Vee-Tite is a gasketed coupling FRP piping system featuring a high flow, corrosion free service for condensate, low temperature hot water, dual temperature, or chilled water service. Vee-Tite is a lightweight, easy to install, energy efficient quality piping system. The carrier pipe is a filament wound epoxy pipe with a resin rich liner. The system is produced with a grooved bronze FRP coupling containing high temperature rubber ‘V’ rings. Insulation is a thermally efficient polyurethane foam with a ‘K’ factor of 0.16 at 70ºF. The heavy wall PVC or HDPE casing and heat resistant end seals keep the insulation dry.
The piping system is non-corrosive and maintains very high flow rate characteristics. It is an excellent choice for underground district heating, dual temperature lines, and geothermal heating systems.
Fittings are uninsulated FRP designed to be used with the carrier pipe. Fittings have a bell to match the tapered spigot end of the pipe. The pipe fittings are joined with adhesive and may require heat curing. A complete line of fittings are available for the Vee-Tite system.
The Vee-Tite joint provides for expansion and contraction through the use of a pre-insulated FRP coupling. The joint compensates for expansion, contraction, and earth movement.
