FRP application and scope in Water - Waterwatse Industry

Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) are widely used in the waste water industry because of their reliability, corrosion and abrasion resistance, affordability, and design flexibility, but the market needs are extremely diverse.

FRP pipe is the best choice for many water supply and wastewater applications and can save the customer money in long-term maintenance and pump operating costs due to corrosion related friction loss.

In the waste water industry, FRP are typically used for clarifiers, basins, tanks, reservoirs, filters(e.g. trickling, roughing, bio), scum baffles, weirs, flumes (e.g. Cutthroat, Parshall, Palmer-Bowlus), influent/effluent channels, gates, stop logs, skimmers and manholes, filter media support grids, elevated platforms and walkways, odor covers, trench and vault covers —among much else.

Typical applications include, but are not limited to, industrial and municipal waste water supply, ferric chloride, hydrogen sulfide, acid waste neutralization, sludge water, desalinization, seawater intakes, corrosive water, and waste water transportation.

FRP provides excellent resistance to the effects of seawater, and waste water containing acids, alkalis and other corrosive compounds. Saiplus Composites can custom design pipe, tanks, vessels, and more to suit your waste water needs.
