Fiber Glass Systems designs and builds high performance pipe and fittings systems pertaining to the requirements of shipboard piping.
MARINE AND OFFSHORE
CPS supplies high performance pipe and fittings systems to the specific requirements pertaining to shipboard piping. Compliance with and participation in the development of industry standards by IMO, ABS, USCG, LR and others have positioned CPS a leading supplier of marine-grade fiberglass pipe.
Design variations include elevated external pressure resistance for in-tank piping; electrical conductivity for hazardous areas; low smoke and toxicity for confined spaces and passageways; and fire endurance for fire suppression systems. Full engineering support is available for system design, stress analysis, material take-off and spool pre-fabrication.
Fiberglass Systems products meet the demanding requirements and regulations associated with the offshore market, whether on fixed, floating, ship-shaped or custom designed facilities. Exposure to the corrosive sea environment and various grades of water conveyed inside the pipe makes CPS the product supplier of choice for a variety of systems from fire protection to deck drains.
All pipe grades can be supplied with conductive carbon fibers as an integral part of the pipe wall in order to provide a uniformly conductive piping system for use in hazardous areas. Specially formulated conductive adhesives ensure conductivity across the joints. Fittings are manufactured with a 0.5 mm conductive synthetic reinforced liner so there is no compromise in performance when choosing the conductive option.
ENGINEERING, DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
CPS collaborate with the owner, engineer, shipbuilder and platform constructor. Our application engineers provide layout and system design assistance in the pre-FEED, FEED, and detail design stages, and they conduct complete pipe stress analysis on approved-for-construction isometrics. Prefabrication is done in our facility under controlled environments. Complete installation services are provided with our factory trained and ASME B31.3 qualified fabricators and installers. Our field technicians are onshore and offshore certified. The team is then mobilized to the location to facilitate all aspects of installation, including final certified hydrostatic test.
