
Low Thermal & Electrical Inductivity
GRP Pipes have exceptional thermal insulating properties, so they don’t need to be coated on the outside to keep the temperature within the pipe constant. For GRP Pipes, cathodic security is also not needed.
