AgruSafe Double Containment

Double containment pipes (aslo known as secondary containment pipes) are needed when a system deals with regulated substances, waste or hazardous substances. 

A double containment piping system consists of two pipes, one inside another. The inner pipe carries the substance and is called the carrier pipe, the outer pipe is called the containment pipe and its purpose is to protect the carrier pipe.

AgruSafe is available in Polypropylene, PVDF, Polyethylene and ECTFE (Halar). It is manufactured by AGRU using the latest production and fabrication techniques to ensure maximum system integrity.
   
Double containment is needed for industrial and process waste lines as well as for pressurised transfer piping. Typical applications are found in pharmaceutical and semi-conductor plants, steel mills, plating shops, or in the chemical and nuclear industries.


AgruSafe is available with carrier pipe sizes as small as DN 25mm. The standard range features carrier pipe diameters in sizes up to DN 250mm, but it is also commonly manufactured in larger sizes up to 600mm.

The standard butt-fusion welding technique is used when the carrier and containment pipes of the same material are used. In this case welding of the carrier and containment pipe take place simultaneously.

AgruSafe systems are available in a variety of pressure ratings - up to 16 Bar (PN16) - to suit the application.
 

For the most cost effecting system make use of the wide range of pressure rated pipe and fittings - for example PN 3.2, PN 6 or PN 10.
