HDPE PIPES AND CONTAINMENT
HDPE PETROL PIPE Smartflow distributes and installs the KPS Petrol Pipe for all kinds of liquid petroleum products. These 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 Vapor 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 keeps fuel where it is supposed to be. KPS pipes are much easier, quicker, and cheaper to install Better Performing Equipment Due to the absence of Corrosion / Rust There are two variants of the KPS Petrol Pipe; Single Wall Petrol Pipes Double Wall Petrol Pipes Single Wall Petrol Pipes These 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 inches).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 These 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 inches).pipes suitable for fill lines at filling stations. Due to environmental demands and legislation, 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 The 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 years warranty on the pipe KPS provides a 10-year warranty for corrosion resistance of the LPG pipe. You cannot find this anywhere else and from any other LPG pipes. 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 easily into the trenches at the point of installation and afterward 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 costs are kept at a minimum with the LPG pipe. Since the estimated lifetime of the pipe is over 30 years, these pipes provide a 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 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 remain up to standard. Transition Fittings With the understanding that there will be a need to connect to other pipe materials and configurations, KPS has available several plastic-to-steel transition fittings. These fittings allow for the 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 has tees for collecting or dividing flow. These bends/elbows and tees guarantee the 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 does not enter into […]

Smartflow offers tank calibration and cleaning services for underground and aboveground tanks utilized in retail and commercial fuelling operations. In fuelling operations, particularly the receipts and storage of products otherwise referred to as custody transfer, up to 40% of product delivered is lost in situations wherein there is; No Calibration Wrong/Incorrect Calibration With the right calibrations, organisations and retail stations can block off up to 90% from their losses from delivery. Smartflow is highly experienced and competent in tank calibrations having spent adequate time, while applying and refining the right methods (API & DPR) for the calibration practice. Our calibrations come with high level accuracy that ensures that profits are retained and losses blocked off. In event of any non-conformity or issue, Smartflow’s calibrations come with a “Get-It-Right” guarantee which ensures that the calibration performed is correct and accurate. Calibrations are not only required when tanks are about to commence operations, but periodically, not longer than bi-annually, for tanks in operations. Periodic calibration is required as operational tanks would have undergone slight changes in position, orientation and form. Do you have a new fuel tank about to be put into operation or a tank in operation that you have not calibrated in a while? Let Smartflow calibrate your tank(s). TANK STRATIFICATION Storage tanks often require a high initial investment, and because they are fabricated with metal overtime become prone to corrosion, expansion and fracture. These tanks therefore require periodic maintenance to monitor corrosion trends and prevent product loss and resulting environmental pollution, thereby preserving the value of the investment. When Storage tanks become damaged or abandoned due to fractures and corrosion, fuel station owners/operators are often caught in an enigma considering the great cost to bear in either abandoning or replacing the damaged tank. Smartflow Tank Stratification Solution was developed as a result to address the key challenges to either abandoning or replacing a damaged storage tank by refurbishing it with coating tank internals with synthetic epoxy resins and fibre to; Seal noticed leakages in tank Remediate noticed corrosion in tanks Reinforce tank internals Proactively prevent further leakages and corrosion in tanks Transformation of the entire inner tank surface thereby achieving the highest standard of environmental safety. Tank Stratification prolongs the life span of the refurbished tank and is guaranteed to last for over 15years. The only downside is minimal – marginal reduction of volumetric space. Below are some of the benefits of our tank stratification service Extension of the lifetime and increase of the value of the asset. No system shutdown necessary, so that customers remain loyal during renovation. No excavations of tank required Complete metal corrosion protection. Total resistance to a wide range of chemicals A 10-year warranty on the tank transformation with possible extension.

Management of fuel stocks, with levels’ chart Management of different kinds of users (passengers, subcontractors, customers, etc.) Management of maintenance actions with automatic recall Management of anomalies with recording of maintenance history, stocks states, variations in fuel consumptions, electrical shut down, etc. Automatic Tank Gauge Systems Automatic Tank Gauging systems (ATG) are primarily used to determine the level of fluids (and possibly granular solids) contained within a tank. The ATG through the determined levels processes and delivers additional information such as volume, ullage, water level, high alarms, low alarms, reorder alarms, overfill alarms and so on. Our ATG systems are designed to make data accessible either onsite or remotely via the internet. How It Works The probes are installed in the tanks, reading the level of fluid in the tank and continuously computing the volume. This information is sent to the control panel. The control panel displays the levels and volumes in the tank locally/on site. This information is accessible through a clear user-friendly interface. Data is stored on a dedicated remote server. No IT infrastructure is required by the customer. The End user can also access the information by logging into the site. The End user can also get alert via emails or SMS on the levels/volumes of fluid in the tank per time. The most frequent level instrumentation task is level control and limit level switching whether if the measurement medium is liquid or solid. This is the reason why SMARTFLOW focuses on level switches in addition to the level transmitters. SMARTFLOW supplies the instruments that offer reliable level control and limit level switching solutions for most media from potable water to sewage, aggressive alkalis and acids, or free- flowing, powdered, bulk or granular solids. Thanks to this very wide level switch selection we are able to provide suitable instruments for most level instrumentation applications. Most of our level switches have explosion-proof versions (in accordance to ATEX and/or IEC Ex). Moreover we offer suitable solutions for special requirements, for example the ship-building industry with a need for Germanischer Lloyd (GL), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Bureau Veritas (BV) or SIL approvals.
