POLYESTER PIPES – TECHNOLOGY FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
POLYESTER PIPES AND OTHER PRODUCTS FEATURE A FAVOURABLE CARBON FOOTPRINT
Independent studies have demonstrated that our polyester pipes and other products feature smaller carbon footprints than comparable pipes made of other materials.
An independent study by the Norwegian University of Applied Science (INN), 2012, established that polyester pipes have a less harmful impact on the environment compared to pipes made of other materials. This is mainly due to high material performance coefficients of all the components applied.
Polyester pipes are lighter than others and are easy to load on different means of transport. Stowing smaller diameter pipes on top of larger ones and the small specific weight of the pipes contribute to cost efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of transport operations. To transport pipes with different diameters economically, smaller diameter pipes can be nested inside larger ones. The inserted pipes must rest on the surface below and must not be hung on steel belts.
EXCELLENT HYDRAULIC PERFORMANCE
Smooth internal walls of polyester pipes ensure excellent hydraulic performance and volumetric flow rate, which translates into pumping energy savings.
Polyester pipes are recyclable. The German AVK – Industrial Association for Reinforced Plastics recommends reusing polyester pipes as additives in cement production.
LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Manufacture of polyester pipes requires less energy input than manufacture of most other pipes.
CERTIFICATES AND STANDARDS
Our products come with appropriate declaration of performance and national technical approvals: STS-06/036, STS-08/083, STS-15/0025, STS-19-2021 according to the provisions of EU regulation on the mutual recognition of goods and Construction Products Regulation (CPR). The products used for drainage are in line with Commission Delegated Decision (EU) 2015/1959 of 1 July 2015 on the applicable systems to assess and verify constancy of performance of wastewater engineering products pursuant to Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council (OJ L 284, 30.10.2015, p. 184-186).
They comply with EU and international technical specifications and standards: CEN/TS 14632, EN 15383, EN 14364, EN 1796, EN ISO 3126, EN 14982, EN 14982, EN 14802, EN 476, EN 1228, EN 1393, ISO 10468, ISO 10471, EN 1119, EN 858-1: 2002 and others.
