COOL-FIT ABS Plus features a core pipe made of ABS, which is insulated with high density polyurethane (PUR). The insulation is protected with a black polyethylene jacket that is water-tight and UV resistant, making it suitable for outdoor use. In addition, the entire system is completely diffusion and vapor tight - ideal for food production environments. COOL-FIT ABS Plus is suitable for cooling applications with water-based coolants from -58°F to 104°F (-50 °C to +40 °C) at an operating pressure of up to 10 bar and within diameters from ¾” to 12” (d25 to d315).
The patented joining technology, the inner nipple, is an outstanding added value of the system. It reduces work effort by avoiding the complex removal of the polyurethane insulation. It also allows the system to be quickly and efficiently solvent cemented with COOL-FIT ABS Cement & Cleaner, a bonding technology widely tested and used.
The insulation quality of the system with a thermal conductivity of 0.023 W / (m * K), associated to a constant thickness of insulation on both pipes and fittings, makes COOL-FIT ABS Plus the ideal system to efficiently run cooling installations. The energy loss along the lines is minimized and thermal bridges are eliminated.
This ready-to-install pre-insulated system maintains its original properties for its complete life span of 25 years. COOL-FIT ABS Plus is corrosion and incrustation proof. The nominal bore is maintained throughout the installation life time and therefore no increase in pressure drops, maintaining efficient low pumping energy requirements.
The production of COOL-FIT ABS Plus generates a much lower CO2 footprint than any other metal production - from 40% to 60% lower depending on the type of metal.
Application areas for COOL-FIT ABS Plus pre-insulated piping systems:
• Breweries, wineries, soft drink and juice production
• Food production (slaughterhouses, meat/fish/fruits/vegetables processing)
• Cold stores
• Air conditioning
• Process cooling
• Data centers
