Reliability and cost savings with plastic

The plastic piping systems by GF Piping Systems are non-corrosive and do not need replacing throughout the entire service life of the system. Therefore, they contribute to the increased reliability of the system while lowering maintenance costs and staff requirements. They are excellently suited for applications involving drinking and sewage water, coolants, acids, leaches, and other chemicals, as well as abrasive compounds. Weighing up to 60 percent less than metal systems, they have lower static requirements and are easier to transport. Innovative jointing technologies such as cementing or integrated electrofusion allow them to be installed up to 50 percent faster. What is more, their low carbon dioxide footprint, energy efficiency, and recyclability are essential elements in lowering their environmental impact.

Everything for complete system solutions

Pipes

Maintenance-free and durable

The pipes are available in a broad range of materials to optimally match any type of application – also pre-insulated, double-containment, and ultrapure for special requirements. Cementing or welding connects them quickly, permanently, and reliably.

Fittings

Fast and safe jointing

The comprehensive range of fittings allows fast, safe jointing. Depending on the requirements, they can be permanent or detachable, also pre-insulated for cooling applications. Special fittings are available for material transitions and the jointing to steel.

Valves

Precise control for all media

The mostly maintenance-free, durable valves offer precise control also for the dosage of aggressive and abrasive media. A comprehensive range of special valves complements the butterfly, ball, and diaphragm valves.

Automation

Data processing and process optimization

The measurement and control technology provides system and process data that allows customers to optimize their application. Pneumatic and electric actuators allow the more efficient deployment of staff and a higher degree of process and quality control.

Services

Support in all project phases

The services of GF Piping Systems support customers in every phase of the project. This includes calculations, expert support in the selection of materials and products, the management of components and installation, as well as quality control.
