CWS works closely with the largest FRP suppliers in Western Canada, giving us access to specialty materials and preventing long lead times on material procurement.
CWS can access a variety of FRP piping products, depending on service application, temperature and other factors. Some of the more common product lines are:
Red Thread Piping System
Red thread 16 & 25 bar piping has been used extensively with great success for petroleum production applications, such as saltwater handling, CO2, crude oil and gas, food processing services, water and wastewater facilities, HVAC, and chemical-processing services. It is an unlined, filament-wound product ideal for light chemical services in salts, solvents, and pH 2 - 13 solutions that corrode traditional metal pipe. The bell and spigot joining system is ideal for close tolerance piping. The T.A.B. (Threaded and Bonded) joints offer quick installation for long piping runs.
Green thread filament-wound piping is an excellent choice for applications, such as dilute acid, caustic applications, produced water, industrial waste, hot water, and condensate return. Carries NSF Standard 61 for potable water service. The bell and spigot connection offers quick installation and is ideal for close tolerance piping.
Centricast RB-1520 and Centricast Plus RB-2530 pipe is manufactured from high-strength glass fabrics, highly resilient aromatic amine epoxy resin, and features a barrier of pure resin for excellent corrosion resistance.
Bonstrand 2400 filament-wound piping, aromatic amine cured epoxy. Joining method taper/taper adhesive bonded or key-lock mechanical joint. Recommended for saltwater, brackish water, fire protection, potable/wastewater and sewage, oil field reinjection, crude oil transmission, and mild chemicals.
Bonstrand 3000 Bonstrand 3000A
Bonstrand 3000 series are manufactured using aromatic amine or anhydride epoxy. Recommended for water, wastewater, moderately corrosive liquids, and mild chemicals. Filament-wound glass fiber reinforced epoxy pipe with integral epoxy liner and exterior coating.
CWS also works with manufacturers of custom pipe. If your engineers or designers have specified the resin composition, thickness and layers of the FRP to be used, CWS can find a manufacturer who can build it.
