Solutions for Drinking Water
Delivering clean water efficiently and safely has become a world-wide problem. Water is lost due to leakages and ageing networks. We need to improve the distribution of clean drinking water from source to tap. We will work towards these goals by raising the quality and performance of high-pressure water distribution networks, improving safety levels of indoor drinking water supply, and building towards a new (smarter) ways of managing drinking water. Most of our current products and solutions already contribute big time. The Wavin portfolio can be categorized as follows:
Press-fit Tigris K5 and Tigris M5
When carrying drinking water, the pipe is only as good as the joint. The fittings to secure joints safely, are essential. Tigris K5/M5 is the successor of the highly reated Tigris K1/M1, where the new fitting has kicked up a few notches. It is the world’s first fitting with an Acoustic Leak Alert. In a leakage test executed with air instead of water, an unpressed fitting will generate a loud and clear whistle sound ( +/- 80 dBA) for easy localization. With its increased inner bore, called Optiflow, Tigris K5/M5 now is best in class in flow performance. And for a reliable press connection, the new Tigris K5/M5 features Multijaw, which means that the fittings can now also be pressed with the most common pressing profiles like U and Up, TH, H and B. This enables installers to switch to Wavin – without switching tools and remain their system warranty.
Push fit Hep2O
Many building and refurbishment projects use a combination of different plumbing systems. In these cases, you need to be able to work easily with both copper and plastic. The Wavin Hep2O push-fit system connects securely and efficiently with both – giving maximum flexibility. It is the only push-fit plumbing system with joint recognition, secure demounting and a 50 year guarantee.
Use the Wavin PPR systems when you prefer an all plastic welded joint or when you need larger pipe diameters. Components are joined by either socket welding or electro-fusion – both of which ensure a strong homogenous bond.
Water mains Wavin TSDOQ
Water mains are the backbone for distribution of drinking water from provider to consumer. Use Wavin’s TSDOQ range when you seek maximum safety, specifically for open installations without a sand bed or trenchless methods. TSDOQ is a co-extruded three-layer PE 100-RC pressure pipe. Over 15 million meters have been installed since the year 2000.
Water mains PE 100
When you are using open-trench installation with a sand bed, the pipes you choose need no special protective properties. Use Wavin’s PE 100 double layer pipes for these traditional installations. Next to double layer pipes Wavin also offers a well-established range of PE 100 standard solid wall pipes.
Water mains renovation Compact Pipe
Choose Wavin’s Compact Pipe when digging up and replacing a worn out or defective pipe system is too disruptive and/or expensive. With over 1.5 million meters installed worldwide, Wavin Compact Pipe has proved its worth. Compact Pipe technology offers the rehabilitation of a defective system by close fit lining without having to dig up or open ground.
