PLX launches one-weld transitions

plx-one-weld-transitions-copyWe are enhancing our specialist fuel conveyance pipe system, PLX, with the launch of a new collection of ‘one-weld’ transitions for the Close-Fit range, aiding the installation process for installers, contractors and end users.

Introduced to simplify the multiple steps currently required to weld transitions, the new products allow the installer to reduce the number of welds at the end of a pipe run, making significant savings on installation time and costs.

Previously only available in 32#40mm size, the transitions are now available in sizes 50#63mm and 63#75mm in a choice of mild steel or stainless steel. The transitions utilise innovative ‘one-weld’ technology to ensure that a continuous secondary contained system is installed, by welding the inner and outer pipes in a secondary contained system at the same time. 

Ideal for time critical projects, the new transitions enhance the Close-Fit PLX range and are suitable for a wide variety of fuel transfer applications in sectors including data centres, hospitals, forecourts and water treatment plants.

Commenting on the range expansion, David Naylor, our PLX brand manager, said: “We are always looking to make the installation of our systems as simple as possible for customers and the new transitions have been developed with the installer in mind.

“The ‘one-weld technology will significantly reduce installation time, which is not only an advantage for the installer, but the end user will also benefit from the subsequent cost savings. We have already received a lot of interest in the new transitions and we are expecting them to be a popular addition to the range.”

Durapipe PLX is a below ground pipework product range specifically developed to fulfil the application needs of the forecourt market. The PLX range consists of both single wall and dual contained pipe and fittings and is purpose-designed for the safe transfer of liquid fuels and their vapours. Providing exceptional resistance to rapid crack propagation and long term stress cracking, PLX comprises a protective liner, which increases permeation resistance against many types of fuel blends ensuring there is no permeation of fuel through the pipe wall into the environment.
