KiTEC is an aluminium and polyethylene composite that combines the best features of both materials to form a pipe.
KiTEC Pipe is an aluminium and polyethylene composite that combines the best features of both materials to form a pipe that is light, strong and does not support corrosion. By combining the two materials along with adhesive layers, KiTEC pipe avoids the unaccepted thermal expansion and deformation of plastic pipe. At the same time it retains the flexibility, frost resistance and ease of use associated with plastic.
The unique feature of KiTEC is its malleability. KiTEC permanently holds whatever shape it is formed into and does not need additional clips or brackets to retain the shape of bends or curves. KiTEC is easily formed into curves, sets by hand and only requires bending springs when forming tight bends down to radius equivalent to 5 times the diameter of pipe.
Soluble encrustants, such as calcium carbonate do not readily precipitate onto the smooth walls of KiTEC pipes. In addition there is no reduction in flow areas and flow coefficients as the pipes age.
KiTEC is hygienic, non-toxic, rust free and eliminates growth of microorganisms. This avoids contamination to water. KiTEC pipe has passed all tests of pipe for potable water in accordance with British Standard BS 6920 by the British Water Quality Center.
Jointing and type of fittings: KiTEC pipes are joined by using the fittings with internal or external/end sealing arrangement having screw type compression or crimped rings.
v Brass Internal sealing fittings
v Composite Internal Sealing fittings
v Brass crimp fittings up to 25 MM OD pipes
v Composite crimp fittings up to 25 MM OD pipes
Associated Fittings: All the fittings necessary for piping applications are available.
Male Thread Connector: Male threaded fittings are used for connecting KiTEC pipes with various piping system accessories having BSP female threads such as valves.
Female Threaded Fittings: Female threaded fittings are used for connecting KiTEC pipes with various piping system accessories having BSP male threads such as taps, mixers. Female thread connector is having threaded end in the same line as pipe. Female thread elbow is having the threaded end at right angle with pipe. Female branch tee is having threaded end at right angle and used for an outlet on running pipe line.
KiTEC Connection Fittings: KiTEC pipes can be bent with radius as 5 times the OD of pipe and stay in shape. Hence elbows are generally not required. However, in some cases elbows can not be avoided.
Straight coupler, equal tee and equal elbow are available for all sizes.
