Video Comparison of PSP® Vent Pipe and FRP Duct Assembly

A common belief among engineers and facility designers is that coated stainless steel vent pipe is more expensive than FRP duct alternatives. While the upfront material costs of fiberglass may appear slightly cheaper on estimates, it is most important to compare equivalent systems, such as the resin and service type of FRP duct, and to include an evaluation of system installation time and cost.

Exhaust Duct Joint Technology Differences

Posted by Mike Baranski on May 22, 2018 10:50:09 AM

Here’s what it takes to make an exhaust duct joint on FRP Duct

Joints on FRP duct are traditionally accomplished by means of a labor intense "butt and wrap" procedure. Duct ends are ground smooth, exposed ends are sealed with catalyzed resin, and the duct or fitting is "buttered-up" and overlaid with several layers of resin and reinforcing fiberglass.

Adhesive curing at an ambient temperature of 70°F would take at least 24 hours to complete, so electric heating blankets are often required to accelerate the time to cure each joint.

An Easy Choice for WWTP Fume Exhaust Duct

Posted by Mike Baranski on May 22, 2018 10:48:40 AM

5 Advantages of A PSP® Fume Exhaust Duct Installation

Today, savvy WWTP owners, engineers, and managers are paying close attention to the potential risks and unforeseen costs of the materials that are being used in their facilities and systems. 

One area where material consideration can have both immediate and long lasting impacts is in the corrosive fume exhaust systems of a WWTP.

When it comes to duct installation, some plastic and FRP products may require a deep investment of time, money, and specialized labor. PSP® vent pipe, on the other hand, is stainless steel duct that's easy to install, easy to maintain, and easy on the bottom line.
