Can underfloor heating pipe be used for radiator central heating?
Emmeti’s range of PE-Xa and PE-Xc is suitable to be used in general heating applications, with maximum operating temperatures of 95oC and 90oC respectively. Our Gerpex range is the most suitable for high temperature radiator applications due to its maximum operating temperature of 95oCWhat is the difference between PE-Xa, PE-Xb and PE-Xc?
PE-Xa, PE-Xb and PE-Xc are all made of cross linked polyethylene. The a, b and c identify the manufacturing method, a: Peroxide method, b: Silane method and c: Irradiation method. All are suitable for wet UFH applications. PE-Xa tends to be the most flexible, kinks may be repaired with a heat gun but has a lower bursting pressure than PE-Xb. PE-Xb tends to have the greatest resistance to oxidation, highest bursting pressure, although kinks must be cut out. PE-Xc is the most environmentally friendly to manufacture although is the least resistant to kinks.
