Automation made easy - August 2015

23/02/2016

Our automation loop consists of three elements: measurement, control actuation. Measurement encompasses a wide range of measurement technologies and parameters. Most of these products are available in plastic and are offered with dedicated fittings, which integrate our sensors perfectly into your piping system. Control comprises various control functionalities (from simple relays to PID controllers) and all major communication technologies. Actuation includes pneumatic, electric and magnetic actuators, which can be seamlessly combined with all kinds of valves accessories.

  • Easy-to-combine Flexible combination and upgrade 
  • Easy-to-install Seamless integration
  • Easy-to-connect State-of-the-art communication technology
  • Easy-to-set-up Plug-and-play design
  • Easy-to-operate Intuitive menu structure

Measurement - Accurate measurement is the basis for reliable process control - November 2015

23/02/2016

Our measurement offering will cover your needs: flow, pH, conductivity, level, temperature and various water quality parameters. Corresponding to our piping systems, most sensors are available in plastic and are therefore highly resistant to chemicals. Our plug-and-play measurement products are self explanatory, easy to maintain and are offered with suitable installation fittings.

  • Flow Sensors and instruments for mechanical, magnetic, sonic or visual measurement of flow
  • Chlorine Chlorine analysing systems designed to accurately measure free chlorine, in applications with varying pH levels
  • pH/ORP Sensors and instruments for measurement of pH/ORP also for aggressive media and removal without process shutdown
  • Level Sensors and instruments for measurement of level using ultrasonic and hydrostatic pressure

Introducing BIM for GF products - February 2016

23/02/2016

Building Information Modelling (BIM). Models for GF product ranges are now available to download via our website.

What is BIM?
Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a process to design, create and maintain a project through its lifetime with the use of an intelligent 3D model. BIM is about everyone in a project understanding the building through the use of a digital model. BIM contributes to structured project information, improved integration, reducing costs, reduced waste and faster construction times.

Why BIM?
In May 2011, the UK Government announced in the Construction Strategy the requirement of collaborative 3D BIM to be used on projects by 2016. The main target is to reduce "the capital cost and the carbon burden from the construction and operation of the built environment by 20%".

ELGEF Plus Electrofusion Couplers - Designed for BIG ideas - September 2015

23/02/2016

The reinvention of large electrofusion couplers for quick and reliable connections.
Constructing large dimension pipelines is challenging and requires  specific designs of the pipeline components. The GF Piping Systems electrofusion couplers for water and gas applications are therefore made for quick and reliable connection of your pipes and spigot fittings. Even under difficult site conditions the electrofusion couplers from GF Piping Systems provide a long lasting and safe connection thanks to the careful design.

Proven technologies
The electrofusion coupler product range of d355-d1200mm consists of two production technologies.  Couplers with flex groove design (d-900 - d1200mm) ensuring a good jointing thanks to the special geometry and wall thickness. 
Dimensions from d355 to d800mm are provided with the proven technology of active reinforcement (pipe in pipe).
