  1. Dual Viscosity Loop
    We propose to provide all pipe, valves, and fittings for a standard two-viscosity corrugator loop around the corrugator. Construction is to be 2” sch. 40 galvanized pipe with standard 150# galvanized fittings (no long sweep elbows) and bronze ball valves. The loop is to be no more than 50 ft. from the starch storage tanks and no more than 275 ft. in total length one-way (starch room to farthest glue pan). This loop will have one leg dedicated to the single facers and another loop dedicated to the glue machine.Note: Loop insulation is not included.
