Fiber Reinforced Plastic Piping Systems and Pipe Supports for Reliable Performance, 19PEERS

Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) piping and equipment have been an important part of pulp and paper processing for over 60 years.  FRP is an excellent material of construction for the corrosive services of these processes.  The composite construction of FRP materials can vary widely, depending on the manufacturer and fabrication method.  Correspondingly, material properties and behavior of FRP systems can vary, influencing the piping design and the system arrangement.  Ensuring mill safety and performance are paramount.  The pipe support arrangement and design of pipe support elements are critical to the reliable performance of FRP piping systems.  The behavior of FRP piping varies from that of other piping materials, such as metals.  Additional attention to design concerns is necessary in meeting performance expectations.

We will discuss the best practices for design of pipe supports and pipe support arrangement of FRP piping systems.  The author will provide examples of the Do’s and Don’ts for FRP pipe support design and arrangement.  Additionally, essential design considerations and lessons learned will be presented to optimize system performance and to maximize the reliable service life of FRP piping systems.
