Ekoplastik Fiber Pipes


1. UTILISATION OF FIBER PIPES FIBER pipes are three-layered pipes. The inner and outer layers are made of polypropylene, type 3 (PPR) while the middle layer consists of polypropylene (PPR) reinforced with glass fibre (GF). The composition of the layers can be schematically described as PPR/ PPR-GF/PPR. FIBER pipes are designed for transport of cold and hot water, low-temperature heating (we do not recommend using them for heating systems with a higher heating water temperature than 70C), compressed air distribution systems and air-conditioning. 2. WARRANTY TERMS AND CONDITIONS FIBER pipes as a part of the Ekoplastik PPR system are guaranteed for the period of 10 years. This guarantee is only valid if the provisions of these instructions and the Assembly Instructions of the Ekoplastik PPR system are observed. The guarantee only covers pipes and pipe fittings of the Ekoplastik PPR system and pipelines made of them. 3. PRODUCT RANGE BASIC INFORMATION

4.2. Marking of FIBER pipes The pipes are grey with an orange stripe. On the pipe there is a description containing the manufacturers name, pipe designation, dimension x wall thickness, series (pressure range), time, date, line number: EKOPLASTIK FIBER PPR/PPR-GF/PPR 20x3.4 S2.5 (PN20) time, date, line no. Made in EU (Czech Republic) 4.3. Information about the basic material for production of FIBER pipes The basic material is polypropylene, type 3 (PPR), the same as used for the production of all-plastic pipes. For the production of the middle layer the basic material is reinforced with glass fibre, which considerably reduced the total thermal expansion of pipes. 4.4. Standards for product manufacturing and testing FIBER pipes are produced in accordance with the PN 01 corporate standard in compliance with requirements of SN EN ISO 21003 and SN EN ISO 15874. 4.5. FIBER pipes are certified in these countries: Czech Republic, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Romania 5. Assumed media properties in piping system The values of pressures and temperatures present in inner water supply lines are equal to values specified in the Assembly Instructions of Ekoplastik PPR. As regards heating, the maximum temperature of heating water when using FIBER pipes is 70C.

FIBER pipes are made in these dimensions (outer diameter of the pipe): 20. 25, 32, 40, 50, 63 mm. FIBER pipes are produced in one pressure range - S 2.5 (PN 20).

6. OPERATING PARAMETERS OF FIBER PIPES WATER DISTRIBUTION The operating parameters involve the maximum operating pressure, temperature, service life and relations among them. The operating parameters and the calculation method of the service life are the same as for PN 20 all-plastic pipes and are summarized in table 1 (page 4). For the calculation the safety factor (SF) of 1.5 has been used. 7. OPERATING PARAMETERS OF FIBER PIPES HEATING The operating parameters and the calculation method of the service life are the same as for PN 20 all-plastic pipes while for heating we recommend the max. temperature of heating water of 70C. The operating parameters are summarized in table 1. For the calculation the safety factor (SF) of 1.5 has been used. 8. FIBER pipes Routing options You must ensure protection from mechanical damage of pipes, especially on non-heated premises (warehouses, open halls, etc.) as pipes are fragile at temperatures below 5C.

10. ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS 10.1. General Individual recommendations mentioned in the Ekoplastik PPR Assembly Instructions are valid for FIBER pipes as well; increased attention must be paid to protection of pipes from external impacts, especially at low ambient temperatures. 10.2. Linear expansion and contraction The difference of temperature during installation and under service conditions, i.e. a medium flows through the system at a different temperature to that prevailing during the installation period, results in linear changes - expansion or contraction (l).

Lk = 2 . l + 150 [mm] and also Lk 10.D In polypropylene applications material flexibility is used for linear compensations. Pipe bends are also used for these purposes. A suitable compensation technique is the one where the pipeline is deflected perpendicularly to the original route and a free compensating length (marked as Ls) is left at the normal line. The value of Ls compensating length will depend on calculated route extension (shortening), pipe material and diameter. The values of l linear change and Ls compensating length can also be taken from the graphs.

As compared to all-plastic PPR pipes FIBER pipes are more fragile, especially at lower temperatures than 5C. Therefore, pipes must be protected from impacts during handling, they must not be thrown, dragged on the ground and on the loading surface of a vehicle. The pipes must be stored at a temperature of at least 5C.
