Pipe provides extended life to piping systems

June 30, 2008

Abresist piping is tougher than the raw ore, grit, sludge, ash, dust or other solids being conveyed hydraulically or pneumatically in chemical processing plants. According to the manufacturer, Abresist basalt-lined piping lasts five times longer than 1/2" wall cast iron. Pipes, elbows and fittings are custom engineered for each application and can be provided in a variety of end connection arrangements to easily retro-fit into existing systems or install in new ones using flanges, grooved couplings, compression couplings or welded attachment. Most coating systems can be applied to the carbon steel outer casing. Piping is excellent for abrasive slurry systems and pneumatic systems in pressure or vacuum conditions.
