The system reduces the dissipation of the heat of the transported fluid (0.21 W/mK) and prevents the condensation which normally occurs on the outer surface of metal pipes under specific hydrometric conditions.
This makes it possible to better absorb the stresses caused by the linear expansion of the pipes. In addition, since this is a molecular fusion joining system, it provides an excellent response when subjected to vibrations and earthquakes.
It has been proved that IPS Fusion System is more resistant to the movements produced while being used (water hammer) or to manipulation while being installed or transported.
Specially designed to endure low external temperatures, it also offers the highest performance as to the temperature – pressure relationship with years of constant use.
Its entirely smooth inner surfaces and its low coefficient of friction result in minimum pressure loss and prevent fur and scale from developing.
The system offers an excellent response in respect of fluids containing acid and alkaline elements and hard water, and it is suitable for the transportation of fluids rich in aggressive agents.
