Pipelagger Pro from Plumbpal is said to provide seamless joints when insulating pipes.
Although many applications are often hidden from the customer for aesthetic and practical reasons (e.g. roof spaces, garages and floor voids), these unheated environments are where seamless joints are most needed to combat low ambient temperatures and to prevent the boiler from cycling unnecessarily.
The government’s aim to reduce the UK`s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% (from the 1990 baseline) by 2050, would be more achievable if we focussed more pro–actively on preventing thermal heat losses from heating and hot water systems in the home.
Inadequate insulation on heated pipework can lead to energy wastage and it is important to ensure that all pipework fitted outside the building envelope is protected against freezing as well as to prevent heat losses.
By contrast, cold water pipework within a building must be kept at a temperature below 20ºC to prevent legionella growth, which is more prevalent between temperatures between 20ºC to 50ºC and if water stagnates for relatively short periods of time, biofilm may be produced, which provides a further habitat for legionella bacteria.
Pipelagger Pro simplifies what is commonly seen as an unappealing and laborious task when insulating pipes and fittings.
Furthermore, Pipelagger Pro drives industry standards upwards and guarantees seamless joints once the correct techniques are adopted.
