We have unmatched design intelligence that can provide product development and support. At Beetle Composites we can create new products as well as assist you with incremental improvements. Key product features such as corrosion resistance, slip resistance, UV resistance, flame retardance, nonconductive, impact absorption, and low maintenance requirements make these products ideal for use in all types of water and wastewater facilities.
We offer great products that perform well in waste water environments. Our composites are lightweight, high strength, corrosion/rot resistant, will not swell, or take on moisture, and can be retrofitted to existing municipal and industrial water and wastewater systems.
THE FRP ADVANTAGE
FRP has a distinct advantage over metal alloys, such as titanium, and rubber-lined steel with lower installation costs, reduced maintenance, and long service life proven—with over 20 yrs of successful operating experience at many plants/facilities around the world. More importantly, FRP is recognized as having superior corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance when compared to specialty alloy metals, in stringent chemical processing environments.
Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) are widely used in the waste water industry because of their reliability, corrosion and abrasion resistance, affordability, and design flexibility, but the market needs are extremely diverse.
FRP pipe is the best choice for many water supply and wastewater applications and can save the customer money in long-term maintenance and pump operating costs due to corrosion related friction loss.
WASTE WATER USES AND APPLICATIONS
In the waste water industry, FRP are typically used for clarifiers, basins, tanks, reservoirs, filters(e.g. trickling, roughing, bio), scum baffles, weirs, flumes (e.g. Cutthroat, Parshall, Palmer-Bowlus), influent/effluent channels, gates, stop logs, skimmers and manholes, filter media support grids, elevated platforms and walkways, odor covers, trench and vault covers —among much else.
Typical applications include, but are not limited to, industrial and municipal waste water supply, ferric chloride, hydrogen sulfide, acid waste neutralization, sludge water, desalinization, seawater intakes, corrosive water, and waste water transportation.
FRP provides excellent resistance to the effects of seawater, and waste water containing acids, alkalis and other corrosive compounds. Beetle Composites can custom design pipe, tanks, vessels, and more to suit your waste water needs.
