The Gerpex system has been designed for use with hot and cold water, heating, chilled water and compressed air sytems.
Gerpex Multi-Layer Composite Pipe can be used in both traditional branch plumbing and point to point plumbing in conjunction with Emmeti manifold systems. It is suitable for use in both domestic and commercial projects and is fully WRAS approved for use in hot and cold water supplies.
For branch plumbing applications, the system includes high quality metal press and compression fittings, together with tooling and a full range of accessories. Gerpex MLCP is also fully compatible with the Emmeti range of hot and cold water and heating manifolds for use in point to point installations using the patented Emmeti Monoblocco compression fittings.
The wide range of pipe sizes, fittings, accessories and various fastening options make the Gerpex system a complete and highly reliable solution for any project.
Gerpex Multi-Layer Composite Pipe (MLCP) is the optimum solution for modern building projects offering all of the advantages of both plastic and metal pipes combined with excellent value for money and peace of mind. Gerpex can be used in a wide range of applications including hot and cold water systems, heating (wall hung radiator and underfloor heating), chilled water and compressed air. The pipe is available in a range of sizes from 16-63mm making it ideal for both domestic and commercial applications.
Gerpex Multi-Layer Composite Pipe is made of composite material through a technologically advanced process in which an inner layer of cross-linked PE-Xb (polyethylene) pipe is bonded to a butt welded aluminium core with outer layer of PE-Xb (up to 32mm) or PE-HD (from 40 up to 63mm). This production process is what gives Gerpex its high temperature and pressure characteristics. The internal aluminium layer provides rigidity, form retention and a solid oxygen barrier to prevent internal corrosion of heating system components such as heat exchangers, pumps and radiators.
The products are fully WRAS approved for use with hot and cold water systems and the range includes coils up to 500m, 4m straight bars and insulated coils
Gerpex press fittings have been developed to be used with multi-layer composite pipe as a clean, simple and more efficient alternative to traditional jointing methods such as soldered copper and threaded steel fittings. The positive sealing action of the press system will also give greater confidence to the installer, developer and end user than push fittings.
The brass bodied fittings with double o-ring technology, combined sight hole, dialectric ring and jaw alignment collar help to ensure that the pipe is fully inserted and pressed correctly, every time.
A range of pressing tools and jaws to suit 16mm up to 63mm with multi-profile compatible tooling. Also included are pipe preparation, cutting and bending tools. Includes battery operated, REMS Mini and Akku-Press as well as replacement jaws.
