GF Piping Systems adds SYGEF ECTFE to its line of engineered piping systems. The new SYGEF ECTFE product was designed specifically to convey highly aggressive media, such as concentrated sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), without corrosion, even under extreme pressure and temperature conditions.
Made of ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene, the SYGEF ECTFE system offers excellent physical properties, according to the company. The high-performance fluoropolymer material allows use in a broad temperature range from -105°F to 284°F (-76°C to +140°C), and with aggressive chemicals approved between 32°F to 176°F (0°C up to 80°C).
SYGEF ECTFE is available in pipe, valves and fittings from 1/2" - 4" (d20 - d110 mm) and features quick assembly, long service life and lower initial costs than welded PFA systems, according to GF. When compared to PFA, SYGEF ECTFE reportedly has a 200% higher pressure range and 20% more efficiency in pipe volume.
With good chemical resistance, excellent abrasion resistance and high impact strength, SYGEF ECTFE meets the requirements for demanding industrial environments such as chemical processing, water treatment and microelectronics.
