- Chilled Water to -30°C
THE KETRIX PIPE SYSTEM
The KETRIX industrial pipe system was developed as a solution for the corrosion occurring in traditional pipe systems (e.g. copper, steel), whilst being able to resist lower temperatures, which is often a problem for plastic pipe systems. The KETRIX system is an own development of KE KELIT.
KETRIX is s suitable for compressed air and has high chemical resistance to compressor oils, no corrosion ensures that the quality of the compressed air is maintained, no energy loss caused by leakage through dried seals and, the smooth surface means there are low friction losses and no narrowing of the cross-section in the fitting. As a result of the this and the elasticity of the material, there is a low noise transmission.
KETRIX is suitable for chilled water down to -30°C, is resistant to all concentrations of glycol brines, resistant to corrosion even at points which have fallen below the temperature of dew point, and at the aggressive temperature of + – 0° and, no pre-treatment or painting of the pipes is necessary.
Dezincification resistant brass (CW 724 R) for all parts which transport water ensures a high resistance to aggressive water. They are coated with non-porous metal plating. This prevents stress crack corrosion. Both male and female threads in straight and elbow designs are available.
MS 58 brass with pore-free plating is used for metal components, not in contact with water. The threads are designed to be resistant to torsion and are suitable for the building site. Threads conform to DIN 16962.
Please note the KETRIX handbook states the system can be used for drinking cold water, however, KE KELIT only supplies the system for compressed air and chilled water applications and offer other solutions for hot and cold water (Drinking water) applications. Please see KELOX MULTILAYER, STEELFIX and COPPERFIX for drinking water solutions.
