Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the most broadly used thermoplastic materials, common to many industries. PVC is highly resistant to acids, alkalis, alcohols, and many other corrosive materials. It can be easily installed for chemical distribution and drainage, service piping, and irrigation systems. Compared with Schedule 80 systems, Schedule 40 PVC pipe and fittings are a lower-cost alternative for applications with lower pressures but requiring the same thermal and chemical resistance.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) is one of the most broadly used thermoplastic materials common to many industries. PVC is highly resistant to acids, alkalis, alcohols, and many other corrosive materials. PVC Schedule 80 applications are frequently used for chilled water systems, chemical processing, industrial plating, and chemical drainage systems. Thermoplastic PVC (polyvinyl chloride) systems are light, flexible, tough and provide exceptional corrosion resistance. Because of these and other properties of a high quality engineered thermoplastic, the savings that can be realized in initial installation and continuing maintenance costs are substantial.
Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC) is simultaneously light, flexible, tough, and exceptionally corrosion-resistant. CPVC is highly resistant to acids, alkalis, alcohols, and many other corrosive materials. With its ability to withstand higher temperatures than PVC applications, CPVC is used in media temperatures up to 210°F (intermittently) and can typically be found in hot water systems, hot acid distribution, and waste systems. Thermoplastic CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) systems are light, flexible, tough and provide exceptional corrosion resistance. Because of these and other properties of a high quality engineered thermoplastic, the savings that can be realized in initial installation and continuing maintenance costs are substantial.
Chemical processing is one of the most demanding applications for a piping system. Finding the right system that is corrosive resistant, cost effective, and will last for years is a challenge. The ChlorFIT™ Schedule 80 Piping System from GF Piping Systems is an ideal choice for many of these applications. The system is made of Corzan high-performance CPVC (chlorinated polyvinyl chloride) and has over a 30-year track record in the chemical processing industry.
The system reliably handles aggressive chemicals such as nitric acid, sodium chloride, sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid and hydrochloric acid. Please always check our chemical compatibility guide or contact your GF representative to ensure your parameters such as concentration, pressure and temperature are appropriate for ChlorFIT™ before specifying or installing the system. In addition, the system handles higher temperatures than most plastic piping systems, and is much lighter and easier to handle than metal solutions. It is always recommended to be factory trained prior to installation.
COOL-FIT is a complete system solution for secondary cooling and refrigeration piping systems. The system is based on the tried and tested ABS plastic system from GF Piping Systems which contains pipe fittings valves and transition fittings, now with the option for preinsulated pipe and fittings with outer jackets in black. You can adapt the system solution to your particular needs. For example white preinsulated for food production halls or standard plastic pipe with control valves for pump houses or OEM chillers. The system is water and vapour tight. Ideal for the transportation of chilled water, iced water, salt solutions, glycol solutions and organic salt solutions.
Fields of Application:
E 100 is a third-generation polyethylene thermoplastic of high molecular weight.
Its advantages are:
The material is approved for use with foodstuffs
PE 100 is a new, high grade polyethylene.
Industry has been assessed clean-up expenditures which far exceed the costs to install protective measures. When penalties and fines are added to the costs of cleaning up spills and leaks, it becomes obvious that industry has a legal and financial responsibility for protecting our environment. George Fischer’s Secondary Containment System provides the necessary environmental protection at a fraction of potential clean-up costs. The system includes many features which yield benefits to the owner, engineer and installer. The retrofit capability and chemical resistance of Contain-It make this an ideal choice for containment piping of chemical process lines. Advantages •economical split pipe and fittings (solid pipe available) •fits over virtually any carrier system •lightweight and easy to install •clear construction for visual leak detection •outstanding chemical and corrosion resistance
Fuseal is resistant to the corrosive action of alkalis, alcohols, acids, solvents and salt solutions. Dilute mineral acids and aqueous solutions of acid salts, which are so destructive to most metals, have no affect on the Fuseal system. In general, Fuseal is attacked only by strong oxidizing acids and weakened by certain organic solvents and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Fuseal will not rust, pit, scale, corrode or be affected by electrolysis. Excellent chemical and physical properties make the system ideal for handling corrosive waste solutions present in laboratory and industrial DWV applications.
Fields of Application:
Fuseal 25/50 PVDF piping systems are engineered to solve many of the problems associated with return air plenum piping or handling aggressive chemicals at elevated temperatures. PVDF provides a very broad range of chemical resistance, thermal stability as well as a low flame spread and smoke density when tested in accordance to the ASTM E84.
Fields of Application:
Federal, state, and local regulations have been created to protect our environment from industrial pollution. Protection of the soil and water table are of primary concern. The Fuseal Squared system, with a modular design, is a reliable and cost-effective solution by which to safely convey industrial and laboratory waste products. Excellent chemical and physical properties make the system ideal for handling corrosive waste solutions present in laboratory and industrial DWV applications where double containment is required.
Fields of Application:
Excellent piping system solution for demanding chemical and water applications, even at elevated temperatures. Uses include delivery of pharmaceutical grade purified water (PW) and DI water, using hot water steam or ozone sanitisation. Due to its excellent chemical resistance it is widely used in chemical distribution systems.
High Purity products are specialty products by definition. Procedures and protocols to manufacture and deliver such product must reflect these circumstances. Ultimately the overall Ultrapure Water (UPW) system integrity is assured from source to point of use by the complete integration of SYGEF Plus PVDF products and associated jointing technologies. When SYGEF Plus PVDF products are matched with our state-of-the-art welding technologies, system reliability, purity, safety and longevity are assured. Adhering strongly to accepted standards such as SEMI, SEMATECH, ISO and DIN, we control the entire process from the injection moulding of the fittings and valves, to the extrusion of the pipe as well as the design and construction of the fusion equipment. A complete set of courses in welder training and joint inspection rounds out our offering to the customer.
This vinyl double containment piping system is fast and easy to install, and is available with a complete selection of pipe, fittings, and valves. Additionally, an innovative "valve-in-valve" design is offered which allows full containment pressure rating. Double-See™ is available in PVC and CPVC; either material may be primary or secondary (PVC x PVC, CPVC x PVC, CPVC x CPVC) with Clear PVC always being an option for the containment pipe. System size options range from 1/2" x 2" to 6" x 10", meeting virtually any application requirement. Installation versatility allows simultaneous joining throughout a system or in combination with patented closure couplings which enable practical compliance with the ASME B31.3 requirement for visual inspection of all primary joint connections during the pressure test before closing the secondary piping joint.
Double containment piping systems are ideal for ensuring safety when transporting corrosive, toxic, or otherwise hazardous media.
When a leak from the primary pipeline occurs in a double containment system, the fluid is safely contained by the secondary pipe. End-users typically implement a leak detection system to alert operators when a leak has occurred.
These systems can be used in multiple applications, primarily for handling chemical and effluent water transfers.
