Entry Pipes / Nozzle liners
When the need for mechanical strength offered by CRPs lined steel dip pipes is lessened, our entry pipes can be an ideal low cost solution to introduce liquor into a storage vessel. We manufacture them from HiPerFlon paste extruded PTFE tube, flared at one end to raised face dimensions to connect between suitable mating flanges.
They can be supplied in any length up to 20′ long for ¾”NB – 6”NB and 10′ long for 8”NB – 14”NB. Being a sacrificial sleeve, entry pipes are often used to protect the bores of glass lined vessels from mechanical damage. We can supply much larger diameter sleeves to protect nozzles on manways etc where needed.
They are normally supplied with the plain end cut perpendicular to the tube but if required we can supply these ends cut at 45 degrees.
Entry pipes can be supplied with a backing flange to bolt onto the end of a pipe spool to protrude into a drain etc where needed.
If an entry pipe is going through a nozzle then we will ensure it is sized correctly, so that it can fit. Please let us know the i/d of the nozzle and we will make sure we provide you with a suitably sized entry pipe.
We would recommend that if solvents are in the process the entry pipe should be produced from static dissipating / antistatic PTFE materials.
