BORODRAIN® Corrosion Resistance Borosilicate glass
BORODRAIN® is used as the material of choice in the chemical laboratory. Borosilicate glass remains today as the only material which is virtually impervious to all common chemicals and solvents at temperatures of 212°F and above.
Borodrain cannot burn. Therefore, it does not give off smoke or toxic vapor. It will not support combustion. It is the perfect material for safety-minded.
BORODRAIN® Thermal Properties
Thermal expansion is absolutely no problem when BORODRAIN ® glass is your material of construction. Expansion per 100ft line for example @150°F:
BORODRAIN® = 0.3″
Polypropylene = 6.0″
Industry standards rate acid drainline systems to operate at a maximum working pressure of 15 psig. There is a safety factor built into the system to insure a leak free system.
The light weight BORODRAIN® System means fewer hangers are required, at least 50% fewer than other acid waste piping.
Couplings, are easy to install, easy to test, and provide positive leak free seals. The BORODRAIN® couplings require no lubricant or sealant during installation.
Couplings are manufactured with an series 300 stainless outer shell, rubber non wetted compression sleeve which provides compression and memory to the inert PTFE wetted internal seal ring. The bead to bead design or bead to plain end allows for easy installation.
BORODRAIN® glass piping systems are only 15% of the weight of high silica iron, and due to its rigidity, even at higher temperatures, BORODRAIN® requires half of the piping hangers of other materials. This translates into less cost from a reduction in both labor and materials.
Manufactured from borosilicate glass, drawn into various tubing sizes, BORODRAIN® systems are impervious to most corrosive chemicals. In fact acids that can destroy plastics systems have virtually NO effect on the BORODRAIN® system.
BORODRAIN® being manufactured from borosilicate glass is transparent, which enables the owners to check for blockages and or potential line issues prior to a major maintenance issue.
No expansion joints are required, due to the low thermal expansion of BORODRAIN® piping. Combined with the compression couplings which offers various degrees of deflection, further eliminates the need to install expansion joints.
BORODRAIN® systems are designed to operate at a maximum working pressure of 15 psig, however, design pressures are higher. This safety factor will provide for years of reliable operation.
BORODRAIN® system is the results of many years of CHEM Flowtronics experience in glass process equipment for use in pharmaceutical, biotech and industrial applications.
The dedicated personnel of CHEM Flowtronics, some with over 40 years of experience, combined with international sourcing, presented our company with a unique opportunity to offer a competitively priced, technically sound acid drainline system for the world markets.
