Everyone knows its products and uses them almost every day: VARTA AG is Germany's most traditional battery company. With around 4,000 employees and representatives in over 75 countries, it is also one of the largest manufacturers of batteries in the world. During the expansion of its production facilities in Ellwangen (headquarters), in Baden-Württemberg and in Nördlingen, about 40 kilometres away, the company was looking for a piping system that could be used for refrigeration piping, as well as for compressed air and vacuum lines, which could also be installed safely and in a time-saving manner. The solution was offered by aquatherm GmbH.
In various building complexes, a total of about 5000 metres of aquatherm blue fibre-reinforced piping system was used in dimensions from 32 to 450 mm. "In aquatherm, we have found a partner we can trust in all areas of piping," explains Markus Egetenmeier, Head of Facility Services at VARTA. "The material is excellently suited for the use of the refrigeration, vacuum and compressed air lines, and the choice of dimensioning up to 500 mm is ideal for us."
