Polypropylene piping system
Aquatherm’s Greenpipe polypropylene-random (PP-R) piping system
Aquatherm’s Greenpipe polypropylene-random (PP-R) piping system is available in sizes up to 18 in. in diameter and is ideal for water mains and high-rise buildings. The new 18-in. Greenpipe features a standard dimension ratio 11 (SDR 11) wall thickness, which can deliver 4,000 to 6,000 gpm and provides a balance of strength and flow rate. Greenpipe can be directly buried in soil, sand, and other materials. Aquatherm’s natural R-value of 1—or more depending on pipe size and SDR—also delivers potential savings in terms of insulation and energy loss.
