Composite Fluid Transfer (CFT) was established to pursue a solution for Municipalities.
Our goal is to penetrate existing markets with a superior alternative to both the leak free fluid, slurry transfer systems and the conventional permanent water transfer installations. CFT can customize our products to meet your fluid transfer requirements.
The initial goal of CFT was to create the largest inside diameter pipe with a working pressure rating of 250 psi while keeping the weight low. We’ve far surpassed that now with ratings of 350 psi to 2000 psi.
The result, Fiberflex. FiberFlex is a cost-effective, patented, lighter weight pressure pipe. Our pipe can be installed with common fusion equipment at roughly half the installation time.
FiberFlex Benefits of Design
Increased working pressure vs. HDPE pipe
Increased install speed vs. welding steel or DR 7-15 HDPE
Reduction in pipe cost vs. steel and HDPE pipe
Reduced transportation cost
Reduction in weight leads to an easier installation
Number of Composite Wraps Vs. Burst Pressure
Thermoplastic Tape Wrapped Pipe
Flexibility can be maintained with low layers of tape wrapping
Thinner walls of extruded pipe to reach equal pressure to HDPE pipe
Slow Crack propagation properties of HDPE are maintained
Lowest cost alternative for pressure pipe applications
FiberFlex Value Proposition
Sustainable alternative; doing more with less (less materials, reduced weight and decreased install time )
Lower cost to manufacture
Reduced Installation costs
Lower overall cost of ownership
No other large diameter composite thermoplastic pipes in the market
Durable materials for harsh environments
Simplicity of choosing the right pipe product for the application, made from the right combination of fiber and thermoplastic resins for the job
FiberFlex-12 Cost Comparison
When a leak free, durable and more economical fluid transfer system is required, FiberFlex is the answer.
ASTM Standards: Tests were conducted according to ASTM standards D1599 and D2143.
FiberFlex surpasses the competition by its increased working pressure vs. HDPE pipe. CFT has conducted several pressure tests to understand how
the increase in composite layers translate to an increase of working pressure.
