Fiber glass ¦nsulated&PE coated line pipe?

Fiber glass ¦nsulated&PE coated line pipe?

How can find fiber glass ýnsulated and PE coated line pipes?
thanks for your helps?

RE: Fiber glass ¦nsulated&PE coated line pipe?

Type fiberglass piping vendors into Google or any search engine.

Similar to PE coated pipes. Many supply companies can coat piping to your specifications or you can go to a coating company which will order and then coat the pipe for you.

dear td2k,
in my country we are not familiar with fiber glass insulated pipe and there is no company which involved with fiber glass insulation... I looked at the goggle and find some suppliers but they did not interested in...i think the amount of pipe is not  sufficient for them.
thanks for your helpfull ideas..

RE: Fiber glass ¦nsulated&PE coated line pipe?

If the pipe is buried do not use fiber glass insulation as it will soak up the moisture in the soil and be worthless.

For the length of pipe you have then buy the insulation in preformed shapes and have it put on by a insulation contractor at the site.

I might add that for plant work I use either foamglas for cold or buried lines and calcium silicate for hot above grade lines.  For long, buried pipelines, I use something else which has to be shop applied.

The only time I use fiber glass insulation in plant work is for noise attenuation reasons.

Finally, corrosion specialists hate PE coating as they regard it as inferior.  The most common coating is FBE and can be put on (or arranged) by your pipe supplier.  FBE also has a much higher operating temp than PE.

RE: Fiber glass ¦nsulated&PE coated line pipe?

Dear 1969grad,
Thanks for your helpful advise...
Could you please write full notation of FBE?
than I'll try to find if it's available in my country or not?

RE: Fiber glass ¦nsulated&PE coated line pipe?

FBE is fusion bonded expoxy.

RE: Fiber glass ¦nsulated&PE coated line pipe?

In your posts you do not indicate the operating temp which is an important consideration in selecting the type of coating and thickness.  From past experience in foreign countries (I am just guessing where you are) the well surface discharge temp can be quite hot.
