PH1 manufactures lined pipe and fittings with static dissipating liners, commonly referred to as having ‘Antistatic’ properties. By combining the PTFE or PFA fluoropolymers with a small amount of carbon filler the liners are able to conduct any build up of static from the bore of the pipe to the steelwork.
Why Anti-Static Lined Piping?
There are many ways that electrostatic charge can be generated and accumulate. Static electricity develops when two different materials are brought together and then separated, one of the materials acquires electrons from the other material and becomes positively charged.
PH1s standard virgin fluoropolymers have excellent insulating properties typically 1016Ω, so in certain situations electrical charge can accumulate on the liner surface through flow electrification.
PH1s Anti-static liners allow any build up of charge to safely dissipate through the liner to the steel pipe. For the electrical charge to dissipate to earth the steel pipe must be sufficiently earthed, typically using earth bonding clamps, star washers on bolts, earthing studs or lugs etc.
We can supply Anti-Static Liners for all of our lined pipe and fittings. For more information on our range of piping please use the products menu on the top.
