District Heating System Expansion with Reinforced Crosslinked Polyethelyne (PEX R) Piping

06-30-2017 12:38

Summary

With long piping spools and streamlined joint connections, Crosslinked Polyethelyne Piping (PEX-R) has the potential to significantly reduce the installed cost for distribution networks.  In fall 2016, with KWL as the engineer and Division 15 Mechanical as installer, PEX-R piping was tested on a short expansion of the City of Vancouver’s South East False Creek system. Through this pilot project we saw the benefits of PEX-R and encountered some unexpected challenges. This presentation explores the lessons learned and discusses how PEX-R may fit in the future of district energy.
