Originally Wirsbo PEX Tubing. Now Uponor
Uponor or aquapex is the best piping there is and the only pipe we use for plumbing. It is by far Superior to any other pex or pro pex pipe applications made. Its versatility and Superior strength is outstanding and I really don’t understand why all other companies are not using it. Well I say that but the reason is that regular crimp type pex is a whole lot faster to install but it is inferior in every way to the Uponor. You have to be a licensed contractor to install the Uponor. To buy the tool, that is around $400 you have be a licensed Master or the manufacturer will not sell it to you.
Uponor Piping tool. This tool is used to expand the Uponor or aquapex piping. $400 before tax and requires Licensed Master plumber to purchase and use. It also has to be used in a certain way or it will not make the connections correctly. If you attend the Uponor seminar and are a licensed Master Uponor warranties their piping and fittings for 25 years.
History of Wirsbo PEX Tubing
It was 1968 when Thomas Engel invented the process that produced chemically cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) piping. This was considered virtually impossible by most heating engineer experts, The Wirsbo Co. was using Thomas Engle’s technology to develop the best manufacturing process for producing PEX piping. The cross-linked PEX piping was introduced in the over seas European floor radiant heating in 1972 and in the potable water in 1973. The PEX piping has solved numbers of problems that occur with the copper or metal water pipes and some other types of plastic piping. The PEX piping does not corrode or erode, and is immune to all of the problems with piping that come with the hard water that damages copper or metal pipes. The piping has a rating of 180 degrees F and 100 psi. The Wirsbo piping will also have the highest polymer oxygen diffusion barrier of any piping world wide, according to the company.
The growth through the years of the cross-linked polyethylene piping has been astounding in the over seas European market. Today over 80 % of all connections are made with PEX tubing, We at Academy Disc Plumbing & Repair and our guys prefer it to any other piping and in some countries its well over 50 %. In Europe and over seas, where radiant floor heating system are installed in over 50 % of new construction, PEX piping goes into approximately 70 % of all construction .
The Wirsbo-PEX piping was introduced to the U.S. markets in 1985 by Tomas Lenman. is now the director of technology at The Wirsbo Co. Apple Valley, Minn, Tomas Lenman was a leading member of all of the engineering teams that developed the products in the 1970s and today, the PEX piping is used for floor heating and many other heating applications also.
