Plastic pipework benefits chilled-water air conditioning for Audi showroom

The Durapipe SuperFLO pipework system was specified for a new air-conditioning system for this Audi showroom in Manchester.

Durapipe’s SuperFLO pipework system has reduced installation time for chilled-water circuits in a new air-conditioning system at Audi’s car showroom in Manchester.

150 m of 90 mm SuperFLO was installed as part of the refurbishment of the Audi Centre in Old Trafford, which includes a used-car showroom for 18 cars and the expansion for the after-sales room.

Mick Midgley, director with Brava Building Services, contractor for the installation, says, ‘Durapipe SuperFLO is very easy to work with. The fast solvent-weld jointing procedure facilitates quick and easy installation, which reduces time on site and has obvious associated costs savings.

Andy Lever, national sales manager for Durapipe UK, says, ‘The water in this system will be at around 6 or 7°C. Durapipe SuperFLO is perfect for this application as it can provide a safety net of -40°C to accommodate any possible drops in temperature.

‘With these low temperatures, some alternative pipework systems can become brittle if they happen to freeze, but not SuperFLO. It can stand incredibly low temperatures, which meant it was the best option for this job.

SuperFLO is a complete pipework system for chilled and boosted cold-water applications.
