On February 9th, Edwin Schimmel, project engineer at Dynaflow Research Group will join a session of EngineeringTrainerTV: “Fiberglass and Steel Piping: Differences in Engineering”. Together with Luuk Hennen of EngineeringTrainer.com, Edwin will discuss the differences in engineering between fiberglass and steel piping.
Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) piping, also called Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) piping, is a cost-effective alternative to corrosion prone metallic piping and non-reinforced thermoplastics. However, the design of FRP systems requires specific knowledge as there are fundamental differences compared to the design of steel piping.
FRP piping has been used in the oil and gas industry since the early sixties. The last decades have shown a large growth in the use of Fiber Reinforced Plastics (FRP). From the onset of the application of FRP systems, DRG has been involved in the development and introduction of FRP in the industry. Since our founding in 1983 DRG has developed a unique service portfolio dedicated to the design of piping systems including Fiberglass systems. DRG provides engineering services at all stages of the project life-cycle, from initial feasibility studies and conceptual design during the FEED stage, followed by system design, materials specification and qualification up to engineering support during installation.
