The Challenge

Designers sought a single pipe system for potable, water treatment, wastewater, hydronic and compressed air systems in sizes from ½-inch to 12-inch. It also needed to meet NSF 61 and handle high heat and pressure.

The Solution

Green Pipe and Blue Pipe were specified to meet all the above-listed applications at the prison, providing a much lighter weight, noncorrosive alternative, while also being a more environmentally friendly option.

“The fact that Aquatherm didn’t have to be insulated and metal-jacketed made a big difference. In a wastewater or industrial facility where you have high moisture content, that’s a big deal. We didn’t have to insulate anything and it has such a clean look.”

-Jeff Oliver, Chief Executive Manager, Southcentral Mechanical
