Gekko Pre-insulated Pipe has a range of both aboveground and underground factory insulated piping system manufactured under stringent quality control conditions.
It is suitable for air-conditioning chilled water piping systems, process piping system and domestic hot water piping system with media temperature ranging between -50 deg. C to +140 deg. C in any environmental conditions.
It offers a high efficiency thermal insulation coupled with the ultimate vapour barrier and weather protection. The extremely robust waterproof insulation system can safely support the weight of the pipe and its contents.
Gekko Pre-insulated Pipe can therefore be hung from its outer casing thus eliminating the use of cumbersome insulated supports which are usually the potential points of vapour ingress.
Gekko Pre-insulated Pipe is available in the casing of your choice utilizing any type of service pipe required.
WIDELY USED IN OTHER PART OF THE WORLD
The pre-insulated piping system has been widely used in the European countries since the 70’s and eventually followed by the USA. It is now one of the most preferred method of insulation in the world due to its superior properties and ease of installation.
Our neighboring countries such as Singapore and Malaysia have adopted the system since the 90’s and currently their chilled water pipe system is almost 100% pre-insulated.
Gekko Pre-insulated Pipe is manufactured from three basic components. A pressure tight casing, the required service pipe and a specially formulated rigid polyurethane foam. With the use of special machine, the service pipe is centralized and at the same time the resultant annular space between the casing and service pipe is filled with this polyurethane foam. The foam expands and upon setting forms a dense homogeneous composite insulation system around the pipe.
