Mission Critical Pipe Systems


Petroleum – Chemicals – Abrasive Slurries

Petroleum & Chemicals

Electr-O-Fuze™ is strong, extremely tough, and very durable. Whether you’re looking for long service, trouble-free installation, flexibility, resistance to chemicals, Electr-O-Fuze™ pipe will meet your requirements.

Lower life cycle costs
-Corrosion resistance. Does not rust, rot or corrode.
-Leak tight. Heat-fused joints create a homogenous, monolithic system. The fusion joint is stronger than the pipe.
-Maintains optimum flow rates. Does not tuberculate, has a high resistance to scale or biological build-up.
-Additional cost savings are achieved by a lower instance of repairs. Treatment costs encountered in traditional piping systems are eliminated.

Reduced installation costs
-Fewer fittings due to pipe flexibility.
-Allowable bending radius of 20 to 25 times outside diameter of the pipe.
-Lighter equipment required for handling and installation than with metallic materials.
-Lightweight and longer lengths allow for significant savings in labor and equipment.

Abrasive Slurries

Advantage Earth Products (AEP) manufactures a triple layer abrasive resistant pipe in Jacksonville, Florida. Our Tuff Skin pipe’s inner layer increases the service life of our HDPE pipe. Tuffskin offers a significant cost-savings potential due to extended intervals between required maintenance shutdowns.

Tuffskin Abrasive Resistant pipe features excellent mechanical properties and sliding abrasion resistance. Low-temperature flexibility, fungus resistance, and excellent hydrolytic stability make it compatible with most environments.

Electr-O-Fuze™ Tuff Skin pipe sticks are available in IPS sizes from 8″ to 18” and metric sizes from 180mm to 450mm. (Other sizes available on demand). Due to its rugged, noncorrosive construction and lightweight materials, it provides a cost competitive solution with reduced installation time and is ideal for underwater applications.

AEP Isometric Power Plant

AEP manufactures single wall and double wall fluorinated high density polyethylene HDPE pipe. Fluorinated pipe has been manufactured for over 15 years and has been used successfully in over 5000 sites in the USA, Europe, Africa, South America, Middle East and Australia. It is engineered to provide primary and secondary containment for all types of hydro carbon fuels, in addition to hundreds of chemicals, in sizes from ½” to 30″ in diameter.

Frialen® Electr-O-Fuze HDPE fittings are safe and reliable proven electrofusion technology using open wire principles. Frialen® Electr-O-Fuze fittings are the only fittings used in petroleum industry to also be tested and approved for use with natural gas and low pressure gas, thus providing unparalleled quality and protection. When used in conjunction with AEP’s Electr-O-Fuze™ HDPE pipe, it provides a UL971 compliant fuel installation with a 30 year life span. Frialen® Electr-O-Fuze fittings are available in sizes from ½” to 30″ nominal bore. Frialen couplers conform to 2 times the ISO requirements for electrofusion fittings, making it the safest.
