  • General Construction

HDPE PETROL PIPE

Smartflow distributes and installs the KPS Petrol Pipe for all kinds of liquid petroleum products. This flexible plastic pipes are the most advanced and installer friendly piping system available for use on filling stations and allied fuelling locations. These pipes can serve for any of the following uses;

  • Product Transfer
  • Remote fill
  • Pressure and Suction Lines
  • Ventilation
  • Conduits
  • Vapour Recovery

In addition to their large spectrum of usage, they have the following advantages over other plastic and metal piping systems;

  • Up to 30 years warranty for all pipe products
  • It is a much safer product as it has conductive (dissipative) lines that prevent static electricity build-up. Electrostatic build-up can cause fire, and subsequently explosions on the forecourt.  With KPS pipes, this risk is ZERO!
  • With zero permeation of hydrocarbons KPS piping keep fuel where it is supposed to be.
  • KPS pipes are much easier, quicker and cheaper to install
  • Better Performing Equipment Due to absence of Corrosion / Rust

There are two variants of the KPS Petrol Pipe;

  1. Single Wall Petrol Pipes
  2. Double Wall Petrol Pipes

Single Wall Petrol Pipes

Single-Wall-Petrol-PipeThese are single pipes that come in small to medium dimensions suitable for all forms of station piping requirements, for sizes up to 110 mm (4 inch).pipes suitable for fill lines at filling stations.

The single wall notwithstanding, these pipes have a highly reliable and effective permeation barrier that keeps fuel from diffusing through the pipe wall making permeation basically non-existent. These pipes also required conductive lining to prevent static build up thus guaranteeing a basic but important safety requirement.

The single wall pipe has requisite approvals in place.

Double Wall Petrol Pipes

PETROL-PIPE-DDDue to environmental demands and legislations, the double wall pipe system was designed and introduced.

In the double wall pipe system, the primary, inner pipe is the same high class pipe as for single wall solutions, surrounded by a slightly bigger secondary pipe. Thus the space between the pipes can be monitored to make sure no leaks occur from the primary pipe.

The double wall system from OPW/KPS is the market leader and meets any such requirement as desired by a user.

LPG PIPES

LPG PIPEThe growing use of LPG, or Liquefied Petroleum Gas, necessitated the development and deployment of LPG plastic pipe. KPS in driving the market, introduced the world’s first plastic LPG pipe system.

The KPS LPG pipe is made of high density polyethylene or HDPE, and designed for the high pressures used in LPG distribution.

It was designed to handle pressures up to 25 bars and was actually loaded under test conditions to 40 bars. This LPG pipe meets the high standards of safety in the LPG industry.

It has a permeation barrier and a conductive plastic liner, and this ensures that there will be no permeation of the hydrocarbons, and that static electricity can dissipate safely.

The advantages of the LPG pipe from KPS are;

  • No corrosion.Unlike steel pipes that may corrode both inside and outside, the KPS LPG pipe does not corrode thus does not release harmful particles into dispensing equipment or leak into the soil or atmosphere.
  • 10 year warranty on the pipe.KPS provides a 10 year warranty for corrosion resistance of the LPG pipe. You cannot find this anywhere else from any other o other LPG pipe.
  • Quick and easy installation. Despite the pipes’ innate strength, toughness and rugged performance, it is a semi flexible plastic pipe, which can be rolled out easilyinto the trenches at point of installation and afterwards connect to tank and dispensers. The pipe can be bent on site and guarantees that no arc welding or complicated installation procedures are needed.
    Installation can be completed in less than one day!!!!
  • Lower cost and higher return on investment. Product and installation cost are kept at a minimum with the LPG pipe. Since the estimated life time of the pipe is over 30 years, these pipes provide lower total cost of ownership and higher return on investment than any other LPG pipe on the market.

Smartflow supplies and utilizes quality KPS fittings as joints and connections in our highly reliable flexible plastic pipe system. These fittings maintain and retain the benefits from the pipe system, while ensuring connection/entry to various openings.

The available fittings include;

  • Welding Sockets
  • Bends & Tees
  • Transition Fittings
  • Entry Seals

Welding Sockets

sockets

KPS welding sockets are high quality, top of the range fittings that are easy to use, while providing compact installation solutions. There are sockets for both single wall and double wall pipe systems with installation for both being done in a single run.

The welding sockets are continuously tested and loaded under pressure in conjunction with pipes to guarantee their performance and strength remains up to standard.

Transition Fittings

fittings-3

With the understanding that there will be need to connect to other pipe materials and configuration, KPS has available several plastic-to-steel transition fittings. These fittings allow for safe connection of the pipes to tank manhole covers, dispensers, ventilation stacks and fill points.

The transition fittings range includes special flanges, threaded plastic/steel fittings, DIN flanges with plastic stub flanges and various types of compression fittings. This ensures that the right solution to particular local needs and standards on sites and by installers are found and met.

 

Bends and tees

Although KPS pipes are flexible and can create field bends on their own, KPS has specialist bends to be used in tight spaces. KPS also have tees for collecting or dividing flow.

These bends/elbows and tees for guarantee same compactness, superior flow and zero permeation as the KPS pipes.

Entry Seals

Given the need to ensure and guarantee tightness and snug-fits at pipe entry points into tank chambers, underground fill boxes or dispenser chambers, KPS/OPW developed and manufactures entry seals. These seals ensure that water do not enter into these chambers elongating the life time of steel fittings and making inspection and maintenance easy.

This range of entry seals can be utilized in both even and uneven chamber walls. KPS seals can also be used for electrical cables and ducts!
