DriscoPlex - Model 5300 - Climate Guard Systems
DriscoPlex 5300 Series Climate Guard® high-density polyethylene pipe and fittings are a quality piping system for closed-loop, earth-coupled heat pump applications. DriscoPlex® 5300 Series Climate Guard® pipe and fittings are the system of choice for residential, commercial, institutional and industrial installations. Performance Pipe offers a complete system of DriscoPlex® 5300 pressure-rated pipe and fittings that meet applicable IGSHPA and ASTM specifications and requirements.
Economical - Easy to join, lightweight and flexible to help reduce construction and installation costs.
Tough and Durable - Excellent impact and abrasion resistance. Pressure ratings based on long-term tests. Exceptional resistance to slow crack growth and environmental stress cracking.
Ductile and Flexible - Flexible DriscoPlex® 5300 Climate Guard® Series pipe follows the 'lay of the land' to ease trench and down hole installation.
Resistant to Chemicals and Corrosion - Excellent resistance to most chemical compounds and aggressive soils.
Thermally Conductive - DriscoPlex® 5300 Climate Guard® pipe offers high strength PE 4710 to minimize pipe wall thickness and maximize heat transfer.
Leak-Tight Joining - Long, continuous coils or straight lengths reduce joining requirements. Properly made heat fusion joints are as strong as the pipe itself and do not leak.
Excellent Hydraulics - DriscoPlex® 5300 Climate Guard® pipe offers high volume flows with low flow resistance. The hydraulically smooth, non-wetting surface provides excellent flow properties. A Hazen-Williams C-factor of l50-155 is typically used to estimate flow resistance. DriscoPlex® 5300 Climate Guard® pipe does not rust, rot, corrode, tuberculate or support biological growth.
