Products for the Steel Market

We have an extensive portfolio of products, and we provide the expertise you need to determine the most cost-effective solution for the long-term life of the mill. Some of the products that work well in these challenging steel mill applications include:

  • Conley Composites FRP Piping & Fittings: These fiberglass piping products are extremely corrosion resistant, have high tensile strength, are very lightweight, non-conductive, have first-rate insulating properties and are incredibly durable. They are available in continuous cast and filament wound versions.
  • Durcor® Engineered Structural Composite Piping & Fittings: The thick wall fluoropolymer liner provides maximum internal chemical resistance while the vinyl ester resin backbone eliminates the potential effects of external environmental corrosion. With mechanical properties similar to lined metal products, these advanced composite fluoropolymer-lined piping systems have zero metallic corrosion and are lighter in weight.
  • Endurance™ Composites FRP and Dual Laminate Tanks and Piping & Fittings: Offering a hybrid system made of specialized thermoplastic liner inside and fiberglass (FRP/GRP) structure outside. Multiple options and fittings available
  • Nil-Cor® Composite Valves: Lightweight valves with extensive resin and reinforcement choices. Types of valves include ball, butterfly, check valves, automated on/off valves and control valves
  • PureFlex® Hoses: Endless options for high-performance fluoropolymer-lined, corrosion resistant hoses and fittings
  • RamParts® Pumps: Heavy duty horizontal single diaphragm pump designed to reliably stand up to the most corrosive and abrasive liquids. With dual air assist for the driest slurry cake on plate and frame filter presses, longest life, and lowest maintenance cost available
  • ChemTite® Ethylene™ Lined Steel: The first and highest quality fluoropolymer lined steel piping system on the market. Our portfolio includes valves, expansion joints, piping & fittings, and accessories


The integration of durable, high-performance fluid processing systems will be key to mitigating corrosion, downtime, and maintenance costs.  At Andronaco, we believe leveraging our total systems approach with composites in steel mills can elevate steel mills to a more profitable position. 

Advanced Fluid Management Control Solutions

Steel production is critical for our everyday lives and industrial infrastructure.  Steel mills must have low maintenance equipment to keep costs down and run time high to be profitable.  When we think of steel mills, we think of slurry management and pickling processes because of the maintenance intensity each process can incur.  Pickling is the process of removing surface impurities from the surface of steel using strong acid mixtures.

Focused on performance, safety, and dependability, Andronaco offers corrosion-resistant fluoropolymer lined steel and composite fluid processing managment system products. Contact us to speak with our sales team to learn more about specific solutions for the steel mills.
