Do You Know How Much is the Maximum Flow Velocity in a GRP Pipe?

The generally accepted economic flow velocity for water supply pipelines is in the range of 1–3,5 m/s. The maximum recommended flow velocity for a GRP pipe is 5-6 m/s.

Of course, depending on the conditions as velocity profiles, misaligned joints, type of vortices at fittings, type joints, special liners, etc.) velocities a little bit higher than 6 m/s can be used, if the water is clean and contains no abrasive material.

Did you check the flow velocity in your project?

In our world, there are no misfortunes, but latent dangers that must be found and resolved before it is too late.
