GF Piping Systems has launched a new marine drainage pipe system offering the marine industry a paint-free, corrosion-free drainage solution.
SeaDrain White marine drainage pipe system for black and grey water drainage is made of polypropylene plastic making it an eco-friendly alternative to metals and it is suitable for cruise ships, passenger ferries, and luxury yacht installations, in both new-build and retrofit construction.
“SeaDrain White is the first purpose-built thermoplastic piping system specifically engineered for marine drainage applications,” said Roberto Chiesa, global business development manager – marine. “With applications from service lockers, open decks, balconies, class A0 and class A60 fire-protected decks, to customer-facing areas, you can see the difference throughout its lifetime versus metal.”
SeaDrain White reduces the risk of bacterial contamination of the ship with factory tests over 100 psi (6 bar) conducted. The ultra-smooth inner surface of SeaDrain White reduces encrustation and the push-fit and lock mechanism of the SeaDrain Fast-Lock jointing system makes installation up to five times faster than alternative metal solutions.
Made entirely from a UV-resistant, non-corroding thermoplastic, SeaDrain White is installed on line sizes 4″ (DN100) and below with a single tool. Automated electrofusion is available in all sized 1½” (DN40) to 6″ (DN150).
