• Mining and Milling

    Fiber Glass Systems has a wide selection of lightweight abrasion-resistant & corrosion-proof piping systems to provide you with install-it-and-forget-it reliability in your remote and demanding environment.

    Our unique solutions combine innovation with proven technologies. As an example, we understand abrasion is only one part of the corrosion/erosion cycle so we embed structurally reinforced epoxy resin pipe and fittings with high alumina ceramic. The result is a piping system with the durability of ceramic and the corrosion-proof structure of epoxy. Ceram Core™ products are lightweight and long lasting in abrasive slurries like mine tailings.

    Mining's Best Kept Secret

    Another example of Fiber Glass Systems innovation is Fiberspar, our GRE and HDPE hybrid pipe that gives you the durability of HDPE and pressures capabilities greater than 1500 psi even at 180°F — this isn’t just any composite pipe. Another illustration is our proprietary Z-CORE resin systems which outperforms plastic lined steel pipe in the toughest chemical applications for a fraction of the cost and weight. 


    Whether you need a solution to water hammer for dewatering, or chemical resistance for acids and organics we have the solutions to your challenges. Our broad range of piping systems offers performance from full vacuum to 3,500 psi, temperatures from -75°F up to 275°F for liquids and 300°F for air. These products can be heat traced, steam cleaned, grounded, buried and used for downhole tubing and casing. We also offer mine dewatering and high pressure pumping solutions.

    Reliability

    Our products never need cathodic protection and rarely require thrust blocking. They substantially reduce maintenance because they never rust or corrode. For fluid conveyance from 1-1/2" to 72"+ for brine, acids, bases, organics, process piping, fuel, abrasive slurries or simply potable water, we have the install it and forget it reliability to the piping challenges you face in whatever remote part of the globe mining takes you.

     

    Key Advantages

    • No Maintenance: Impervious to corrosion and resistant to chemical attack caused by acids, solvents and bases, eliminating the need for protective coatings, wraps or cathodic protection. 
    • Low Installation Costs: Lightweight construction enables easy installation, reducing personnel and equipment needs. 
    • Improved Flow Capacity: Smooth interior pipe surface resists scaling and eliminates corrosion. 
    • Long Service Life: Calculated design life of 20 years, with an actual service life of over 30 years. 
    • Reliability: "Install It and Forget It" performance.
