Chemical processing plants create some of the most challenging environments for industrial piping systems. The combination of aggressive chemicals and high temperatures can compromise the long-term integrity of most piping materials, causing corrosion, process leaks and premature failures that lead to costly replacements.
Even the more expensive alloys, lined carbon steel, and non-metallic alternatives, such as HDPE and FRP, are challenged to provide a cost-effective, reliable solution. Highly durable Pexgol piping solutions stand up to the immense challenges of chemical processing plants over the long-term better than any other piping material, metallic or non-metallic.
Pexgol is three times more resistant than HDPE, and twice more than steel.
THE PEXGOL ADVANTAGE
Made of special, high-performance material, Pexgol pipe and fittings are easy to be installed and offer the necessary mechanical strength and corrosion resistance creating the following advantages for chemical processing operations:
- Eliminate internal and external corrosion.
- Reduce installation time and promote safety.
- Lower life-cycle costs, maintenance and corrosion monitoring.
- Minimize total system costs with stable material prices.
- Provide excellent hydraulic capabilities.
- Wide range chemical resistance: check the full list of chemical compatibility in our Engineering Guide.
- Can be supplied in long length coils, reducing the number of joints, installation time and risk.
STANDS UP TO THE MOST AGGRESSIVE CHEMICALS
Pexgol’s vast range of experience in processing water piping systems during the past 40 years, includes acid waste plants, corrosive and toxic materials, slurry, industrial waste, high temperature fluids, and many types of abrasive materials.
Pexgol pipe and fittings reliably handle aggressive chemicals such as:
- Sodium hypochlorite
- Hydrochloric acid
- Sulfuric acid
- Phosphoric acid
- Sodium chloride
- Caustic soda
- Bromine acid
Pexgol inherently offers superior resistance to corrosive chemicals, high temperatures, and even the harshest conditions. In fact, Pexgol pipe and fittings are inert to most acids, bases and salts, and aliphatic hydrocarbons.
Pexgol provides an excellent balance of properties to improve reliability and user confidence while reducing capital and life-cycle costs, avoiding costly downtime and, most importantly, allowing chemical processing plants to stay operational and more productive.
