The composite nature of Unipro Multilayer Pipes along its compression technology fittings have some important features which make it the piping system of choice for a wide variety of applications
The Pipes are flexible and do not have memory, hence it can be bent into any shape without springing back to its original position. It maintains the given shape and there is no need to use heat or any special tools for bending the pipes.
Smooth Inner Surface
The pipes have a low 'Absolute Pipe Roughness' of only 0.0015 mm. This results in less friction during the flow of fluid and subsequently lower pressure losses. The inner surface smoothness is up to 100 times better compared with traditional metal pipes such as Galvanized Iron pipes.
Corrosion is a major reason for increased costs as it reduces system pressure, flow rates and gradually leads to leakages, moreover it reduces the working life of the piping system. Since the inner layer of Unipro Multilayer Pipes is of polyethylene which is rust and corrosion resistant, all of the associated effects of corrosion are eliminated in our pipes.
Minimum Use of Fittings
Due to the flexibility of the pipes, '90° Elbow' fittings are not required in the piping system. Similarly, the pipes come in standard packaging of up to 200 meters and hence use of 'pipe to pipe connector' fittings is also reduced significantly. Minimum use of fittings in the piping system leads to optimized flow rates and reduces the possible leakage points.
The pipes have an outstanding resistance to a wide range of chemicals.
Low Thermal Conductivity
Thermoplastics are a bad conductor of heat. As a result, the overall Thermal Conductivity of Unipro Multilayer pipes is very low at 0.45 W/mK, which is about 1/100th of metal pipes.
