Rehau gears up for All-Energy 2019

Polymer specialist Rehau is all set to exhibit at this year’s All-Energy show, taking place at the SEC Glasgow from 15-16 May. Rehau will be showcasing a wide range of its award-winning products that customers can use to install reliable, low carbon heating systems.

On stand C41, Rehau will be showcasing its solutions for district heating, including the pre-insulated Rauvitherm and Rauthermex pipes. Also on stand will be a range of products suitable for modern buildings, large multi-occupancy or commercial projects. The Rehau team will be on-hand to provide information and guidance to visitors about these products; the Rautitan and Raupiano pipework and the new Smart Plumbing Manifold.

Rauvitherm is a PE-Xa pipe suitable for use in district heating, biomass, biogas and heat pump applications. It is said to have excellent flexibility due to its corrugated outer jacket, and it uses Rehau’s jointing technology to guarantee no leaks. Available in UNO (single pipe) and DUO (two pipes) variations, Rauvitherm is the only PE-Xa district heating pipe manufactured in the UK which saves an estimated 29% on Co2 emissions annually.

Rauthermex is also suited to a variety of low carbon heat installations and features high performance PU foam, which makes it ideal for large district heating installations over long distances where minimising heat losses is critical. The lightweight pipe offers huge advantages over traditional steel pipework due to the speed and ease of installation.

Steve Richmond, head of marketing and technical at Rehau Building Solutions, said: “We are excited to be heading to All-Energy for the fourth time this year. The event always provides an opportunity to engage with industry professionals, energy suppliers and developers who are interested in building low carbon heating systems. Our products offer customers undeniable quality and reliability that will leave a lasting legacy on site and for years to come. We look forward to taking visitors through the details of them at the event this year.”

The flexible PE-Xa Rautitan pipework system delivers on durability, corrosion-resistance and ease of installation. It is available as a standard PE-Xa pipe, but also a multilayer PE-Xa pipe. It is fully WRAS certified as hygienic for drinking water and its smooth surface prevents deposits forming while cavity-free impermeable joints eliminate the risk of microbial contamination. It is ideal for large multi-occupancy or commercial projects as an alternative to traditional materials.

Another product suited to the high-rise occupancy market is the Rehau Smart Link Plumbing Manifold. The modular design makes it a flexible product, while the use of superior materials including PPSU ball valves guarantees a hardwearing, reliable manifold that installers can rely on.

Rehau will also be featuring its brand-new acoustic soil and waste solution – Raupiano, which launched in September 2018. The Raupiano product offers 17dB acoustic performance, 120-minute fire protection, high chemical-resistance and a 2-bar rated push-fit jointing system.

All-Energy is an annual event that seeks to enable the UK renewable energy community to interact, conduct business, network and learn, whether face-to-face or online. Held in Scotland every year, the event connects over 300 energy suppliers, developers, investors, technology developers and policy-makers with 7,000+ energy industry buyers.
