Durapipe develops pipe system for chilled water and cold water

Published:  17 March, 2007

Specifically developed as alternative to steel for chilled water and boosted cold water, Durapipe’s SuperFlo integrated systems of pipes, fittings and valves.

Durapipe has developed an integrated system of plastics pipes, fittings and valves for chilled-water and boosted-cold-water applications.

At only a sixth the weight of steel, SuperFlo is significantly easier to handle on site. Joints are made quickly using a white solvent cement. Confirmation that joints are complete is indicated by a white ring of solvent showing up against the grey of the pipe — rather like solder-ring fittings for copper pipe.

Markings on pipes and the comprehensive range of fittings and accessories enable perfect 90 or 180° location of fittings. Pipes are available in lengths of 3 and 6 m in sizes from 16 to 315 mm.

Martyn Rowlands of Durapipe, says, ‘SuperFlo has been developed with customers in mind. Chilled and boosted-cold-water applications amount to a large proportion of the building-services market, and we wanted to develop a system specifically designed to meet these requirements.’
