A current highlight is the Signet 9900 transmitter with luminous display and flexibly configurable single-channel interface to measure diverse parameters. Further innovations of GF Piping Systems are the practical polypropylene compression fitting iJOINT for fast and easy house connections, the new generation of check valves type 561 and 562 with a newly designed check cone, as well as a new generation of diaphragm valves with twice the flow thanks to optimized flow contours. The restraint MULTI/JOINT 3000 Plus fittings for water supply pipes are now also available in the dimensions DN350 and DN400 for water pressures up to 10 bar and gas pressures up to 5 bar.

A reliable piping system with a long service life and low maintenance costs calls for optimal jointing technologies. At Aquatech GF Piping Systems demonstrates the MSA 330 and MSA 340 polyvalent electrofusion devices, equipped with state-of-the-art technology, such as USB interface to transfer fusion protocols to your computer, user-friendly keypad and – for the 340 model – a GPS function for seamless product traceability according to ISO 12176.

Safe pipe jointing, efficient flow control and precise measurement of parameters, e.g. temperature, pH, chlorine content, are indispensable for nearly all applications in water management. Also on exhibit at Aquatech are innovative solutions from GF Piping Systems for setting up and operating dependable piping systems. The focus of the exhibition is on recent developments and proven solutions for water treatment and water transport, which are presented in interesting demo installations.

Water treatment systems are meant to ideally support treatment process – a crucial step on the road to achieving a better water quality. GF Piping Systems contributes significantly toward this goal with comprehensive know-how, outstanding service and a complete range of solutions, consisting of pipes, fittings, manual and actuated valves and state-of-the-art measurement and control technology. The interplay of all these components can best be seen in the complete reverse osmosis installation on display at Aquatech.
