Piping Products

DufLine Logo

Harrington is partnered with Duflon, the world’s leading manufacturer of Teflon (PTFE), Polypropylene (PP), and Polyvinylidene Flouride (PVDF) in the fabrication of our finished lined steel product Dufline. We manufacture our lined steel in Houston, Texas, with a second location coming online soon due to our continued growth. All products are made in compliance with ASTM F 1545, the standard specification for Plastic-Lined Ferrous Metal Piping.

Lined pipes and fittings are used in most Petrochemical, Chemical, Pulp and Paper Industry applications where hazardous acids and solvents are used in processing. Highly acidic and corrosive chemicals have a tendency to corrode and eat away non-lined steel piping. Lined piping systems are also used in the Food and Pharmaceutical Industry where the challenge is to maintain the highest levels of cleanability and durability.

The Strength of Steel
The corrosion resistance of plastics

Combining the strength of steel with the corrosion resistance of plastics, these plastic-lined steel products provide the best of both worlds. Due to the inertness of PTFE to almost all chemicals and solvents, it acts as an effective barrier between the chemical and steel, not only protecting the conveying system but also safeguarding the working environment. Corrosion engineers realize the long-term benefits associated with using high-performance fluoropolymers to prevent corrosion in process piping systems. Lined systems are abrasion and wear-resistant while maintaining non-stick and high purity characteristics.

A wide variety of chemicals can be used through a lined system, making it more versatile and economical for the long term. Due to the absence of corrosion, the life of the pipeline systems increases. PTFE lining safeguards and enhances better working conditions, reduces repair time, and minimizes maintenance costs. Harrington carries a full line of plastic-lined steel products available from 1″ to 12″ with PTFE, PP, PVDF or PFA liners and casing pipe of cast steel, stainless steel, or ductile iron.

Increased Lifespan with Enhanced Rust Protection

Harrington’s standard piping can be made up to 20’ lengths for 1-8” diameter pipe, and 10’ sections for 10-12” diameter pipe. The advantages of lined steel are increased lifespan along with enhanced rust protection, saving time and money from less downtime for maintenance and repairs, and a wide variety of chemicals that can be used through a Teflon lined system making it more flexible and economical. Some common applications are Bio-Pharm, Marine, Chemical Processing, Metal Finishing, Mining, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Power Plants, Refining, Wastewater, and Steel Pickling Plants.
