Included in the product scope of the internationally operating piping system specialist is of course the corresponding jointing technology, thus rounding off the all-inclusive system approach. At IFAT the new butt fusion machine TM 315 will be presented for the first time to the public.

It effectively visualizes the implementation of the total system of Georg Fischer with pipes, fittings, valves as much as sensors and instruments at the example of this uncomplicated and very economical process of separation. 

In addition to water management, GF Piping Systems will also be presenting solutions for the biogas and geothermal energy sectors at IFAT. In these two areas, all-plastic piping solutions contribute to increased plant safety and warrant long life cycles.
