aquatechnik: the unique polymer pipe system soon to arrive in Australia
Italian polymer piping system manufacturer aquatechnik has announced the arrival of its internationally proven safety® piping and fittings system into Australia.
aquatechnik produces innovative products for the plumbing and heating industry, and its safety system is the first and only system in the world that completely avoids brass and metal ions coming into direct contact with water.
The system features multi-calor pipe and safety fittings. The pipe is made from cross-linked polyethylene internal and external layers, with an aluminium layer in between. Unlike most multi-layer pipes, multi-calor’s aluminium layer is TIG butt welded (using a control camera) rather than lap jointed. The layers are then bonded using an adhesive compound designed to withstand the pipe enlargement process during joint assembly.
The jointing process is incredibly simple and involves a one-step enlargement of the pipe head which ensures that the internal diameter of the pipe matches the internal diameter of the fittings. This maintains optimum flow by decreasing pressure drops and friction losses. The safety fittings are also completely reusable.
The safety system is designed for potable hot and cold water, compressed air, HVAC, industrial, marine and agricultural use, with sizes from DN16 to DN63, and is assembled using affordable patented tooling. The system is also available direct from aquatechnik Australia, which cuts out the middle man and saves you money.
