Aquatherm Advantages

  • Unlike the existing carbonsteel piping, Aquatherm PP-R piping systems won’t corrode, rust, or scale, eliminating future downtime caused by pipe corrosion
  • Because Aquatherm PP-R is so lightweight, the piping systems are easy to fabricatein advance and lift and heat-fuse onsite, even the project’s 16-in.-dia. pipe
  • An inherent low thermal conductivity makes insulating Aquatherm unnecessary in some indoor applications, saving on installation costs and creating a cleaner, more uniform installation

The Challenge

An injection molding facility had begun to incur losses because its existing carbon-steel piping was experiencing excessive corrosion, but replacing 300 ft of welded steel for a manufacturing process that virtually never stops was not going to be easy


The Solution

The plant’s facility maintenance supervisor chose to replace the steel piping with Aquatherm Blue Pipe, which is completely noncorroding and will not break down, weaken, or scale like metal piping systems

February 2015

Aquatherm Advantages

  • Aquatherm piping’s potential labor savings and natural insulation properties were greater than any offered by traditional materials
  • Aquatherm’s Quick Check Estimator helped the mechanical contractor calculate labor savings using Aquatherm vs. traditional materials pre-installation
  • Aquatherm piping’s interior and exterior corrosion resistance staved off the negative effects of the aggressive local water
St Johns Case Study1

The Challenge

A new, $12 million health and human services center needed a high-quality HVAC system to help ensure the health and safety of its vulnerable clientele


The Solution

The mechanical contractor chose Aquatherm polypropylene-random (PP-R) piping because its potential labor savings and natural insulation properties were greater than any offered by traditional materials

Location / Date
South Central U.S.
August 2012

Aquatherm Advantages

  • Aquatherm’s heat-fusion welding technique allowed the mechanical contractor to fuse the piping system quickly, finishing the project a month ahead of schedule
  • Because of Aquatherm’s light weight and simple heat-fusion process, the mechanical contractor’s projected labor costs came in under budget
  • Aquatherm provided a leak-free piping system

The Challenge

After four months of repairing leaks, a candy manufacturer finally approved a retrofit on a carbon-steel geothermal loop when a wall shared by an expensive data center was affected


The Solution

Even with unique time and space constraints, the mechanical contractor chose Aquatherm PP-R piping systems, and the project still was completed under budget and ahead of schedule
