Pipe Upgrades and General Structural Strengthening

Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems are advanced carbon and glass fiber reinforced polymers that are used for power piping applications. Tyfo® Fibrwrap® systems can be designed as a fully structural pressure barrier per ASME B31.1/ASME BPV III and provide the lowest cost of ownership for protecting and rehabilitating the following types of power piping:

  • Low pressure (400psi or less) and low temperature (up to 150 °F) circulating water service lines (moderate energy applications)
  • Non-essential service water pipe rehabilitation and cooling water systems (ASME B31.1 design)
  • Safety-related service water pipelining and rehabilitation (ASME BPV III)
  • 30-inch minimum ID for man-entry or trenchless applications on horizontal, diagonal and vertical pipe
  • Repair/replacement of Class 3 metallic buried piping systems 

 

Tyfo® Fibrwrap® Advantages for Nuclear Power Pipe Rehabilitation Applications

  • No digging (trenching) for man entry pipe applications
  • Speed of installation
  • Small crew size
  • Low impact to facility function during or outside outage
  • Constructible in confined spaces and small project footprint
  • Regain original strength and/or add capacity to structure
  • Extend the life of the structure (40 to 80 year design life)
  • No hot work required during installation
  • Corrosion mitigation for concrete and steel pipe
  • Safe and environmentally compliant products and installation process
