BENEFITS OF PP-R(CT)
Innovative by Design
PESTAN PP-R(CT) piping systems are designed for installation by trained professionals. With a focus on the installer, these
systems are Innovative by Design and offer several benefits that make installing pipe safe, effective and less tiring.
Complete Piping Systems
PESTAN offers a full line of PP-RCT fittings keeping installation simple and providing an easy transition to other
piping systems and equipment.
Weighing up to 80% less than traditional metal pipes PESTAN pipes are easy to handle and more cost effective to transport.
Their light weight makes them easier to assemble making for a safe and less tiring installation.
Under normal operating temperatures, the pipes will not shatter when impacted or over-pressured. When temperatures
fall to or below freezing, the impact resistance of the pipes decreases so the installers must use caution when handling.
During installation, there are no solders, solvents or glues required. PP-RCT is joined via a process known as heat
fusion. During the fusion process, the pipe and fittings are heated under controlled temperatures and then joined.
The molecules of the polymer flow together creating a seamless, permanent leak-free bond. No open flames are required
and no toxic Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's) are emitted during the process. Heat fusion is a quick, safe joining
Saddle Outlet Fusion Joints
Even after the mains are set, branch lines can be easily added using saddle fusion joints. With Saddle Outlets,
the branch is fused directly into the wall of the main. It is a time saver and provides lower pressure drop as
compared to traditional reducing tee fittings.
Prefabrication and Transport
PESTAN PP-R(CT) pipes and fittings are ideal for prefabrication and transport without the risk of the pre-fab
joints failing. The unique properties of PP-R(CT) pipe, combined with the permanent, leak free bonds created by joining
with Heat Fusion, create monolithic system. These characteristics also help prevent damage from seismic activity or
from environments exposed to vibrations such as cruise ships, trains and manufacturing facilities.
Easy to Identify
PESTAN PP-R(CT) pipes are color coded for ease of identification.
PESTAN PP-R(CT) pipes are available in 13' straight lengths. The pipe is color coded for ease of identification.
