Asahi Chem ProlokAsahi/America introduces its Chem Prolok™ thermoplastic double-wall piping systems to help meet EPA requirements for underground chemical transfer. According to the company, these pipes also provide:

  • The ability to safely convey liquid chemicals with a pH range from 1 to 14.
  • Suitability for water and wastewater treatment chemical feed systems, acids, caustics, sodium hypochlorite, mixed chemicals, compressed gasses and process piping, pressure or drainage.
  • The power to be primarily joined using simultaneous butt fusion, which provides the highest joint integrity known in thermoplastic piping systems, to avoid risky mechanical joints.
  • Construction from the highest stress crack-resistant PE resin.
  • Pipe and fitting sizes from 1 by 3 inches through 12 by 16 inches.
  • Broad chemical and ultraviolet resistance, a low installation cost and safe long-term, maintenance-free service.
  • Installation with either low point or continuous cable leak detection systems to comply with local environmental or safety regulations.
  • Accommodations for both above and in-ground applications.
  • No need for special backfill in a buried service, saving time and resources.
  • Certification by NSF to NSF/ANSI 61-G to be safe for drinking water.
