When conveying aggressive media such as concentrated sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) with pressure and temperature conditions, the capabilities of many plastic piping systems can be quickly exceeded. At the same time lined steel piping systems have challenges due to the labor intensive joining procedures, high weight, and susceptibility to exterior corrosion.
In contrast, the SYGEF ECTFE system from GF Piping Systems was designed specifically as a robust solution for extreme chemical applications. At the same time, users benefit from quick assembly, a long system service life, and lower initial costs than welded PFA systems. The combination with the latest IR welding technology from GF Piping Systems provides the highest level of safety for people, the environment and the production process.

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.
Adapters and transitions are essential for connecting metal with plastic pipes or even two plastic pipes. This range covers multiple materials and offers reliable connections while offering high flexibility during assembly.
Bends and elbows are essential fittings that easily change the direction of pipes. The extensive range available offers not only multiple materials but also different curvature degrees to easily fit your piping system.
Caps provide a tight seal and stop the flow direction of a piping system. GF Piping System caps are available in different dimensions, different plastic materials and malleable iron to fit all of your needs. Temporary caps ease the pressure testing of an installed pipeline.
Flange connections are often the best mechanical connection between pipe segments or for installing valves up to very big dimensions.
Reducers are used for effecting a smooth transition between two pipes or fittings with different dimensions. The wide selection available covers an exceptionally diverse area of applications. They are available in short or long versions and in centric or excentric versions.
When creating branch lines, lightweight tee, wye, and cross fittings make installation much easier. These fittings are made from a range of materials and malleable iron and cover multiple dimension possibilities including various reductions on the same fitting.
Unions are the best mechanical connection between pipe segments and for installing all kinds of components up to the dimensions of d110/DN100. Unions are available in a wide range of materials and jointing options. The connection is fast and very robust.
Intended for use in numerous applications from chemical processing to water treatment, GF Piping System offers a wide range of diaphragm valves. This includes manual, pneumatic and electric operation combined with all plastic and diaphragm materials.
We provide a wide range of accessories to support your installation projects. Accessories are available for use throughout the life-cycle of your system and available in an agreed time-frame.
