GF Piping Systems at ACHEMA 2024: Solutions For High Eater Quality And Process Safety in the Chemical Industry

GF Piping Systems at ACHEMA 2024: Solutions For High Eater Quality And Process Safety in the Chemical Industry
31 May 2024  |
The Swiss flow solutions provider will display its portfolio for the chemical process industry including double containment, process automation, and the newly introduced IR-63 M infrared fusion machine at the leading trade fair for process industries, ACHEMA. From 10 to 14 June 2024, GF Piping Systems will show a diverse range of solutions designed to make chemical processes safe, reliable, and efficient.

The recently introduced IR-63 M infrared fusion machine adds comprehensive hard- and software improvements to the established product family. Thanks to a machine-controlled process, it ensures contact-free and high-quality welds for materials such as PVDF, ECTFE, PP-H, PP-n, PE, or PVC-U in chemical applications. The updates have resulted in 20% shorter preparation times, 30% fewer installation steps, and 50% shorter cooling times.

The SYGEF ECTFE piping system from GF Piping Systems has been developed to handle extreme chemical applications under high pressure and high temperatures. The excellent material resistance offers long-term safety in applications with highly concentrated chemicals such as sulphuric acid and hydrogen peroxide as well as other bases and oxidizing agents. Users benefit from a fast installation, long system life, and lower operating costs. GF Piping Systems ensures the reliability of ECTFE systems through the use of advanced infrared welding technology.

For applications involving hazardous media, the Swiss company will focus on the double containment piping system CONTAIN-IT Plus. Its compact and lightweight plastic components are corrosion-free and can be adapted to the needs of a specific application. As CONTAIN-IT Plus was developed according to the DVS 2210-2 guideline, the connection of the inner pipe can be verified before closing the outer pipe which increases the overall safety of the system.

When it comes to safety, reliability, and efficiency, process automation plays a major role. GF Piping Systems will therefore also display process automation solutions at ACHEMA 2024. The company offers a wide range of valves and actuation options, from pneumatic to digitally connected smart devices. Measurement and control technology allows customers to not only monitor and control their water treatment installations, but also to optimize processes and efficiency.

Joost Geginat, President of GF Piping Systems, is looking forward to visiting the ACHEMA 2024 and emphasizes the importance of this leading trade fair: “To meet the challenges of the modern chemical process industry, companies need innovative technologies to improve operational safety and overcome environmental problems. With our complete solutions, we enable our customers to operate their plants efficiently and secure a high water quality, in accordance with the specific requirements for applications such as water treatment or dosing and filling processes.”
