When supplying water and gas through pipes, distribution networks and
service connections or hydrants, a reliable connection is a key
priority. Pipes, fittings, valves and other components must be joined
safely and reliably. Georg Fischer Piping Systems is presenting
plastic pipes at the trade show, demonstrating the fact that the right
choice of materials is crucial. We use environmentally friendly
plastic systems for a wide range of applications in building
technology, water treatment, water supply and cooling. High-purity,
deionized water, chemicals and refrigerants are but a few examples of
the numerous media transported today through plastic piping systems.
Plastic pipes score extremely well regarding their CO2 footprint because they are lightweight. The total greenhouse gas emissions in the manufacture, transport and disposal of a one-meter PE pipe are roughly five times less than for a comparable stainless steel pipe.
