Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe (RTP)
If you are searching for RTP pipe manufacturers, FGS will be your smartest choice. We are the world-class leading reinforced thermoplastic pipe manufacturer producing a spoolable, reliable RTP solution for transporting hydrocarbons, refined fuels and gases. After reinforcement, strength-to-weight ratio, chemical compatibility, and paraffin buildup resistance of the pipe are greatly elevated. As a result, it has the ability to withstand extreme conditions.
Reinforced Thermoplastic pipe vs steel pipe
Steel pipes are no longer the optimal choice for pipeline transport. Although the cost of a reinforced thermoplastic pipe might be slightly higher, its versatility and durability are keeping the maintenance costs to a minimum. The structure of a reinforced thermoplastic pipe consists of five layers of protection including an abrasion-resistant outer jacket, an aramid or glass fiber reinforcement, an HDPE base piping, a Tybond layer and an inert hydrocarbon layer, rendering it resistant to extremely corrosive and abrasive environments. They can withstand salt corrosion, H2S/CO2 corrosion. This contributes to a longer lifespan for the entire system without additional costs.
Simple Installation Process
It is usually tough to install steel pipelines often because of heaviness. To commence the installation process, a lot of auxiliary equipment and a big team of technicians are the basic starting kits. While a massive amount of resources are invested, the installation speed, however, still remains 2 km per day. On the contrary, the installation process for RTPs requires less man-power and is less time-consuming because RTP pipes are much lighter than steel pipes. Installation speed can achieve 10 km per day. Apart from reducing the installation time and downtime, the spoolability of RTPs also helps corporates to minimize safety issues while streamlining operations.
A reinforced thermoplastic pipe offers a wide spectrum of liner options providing customization to match specific applications. In this case, selected materials’ properties will cater to various operating conditions, thus reducing maintenance and the total cost of ownership. That is why RTP pipeline manufacturers are gaining momentum in the market.
