Borosilicate glass 3.3 pipeline components are widely used in chemical, pharmaceutical and allied industries together with other applications such as food and drugs, dye production and electroplating industries. This is because of the special properties of borosilicate glass 3.3.
- Smooth Surfaces allow easy cleaning and sterilization and prevent the build–up of solids on the inner walls.
- With almost universal resistance to corrosion, a long service life is guaranteed and maintenance is kept to a minimum.
- Their transparency permits visual monitoring of the process at all times.
- Being inert, the risk of contamination is negligible.
Pipeline components constitute a major chuck of the overall system and are constructed to connect from between different vessels, reactors and heat exchangers. All the components are suitable for operation under full vacuum conditions and are readily available in standard sizes from 15DN to 600DN.
Non-standard size components can also be supplied on special order.
Pipe sections constitute the main part of the pipeline and are accompanied by bends, tees, cross, reducers, spacers, etc depending on the pipeline design. All the components are compliant with BS EN 12585 and ISO 3586.
