As one of the leading GRE Pipe suppliers in China, FGS does not only produce high-end pipes but also encourages our clients to put forward any ideas about GRE pipe material specification. This is because we want to ensure that our clients’ specific needs are met and help them to achieve the most optimal results.
Glass reinforced epoxy (GRE) piping systems are able to accommodate extreme environmental requirements. For clients operating in the Marine & Offshore, Oil & Gas and (Petro)chemical industries, a GRE pipe is mainly used for utilities of cooling and fire fighting systems which require pipes with strong mechanical strength and extraordinary hydraulic efficiency. The superior axial and circumferential mechanical values of the GRE pipe distinguish itself from the glass fibre reinforced pipes.
The Tensile Properties Of GRE Pipes
FGS is one of the most pioneering GRE pipe suppliers in China that keeps on conducting research on the development and advancement of GRE pipes. GRE materials have been an ideal alternative to carbon steel pipes as the steel pipes are extremely vulnerable to eroding. A GRE pipe is made of the incredibly strong and inert fiberglass with inner liner being covered with C-glass and Amine Cured Epoxy resin for greater biochemical resistance to scrapes. Its physical layer, which shares the same structure with the outer liner, is coated with Amine Cured Epoxy resin and E-glass. These layers constitute extremely high mechanical strength that enables the GRE pipes to withstand intense heat and pressure. Besides, GRE pipes also have a broad range of diameters from 25mm to 2000mm.
The Most Non-corrosive Pipe Ever
The major difference between the GRP and GRE is the matrix material resin used for the attachment of the glass fiber. GRP pipes use Isophthalic Resin whereas GRE pipes use Epoxy Resin. As Epoxy Resin exhibits high chemical resistance and thermal resistance, they are extensively applied in industrial infrastructures where they can cater to a wider temperature range and a more diverse spectrum of chemicals as compared to GRP.
Application of GRE Pipes
As GRE pipes can withstand varying pressures, temperatures, and adverse corrosive oil and water environments, it is commonplace that they are employed in the oil & gas industry where common applications encompass oil field application, crude oil transportation, petrochemicals, and refineries. Other than that, their anti-corrosive property is suitable for desalination plants, geothermal energy plants, oil exploration and firefighting equipment.
