Preinsulated flexible pipe systems made of cross-linked polyethylene core pipe and polyurethane insulation for district heating applications at low temperatures.
Advantages of HeatFlex system include: quick and convenient installation, narrow pipe trench and tight bending radius of the flexible bonded system.
HeatFlex carrier pipe is made of PEX-a SDR11 with oxygen barrier guaranteeing maximum pressure of 6 bar at 80 °C continuous working temperature.
This highly efficient pipe system boats an outstanding thermal conductivity value λ = 0.021 W/mK. In order to reduce the heat losses, a second insulation series with higher level of insulation is available too.
HeatFlex is the best solution for:

HeatFlex pipes are connected using press or clamp connectors of different configurations (weld adaptors, couplers, elbows, tees).
The installation of the press connector requires the pipe end to be expanded before placing the metal insert into the pipe; this is followed by the compression of the outer sleeve onto the pipe’s outer surface with use of an industry-standard PEX press tool.
To install the clamp connector no need for pipe end to be expanded is required: the fittings installation is done with use of a conventional nut driver without the need for any special tooling.
The foaming of pipe joints is made with insulation shells of different configurations:
– straight piece
– elbow 90°
– tee branch
The sealing of the joint against water and humidity penetrations is guaranteed by special lateral gaskets perfectly fit to the external corrugated casing of the pipe.
These insulation shells are quick and easy to install without the need for special tooling.
