LOGSTOR Industry's pre-insulated pipe systems were originally developed for transport of district heating, which is one of the most prevalent form of energy for heating of houses and industrial buildings today. The pre-insulated pipe with its unique insulation has also gained ground in the industry for transport of water and steam for heating, primarily due to its good insulation properties and the long service life, but the use of pre-insulated pipes from LOGSTOR Industry in the industrial sector is also advantageous for many other reasons.
A correct assembly with LOGSTOR Industry's joints ensures a 100% watertight system. The system is free of corrosion and has a long service life.
LOGSTOR Industry can supply a complete product range of pre-insulated heating pipes for buried as well as freely suspended pipe installation.
Our district heating division has developed products and joints specifically for buried systems. This system is based on more than 40 years of experience with sale and production of district heating pipes.
The district heating system applies to media of temperatures ranging from 0°C to 140°C, typically in connection with district heating water and steam. The system consists of polyurethane and has unique insulation properties that ensure low operation costs.
District heating pipes are available as straight or flexible pipes. The material of the straight carrier pipe is composed of St. 37.0 BW, PEX and copper. There are three types of carrier pipes for flexible pipes: Steel-Flex, PEX and copper.
Above ground installation of the pipe system offers the possibility of laying the heating pipe on tubular bridges or in trenches. It is very advantageous to choose pre-insulated pipes from LOGSTOR Industry here, too, as the jacket and the insulation are solid and can resist mechanical influences from the movements of the pipe or impacts from the surrounding environment.
The complete program of joints makes the installation quick and easy. Pipe supports can be installed on the outer surface of the jacket.
Pipe supports that pass through the insulation and are fixed on the steel pipe itself cause great energy losses and penetration of moisture in the insulation. The construction of pre-insulated pipes allows pipe supports to be installed on the outer surface of the jacket in order to avoid unnecessary energy loss.
