Marine

 

Metal piping has to be replaced two or three times during the average life of a vessel, thereby costing two or three times that of the original investment. When labour costs, downtime and the maintenance costs are added to this, the total could easily be more than six times the original investment.

 

Hovoy REDNIX GRE pipe systems from HOVOY can last the life of a vessel. They especially designed for shipboard service using highly corrosion resistant epoxy. The pipes reinforced throughout with tough glassfiber strands creating a lightweight, strong, corrosion resistant pipe that meets most standards for shipboard systems.

 

Hovoy REDNIX pipe systems provide a long service life in the harsh marine environment. During the typical life of the vessel, metal pipe will need replacement two or three times. REDNIX GRE pipe systems can last the life of a vessel. GRE pipe is highly resistant to both internal and external corrosion without surface preparation or special coatings.

GRE pipe can installed for less of the cost than Schedule 80 Carbon Steel piping systems. The adhesive joining system eliminates the need for certified welders, or special welding techniques. The lightweight of the pipe also eliminates the need of expensive lifting equipment.

 

REDNIX GRE pipe can installed much faster than steel or alloy systems. REDNIX marine pipes are easy to install, maintenance personnel can quickly trained to cut and complete a joint. Proper installation procedures described in HOVOY literature and HOVOY field technicians are available if required.

 

Offshore

 

Historically, offshore production platform, drilling rig and FPSO owners and operators have had to face the grim reality of replacing most metal piping.

 

This has resulted in piping systems costing two or three times the original investment.

 

REDNIX GRE pipe systems offer the cost-effective, maintenance-free and lightweight solution that ensures problem-free operation during the service life of the installation.

 

The many advantages of HOVOY GRE pipe systems.

 

Durable and corrosion resistant REDNIX GRE pipe is inert to internal corrosion caused by (salt) water, chemicals, residues and other bacteria. Similarly, it resists exterior corrosion even in aggressive environments.

Lightweight - easy to install

 

REDNIX GRE pipe systems, being just a quarter to and eighth the weight of comparable steel pipes, is easy to install without the need of heavy installation equipment, welding or protective coating.

 

Reduced cost

 

The installation cost of REDNIX GRE pipe systems is typically 80% of the cost of carbon steel. The smooth internal surface reduces the head loss resulting in lower pump energy consumption.

 

Wide range of pipe systems

 

HOVOY offers a complete range of pipe systems in a variety of diameters and pressure classes for many different applications. Pipe systems are available in diameters up to 500 mm (20 inch), pressure classes up to 245 bar (3500 PSI) and standard lengths up to 12 m. (40 ft).

 

No contamination

 

REDNIX GRE pipe does not produce rust or scale, which could foul steam traps, valves and other components.
