AQUAFLOW SYSTEMS

Aquaflow Enterprises introduces a cost effective pipe systems, AQUAFLOW PRR PIPES & FITTINGS in both momo-layer PPR pipes for hygienic transport of hot and cold fluids Our state of art manufacturing facility at Chennai, Tamil Nadu enables us to manufacture a cold complete range of polypropylene Random Copolymer pipes and fittings for hot and cold water distribution systems. AQUAFLOW PPR pipes and fittings are suitable for potable water distribution system in addition to a wide range of hydro sanitary applications. The Exceptional heat stability of AQUAFLOW PPR pipes and its extraction resistance coupled with ease of installation makes our PPR pipe system reliable for hot and cold water applications with a service life of 50 years and beyond. AQUAFLOW PPR pipes and fittings are made of High Molecular Weight Polypropylene Random Copolymer suitably stabilized for high temperature applications especially with high environmental stress cracking resistence that enables long service life. AQUAFLOW PPR pipes and fittings are manufactured in accordance with German DIN Standards, the raw materials used are Koylene AER003N.

PROPERTIES OF AQUAFLOW PPRC PIPE SYSTEMS

Potability

AQUQFLOW PPRC pipe system is in full compliance with the international standards on the use of plastic materials for transportation of potable water.

Welding Capacity

This is a fundamental characteristic of the AQUAFLOW PPRC pipe system. It enables all the elements in the system to be joined by polyfusion welding.

Versatility

The low specific weight means ease of transport and handling. AQUAFLOW PPRC systems can be used in traditional site installations, for the preparation of prefabricated constructions and in the creation of modules or fitted walls.

Head Loss

The internal surface of the pipes and fittings are smooth so limestone or other deposits cannot form and head loss is reduced to a minimum.

Low conductivity of heat

AQUAFLOW PPRC system is a poor conductor of heat, condensation and heat dispersion of the transporter fluid are reduced considerably.

Noise

The materials elasticity high insulation capacity means a considerable reduction of the noise in the installation, even when there is water hammering.

Resistance to Abrasion and corrosion

This feature allows high flow velocities of the transported fluids, up to 7m/s without any problem of erosion, even in the presence of acid alkalies with PH values of 1to14.

Welding Operation

The welding operation is simple and fast:

PPRC pipes and fittings
1.Cut the pipe perpendicular to it's axis 2.Heat the pipe and the fitting at the same time 3.Within the allowed time interval, connect the pipe and the fitting (do not twist) 4.Join pipe and fittings.Finished !
100 % safe welding
