REDNIX GRE pipe systems for Industrial applications

The many advantages of HOVOY GRE pipe systems.

Durable and corrosion resistant HOVOY GRE piping is inert to internal corrosion from water, salt water, industrial wastewater, chemicals, residues and bacteria. Similarly, it resists exterior corrosion even in aggressive environments. Cathodic protection is not required.

Lightweight and easy to install

GRE pipe systems, being just a quarter to an eighth the weight of comparable steel pipe, are easy to install without the need of heavy equipment.

Reduced costs

The installation cost of GRE pipe systems are typically 80% of the costs of carbon steel. The corrosion resistance and resistance to UV light reduce the maintenance costs for both aboveground and buried pipelines. The smooth internal surface reduces the head loss resulting in lower pump energy consumption.

Wide range of piping systems

HOVOY offers complete GRE pipe systems in a variety of diameters and pressures for many different application areas are available in diameters up to 500 mm (20 inch), pressures classes up to 245 bar (3500 PSI) and standard lengths up to 12 m (40-feet)., including a choice of joint systems.

Longer life

REDNIX GRE pipe system longevity reduces, or eliminates loss of service or costly shutdown.

No contamination

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

Low thermal conductivity

The thermal conductivity of GRE pipe system is approximately 1% of the thermal conductivity value of steel. This means REDNIX helps you save on your energy costs.

Traditionally, HOVOY has been a well-known supplier and manufacturer of GRE pipe systems. A position which achieved through constant product innovation, new techniques and improved services.

In addition to its activities in the piping business, HOVOY is expanding its horizon.

Entering the pipeline business

Based on many decades of experience, a series of pipeline systems has been designed to meet the demanding requirements the pipeline business recognizes. With these new pipeline systems, available in a variety of diameters and a choice of mechanical and threaded joining systems, HOVOY is geared to fulfill your requirements in many different application areas and climates all over the world. Whether your pipelines are in service in the harsh deserts of Africa, or the freezing cold in Siberia, HOVOY can offer a cost-effective solution to replace existing corroded conventional steel pipelines, or construct new pipeline projects.

HOVOY Glassfiber Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) pipeline systems - the cost effective alternative

Durable and corrosion resistant

HOVOY Glassfiber Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) pipe is inert to internal corrosion from chemicals, crude oil, residues, injection water and bacteria. Similarly it resists exterior corrosion even in aggressive environments. Cathodic protection is not required.

Lightweight - easy to install

HOVOY Glassfiber Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) pipeline systems are easy to install without the need of heavy equipment.

Reduced costs

The installation cost of Glassfiber Reinforced Epoxy (GRE) pipeline systems are typically 80% of the costs of carbon steel.

The resistance to corrosion and to UV light reduces the maintenance costs for both above-ground and buried pipelines.

The smooth internal surface reduces the head loss resulting in lower pump energy consumption.

 

 Marine

Top

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 labor 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. Cathodic protection is not required.

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
