Fast Fabricators Inc supplies pre-fabricated, ready to install ductile iron pipe, fittings (Flanged, Mechanical Joint or Grooved) and valves protected with a variety of lining materials including Glass Lining, Ceramic Epoxy, and Fusion Bond Epoxy. All are manufactured to meet proper AWWA/ANSI standards.
Glass lining is applied in a unique process that forms a permanent chemical and physical bond with the metal surface. The finished surface is extremely smooth and has a hardness of 5-6 on the Mohs scale. These characteristics make glass lined pipe ideal for transfer of fluids with >3% solids and/or solids or chemicals that tend to adhere to the inside of bare pipe. In such applications, the use of glass-lined pipe will significantly reduce the maintenance, wasted energy and pump-repair cost associated with solids build up in piping systems. Fast Fab’s glass lining is also resistant to high temperatures, thermal shock and a wide pH range. One important application is the use of glass-lined pipe in the scum and sludge lines in sewage treatment plants, to eliminate the problems associated with Struvite and Vivianite deposits.
Ceramic-Epoxy lining is applied in another unique process that forms a chemical and physical bond between two dry chemicals and the metal surface. This product is ideal for transfer of fluids with the wastewater and sewage industry.
Fusion Bonded Epoxy is a one-part, heat cured, thermosetting epoxy coating designed for corrosion protection of metal and custom fabricated fittings. The epoxy is applied as to preheated steel as a dry powder which melts and cures to form a continuous, insulative corrosion barrier. the product is resistant to corrosive soils, hydrocarbons, harsh chemicals and sea water. The product is NSF-61 approved.
