Insulated PEX Barrier Piping System
By HPAC MagazineHydronics
Viega has introduced its ProRadiant insulated PEX barrier piping system for its snow melting system. The system’s high-compressive strength makes it suitable for burial under areas with high traffic loads or foot traffic. The “smart” membrane between the outer casing and insulation enhances and maintains the insulation value. The bonded system eliminates risk of water penetration and no special considerations for thermal expansion are required. The polyethylene (LDPE) jacket resists impact or blows incurred during the installation or transportation.
