Plastic-Lined Piping - Fusibond
Metallic pipe is strong, easy to work with and inexpensive, but even mildly corrosive fluids can rapidly eat away at it, from the inside out, severely limiting it's lifespan. Nonmetallic piping, fiberglass and thermoplastics, does not have the physical strength of metallic piping, but has excellent chemical resistance. Plastic lined piping combines the best of both common piping systems into one.
Plastic lined piping systems provide the chemical resistance of plastics and the inherent strength of steel, or alloy metallic piping systems. This is excellent for handling acids, corrosives and hazardous materials. Plastic lined pipe can be fabricated with either a loose or locked in liner, however, a locked in liner reduces the effect of the difference in expansion coefficient between the metal and the liner.
Fusibond is available with many different liner materials such as HDPE, PP, ECTFE, PTFE, PVDF, ETFE, MPFA and PFA. Plastic lined piping systems are available in two different pressure ratings, 150 lb. and 300 lb. Higher pressure pipe is available on special order. Fusibond is used in many different industries including food, chemical, pharmaceutical and petrochemical.
