All-in-one chilled-water pipework system

George Fischer, chilled water,  pipework, Cool-Fit

George Fischer’s (GF) Cool-Fit 2.0 insulated pipework for chilled water and other low-temperature liquids is a three-in-one system that offers speed and versatility for installation. Pipes range from 32 to 140 mm in diameter and are tested to 16 bar. It is a plastics-based system that weighs as little as a sixth of metal alternatives.

The carrier pipe is made from industrial-grade polyethylene to provide strength at low temperatures.

Al components are factory insulated with GF’s high-efficiency closed-cell insulation with a thermal conductivity of 0.022 W/mK.

The outer sheathing is of black, high-density polyethylene or stainless steel.

This combination provides good load-carrying strength, UV resistance and durability — as well as combating condensation and mould growth.

Cool-Fit 2.0 can carry liquids at temperatures from 0 to 60°C.

The system is installed using GF’s proven electro-fusion welding process, which has a completion indicator for fail-safe reliability.

The comprehensive range of accessories includes tees, elbows, sockets, connection hoses, adaptors, reducers and other transition fittings. There is also a wide selection of insulated valves.
