Pipes Handle Harsh Conditions
Extruded pipes and tubing made from Victrex Peek polymer reportedly offer the capability to deliver greater long-term reliability in high temperature, pressure and corrosive conditions. The pipes are currently available in sizes from 0.24 in (6 mm) up to 8 in (200 mm) outer diameter (OD), with wall thicknesses depending on the OD, from 0.03 in (0.8 mm) up to 0.2 in (5 mm).
Pipes are available in straight lengths or, for smaller diameters, in coiled lengths of up to 10,000 ft (3,000 m). Pipes can be joined using a range of connectors and adhesives, and also by using conventional welding equipment.
