Aquatherm Advantages

  • The limited installation space was a non-issue since the pipe was able to be downsized thanks to its superior flow rate
  • Blue Pipe weighs up to 75% less than comparably sized metal pipes making the installation much easier
  • The corrosion-resistant and leak-free PP-R pipe is engineered to last over 60 years

The Challenge

New 4-inch main and 3-inch supply lines were required in tight spaces to serve WHSP and chiller units for the data center and A/C system.

The Solution

Blue Pipe was installed to provided labor savings and eased installation.

The installation lasted approximately two weeks. If this had been a steel pipe installation it would have been three to four weeks to cut and thread pipe this size and then deal with weight issues.”
