Brassware manufacturer, Emmeti, has recently launched the Gerpex Multi-Layer Composite Pipe, suitable for use in both domestic and commercial building work.
Designed in house, the Gerpex MLCP can be used in both traditional branch plumbing and point-to-point plumbing in conjunction with Emmeti manifold systems. It is suitable for use in both domestic and commercial buildings and is fully WRAS approved for potable water in sanitary applications.
For branch plumbing applications, the system includes high quality brass press and compression fittings, together with tooling and a full range of accessories. Gerpex pipe is also fully compatible with Emmeti’s comprehensive range of sanitary and heating manifolds for use in point-to-point installations using patented Monoblocco fittings to make the connections.
Gerpex Press Fittings have been developed to be used with Multi-Layer Composite Pipe as a clean, simple and more efficient alternative to traditional jointing methods such as soldered copper and threaded stainless fittings. With a definite press of each fitting the system will also give more confidence to the installer, developer and end user than plastic push fittings. The brass bodied fittings with double O-ring technology and combined sight hole, dialectric ring and jaw alignment collar help to ensure that the pipe is fully inserted and pressed correctly, every time.
The pipe is available in a range of sizes from 16-63mm making it ideal for both domestic and commercial applications. Gerpex MLCP is made of composite material through a technologically advanced process in which an inner layer of cross linked PE-Xb (polyethylene) pipe is bonded to a butt-welded aluminium core with outer layer of PE-Xb (up to 32mm) or PE-HD (from 40 up to 63mm). The inner aluminium layer provides rigidity, form retention, and a solid oxygen barrier to prolong the life of heating system components such as heat exchangers, pumps and radiators.
