Computerized pipe fusion and customized multimandrel filament winding equipment mass-produces nearly four miles of pipe for chemical plant in China.

Source: CPF Dualam Vancouver CPF Dualam Vancouver’s multimandrel filament winding machinery and automated pipe fusion equipment made it possible to manufacture and install 25,000-ft/7,620m of dual-laminated pipe at a BASF chemical plant in Shanghai, China.

“We are competing with titanium and stainless steel in the critical service industry for severe corrosion,” says Guyle McCuaig, vice president of CPF Dualam Vancouver, noting that dual-laminate pipe is lighter than comparable titanium pipe and comes in at about half the cost. Unlike lined steel, dual laminates will not externally corrode and, according to the company’s calculations, weigh 75 percent less.
