Plastic Piping Systems Adapting To Water Industry Needs


There’s a big difference between pipe and a true piping system, according to Brian LaBelle of GF Piping Systems. His insights from this Water Talk interview captured at ACE19 in Denver highlight the advantages of ever-advancing plastic piping capabilities that are helping the water industry engineer and fabricate resilient alternatives to aging infrastructure by using customized polyethylene, polypropylene, and PVDF piping systems. Those advances range from sure-connection LOKX couplings, to pre-insulated piping, to specialty components such as manual and actuated valves, built-in sensors, and even instrumentation for measuring flow, level, pH, conductivity, pressure, temperature, chlorine, dissolved oxygen, and more.
