Project
Windsor Over Peachtree, condominiums, HVAC system
Products Used
Aquatherm Blue Pipe®
Location / Date
Atlants, GA
December 2017 - July 2018

Aquatherm Advantages

  • The virtually leak-free performance of heat-fused Aquatherm pipe impressed the contractor — only five leaks were detected out of more than 4,000 fusion welds
  • The ability to fabricate risers offsite presented considerable installation time savings over steel pipe, and dramatically reduced system downtime in an occupied building
  • As this was an occupied building, the ability to install new pipe without welding or open flame was of paramount importance to the building owner

The Challenge

Replacing the deteriorating and leaking HVAC piping in an occupied, 22-story condominium building with tight mechanical blockouts between floors


The Solution

Lightweight and virtually leakfree Aquatherm Blue Pipe® was installed with no flame or welding, and the fast installation speed made possible by offsite fabrication caused minimal disruption for the residents

Aquatherm Advantages

  • The speed with which Aquatherm polypropylene-random (PP-R) pipe can be heat fused compared to welding steel was crucial on this project
  • The ability to fabricate piping assemblies and deliver them to the site allowed the contractor to maximize the amount of fusion work completed each day
  • The durability and longevity of PP-R pipe were key in a facility that is operational 24/7/365

The Challenge

A fast-paced construction schedule was required to keep the heated and chilled water HVAC system installation on schedule


The Solution

Choosing Aquatherm polypropylene-random (PP-R) pipe allowed the installation crews to move, mobilize, and fabricate the pipe quickly and efficiently, and moved the project ahead of schedule

Aquatherm Advantages

  • The hydrophobic nature of Aquatherm pipe and its resistance to corrosion, erosion, and scaling were important to the client in an area of aggressive water
  • Aquatherm’s custom fabrication services were employed by the customer to save time and labor on the jobsite
  • The light weight of Aquatherm pipe, as well as its low likelihood of jobsite theft, were appreciated by the contractor throughout multiple projects
UBC

The Challenge

A major university in Western Canada was seeking a piping material for its residence halls and other campus buildings that would stand up well to the area’s aggressive water


The Solution

Aquatherm Green Pipe® is hydrophobic, suitable for domestic water uses, and when properly applied will not will not corrode, erode, or pit like copper or steel piping, even in areas with aggressive water
