University of Utah picks Aquatherm for Inventive, Sustainable Cooling System
The University of Utah picked Aquatherm for an inventive and sustainable cooling system to move irrigation water within a thermal storage tank.
The engineering team designing the new building sought a corrosion-free, eco friendly pipe system to move irrigation water from compartment to compartment in the thermal storage tanks while being submerged under water.
Since Aquatherm pipe won't corrode, scale, wear out or clog and hard water doesn't affect the piping it was the perfect pipe for the job, and less expensive than copper.
The advantages of using Aquatherm:
The design team embraced the corrosion and scale resistance that PP-R offers
Aquatherm piping systems are non-leaching, fully recyclable and can contribute to LEED certification
Aquatherm Blue Pipe multilayer faser (MF) allows for higher operating temperatures with thinner walls, reducing costs and improving flow rates
Drew Urie, General Foreman, Palmer-Christiansen Co., Salt Lake City said:
Heat-fusion welding is a pretty quick process, but the one thing I liked about the Aquatherm - probably my favorite thing - is how light it is. It's a lot lighter than PVC and definitely lighter than steel pipe.
