Pipe system made of polypropylene
aquatherm’s green pipe has proved its technical suitability worldwide for 25 years and is recognised as an optimal solution for that most demanding of applications: potable water systems.
The green pipe system offers five different types of pipe – from cold water [ipes to patented fibre-composite, with outside diameter from 16mm to 450mm. In addition, over 450 joining and connection fittings are available.
All aquatherm green pipes are WRAS approved and have passed the stringent 40/20 testing requirements which confirms it will not leach contaminants into water like lead, copper and galvanised steel can. Like all aquatherm pipes, aquatherm green is PVC-free, free from health hazardous heavy metals and is recyclable.
The aquatherm green system is suitable for pipe networks including those for:
- Potable water applications
- Cold and hot water installations (residential and commercial buildings)
- DHW potable system manifolds, risers, end of line hot water requirements
- Pipe networks in agriculture and horticulture
- Pipe networks for industry (including aggressive fluids)
- Compressed air systems
- Chemical transport
New aquatherm SDR 9 PP-RP MF green pipe
aquatherm is proud to announce the launch of their SDR 9 PP-RP MF pipe, an aquatherm green product for domestic hot water systems.
SDR 9 PP-RP MF has a 14 per cent larger internal bore than aquatherm’s standard SDR 7.4 MF pipes, is 16 per cent lighter in weight and has improved pressure ratings of almost 25% in the higher temperature range.
The pipe is made from reinforced fusiolen PP-RP material, a PP-RCT classified product and one of the longest lasting and most chemically inert piping materials in the world. This means the pressure rating of the pipe can also be increased.
All aquatherm green fittings are compatible with fusiolen-based pipes, so welding work is identical to welding standard pipes and fittings.
SDR 9 PP-RP MF will be included in aquatherm’s green/lilac BRANZ appraisal, as well as aquatherm’s Watermark listing.
