STEELOX – The World’s First Flexible Stainless Steel Drinking Water Pipe

The ambitious idea of developing a flexible, manually bendable drinking water pipe made of 316L stainless steel with the highest hygienic properties became reality with the development of STEELOX.

Arriving in New Zealand in early 2022, STEELOX combines the successful and proven systems of KELOX and STEELFIX into one product. The 316L stainless-steel inner layer is surrounded by an outer layer of PE-RT so that it is optimally protected against external influences. This combination of two high-quality materials enables the outstanding flexibility of the pipe with optimal hygienic properties. Stainless steel is extremely resilient, does not age, and is therefore indispensable for drinking water hygiene and in handling:

  • Chlorine
  • Where increased flow velocities are required
  • Recirculating hot water applications
  • Corrosive environments and around swimming pools
  • Burial in ground
  • Long runs with no mechanical fittings in the walls except at wingbacks
  • Known problem regions for copper, such as Christchurch
  • Applications in hospitals, hotels, education facilities, apartments, and other industrial projects

The STEELOX range consists of straight lengths of pipe, pipe coils to minimise the number of fittings (with the option of pre-insulated), press fittings, full flow press-fit valves, and specialised tools to deliver a robust, world-first, innovative piping system.

STEELOX fittings are delivered with a ‘Leak Before Pressed’ function (LBP). Fittings with a Leak Before Pressed function have the advantage that connections that have not been pressed will leak water during pressure testing. This means that an incomplete press connection can easily be identified.

Available in sizes 16, 20, and 25mm, STEELOX’s technical properties are impressive: permanent operating temperatures of up to 80°C, temperature peaks of up to 100°C, and a pressure of 10 bar. With the temperature/pressure relationship can the STEELOX handle 16bar at 20°C.

KE KELIT were the first manufacturer in Austria to receive ÖVGW registration for the flexible stainless steel drinking water pipe system. In addition, the system has been tested and registered according to ÖNORM B5175.
