PIPES:

up

 

AHE is invented and patented by our China’s Company. The pipe's construction is Aluminum Alloy which is lined with inner pipe of food-grade Polypropylene (PP-R) plastics material. The piping system can be used for cold and heated water supply systems; both above ground and below ground. Our piping system is cheaper, stronger, lighter, more durable and more environmentally friendly than other similar piping systems in the world today.

 

FITTINGS:

up

 


AHE pipes are jointed together by magnalium alloy fittings with the same plastic materials PP-R. Water passes through inside the PP-R and does not come in contact with any outer pipe content. Hence we guarantee cleanliness and quality.

Features
Benefits

Metallic Aluminum Alloy Pipe outer

High mechanical strength, corrosion resistant, good aesthetic appearance

Lined with food grade Polypropylene

Clean, non-toxic contact with drinking water provides corrosion resistant barrier

Mechanical fitting system

Fast connecting with a spanner only, no special tools required - overall savings of at least 20% of installation cost in time, labour and transportation in comparing with other metallic piping systems

Tough and strong

- unbreakable by any laboratory equipment during testing

More durable (guarantee 50 years)

Further savings in the long run

Roll Grooving system

Fast connecting, proven system

Connection with other piping systems

- compatible

Flexible, effective and cost savings through connectors or victaulic jointing fittings

Multiple usage

Can be used in water, gas, ship building, food manufacture, fire sprinkler system, industrial piping systems and irrigation systems etc.

 

COMPARISON WITH OTHER PIPING SYSTEMS IN A SIMILAR APPLICATION:

Attribute
Metallic Piping Systems i.e. Copper, Stainless Steel
Plastic Piping Systems i.e. PVC, Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP)
Cost

We are approximately 1/3 of the price of copper and 1/2 of the price of stainless steel. Longer life span means further cost savings in the long run.

The system would be more expensive than plastic systems smaller sizes but comparable at larger sizes.

Environmentally
Friendly

No rust, no corrosion and little chance of contamination, water remains in the inner PP pipe only. Guarantee life span of at least 50 years.

The system is more durable and hence creating less rubbish.

Weight

We are approximately 1/2 of the weight of copper and 1/3 of the weight of stainless steel.

The system would be of comparable weight to plastics systems.

Installation
Cost

Easy to install (with a spanner only) and no need to weld. Further savings on labour and transport cost due to light weight.

Comparable at smaller sizes and expected to be lower for larger sizes.

Thermal
Resistance

Due to the plastic lining the system would have more superior insulation properties than metallic systems.

The system would be comparable in terms of insulation properties with plastics systems.

Mechanical
Strength

The system has equivalent mechanical strength to comparable metallic systems.

The system has more superior mechanical strength than plastics systems.

Noise
Resistance

Due to the plastic lining the system would have better superior acoustics than metallic systems.

Acoustics would be comparable to plastics systems.

Appearance

The system has comparable aesthetic appearance to comparable metallic systems, more superior than copper.

The system has superior better aesthetic appearance than plastics systems.

Impact

The product would have comparable impact resistance to comparable metallic systems.

Due to the metallic structure the product would have more superior impact resistance than plastics.

 

COMPARISON WITH OUR AHE PIPES AGAINST GALVANISED STEEL PIPES

AHE PIPES
GALVANISED STEEL PIPES

Aluminum alloy based

Iron based

Light weight - about 1/3 of the weight of stainless steel pipes

Much heavier

About 1/2 of the price of steel pipes

Cheaper but less durable and more costly in the long run.

Do not get rust, no contamination and no corrosion - good for health

Get rust, contamination and corrosion - bad for health

More environmentally friendly

Not environmentally friendly

Starting to be used extensively in modern cities

Banned in modern cities but still used in remote areas

Strong in nature

Guarantee life time of at least 50 years

About 10 years

The plastic lining has better insulation

No insulation

The plastic lining has superior acoustics

Bad acoustics

Easy to transport and install due to light weight - hence saving cost

More costly

Time and labour saving cost of at least 20%

More costly
