If it isn’t perfect, it isn’t good enough. Brugg Pipesystems is using a new screw connection technology for its CALPEX low temperature system to ensure additional safety in the building.
The operating safety and dependability of heat transfer systems depends to a great extent on the quality and reliability of the connections. Brugg Pipesystems pays a tremendous amount of attention to the connection technology and is always busy improving the systems in this area also.
Great potential for optimizing the connections
The connection technology market offers the safest and simplest solutions for the fittings used in above-ground applications of the building infeed of the CALPEX district heating pipes. The components, which are undergoing constant evolution, can absorb the mechanically or thermally originating pull-out forces to the greatest extent, i.e. up to the yield strength of the medium pipes.
No retightening after installation
The new screw fittings absorb pull-out forces easily, increasing safety considerably. An additional advantage is that the fittings do not have to be retightened after the district heating system is commissioned, because the press-fitting clip compresses the medium pipe reliably with a positive fit. The connection is secure and the mechanical and thermal plastic deformation of the plastic pipe is entirely compensated for.
Full product line for all CALPEX pipes
In addition to the fast installation without special tools or redundant work steps, other outstanding features of the new screw fittings are the omission of sealing rings, the highly resistant materials and the reasonable prices. They are available for all diameters of the CALPEX remote heat pipe system.
A new supplier for safe and reliable fitting solutions
Brugg Pipesystems has entered into a new supply partnership with a technology company specializing in producing high-quality pipe connection technology. This gives Brugg the ability to install the CALPEX system quickly and easily without special tools and allows Brugg to offer a wide and deep selection of fittings. These fittings have been tested in accordance with the valid EN 15875 standard and are entirely compliant with standards required by Brugg Pipesystems with regard to function, reliability and service life.
