All SYGEF ECTFE components offer extraordinarily good corrosion and permeation resistance while guaranteeing absolute reliability. Even with highly concentrated media under high process pressures and temperatures, the system boasts the highest chemical resistance with maximized system service life. This helps to minimize costs for service and interruptions. The high-performance raw material allows for use in the temperature range between -75 °C and 130°C.
Your benefits at a glance
Due to its excellent mechanical properties, ECFTE allows a 200% higher pressure range than PFA. This provides users with more efficient processes and higher safety standards.
Thanks to its high mechanical stability, the wall thickness of the ECTFE has optimal SDR and is 20% more efficient compared to PFA. Thereby the system enables higher flow rates with equal or less space requirements.
The ECTFE components are securely connected in a few minutes using most advanced IR-welding technology. Compared to pipes made of lined steel, installation time is significantly reduced.
For particularly demanding chemical applications, all system components, including jointing technologies, have been tested and confirmed under laboratory conditions. The influences of human error are minimized through the use of automated IR fusion technology.
Maximum reliability is achieved through the combination of material properties, tempered pipes, fluoropolymer expertise and extensive approval testing, including with highly concentrated chemicals such as H2SO4.
Cost-efficient process control is achieved thanks to the many years of excellent chemical and temperature resistance. Lower initial costs compared to conventional alternatives and faster installation times reduce overall project costs.
Thanks to an optimum wall thickness ratio to nominal diameter (SDR), the superior mechanical properties of the ECTFE system enable particularly efficient processes with high pressure and flow characteristics.
