Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD)

Rubber lined carbon steel pipe (RLCS) is used to transport corrosive chemicals, abrasive slurry solutions and many other liquids from one place to another. There are many material options that are capable of meeting overall pipe design criteria. Making an economic analysis of acceptable candidates based only upon material costs poses a very real danger. Well over half of the true required investment for a piping system (i.e. the in-place cost of the system) includes material, fabrication and installation costs as well as life-cycle considerations. Rubber lined carbon steel pipe is very cost effective when compared to other material selections:

INSTALLED COST COMPARISONS

Rubber-lined Carbon Steel (Sch. 40) 1.16 PTFE-lined Carbon Steel (Sch. 40) 2.94

We install rubber lining in pipe as small as 1½” dia. and as large as 144″ dia. We vulcanize (cure) the lining for pipe up to 88″ diameter in our autoclaves. Curing in an autoclave produces superior adhesion properties over other processes (i.e. atmospheric and internal steam). Autoclave curing also maximizes the lining life in the pipe versus other methods.

We apply rubber lining over many different pipe substrates including: carbon steel, aluminum, copper, brass, cast iron, stainless steel & fiberglass. We will fabricate and rubber line your pipe (ASME code or non-code) with a minimum lead-time. All rubber lined pipe orders receive the same attention, whether it’s a large order, or a single piece.
