At FCI, manufacture a range of GRE/GRV (Glass Fiber Reinforced Epoxy Vinyl Ester) resin pipes, fittings, flanges and spools. Lightweight and easy to handle and install, GRE pipes have a smooth internal surface that reduces friction and enables a high pipe flow capacity. The low thermal conductivity of GRE pipes relative to steel (only one percent of steel values) minimises the cost of insulation and heat loss. Another major benefit of GRE pipes is that, once they are installed, they are virtually maintenance-free. Diameters of pipes ranges from 38mm to 4000mm.
GRE pipes are well suited for environments where corrosion resistance is required at a reasonable price. Main uses include;
• Petrochemical process lines
• Oil and gas systems
• Fire-fighting systems
• Offshore and onshore systems
• Ship and marine applications
• Chemical transport
We use ASHLAND's DERAKANE and HETRON-922 Resin for these applications or where maximum resistance against corrosion is required. The data sheet and guide can be found along with our brochure for pipes in our Downloads Section.
