What is the use of the best pipes and fittings if you cannot be connected or only very elaborately connected?
Basically, almost all common connection types are possible when processing fiberpipe pipes. The most common are CONNECTION, LAMINATING, STICK-IN and manufacture of flange joints!
Adhesive technology is the most widely used method of making a pipeline out of pipes and fittings. For this purpose, the pipes are cut off, the adhesive surfaces are roughened, the glue is applied, the end of the pipe is pushed into the sleeve, fixed and then tempered.
This fast and cost-effective type of assembly has proven itself around the world over the last 20 years and is now beyond question.
The laminate compound is the classic way to connect GRP parts together. The workflow is familiar to anyone who has ever repaired their car, boat, surfboard or similar with GRP. Here, too, the surface is sanded and then glass mats and fabrics soaked with resin are applied according to specifications. After reaching the desired wall thickness, the laminate is dried, tempered and can immediately strain the connection.
The plug-in connection is particularly suitable for longer distances. In this type of connection, a groove for the locking rod and one to two O rings are provided in the socket area of the pipes. The workflow is as follows: The pipes are pushed together and then the heated locking rod is driven through the corresponding groove. Also in this type of laying, the fittings are connected to the pipe by gluing.
All common flange connections can also be represented with fiberpipe pipe systems.
Whether fixed flange, DIN, ISO, waistband and loose flange made of GRP, galvanized steel, PP coated or special flanges…..everything is possible.
Fiberpipe or Fibercast piping systems are characterized by a large variability in the type of connection.
Whether Straub, Mewa, Gruvlock or whatever, put us to the test.
