Pre-insulated pipes for enhanced operational safety and efficiency
Building durability and safety into biomass-based
Whether specifying insulation solutions for heating networks or small-scale connecting lines, the core challenges remain intertwined. In both applications, achieving optimal thermal performance, temperature and pressure resistance, and maintaining a balance between lifetime and installation cost are key objectives. In small-scale connecting lines, the complexity arises from the need for easy installation, specifically for rural installations, which are often managed by farmers and small communities. Our specialised insulation solutions, AustroPUR and AustroPEX, effectively bridge this gap, offering versatile performance characteristics that cater to the unique demands of both heating networks and connecting lines while maintaining a strong focus on cost-effective and efficient installation.
Master the intricacies of heating networks
In the application of district heating networks, operational safety and efficiency of the entire system are key concerns. And so is a quick, cost-efficient, and safe installation. Striking the balance between thermal performance, temperature, pressure resistance, lifetime, and installation cost is a complex puzzle. To support specifiers, operators and installers navigate this fairly new terrain, we designed a flexible district heating pipe system. Based on an innovative combination of a PUR foam core with closed-cell PEX foam and an aluminium coating as a vapour barrier, it offers superior thermal performance, ensuring minimal heat loss in the network and mitigating corrosion under insulation. This not only guarantees the longevity and reliability of your heating network but also ensures an extremely reliable and straightforward installation due to its flexible and lightweight properties.
Rely on cost efficient installation for small scale connecting lines
When it comes to small-scale connecting lines, farmers and small communities often prefer to handle the installation themselves. In this context, factors such as installation cost, ease of installation, and temperature/pressure resistance are as critical as ensuring that these lines meet safety standards and guarantee operational efficiency. At Armacell, we know that using highly flexible, easy-to-install piping systems for connecting lines can significantly reduce installation costs and improve system efficiency. That’s why our AustroPEX system is designed to ensure that even in small-scale installations, operational safety and efficiency are never compromised. As a highly flexible piping system based on flexible closed-cell PE-X foam, it ensures consistent thickness even around curves and obstacles. This means, fewer pre-formed connection pieces are needed, reducing both installation cost and risk of leakage.
Benefit from a trusted partner
The bio-based energy sector is characterised by constant development. For specifiers of technical insulation that means staying on top of the latest design and construction requirements that are unique to this application. At Armacell, we believe that selecting the right insulation for your needs, starts with the right guidance and support during the design and installation phases. And we are committed to making sure you receive a system solution that aligns with the long-term sustainability of bio-based heating networks. As part of this ambition, our easily available piping system comes in cut-to-order pipe lengths, streamlining the installation process and minimising material wastage.
