PFP (Aust) Pty Ltd specialises in providing a wide range of lining options for the most corrosive and abrasive applications. We provide our clients with the most durable and cost-effective piping solutions, in both Mining and Oil & Gas applications.
CRA Cladding and Mechanically Lined Pipework
Working with our sister company Cladtek, PFP (Aust) can offer a wide range of cladded, lined, bending and fabrication solutions for Oil & Gas Applications. Using our global material sourcing partners and the manufacturing capabilities within Cladtek we have the right solution for your project no matter how big or small.
Weld Overlay Clad Pipe, Fittings and Flanges
As the world’s largest CRA weld overlay pipe manufacturer, Cladtek has substantial cladding capacity.
We can provide weld overlay solutions to pipes, elbows, tees, fittings and flanges of almost any size. We are able to do this on a variety of overlay materials such as 3-400 Grade SS, Alloy 400, Alloy 825, Alloy 625, Stellite and more.
Mechanically Lined Pipe
Cladtek’s uses its patented process for manufacture of CRA mechanically lined pipe in a variety of materials, including Alloy 625, Alloy 825 and 316L.
Cladtek mechanically lined pipe is unique as the liner is trimmed back at the pipe ends and finished with a two layer Hot Wire GTAW weld overlay. This innovation makes installation time considerably faster and more cost effective.
Our induction bending capability includes both 3D and 5D bends, as well as two dimensional and three dimensional bending.
Cladtek has its own API 6A furnaces and quenching tanks to ensure we can deliver full service heat treatment in conjunction with bending.
Along with Cladding capability, we can offer spool and pressure vessel fabrication, minimising onsite works and vendors. PFP (Aust) is truly your one stop shop for all your pressure piping needs
Polyethylene Lined Pipework – (HDPE and UHMWPE)
As processes in tailings and waste storage evolve, pipelines are longer and require higher pressures, which is leading to more lined steel options being required in the market.
High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
PFP (Aust) offer HDPE lined steel for slurry applications which is a well-tested solution in the market. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is recognised as one of the most versatile plastic materials, which is tough and durable:
Advantages of HDPE
- Long-term reliability
- Resistance to corrosion, chemicals, deposits and tuberculation
- Freeze-break resistant
- Tough and durable
- Recyclable and eco-friendly
- Heat fusible for leak-free performance
Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMW or UHMWPE)
While HDPE is suitable for some applications, over time Industry has evolved, with the requirement to improve process and extend the life of pipelines. This has lead to PFP (Aust) offering more advanced solutions, such as Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW or UHMWPE)
PFP (Aust) offer UHMW Lined steel options, which has all the properties of HDPE, with the additional traits of being highly resistant to concentrated acids, significantly more abrasion resistant and a much lower friction loss.
Advantages of UHMWPE
- Resistant to stress
- Chemical resistant
- High flow capacity
- Abrasion resistance (over 5 times more that of HDPE)
- Lower pumping cost
- High resistance to cracking
UHMW pipes are superior to other pipes with high corrosion and chemical resistance, impact resistance, anti-adhesion, low-temperature resistance, etc. It is leakproof and perfect for slurry or water pipeline. The flow rate of UHMW pipes of the same calibre is greater than that of PCCP pipes and cast-iron pipes. With this flow rate, UHMWPE pipes can save 25% energy consumption. Its corrosion and chemical resistance allow it to be rust-proof, decontaminated and overhauled for decades after installation, making it an ideal option to save operating and maintenance costs.
