Main Characteristics
The material’s elasticity and high insulation capacity mean a considerable reduction in the noise of the installation even when there is water hammering.
Welding capacity
This is fundamental characteristic of the system. It enables all the elements in the system to be joined by poly-fusion welding or the use of electric coupling.
The masters system is in full compliance with the international standards on the use of plastic materials for the transportation of drinking water.
Inserts in fittings
All threaded in the fittings and joints are made of nickel plated brass OT 58 and are turned from bars .they make it possible to obtain watertight assemblies with other metal elements in the plant . an internal PP-R lining avoids the risk of corrosion and ensures full continuity .
Head loss
The internal surface of the pipes and fitting are smooth so limestone or other deposits cannot form and head loss is reduced to the minimum.
The low specific weight means easy of transport and handling.
The system can be used in traditional site installation, for the preparation of prefabricated constructions and in the creation of modules or fitted walls.
Energy saving
The reduced heat dispersion in association with a low thermic inertia , allow to supply hot water even if the pipe has not yet reached the average working temperature . The energy saving is in the range of 10% to 20%.
Resistance to abrasion and corrosion
This characteristic allows high flow velocities of the transported fluid .up to 7m/s, without any problem of erosion, even in the presence of acid and alkaline substance with PH values between 1 and 14.
Resistance to frost
The typical elasticity of PP-R permits the enlargement of the pipe section under the thrust of the volume increase due to freezing of the conveyed liquid .
Fitness for use in seismic areas
The flexibility and resilience of the PP-R pipeline allow their use also in seismic areas.
Low conductivity of the heat
Since PP-R is a poor conductor of heat , condensation and heat dispersion of the transported fluid are considerably reduced .
Resistance to stray currents
The masters system is poor conductor of electricity, therefore perforation phenomena caused by stray currents are unknown.
