100% corrosion resistant

Fields of application

×

Agriculture

Aquatherm is used in primary industry worldwide, used for general utility services such as cooling water, reverse osmosis/deionised water, compressed air, inert gases, glycol, and others.  In addition green is used for food grade requirements in agriculture plant processing.

Industrial Floor Heating

From single family residences to large scale projects, aquatherm’s piping systems can be used for heating and cooling distribution, geothermal applications, condenser water, and many other comfort related systems.

Compressed Air

PP-R is a corrosion-free, shatter-resistant material, making a great alternative for compressed air systems. A high-impact rating and a wide range of transition fittings make aquatherm piping systems safe and easy to install.

Whether it’s light or heavy industry, automotive, manufacturing, aviation, or any other compressed air application, aquatherm’s PP-R provides tangible advantages over traditional pipe systems, including excellent total installed costs and ease of maintenance.

 

Pure Water

Aquatherm PPR has been used for pure water, RO water and deionised systems installations since its introduction 40 years ago, being food grade plastic, inert, non-toxic or leaching with fusion welded connections aquatherm green has been a benchmark product in this sector. Recent use in the breweries, bottled water plants and distilleries has been a growth sector as well in this category.

Wall heating

For the next level of performance, aquatherm black system provides a grid based radiant solution that can be used in walls or ceilings.  Radiant panels deliver comfortable, energy efficient heating and cooling to the space, while using lower operating temperatures for easy integration with on site energy.

Underfloor heating

More than three decades experience in the production and application of underfloor heating systems as well as the continuous development to achieve energy saving and efficient technology, make aquatherm one of the most experienced and globally successful manufacturers of underfloor heating.

The performance of an underfloor heating system is mainly determined by the quality of the installed heating pipe. The aquatherm orange system underfloor heating pipe made of PE-RT is characterised by the following: excellent creep strength even at higher temperatures smooth inner pipe surface low friction loss, high heat stabilized, corrosion resistant, outstanding resistance to chemical, high flexibility, high impact rate, less sound of flow and Importantly oxygen-tight due to EVOH-coating to DIN 4726.

Swimming Pool Technology

Only impeccable water can guarantee public swimming pool operators the reliability they need to provide their guests with consistently good bathing. And only dependable heating ensures them of problem free, energy-efficient operation 52 weeks a year. Aquatherm green is one of the few plastic products that carries an ASTM appraisal for high Chlorine resistance.

aquatherm green and aquatherm blue pipe systems are delivering comprehensive and reliable functions for both water management and associated heating applications based on over 30 years of experience.

Sports Floor Heating & Cooling

From single family residences to large-scale sports floor projects, aquatherm’s piping systems can be used for heating and cooling distribution, geothermal applications, condenser water, and many other comfort-related systems. aquatherm provides a complete system from pipes to manifolds, cabinet’s pumps and essentially design support.

Ship Building

In this high-tech day and age, shipping is now faced by an additional major challenge: modern tourism. Today ships are frequently floating palaces, rightly called luxury liners, personal recreation yachts and motor yachts. aquatherm pipe systems are used on some of the largest and loveliest passenger ships all over the world, where their reliability, corrosion resistance, minimum weight and environment compatibility are key elements contributing to safety and maximum comfort in the sanitary amenities, air-conditioning and heating systems on board.

Rainwater Application

Water is a precious resource, and conservation is more important than ever. Our specialized products are a perfect fit for greywater applications.  Whether the system is for irrigation, cleaning/laundry, flushing or other related uses, aquatherm lilac is the answer. Since the goal of reclaimed systems is to protect the environment, specifying a long lasting pipe system that’s also one of the world’s most environmentally friendly options just makes sense.

Potable Water

Potable water systems are an important part of buildings and our everyday lives. Our systems are designed to be non-leaching, chemically pure, and highly resistant to corrosion.

PP-R is an ideal material for potable water because it doesn’t affect the water it carries. The heat fusion connections keep the system free of hazardous chemicals. Green pipe’s distinct colouring blocks sunlight from passing through the pipe wall and promoting biofilm formation, ensuring that drinking water is kept pure from the source to the destination.

Industrial Floor Cooling

From single family residences to large scale projects, Aquatherm’s piping systems can be used for heating and cooling distribution, geothermal applications, condenser water, and many other comfort related systems.

Geothermal and Heating Systems

From single family residences to large scale projects, aquatherm’s piping systems can be used for heating and cooling distribution, geothermal applications, condenser water, in ground district systems and many other comfort related systems.

 

Fire Protection Sprinkler Systems

Fire protection systems are critical for protecting costly investments and preventing loss of life, and our systems can provide valuable peace of mind.

While other materials can corrode and weaken over time, PP-R is always ready when you need it the most. aquatherm red pipe is specially formulated for fire protection systems in concealed light-hazard applications. For multi-purpose systems, aquatherm green pipe can be integrated with the potable water system to provide fire protection. In both systems, the high flow rates allow for mains and branches to be run through the building rather than many individual pipes, keeping the system simple and efficient. External fittings do not restrict flow throughout the system, and fusion outlets allow for a fast, flexible, and reliable installation.

Unlike many other plastic materials, polypropylene is completely non-toxic, even under full combustion, eliminating the threat of dangers smoke and fumes. And the heat-fused connections won’t leak or blow apart, protecting the building from water damage and flooding. Using aquatherm red pipe makes the systems we all count on to keep us safe even safer.

Green can be utilised in accordance with the domestic sprinkler code and combined with the potable water installation.

Heating Systems

Aquatherm has been used in this sector for both for above and below ground heating applications for over 40 years, heating systems in Europe are an essential requirement for significant periods of the year, aquatherm PPR has reduced scaling, corrosion free application with no oxygen transfer, excellent flow rates and thermal advantages. Its fusion welded connections are leak fee for the entire life time installation.

Chilled Water Technology

aquatherm is an ideal chilled water pipe system material provider for above and below ground installations. Used internationally for over 40 years aquatherm PPR covers dimensions from 20mm to 600mm for a complete corrosion free application with no oxygen transfer, excellent flow rates, no scaling  and thermal advantages for a lifetime installation.
