New SYGEF® ECTFE Piping System Safely Handles Aggressive Media without Corrosion

GF Piping Systems (GF) has added SYGEF® ECTFE to its extensive line of engineered piping systems. The new SYGEF ECTFE product was designed specifically to convey highly aggressive media, such as concentrated sulfuric acid (H2SO4) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), without corrosion, even under extreme pressure and temperature conditions.

Made of ethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene, the SYGEF ECTFE system offers excellent physical properties. The high-performance fluoropolymer material allows use in a broad temperature range from -105°F to 284°F (-76°C to +140°C), and with aggressive chemicals approved between 32°F to 176°F (0°C up to 80°C).

SYGEF ECTFE is available in pipe, valves, and fittings from 1/2 inch to 4 inches (d20 to d110 mm) and features quick assembly, long service life, and lower initial costs than welded PFA systems. Also, when compared to PFA, SYGEF ECTFE has a 200 percent higher pressure range and 20 percent more efficiency in pipe volume. Combined, these attributes provide more efficient processes, a higher safety standard, and higher flow rates in equal or less space. Used in combination with GF’s latest IR welding technology, the IR-110A, the SYGEF ECTFE system provides the highest level of safety for people, the environment, and the production process.

“Safety is the number one concern in applications with acids and other toxic chemicals,” said Brian Gordon, Head of Product Management for GF Piping Systems. “This system offers the exceptional reliability that affords owners, plant operators, and technicians the peace of mind they need for safe and efficient operation.”

With good chemical resistance, excellent abrasion resistance, and high impact strength, ECTFE meets all the requirements for demanding industrial environments, such as chemical processing, water treatment, and microelectronics.
