Choosing the best pipes for your chilled water system

Selecting the right one can feel like wading through a cold fog. Fear not, for The Pipe Company is here to help you navigate the frosty waters and choose the perfect conduits for your chilled system:

1. Copper: Durable, an excellent heat transfer, and resistance to corrosion.

2. Stainless steel: Unmatched strength, corrosion resistance, and weld-ability, makes it ideal for demanding applications. 

3. Carbon steel: A budget-friendly choice with decent durability and heat transfer. 


4. Polyethylene (PE): Lightweight and adaptable, chemical resistant and flexible.


5. Cross-linked polyethylene (PEX): Temperature resistant and flexible.



The ideal choice hinges on several factors

  • Budget: Cost plays a critical role, but remember, upfront savings might translate to higher long-term expenses due to maintenance or shorter lifespans.

  • System demands: Consider factors like operating pressure, temperature range, and specific fluid compatibility.

  • Installation challenges: Flexibility and ease of installation might be crucial in scenarios with complex layouts or tight spaces.

  • Sustainability: Opt for eco-friendly materials with high recyclability whenever possible.
