Five-layer Pipe for Radiant Heating System

August 9, 2017 | By HPAC Magazine

Roth X-Pert S5 five-layer pipe consists of a layer of ethylene vinyl alcohol polymer (EVOH) sandwiched between two layers of Polyethylene Copolymer Resin and two layers of adhesive. This structure provides the long-term hydrostatic design strength demanded by hydronic heating applications. The pipe may be joined using insert fittings and clamps certified to ASTM F-877, F-1807, or F-2159. It may also be joined using thermal fusion methods eliminating the need for mid-loop mechanical fittings. Maximum operating temperature and pressure are 200 PSI at 73F and 100 PSI at 180F.
