AluFlex flexible pipe is equally suitable for distribution systems used in community heating, district heating and for sanitary water. The service pipe is of composite construction, with an aluminium pipe coated with PEX on the inside and with PE on the outside. The aluminium core provides 100% protection against the diffusion of oxygen and steam, as well as making sure the pipe retains its configuration.
A layer of aluminium foil is placed between the outer casing and the insulation of the AluFlex pipe and acts as a diffusion barrier. This ensures consistent, stable insulating properties, lambda 0.022 W/mK throughout the service life of the pipe.
AluFlex pipes can be operated continuously at 95°C and have a maximum working pressure of 10 bar.
AluFlex flexible pipe systems are available both as single and twin pipe solutions.
