SANHA introduces new pipe dimension 168.3 mm

SANHA is introducing a new dimension of pipes and fittings to its existing stainless steel series. While both systems – NiroSan and NiroTherm – already provide installers with a large and flexible range of pipes and fittings including for example tees, couplings, elbows, flanges or wall plates between 15 – 108 mm, the new addition complements the portfolio. With the two XXL dimensions 139.7 and 168.3 mm, even very large risers can be easily realised, for example in high-rise buildings.

“With this latest addition to our portfolio and the introduction of dimension 168 mm earlier in 2020, we can fully cover the demands for larger piping, for example risers in tall buildings”, explains Mathias Van den Broeck, Product & Business Development Manager at SANHA. The demand has been growing in the past years in many parts of the world and are expected to grow even further.

Both dimensions are introduced in two types of material. “In this way, we give our customers the opportunity to choose the most suitable and economically advantageous system, depending on the application.”

Premium stainless steel 1.4404 / AISI 316L

All NiroSan® press fittings and pipes are made from the premium stainless steel type 1.4404 / AISI 316L (for pressing components). The material 1.4404 contains at least 2.3 % molybdenum, yet less carbon than the conventional type 1.4401. For this reason material no 1.4404/316L is a superior material with higher corrosion resistance than standard stainless steels. This is mainly an advantage in critical applications, such as drinking water installations.

NiroTherm stainless 1.4301 / AISI 304: Optimal alternative to carbon steel

The NiroTherm fittings and pipes are produced from the material 1.4301 (AISI 304). The system offers a safe and reliable solution, especially in humid environments, without the risk of external corrosion and thus offers an excellent alternative to carbon steel systems. Thanks to the high corrosion resistance, there are large savings in personnel and material costs for the insulation against humidity. Furthermore, NiroTherm is also an ideal solution for compressed air systems and for cooling applications with glycol and similar media.
