Polyurethane has long proved its worth as an effective insulating agent, and building boards made of synthetic raw materials, designed for wall and floor insulation, are a vivid example of this. But this extremely useful substance has one more purpose — it is an entry into the insulating system of plumbing and heating communications. A pipe with such provision practically does not add on weight, but is much better protected than products with a fibrous winding. Thanks to polyurethane, heat losses in pipelines are reduced several times, which immediately affects the cost items.
PPU pipes are ready for installation upon completion of production
Unlike a pipe “semi-finished product” that does not have an insulating coating, PPU products are immediately ready for installation without additional measures designed to reduce the thermal conductivity characteristics. That is why companies involved in the following industries prefer to work with them:
- public water supply and heating;
- heat network supply of underground and ground type;
- transportation of gas, oil and other reactive products;
- equipping enterprises with outlets and drains.
Before you buy polyurethane pipes, you need to familiarize yourself with the engineering project, which will include not only working, but also auxiliary elements, as well as the necessary fittings protected by polyurethane insulation.
Why is isolation so effective?
The pipe, like any metal body, is subject to corrosion, and the synthetic material, sweaty adjacent to the steel surface, is able to prevent the destructive process. This significantly increases the service life of rolled products, making it virtually invulnerable to soil moisture and precipitation. Resistance to external manifestations adds a finishing layer, which is made of galvanized or dense polyethylene film. It turns out a unique design, where the pipe receives several levels of protection.
Experts call the insulating shell “shell”, which can be in the form of cylinders or its halves. Rigid “shell” allows you to avoid the complex procedure of deposition of insulating layers, which lead to an increase in the cost of the product. As you can see, PPU pipes are not only effective heat saving and low wear, but also significant cost savings, as well as quick assembly of elements into a communication system.
