Advantages of pp-R & PP-RCT Pipes for potable water/drinking water.
POLYMELT PP-R pipes (plastic pipes made of polypropylene, single or multi-layered) are lightweight, easy to transport and available for a wide range of projects in suitable dimensions from 20 mm diameter. Matching fittings, valves and distribution elements complete the range. The pipes are installed using a welding technique that guarantees an absolutely leak-proof and long-lasting installation. There is hardly a better alternative for drinking water piping systems when it comes to a hygienically safe supply. We have summarised for you the most important advantages why PP-R pipes are so excellently suited for drinking water.
1. Smooth inner surfaces of the pipes and fittings prevent deposits
Compared to other materials for pipe production, PP-R pipes have an extremely smooth inner pipe wall. The smooth inner surfaces ensure that there is hardly any frictional resistance, deposits are practically impossible and material cannot flake off. The drinking water leaves the tap as clean as it entered the pipes.
2. PP-R pipes for drinking water are durable and low-maintenance
There are now pipes made of PP-R (polypropylene) that have been in service for several decades and still function perfectly. The broad temperature and pressure resistance makes PP-R pipes safe and leak-proof pipes for drinking water. In addition, our pipes require virtually no maintenance throughout their entire service life.
3. PP-R pipes for potable water can be used for different temperature profiles
Our pipe systems were developed as a versatile piping system for drinking water and other liquids. In addition to residential buildings, they are used in hospitals, hotels or public facilities worldwide. Polymelt PP-R pipes can easily withstand high flow temperatures but also very cold environments (even during installation). Other materials can already be more susceptible to damage here, which later causes expensive water leaks and water damage.
4. PP-R pipes in drinking water installations do not emit any harmful substances
PP-R pipes and fittings are hygienically safe materials that have passed all the necessary approvals. It is not for nothing that they are also used in critical environments such as health care facilities. They do not contain any questionable substances that can harm the human organism. Water from PP-R drinking water pipes can be drunk with full enjoyment. Furthermore, the pipes can be 100% recycled..
5. Consistent pipe cross-section – even at the joints
POLYMELT PP-R pipes and fittings are welded together during installation, resulting in homogeneous joints. The advantage: Minimal cross-sectional constrictions and flow-favourable radii for optimum flow, comfort, hygiene and economy due to less frictional resistance and pressure loss.
