PE-RT Pipe is durable tubing.it is not actually cross-linked (like PEX).But It provides superior long-term hydrostatic strength at high temperatures, and is commonly used in domestic hot and cold plumbing applications. Because PE-RT Pipe is made from a special grade of high-density polyethylene (PE) resin.
The Plastics Pipe Institute defines PE-RT as: “a polyethylene (PE) resin in which the molecular architecture has been designed such that a sufficient number of tie chains are incorporated to allow operation at elevated or raised temperatures (RT).”
Advantage of PE-RT Pipe:
>>PE-RT Pipe is 5 times lighter than steel pipes.
>>The temperature linear expansion of PE-RT pipes is several times less than that of standard PEX pipes. Good heat and pressure resistance.
>>PE-RT pipes is somewhat cheaper, while meeting all the requirements for this heating method.
>>Do not need maintenance during operation and are silent at almost any flow rate.
>>100% Recyclable.Green environmental protection products, can be recycled and reused.
>>PE-RT compatible with all PEX fittings, and it’s a less expensive option.
The different between PE-RT Type I and Type II.
Sfanpex PE-RT PIPE has two type: Type I and Type II.
Under the same pressure, Type II PE-RT PIPE resistance higher temperature than Type I.
Under the same temperature, Type II PE-RT resistance higher pressure than Type I.
