WICU®

WICU® TUBE - THE PLASTIC-COVERED COPPER TUBE

KME WICU® IS DESIGNED TO GIVE THE TUBE PROTECTION FROM AGGRESSIVE MATERIALS AS WELL AS THE WEATHER. THE COVERING ALSO CREATES A THERMAL BARRIER WHICH REDUCES HEAT LOSS IN BURIED TUBING AND CONDENSATION FROM PIPEWORK EXPOSED TO THE COLD.

 

Characteristics

  • Certified for outdoor corrosion protection according to DIN EN 13501 Class E
  • Multi-purpose
  • The copper tube is protected against aggressive materials, accidental damage and abrasion
  • Reduced installation time
  • Condensation is reduced on exposed pipework
  • The surface temperature of the tube is reduced, reducing the risk of burns and overheating
  • The plastic covering withstands service water temperatures of up to 95°C
  • The covering remains flexible down to -60°C
  • The noise level in exposed pipework is reduced
  • The need to paint exposed pipework is reduced
  • Suitable above or below ground as outdoor piping (e.g. for LP)
  • Suitable for installation in areas with an aggressive atmosphere.

CAN BE USED

•    hot and cold water systems
•    Underground pipework, including contaminated ground
•    Pipework installed in concrete
•    Humid environments


WICU® Eco

WICU® ECO - THE THERMALLY INSULATED COPPER TUBE

THE INSULATION HAS VERY LOW THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY (WLG 026 ACCORDING TO THE GERMAN CLASSIFICATION), AND YET THE TOTAL DIAMETER REMAINS EXCEPTIONALLY SMALL, KEEPING INSTALLATIONS SIMPLE AND COMPACT.

WICU® Eco is highly suited to the distribution of hot water in sanitary plumbing and heating systems. The tube fully meets the requirements of the German Energy-Saving Directive (EnEV) without any restrictions.

The joints can also be quickly and securely insulated, using the insulation parts supplied as accessories of the WICU® Eco system.

Characteristics

  • High-quality, factory-installed heat insulation with low thermal conductivity (WLG 026).
  • The small overall outer diameter allows for compact installations.
  • Economical compared to systems insulated after installation.
  • Clean installation.
  • Includes all necessary accessories for the insulation of the joints.
  • Meets the requirements of the German Energy-Saving Directive (EnEV).
