Flexenergy offsite pipework proves its worth

Published:  06 February, 2018

Flexenergy

Flexenergy specialises in the supply and fabrication of pre-insulated pipe for heating, hot water and cooling systems. Their pipework was recently used in the scheduled replacement of a heating system integral to natural gas offtake in Wales. The off-site prefabrication approach assisted in significant cost-reductions on the project.

Flexenergy was called in by contractors Fowler Gas technical, onsite support and assistance in replacing the heating main at Wales & West Utilities’ North Wales natural gas offtake in Wrexham. The use of heat exchangers warms the natural gas as it reaches the offtake so it can be effectively odourised and distributed to heat homes and power businesses right across North Wales.

The four heat exchangers on site needed to be served with a flow and return on each side of the exchanger to allow for balancing and Flexenergy’s Flexalen 600 pre-insulated pipe was selected for its thermal properties, eco credentials and jointing integrity.
