Watts distributes energy-efficient piping system

microflex
The Microflex preinsulated piping system can be used for hot and cold services.
Microflex preinsulated pipework is available in the UK through Watts Industries. It is composed of thermal insulation around carrier pipe(s) and covered by a double-skinned closed chamber jacket. These pipes can be used for distributing water for heating, cooling and hot and cold water supply services. Microflex is available in 100 m coils or cut to specific requirements. There can be one, two or four carrier pipes with diameters from 25 to 110 mm. It can be bent to tight radii. The Pex carrier pipe can be used with a wide range of liquids and has an oxygen-diffusion barrier to make it suitable for low-temperature heating applications. Temperature surges of up to 110°C can be withstood for short periods. Tests indicate a lifetime of over 50 years. Correctly supported, it can be used above ground
