- FUSION EQUIPMENT
If your facility is over 20 years old, chances are you’ve got an infrastructure issue that’s every bit as critical as America’s roads and bridges. The pipes in your facility are probably made out of carbon steel, copper or stainless steel – and they’re developing flow issues and leaking due to corrosion and tuberculation. While you can afford to replace a small section or repair a random leak, there comes a point when the problems are too frequent and too costly in terms of maintenance, disruption of business and the liability of safety hazards. This can add up to tens of thousands of dollars lost to downtime each occurrence.
Or, maybe you’re looking at an expansion or re-purposing existing systems – putting in a new production line or upgrading equipment – and want a longer-lasting, more efficient solution that can be installed in a fraction of the time.
Now is the time to consult with the piping experts at ISCO and learn the benefits of installing Aquatherm polypropylene in your facility.
Aquatherm polypropylene pipe is a patented form of industrial-strength polypropylene pipe. Its inherent corrosion and chemical resistance have made Aquatherm a global leader in everything from construction in chemical and manufacturing plants, paper mills, commercial buildings to other industrial applications. The ease of installation, longer life span (60 years), insulative capacity, corrosion-proof and virtually leak-free fusion joints of Aquatherm are rapidly making it the optimum choice for transferring all types of fluids.
Similar to HDPE, Aquatherm is a monolithic fusible plastic that is fused together through a combination of heat and pressure. This process takes just minutes – not hours like other materials. Installed correctly, it will remain leak-free for decades.
