Design Analysis of FRP Piping for a Flue Gas Desulfurization System

Desulfurization System

A supplier of large diameter Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) abrasion-resistant piping contacted O’Donnell Consulting as its product was being installed for use in the external Limestone Slurry Recycle segments of a Flue Gas Desulfurization System in a power plant in Omon, Vietnam. Desulfurization system piping is subject to thermal and pressure loadings, as well as self-weight, contained fluid weight, operational forces, wind loads and potentially seismic events.

To confirm the structural integrity of the design for these loadings, the supplier requested a design evaluation according to Specification.
