  • GRP Slurry Pipes Resist Extreme Abrasion

    Abrasive wear within the slurry piping systems occurs when hard particles are forced against, or slide along, the pipeline wall, causing continuous shearing and cutting that lead to loss of wall thickness. In harsher conditions, steel slurry pipes also need to be turned over at least every two months because pipes abrade more on one side than the other. In more extreme cases, these effects cause ...
