Aquatherm’s latest offering is a thinner version of its 4” blue pipe. It delivers roughly a 20 percent higher flow volume than SDR 11, but at a lower cost and 35 percent less weight. Appropriate for hydronics, geothermal systems, cooling, air compression and industrial applications, Blue Pipe boasts advantages over PVC and other piping alternatives: it’s lightweight, non-corrosive, durable and fully recyclable. All Aquatherm pipe is made from Fusiolen polypropylene, a chemically stable compound that won’t leach into water.
