The Challenge

Converting an office building built in 1924 into 281 apartments, including new potable water and HVAC piping


The Solution

The light weight and ease of use of Aquatherm pipe allowed the pipe to be transported to the top floor where it was fused, and then lowered down the building through the stacked mechanical rooms

Location / Date
New Jersey
Spring 2018

Aquatherm Advantages

  • The lighter weight, ability to easily fabricate assemblies and ability to make pipe connections “in the air” presented considerable labor and cost savings over steel pipe
  • The mechanical contractor offered the owner a corrosion-proof piping system with an anticipated service life of 60-plus years, with low operating and maintenance costs
  • Aquatherm PP-R piping systems require no open-flame welding or solder, so no fire watch was required and work proceeded while the buildings were occupied

The Challenge

The chillers at this college run whenever the temperature is above 60°F, so the contractor had a four-month window in winter to perform the retrofit


The Solution

The labor-saving aspects of Aquatherm Blue Pipe® allowed the contractor to finish the job ahead of schedule


Project
Meat processing plant, Glycol piping
Products Used
Aquatherm Blue Pipe®
Location / Date
Ohio
September 2017 - January 2018

Aquatherm Advantages

  • Much of the piping for this project was fabricated offsite and shipped to the jobsite, saving the contractor time and money
  • The long service life of PP-R pipe, and the properties that prevent it from corroding, gave it an advantage over traditional carbon steel pipe
  • The refrigeration piping contractor estimated it saved approximately 50 percent on labor by heat fusing Aquatherm pipe compared with welding steel pipe

The Challenge

This large plant with high ceilings needed an easy-to-install, durable piping system to carry a secondary refrigerant (glycol) throughout the processing and shipping and receiving areas


The Solution

Offsite fabrication services and the light weight of Aquatherm pipe allowed 436 spools to be fabricated and hung 25 to 30 ft above the floor
