Aquatherm’s polypropylene-random (PP-R) piping systems now feature a straight, threadless transition from PP-R pipe to copper sweated connections. This new transition allows for installations to be more easily fitted out entirely in PP-R, particularly on commercial and industrial plumbing applications using Aquatherm.
Now with straight Aquatherm-to-copper stub-outs, which come in .5-in, .75-in, and 1-in diameters, and are 11-in, 11-in, 18–in long respectively, installers can easily transition to a fancoil unit, zone valve, heat pump, or other HVAC components with sweated connections using PP-R. Aquatherm teamed up with Sioux Chief Manufacturing to create this new stub-out, which the company says represents a more mainstream transition method for copper sweated connections.
