Solutions for ship building and offshore
Ships and offshore platforms are not only floating cities but are also essential for the worlds economy. Therefore, preventing corrosion is more important here than anywhere else. With GF Piping Systems, corrosion is no longer an issue. Cost-effective and high-quality plastics are your right choice. We will help you increase production by reducing maintenance time and overall operational cost. For different applications on board we have a lot of piping systems to choice of:
Grey and black water
Our ABS, PVC-C and PVC-U solvent cement systems and our fusion-jointed systems, PE100 and FUSEAL® Sea Drain, are all ideal for waste water. These plastics can be used even at very low temperatures. Like all our plastic systems, they do not corrode and therefore provide a much longer service life. Additionally, they exhibit high mechanical strength, which is very important on ships.
A water treatment system for drinking water or waste water is always necessary on board a ship. As well as water conditioning for swimming pool water. The best solutions for these applications are our ABS, PVC-U, PVC-C and PP-H systems. These have the advantage of being very light weight and fast installation. Due to the weight advantage, they are also very suitable for use on yachts.
Hot and cold drinking water
To supply your state rooms or the kitchen with water, we recommend our INSTAFLEX® (PB) in combination with iFIT systems. Both withstands temperatures from 0 °C to 95 °C and are therefore resistant to hot water. Thanks to its flexibility, the material PB (INSTAFLEX®) is also very easy to install, it can be obtained pre-fabricated in lengths of 40 m rolled together.
Ballast systems, transport and bunker lines
Larger dimensioned systems are necessary for bilge, drainage and ballast systems. PE100 is ideal for such applications. It is on offer in the dimension range 20–400 mm, including a large selection of fittings. Among the multiple benefits are light weight and good abrasion resistance. It can be installed with electro fusion jointing, which is very simple to do and saves time.
