BENEFITS OF PP-R(CT)
The Smart Investment
As an Owner, you look for a product that is cost effective, has long term performance and is low maintenance. Providing multiple
benefits to the Owner, PESTAN PP-R(CT) is the Smart investment for your installation.
PESTAN PP-R(CT) piping systems are more cost effective to operate and maintain as compared to traditional metal piping systems. It is
joined with heat fusion so there are no mechanical fittings or gaskets to fail. The absence of mechanical fittings substantially
minimizes the chance of damage related to leaks.
Low Maintenance Costs
The pipe is resistant to corrosion and scaling so no additional chemical treatments are required.
Lower Pumping Costs
PP-R(CT) pipes have a lower coefficient of friction than metal pipes resulting in lower pumping costs.
No Toxic Elements
PESTAN pipes and fittings do not contain toxic materials and do not emit VOC's or other dangerous compounds even when exposed to fire.
Reduced Heat Transfer Values
PESTAN PP-R(CT) pipes have a lower Thermal Conductivity value than traditional metal pipes (1.67 BTU(in/hr ft2 °F), 0.139 BTU(ft hr °F), 0.241 watts/m °K).
- Minimized loss or gain of heat means improved energy savings
- Less insulation is required
- Less condensation when used in chilled water applications
- Reduced chance of injury around exposed hot water piping
Use of PESTAN PP-R(CT) can help your project qualify for LEEDS Credits. LEED certified buildings
are more efficient to operate, are more sustainable and can provide higher re-sale values.
Withstands Freezing Conditions
Although not designed to be installed in applications repeatedly frozen and thawed, if the fluid inside the pipe
freezes, it should not damage PP-R and PP-RCT material. PESTAN recommends use of anti-freeze such as glycol or
glycerin, use of plastic safe heating cables/tapes or simply keeping of the minimum constant flow through pipes
to protect proper function and integrity of the system.
Extended Service Life
PESTAN PP-R(CT) Pipes are both chemically and physically durable and offer advanced performance over other piping systems.
They provide building owners with a long, low maintenance service life of 50 + years, depending on the application.
PESTAN offers a 10 year warranty that covers product replacement, incidental and property damages caused by material
failure due to manufacturing defects. Systems must be installed and successfully tested by PESTAN Certified Installers
and a properly recorded . The Pressure Test Form must be submitted to PESTAN.
