The TECEflex pipes are permanently connected to the fittings using axial pressing technology. Only the pipe plastic is used as a seal. No additional aids such as O-rings or sealing tapes are required. The O-ring-free connection technology is very error-tolerant and especially hygienic.
To create a TECEflex technology, first the pipe must be expanded. The fitting is pushed into the prepared pipe and the sleeve is slid over the expanded pipe up to the fitting collar.
The TECEflex composite pipes are equipped with an electron beam networked PE-Xc internal pipe. The PE-Xc plastic is characterised by a particularly strong memory effect. This has the effect that the material of the expanded pipe shrinks back over the fitting nozzle. The pressure sleeve additionally secures this connection.
The advantages of the TECEflex connection technology at a glance
- error-tolerant O-ring-free connection technology
- specially hygienic connection since there are no gaps for water to stagnate in
- low pressure losses as the internal diameter of the fitting and pipe are almost the same
- the axial pressing technology comes with zero requirements for maintenance of the pressing technology Sleeve at the front - connection tight
Potable water installation
The TECEflex was accredited for its hygienic suitability for use with potable water with the DVGW approval and its long lifespan of at least 50 years was confirmed. A plus for the O-ring-free axial pressing technology: The connections are seamless and unhygienic stagnant water can´t form anywhere.
The fitting materials used are approved throughout Europe.
TECEflex is suitable for all potable water installations.
Compressed air installation
TECEflex lets you create compressed air installations up the dimension 63mm. Plastic pipes have the advantage over metal pipes that compressed air supplies in operations can be quickly adjusted to new demands.
The TECEflex is suitable for compressed air with these parameters
- Nominal pressure 16 bar
- Operating pressure 12 bar
- Maximum peak operating temperature 60°C
- Safety factor 1,3
Here the user handles the same TECEflex fittings and the same composite pipe as they do for the heating and potable water installation.
The O-ring-free connection technology means there is no restriction of the compressor oil used. TECEflex is thus an economical alternative to copper and steel.
Whether the radiator is connected from the wall or from the floor, the TECEflex range offers a solution for every application scenario. Combinded with the junction fittings, radiators can be installed efficiently.
The white composite pipes look good mounted or in manifold installations. Remnants or offcuts can be used in other trades, e.g. potable water installations.
TECEflex is DIN CERTCO certified for heating installation.
With the appearance of the TRGI 2008, TECEflex can also be used in interior gas installations:
- Relocation of complete home gas installations up to 100 mbar
- TECEflex composite pipe in yellow signal colour
- same metal fittings as for potable water, heating and compressed air installations, so no risk of confusion.
The gas lines can be laid without fiting from the roll through the shafts and cavities without the need for these to be ventilated. This makes TECEflex particularly interesting for the connection of attic heating centres and the simplified design support from TECE makes planning easier.
