Michel Vanden Eynde, Field Engineer Aleris Aluminum, spoke about Aluminium Solutions for efficient pipe production. He presented the new generation of aluminium alloys: Pipelite®!
KWD-globalpipe, 20.12.2013. To provide excellent customer support and to recommend the right materials for the individual application of each, Aleris has developed a new generation of aluminium alloys.
Pipelite® complies with the corresponding EN norm, but has an optimized chemical composition and mechanical properties towards the specific application.
Dedicatied solutions for individual applications:
- Pipelite® 801 HF, Pipelite® 105 HF and Pipelite® 120 HF are optimized for flexibility and bendability. It allows e.g. smaller bending radius in floor heating.
- Pipelite® 806 SE and Pipelite® 120 SE are improved for higher to extremely high expansion as is required for special fittings.
- Pipelite® 806 HP and Pipelite® 303 HP meet both the highest pressure performance in combination with maximum down gaging possibilities.
Aleris´ most successful multilayer tubing qualities are Pipelite® 806 HP and Pipelite® 303 HP.
Thinckness-tolerances at the minimum and maintaining good pressure test performance allow maximum cost saving possibilities: Cost savings for multi layer pipe producers are more than 100 €/ton!
