the new generation of pre-insulated flexible pipe system

FibreFlex Pro is a cutting-edge pre-insulated, flexible pipe which combines a high modulus aramid mesh reinforcement with modern polymer materials in a multi-layer pipe construction. This significantly improved structure allows plastic pipes to be used at high operating pressures of up to 10 bar and operating temperatures of up to 115°C continuous (peak temperature), making FibreFlex Pro the ideal alternative pipe solution to rigid pre-insulated steel pipes commonly found in city heat networks. The FibreFlex Pro pipes are insulated in one continuous manufacturing process using a CFC-free bonded polyurethane foam with an outstanding thermal conductivity value of l≤0.021 W/mK at 50°C. As the insulation layer has a lower thermal conductivity than conventional pre-insulated steel pipes (l=0.027 W/mK), in diameters up to 80 mm, FibreFlex Pro heat loss is lower than insulation series S3 pipes and in larger diameters, FibreFlex Pro heat loss is lower than series S2 pipes.
