Technical Center

Welcome to the RPS Technical Center. The purpose of this series is to provide you with a more technical view of FRP piping systems, and the many considerations involved in a successful design. If you’re not familiar with engineered pipe, we suggest you read the articles in sequence; the more familiar can start anywhere. Readers who complete the articles will have a broader understanding of and appreciation for pipe systems designed by RPS, and a great level of confidence in the pipe we manufacture. If you have any questions, please contact us.
