Glass Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) Pipes
Amiantit also manufactures a wide range of GRE pipes, fittings, flanges and spools predominantly used in industrial, mining and petrochemical applications. Lightweight and easy to handle and install, GRE pipes have a smooth internal surface that reduces friction and enables a smoother flow capacity. There is a lower thermal conductivity in GRE pipes compared to steel, which is only 1% of steel values. This in turn, reduces insulation costs and heat loss.
The other major benefit of GRE pipes is the fact that, once they are installed, they are more or less maintenance-free. GRE pipes are well suited for environments where corrosion resistance is required at a reasonable price. Main uses include petrochemical process lines, oil and gas systems, fire-fighting systems, offshore and onshore systems, and ship and marine applications. GRE pipes are available with diameters ranging from 25 – 1200 mm.
