Over the past three decades, corrosion problems have reduced the life expectancy of the pipe system down to only a few years.Read more
A piping system is a set of pipes, normally closed pipes, joined together by fittings for transporting fluids (liquids and gases) from one location to another.
The need for piping systems originates from the fact that the point of storage or flow stream is generally distant from the place where it is required.
Piping systems are used to transport all known liquid or gaseous fluids, for pasty materials or pulp and for fluids in suspension, covering the whole range of pressure and temperature used in industrial applications.
Industrial piping systems (and accompanying in-line components) can be manufactured from metal, plastic, wood, concrete or fiberglass.
This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in piping systems for industrial plants.

Wherever liquids circulate in a piping system, flow measurements are usually essential. Whereas conventional flow meters are laborious to fit into the piping as a fitting or by borehole.Read more
