We are enhancing our specialist fuel conveyance pipe system, PLX, with a collection of ‘one-weld’ transition fittings for our Close-Fit pipework range, aiding the installation process for installers, contractors and end users.
Introduced to simplify the multiple steps currently required to weld transitions, the one-weld transitions allow the installer to half the number of welds required at the end of a pipe run, making significant savings on installation time and costs.
The transitions are now available in sizes 32#40mm and 63#75mm, in a choice of passivated mild steel or stainless steel. The transition fittings utilise innovative ‘one-weld’ technology to ensure that a continuous secondary contained system is installed, by welding the inner and outer pipes in a secondary contained system simultaneously.
Ideal for time critical projects, the transitions enhance the Close-Fit PLX range and are suitable for a wide variety of fuel transfer applications in sectors including data centres, hospitals, forecourts and water treatment plants.
Commenting on the introduction of the fittings, Rich Pedley, PLX Product Manager, said: “We are always looking to make the installation of our PLX system as simple as possible for customers and these transitions have been developed with the installer in mind.
“The one-weld technology significantly reduces installation time, which is not only an advantage for the installer, but the end user will also benefit from the subsequent cost savings. We have received a lot of enquiries for these transitions and now that they are available we are expecting them to be a popular addition to the range.”
Durapipe PLX is a below ground pipework product range that consists of both single wall and dual contained pipe and fittings and is purpose-designed for the safe transfer of liquid fuels and their vapours. Providing exceptional resistance to rapid crack propagation and long term stress cracking, PLX comprises a protective liner, which increases permeation resistance against many types of fuel blends ensuring there is no permeation of fuel through the pipe wall into the environment.
