Piping & Associated Equipment

Durapipe PLX pipe is a high performance multi layered polyethylene composite pipe system supplied in either single wall or secondary contained and uses fusion welded fittings for the greatest joint integrity. UV resistant, corrosion resistant, abrasion resistant and abuse resistant, the PLX pipe system comes with a 30 year design life.

Shipman King also stocks and markets the NOV range of fibreglass pipe and fittings for service station forecourts. To compliment both of these piping systems Shipman King stocks the industry leading SGB leak detection system.

Fibre Glass Piping Systems

Red Thread IIA piping systems are made of fiberglass reinforced, aromatic amine cured, rigid, thermosetting epoxy resin.

The pipe is manufactured using the classical reciprocal filament winding process where fibers are wound around a steel mandrel under controlled tension at a prescribed angle, optimized for stresses caused by pressure.

Most fittings are made in matched-die compression molds where the pre-impregnated (pre-preg) fiberglass bands are chopped and placed in the mold cavities where heat and pressure are applied to form the consolidated part.

Fittings can also be made by the filament winding process, where efficiency and practicality make this possible.
