Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. Authors Juan L. Holtzclaw Holtec Ltd. Industry has recognized this document as a useful reference for the procurement of fiberglass reinforced plastic FRP equipment. However, the misconception that by specifying "to be built in accordance with" will automatically yield a better product has caused some users to be disappointed after they take delivery of their equipment.
This paper will attempt to clarify some of the major differences in "built in accordance with" vs. The Document consists of several sections that thoroughly cover the steps by which FRP or RTP equipment can be designed, fabricated and tested.
In recent months, many fabricators, and end users have come to realize that this document which was intended to provide top quality equipment is being used as a reference for design or laminate quality, without regard to the other sections which cover workmanship, inspection, material verification and testing.
Most of the successful FRP applications can be attributed to good specifications, good design, appropriate material selection, good fabrication, inspection and proper use within the limitations of the materials. It is important to realize that with the variety of resins, veils, catalyst systems, structural reinforcing materials and fabricating techniques, the FRP material can be a complicated system.
Resin manufacturers, fabricators and consultants can provide a variety of choices to solve corrosion problems. Choosing the right resin is not enough to arrive at a complete corrosion resistant material. Sometimes the catalyst system and the veil material will produce a completely different product. The same goes for the appropriate physical and mechanical properties for the different manufacturing techniques. The best fabrication in the market must be complimented by proper design using the appropriate physical properties.
Inspection of the equipment is also a vital part of the process and must be performed by personnel that have experience in design, fabrication and quality of the materials. Choosing the wrong fabricator can be as detrimental as making the wrong choice on material, less than desired quality, or design. It is important to note that fabricators have different capabilities. The biggest task for the user is to become familiar enough to realize that a pipe fabricator may not build a vessel as economically as one who is in the business of making vessels.
At the same time, a vessel fabricator may not build pipe as economically as a pipe fabricator. Defining everything from material selection, fabrication, quality, design, inspection and specification is left as the responsibility of the user. Other Resources.
