The preferred application areas for pre-insulated pipes RAPID are refrigeration, food and beverage industries. The most important aspects for these products are fast and easy installation and high level of performance. Therefore this product series is differentiated according to their application and design in two lines: RAPID-ESP and RAPID-COOL:
ESP stands for System Energy Saving Pipe. Designed for systems with consideration on low energy consumption. The specially created high efficient polyurethane insulation foam reduces the insulation layer thickness up to 30% compared to same insulation property of conventionally insulated systems.
COOL characterizes the design for applications at low operating temperature. The diffusion-resistant sheathing protects the pipe system against the ingress of water and dust.
As a variation of the RAPID-COOL pipe system, the RAPID-CRYO covers applications with medium temperatures down to -200°C.
FIRESAFE® pipe design fulfills the special requirements for installation in inflammable atmospheres and for operation inside potentially explosive areas (ATEX). The fire-resistant system withstands open fire up to 90 minutes (criteria: warming of the carrier pipe < 450 °C). Three classifications differentiate the product series of FIRESAFE®:
T30 pipe system is based on a single polyurethane foam layer with special fire protection additives. Fire resistance time: 30 minutes
T60 similar to FIRESAFE®-T30, but has two layers of thermal insulation foam separated by a metallic layer. Fire resistance time: 60 minutes
T90 similar to FIRESAFE®-T30, but has three layers of thermal insulation foam each separated by a metallic layer. Fire resistance time: 90 minutes
