Contained Pipe Systems

This “pipe in pipe” system comprises an outer containment pipe and an inner carrier pipe conveying the fluid.

The inner pipe is usually located concentric to the outer pipe by means of spacers or “spiders” and the system is generally used in applications to give greater protection and peace of mind when transporting aggressive or hazardous liquids. The annulus or void between the two pipes can be monitored and used to detect any leakage from the inner carrier pipe.

There are various types of leak monitoring and detection equipment available dependant on the usage, medium and application but all systems basically provide the user with an early warning system for remedial action against a potential hazard. AIS Pipework are able to fabricate these pipe at their workshops around the country along with the fabricated fittings with the advantage to be able to respond quickly to both clients and site requirements.
