Industries Served

While there is no limit to the possible new applications for plastic piping, the following examples serve to demonstrate the varied use of Plastics in many industries and markets.

Automobile

Atomobile

The automotive, aircraft, electrotyping, and canning industries use Plastics where possible in their plating processes. Plastics are a natural in this market, since almost every metal-salt plating solution can be handled easily including brass, cadmium, chrome, copper, gold, lead nickel, rhodium, silver, tin, and zinc.


Chemical Process Industry

Chemical Process Industry

The chemical processing industry includes a wide range of applications, many of which require excellent corrosion resistance, at higher temperature and pressure with mechanical strength. EPC INDIA's piping system can be specified when outstanding performance is required, particularly when acids & alkalis are encountered. The versatility and availability of the full range of pipe, fitting and valves help excellent material performance throughout the entire system.

Food & Beverage

Food & Beverage

Most plastic piping materials are approved by the National Sanitary Foundation and receive Food and Drug Administration approval when required. The purity of the end product in any food-processing application is critical and Plastics fit the bill beautifully.


Heating/Air conditioning/Refrigeration

Heating/Air conditioning/Refrigeration

Thousands of feet of PVC and CPVC piping have been used in central air conditioning systems of institutions and commercial buildings, condensate return lines, handling brine solutions in refrigeration processes, and the use of polyethylene piping for the refrigeration process in ice skating rinks.


Institutional Facilities

Institutional Facilities

Hospitals and school complexes are large users of PLASTICS particularly in acid-waste drainage lines for chemistry, physics and hospital laboratories. The preferred plastic material for this application is polypropylene. Life Science


Mining / Oil / Gas

Mining / Oil / Gas

Plastic pipe, itself a derivative of oil and natural gas, has successfully been applied in handling most crudes, salt water, and natural gases. Most natural gas distribution today uses millions of feet of plastic pipe. Polyethylene piping, colored beige or orange, is the preferred material for this application. In the mining industry, the most popular use of Thermoplastics is in ore leaching, in which the ore is treated with dilute sulfuric acid or sulfides and then with ferric sulfate solutions. PVC, CPVC, ABS, and PE piping are used in many of the leaching process stages. Plastics also are used for the movement of ore slurries and other piping applications in under and above ground mining.


Pharmaceutical / R&D Labs

Pharmaceutical / R&D Labs

Photographic Laboratories: All manufacturers of photographic process equipment and photographic chemicals specify and use thermoplastics.


Pulp and Paper

Pulp and Paper

These plants handle four types of media: liquids, steam, water, and stock. Except for steam, plastic piping can handle most of the other fluids under 275 F and 150 psi.


Shipbuilding / Marine Applications

Shipbuilding / Marine Applications

Shipbuilding, Marinas, Fish Hatcheries, Marine Research, Aquariums and Theme-water parks are using significant amounts of plastic piping especially in salt water environments where internal and external corrosion resistance is important.


Semiconductor / Electronics

Semiconductor / Electronics

The manufacturers of solid-state electronics products such as Semiconductors, Rectifiers, and Printed Circuitry demand ultra-pure water to clean their products and prevent contamination. Thermoplastics are the preferred materials for handling ultra-pure water in which an ion exchange or demineralization system is employed. PVC, CPVC, PPH, PVDF and other fluorocarbons are used for water distribution systems. Plastics also are used for handling etching media such as sulfuric, nitric, hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids. Wastewater and air-handling systems required in the electronic industry also use Plastics throughout.

Steel Plants

Steel Plants

Ironically, steel mills are replacing steel piping with Plastics. The mills realized that their manufacturing costs improved with use of Plastics because of reduced maintenance, lower material costs and longer life provided by PLASTICS.


Water/Waste Treatment Plants

Water/Waste Treatment Plants

Whether in primary or secondary treatment phases, Plastics are used throughout water and sewage treatment facilities. Influent and effluent lines, sludge lines, chlorine and sodium hypochlorite lines, fluoride and alum lines, and many other piping lines use PLASTICS.
