System KAN-therm Press - Characeristics
System KAN‑therm Press is a modern, complete installation system consisting of composite polyethylene pipes with aluminum layer and plastic PPSU or brass fittings with a diameter range between 16–63 mm. All fittings with 16–40 mm diameters have a new, unique "LBP" design, combining a number of innovative solutions to improve comfort and safety of installation and to ensure proper connections. This ensures that all components of System KAN‑therm Press makes up the only unique installation system on the market.
System application :
System KAN‑therm Press is designed for internal plumbing systems, central heating and cooling systems, all kinds of surface (floors and walls), heating, and cooling systems for outdoor areas (playing fields and ice rinks) and various, industrial systems (e.g. compressed air)
System components :
System KAN‑therm Press offers two types of pipes:
multilayer polyethylene PE-RT/Al/PE-RT (14-40 mm) or PE-Xc/Al/PE-Xc (50-63 mm) with aluminium insert
homogeneous polyethylene pipes PE‑RT and PE‑Xc
Homogeneous polyethylene pipes come in two material varieties, with different types of base inner and outer layer
PE‑RT/Al/PE‑RT pipes (diameter range of 14–40 mm)
PE‑X/Al/PE‑X pipes (50–63 mm).
All fittings in the diameter range between 16–63 mm have a new, unique design Press LBP that provides a number of additional features:
LBP System* (Leak Before Press) with this function, unclamped connections already start leaking during filling installation with water (no need to generate pressure) – in accordance with the guidelines of the DVGW. This allows for quick and easy location of unclamped joints, even in very difficult working conditions.
Each fitting with a diameter of 16–40 mm has a special plastic ring, whose color depends on the diameter of the connection. This makes it easier to identify fittings and speeds up work at constructionsites and in warehouses.
A new generation of Press LBP fittings features a special design to allow the use of multilayer PE‑RT/Al/PE‑RT pipes or homogeneous PE‑Xc, PE‑RT pipes.
