Industrial Piping Systems Materials Asahi/America provides our customers thermoplastic piping systems in polyethylene, polypropylene, PVDF, and ECTFE (Halar®) materials. We publish an extensive chemical resistance guide to assist the user in selecting the proper piping system for the application, however, the guide cannot possibly cover every application. Accordingly, if there is a new application for which we do not have prior experience, we will provide a free spool piece for trials in the actual service, or samples of our piping system materials for immersion testing. After the trial...

Proline® piping systems are made from the highest quality polypropylene resins. Proline® is suitable for a wide range of applications with a pH range from 1 to 14 and at temperatures over 140°F. Proline® copolymer resins exhibit better properties than homopolymer polypropylene. As such, Proline® is the best choice for process waste drains that typically see varying media and temperatures. Proline® uses fusion joining technology with socket, butt or electrofusion. Asahi/America offers a full range of molded fittings and fabricated specialty drainage fittings such as wyes, p-traps, laterals....

Industrial Piping Systems Super Proline® - PVDF Super Proline® piping systems are made from the highest quality suspension grade PVDF resin. Super Proline® is suitable for a wide range of applications with a pH range of 1 to 8 and temperatures up to 120°C. Super Proline® Type II PVDF resins produced by suspension exhibit better properties than Type I PVDF produced by the emulsion process. Super Proline® is the best choice for chemical process applications that typically see varying temperatures. Super Proline® uses fusion joining technology with socket or butt fusion. Ideal applications:...

Industrial Piping Systems Ultra Proline® - Halar® (ECTFE) Halar® (ECTFE) is a thermoplastic melt processable copolymer resin in the fluoropolymer family consisting of ethylene (E) and chlorotrifluoroethylene (CTFE). Because of its excellent chemical and temperature resistance, Halar® piping systems are highly versatile and suitable for the broadest range of applications. Halar® can handle a pH from 1 to 14. Halar® does particularly well where other alternatives like expensive metal materials (titanium, alloy 20, 316/304L SS) or lined steel are being used with limited results. Halar® is used...

Industrial Piping Systems Installing any piping system properly requires preplanning. The installation is more than the welding of components. It requires the proper environment, material inventory, welding equipment, tools, and thorough training. The selection of the type of welding method conducted on a single wall industrial piping project should be based on the following criteria: • Material • Chemical transported • Sizes to be installed • Welding location • Type of installation • Available expertise A chemical system is a critical utility within a plant’s operation. An unplanned...

Industrial Piping Systems Design and Installation Welding Methods There are three main joining methods used for Proline® piping systems: butt, socket and electrofusion. Often a system will employ more than one of these options in order to facilitate the installation the best way possible. Each method yields an integrous – full pressure rated – fusion joint as strong as the pipe itself. The times to make and cure the joints are shorter than other joining methods like solvent cementing PVC and CPVC pipes, welding, soldering or threading metal pipes, adhesive bonding FRP pipes or...
