Our standard FRP and dual laminate pipe systems, vessels, and custom equipment offer significant performance and life cycle cost benefits compared to carbon steel, stainless steel, rubber lined carbon steel, high nickel alloys, and lined steel materials. In addition to our manufacturing capabilities, we have numerous Field Service teams deployed throughout the US with a depth of experience and craft, and a focus on safety. We’re proud to say we work behind the fenceline of many Fortune 100 industrial manufacturers and processors.
Working with premier vendors like INEOS, Arkema, Chemours, and Owens Corning helps RPS produce superior products, and that means greater reliability for you. We also use advanced manufacturing processes and systems to ensure our operations run at optimal efficiency. This allows us to pass the savings we achieve in the process on to you, our customers.
To ensure our customers realize the full benefits of our products and services, our team of professional engineers can advise on material selection, specifications, component design, pipe stress analysis (PSA), and finite element analysis (FEA).
Hundreds of installations in more than 45 countries around the world are the best demonstration of our experience in providing composite solutions for corrosive fluid handling, storage, and infrastructure challenges.
