Duraplus ABS is a lightweight process piping system that will reliably stand up to heavy duty service. It is made from a specially formulated material that offers outstanding physical and chemical characteristics, and weighs much less than alternatives such as copper piping.
Heavy duty performance
Duraplus ABS piping systems are designed to offer the durability needed for the most demanding industrial process applications. For instance, they can handle a variety of substances such as caustics, abrasive slurries, separation reagents, and low-temperature glycol. These piping systems are also suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. They are rated for operating temperatures ranging from -40 to 70 degrees C (-40 to 158 degrees F), and pressures from 75 to 230 psi (rated at 73 degrees F).
Duraplus ABS is made from a copolymer material — Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene — which makes it half the weight of copper pipes and one-sixth the weight of steel pipes, without sacrificing performance.
The material provides high impact strength and excellent ductility, as well as resistance to chemicals and long-term UV exposure. These lightweight piping systems are easy to handle and install with Duraplus solvent cement.
IPEX Inc. is responsible for the advanced materials and engineering behind Duraplus ABS. The Oakville, Ont.-based manufacturer is a leader in thermoplastic piping systems. It has one of the widest selections in the industry, and performs all engineering and manufacturing in-house. According to the company, its full-service approach is one reason customers trust IPEX.
“When you choose IPEX, you can be confident that all your piping materials are designed, built and backed by one company.”
