Differences between PEX Non-Barrier, PEX/EVOH Oxygen Barrier and PEX-AL-PEX tubing(from KAIDE Pipe Extrusion Line)

China WeiFang Kaide Plastics Machinery Co.,ltd certification
We are planning to place of the order of the 5th line from KAIDE. The machine is running very well, the most important is their after-sales service, the good company.

—— SUN-WATER IRRIGATION LTD

The high speed PP-R Pipe production line, with high running speed 40m/min, and it can save huge energy consumption, only 200KW/Ton. KAIDE is the good choice for high speed production line.

—— RIFENG GROUP

We have lines PB Pipe machine, PE-RT Pipe Machine, Oxygen barrier pipe machine. The line was deliveried since from 2007 year, they all still in good running conditions.

—— PLUMBFAST

The high speed PE-RT production machine, 50m/min, with fully automatic winding machine,observaly improving the working efficiency, and the running performance is beyond of our expectation .

Non-Barrier PEX overview

 

 

Flexible, economical and easy to install, non-barrier PEX tubing (PEX plumbing pipe) is a #1 alternative to copper and CPVC rigid piping for residential and commercial potable and non-potable water plumbing applications.

 

 

Oxygen Barrier PEX overview

 

External coating of oxygen barrier PEX tubing effectively prevents diffusion of oxygen molecules into the water through walls of the pipe. This feature prevents corrosion of cast iron components in the system (circulator pumps, air purgers, fill valves, boiler heating elements, etc.) and allows using it in hot water hydronic heating applications, including baseboard/radiator heating, fan coils, radiant floor heating and snow melting applications.

 

 

PEX-AL-PEX overview

 

The main and most distinctive feature of PEX-AL(Aluminum)-PEX is the internal layer of aluminum, “sandwiched” between two layers of PEX. This layer adds memory feature to the tubing and allows it to retain the shape to which it was bent. Memory feature is very useful in all PEX project types and allows for a 1-person installation. Aluminum layer also provides an oxygen diffusion barrier with no need for additional coatings. Pressure ratings of PEX-AL-PEX are also higher than that of the regular PEX.
