For more than 30 years we have successfully installed FRP piping systems – our own and those made by others – in industrial processing facilities all over the US. In fact, part of our turnkey proposition is that RPS can install and service everything we manufacture.
Most FRP pipe systems and equipment failures are the result of installation errors. On some work sites, fiberglass reinforced plastic is still seen as a novel material and sometimes it’s handled as a metallic. Our Service teams see a lot of over-torquing, for example, which introduces high stresses and leads to failure at the flange.
Dual laminate piping installation is a unique craft, and we are often called upon to complete all thermoplastic welding of field joints, particularly the fluoropolymers.
RPS knows composites. From initial design through final installation, helping you realize the full benefit of these non-metallic corrosion resistant materials is what we do.
