    Aquatherm Advantages
    • Aquatherm was nearly a single-source pipe, installed in sizes ranging from 1-in.to 12-in., and above ground, underground, indoors, and outdoors (mostly painted to avoid cross contamination).
    • Aquatherm pipe is affordable, especially compared to ductile iron.
    • Aquatherm’s natural sound insulation makes it quieter than ductile iron pipes.
    • Heat fusion connects Aquatherm pipe at the molecular level meaning Carrollton facility managers have peace of mind because their pipe systems are leak-resistant.

The Challenge

Plant designers wanted a cost-effective, long-lasting, and leak-free pipe system that could handle transporting everything from grit and sludge to compressed air.

The Solution

Plant designers selected Aquatherm pipe to transport various materials including CIP (Clean-in-place), vent, effluent, and exhaust lines.

“We haven’t had any problems with it [Aquatherm] at all. We did have a freezing situation where the schedule 80 PVC burst, but the Aquatherm didn’t.”

-Roy Ford, Plant Supervisor
