Krauss Maffei Berstorff worked in close collaboration with Poloplast GmbH, a leading German plastic pipe manufacturer to develop a special pipe for manufacturing featuring a 5-layer PP-R pipes with fiberglass reinforcement.
Both the material composition and the layered structure of the PP-R pipes are innovations. The standout property of PP-R pipes with fiberglass reinforcement lies in the low degree of elongation and bending - this gives the pipe a stiffness that is many times higher, which in turn provides advantages when laying pipe
The KME 45-30 B/R main extruder, which features the KM-5L RKW 94-250 pipe head for producing the PP-R intermediate layer, is closely surrounded by four co-extruders from the same series, arranged in a half-circle, as well as the KME 20-25 B/R co-extruder for applying stripes. This set-up lets the machine operator control and monitor production from a central position. In addition, the pipe head features energy-efficient IPC (Internal Pipe Cooling), which ensures precise heat balance for thick-walled pipes.
The standout property of PP-R pipes with fiberglass reinforcement lies in the low degree of elongation and bending. This gives the pipe a stiffness that is many times higher, which in turn provides advantages when laying pipe. The pipes are very frequently installed so that they are exposed under suspended ceilings – especially in public buildings.
