Specialized Abrasion and Corrosion Resistant Piping

Kenway believes that every piping system should be engineered and manufactured for its specific application. We work with our customers to identify the critical design issues in their system. Then, we custom fabricate pipe and components accordingly as part of our process piping design approach. Depending on the application we select from a variety of premium vinyl ester resins. We utilize the hand lay-up process for corrosion barriers and either hand lay-up or filament winding for structural manufacturing. Additionally, our team designs using various surfacing veils, chopped strand mats, woven roving, and unidirectional reinforcements. Kenway works to create solutions for a variety of applications. An example is specialized corrosion resistant barriers for an aggressive chemical application (e.g., chlorine dioxide) in the pulp and paper industry. Another example would be proprietary abrasion-resistant liners for flue gas desulfurization in the power industry.
