Complex and mostly buried pipe systems are required to ensure reliable supplies of heat energy over large distances. The medium pipes used for this application must meet high standards and withstand severe mechanical stressing.
The pipes are thermally insulated with polyurethane foam or mineral wool. Sensor lead wires enable leaks to be reliably detected and located.
External protection is ensured by a jacket pipe. In many cases, plastic-coated steel pipe is used for this purpose.
Competently serving the European district heating pipe industry, Mannesmann Line Pipe supplies both medium and jacket pipes for this demanding application as well as for district cooling. The downstream processing steps are then carried out by the relevant system manufacturers.
