While FRP and GRP pipe have a 50-year history in the industry it is considered a modern day product material with many new emerging applications. To contribute to the FRP pipe manufacturing history, Farassan’s technology center is continuously developing new products and systems to serve different sectors of industry. In addition to anti-corrosive characteristics, Farassan’s Fiberglass composite pipes possess superior mechanical and Strength to weight ratio and numerous other properties and advantages, which makes Farassan’s FRP and GRP products the material of choice by designers for all types of pipeline construction.
GRP Faratec pipes are composite pipes known worldwide as GRP (Glass Reinforces Polymer Pipe) or FRP (Fiber Reinforced polymer pipe). Development in composite technology has led to improvements in capabilities and applications of GRP pipes so that these kinds of pipes are used in many infrastructures nowadays. Because of the fact that GRP Faratec pipes benefit a superior manufacturing technology in comparison with the other GRP pipes, they’re chosen as the best alternative in prominent national and international projects.
Faratec composite pipes are suitable alternatives to replace other kinds of pipes such as Polyethylene, PVC-U, Carbon Steel, Titanium Alloy, Cupper Nickel, Ductile Iron and Stainless Steel. GRP Faratec pipes could be the most important and a unique alternative according to their high mechanical resistance as well as considerable chemical resistance against corrosion which almost all kinds of metal pipes have problems with. In addition, the lower cost of GRP pipes and their simple installation procedure, encourage the users to choose these pipes, especially when they’re compared to metal pipes.
•corrosion Impervious :
Farassan’s fiberglass composite pipes are being used in any industrial applications, where corrosion from the fluid and gas or the surrounding environment is the main concern and the cause of the pipeline failure.
•Easy to specify:
Farassan offers a broad range of pipes and fittings for any application and installation method such as above ground, underground, subaqueous, micro-tunneling, pipe jacking and more.
•Easy to install:
The smooth interior surface of GRP pipes cause to low fluid resistance, which could lower power requirements for pumping systems and also reduce the required diameter relative to other material. This characteristic could contribute to a substantial cost savings over the life of a typical piping system. The interior pipe surface remains smooth throughout life services, so fluid resistance does not increase with age.
•Smooth inner surface:
GRP pipes are installed easily and quickly due to its light weight. These can be manufactured up to 12m long to speed up installation compare to other materials, hence transportation and installation is easier than other material. GRP pipes are light weight which cause to less expensive installation, labor and machinery cost.
•Other Advantages and features of Farassan’s FRP PIPES (GRP PIPES):
Farassan GRP and GRE pipes are the best investment you can make in your piping project. Here is a list of cost-saving benefits and technical advantages of Farassan’s piping systems:
