Use in a research vessel 

The research vessel “Snow Dragon 2”, built at the Jiang Nan shipyard in China, was designed for Antarctic expeditions. The corrosion-resistant piping system aquatherm green pipe was used for potable water, and aquatherm blue pipe for the ship’s grey and black water system. During the renovation of the sister ship “Snow Dragon 1”, aquatherm products also replaced existing metal pipes in the areas of potable water as well as grey and black water.

aquatherm green pipe has revolutionized the plastic piping sector and has proven its technical suitability worldwide for decades. The innovative green pipe from aquatherm is made of corrosion-resistant, chemically inert polypropylene. It is completely free of heavy metals and toxic chemicals and thus ideally suited for potable water applications. It is joined using reliable heat fusion, which eliminates the hazards of welding and creates virtually leak-free connections.

aquatherm blue pipe is characterized by its high temperature capacity and pressure resistance. It is joined via reliable heat fusion, which produces a virtually leak-free and cohesive unit with excellent safety and durability. aquatherm blue pipe combined with aquatherm green pipe fittings provides all the technology and components required for the piping installation of for example industrial applications.
