When designing a hydraulic installation, it is essential to define the best type of joint system to meet the requirements of the project in question.

With that in mind, PROTESA offers a wide range of joint systems for its GRP pipes, all of which are completely watertight and, at the least, equally as capable of withstanding the forces derived from the PN (nominal pressure) of the installation as the sections of piping that they are designed to join.

as the sections of piping that they are designed to join. The Bell & Spigot joint
as the sections of piping that they are designed to join. The Bell & Spigot joint

The Bell & Spigot joint comes with two EPDM O-rings and includes a check valve, by means of which the cavity between the two O-rings is pressurized, enabling the watertightness of the joint to be checked quickly and easily, on site, pipe by pipe, once each joint has been assembled and before moving on to the next one. The correct assembly of each joint can thus be confirmed, guaranteeing the success of the subsequent hydraulic pressure test.

material and technology

Crossed Filament Winding

PROTESA continues to work with the same initial desire to provide innovative, scientific answers to all issues relating to its GRP pipes, which, due to their manufacturing process, are technically quite different from the rest of the pipes available on the market.

PROTESA’s GRP pipes are manufactured by means of the Crossed Filament Winding process, which consists of creating layers of glass fiber (direct roving) and thermosetting resin. Once the composite has polymerized and the work on the pipe itself is finished, the mold is extracted, leaving the pipe to be machined as necessary.

PROTESA has 3 production lines with the capacity to supply large quantities of various different diameters of piping at the same time.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Polyester (GRP) is

a material made up of different types of

polyester resin (as a binder or matrix) and a glass fiber reinforcement.

The resulting product has great mechanical

properties, even at high temperatures, and

is lightweight, with great chemical corrosion

resistance. The resin can also be easily additivated with other components, in order to modify the mechanical, electrical or chemical properties.
