Piping System

This method is for fabricating a piping system. Such is corrosion proof and reduces fluid leaks and friction losses as well as to provide either heat dissipation or absorption or both as desired.

In piping acids or solvents, it is desirable to have a piping system that is corrosion resistant so as to prevent possible leaks which would endanger people working in the area. A metal piping system having a TEFLON* laminated interior surface permits the flow of corrosion type fluids through it.

The piping system is assembled by joining two metal mating halves each having a TEFLON laminated surface. One material which can be used to join together the laminated layers located on the inner surface portion of each metal half is F. E. P. TEFLON. This is a thermoplastic material having a melting temperature approximately 100 degrees F lower than T. F. E. type TEFLON. The latter material is substantially hole free and is preferably used as the laminated layer. *Trademark of E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co.
