Urethanes Plastic Pipe - Durothane AR Piping Systems
Durothane AR Abrasion Resistance Piping Systems
By Creative Urethanes
A full line of 100% polyurethane schedule 80 dimensioned
pipe & components are available for use in a range
of High Abrasion - High Wear environments.
Originally introduced to the international market place
as "Slurry Pipe", "Durothane AR Pipe"
has found rapidly expanding applications in many types
of viscous fluids and particulate transportation systems.
It is specifically designed for environments where abrasion
and/or corrosion make other alternatives uneconomical
from a maintenance perspective. In addition, superior
flow rates and ease of installation can provide operational
and installation savings. Manufactured using engineering
grade urethane polymers produced by Uniroyal Chemical,the
50 PSI Durothane AR System has an unmatched record for
quality and dependability.
Specific design features
associated with Durothane AR are:
- ABRASION RESISTANCE
Based on ASTM wet sand test,Durothane AR has a rating 12
times better than carbon steel and 15 times better than
- CORROSION RESISTANCE
Durothane AR has the ability to withstand wide ranges
of ph (5 to l0) in transport fluids while operating
in temperature ranges comparable to other non-metallic
- FLOW RATE
Based on Hazen-Williams coefficient of l50, Durothane
AR has a minimum of 250% less resistance to flow than
steel which may allow forthe use of smaller cross
sections and less costly pumping equipment.
Lightweight Durothane AR can be easily fabricated
using generally available connectors or adhesives.
Durothane AR piping systems are translucent in color
which allows for visual inspection of the piping systems.
