ACWAPIPE manufactures Glass-Reinforced Polyester (GRP) Pipes and fittings using the Continuous Filament
Winding (CFW) process. GRP products are superior to conventional piping materials due to the following
basic features and benefit:
GRP pipes are designed for long effective service life without any type of protection such as lining, coating, cathodic protection or any other form of corrosion protection which is required for traditional material.
This enables the GRP pipe end users to achieve low maintenance costs.
Light weight and Long Pipe Sections
GRP pipe is one forth of DI pipe and one tenth of Concrete pipe by weight, reducing transport and handling equipments costs. The standard pipe length is 12 meters and can be 18 meters reducing number of joints thereby reducing the installation time and cost.
Extremely Smooth Pipe Interior Surface
GRP pipe have very smooth bore which reduces fluid flow frictional losses thereby reducing pumping cost And this also helps in minimizing slime build up reducing total operational costs.
Flexible & Leak Tight Coupling Joint
GRP flexible joint with elastomeric rubber rings allows pipe line for small change in direction reducing fittings use. The leak tight joint is designed to eliminate infiltration and exfiltration from the pipe line system. The joints can easily be assembled with pipes reducing the installation time.
Advanced Technology & Flexible Manufacturing
GRP pipes are manufactured using advance technology and CFW process which gives products of high quality. GRP pipes can be manufactured in custom diameters and in any required length. This helps in easy installation especially in rehabilitation lining projects. GRP pipes produced with advance technology have lower wave celerity, which helps in reducing the surge and water hammer pressures.
