Stainless Steel Pipe
This is a 304 Steel, this is the sort of steel that is used in Cooking pans, sinks, fridges, tabletops etc. This type of steel is one of the most frequently used types of steel. It is used widely in food processing equipment, in particular in the brewing industry for beer and wine. In short it is used a lot and is good for fluid applications.
There are other types of flexible steel pipe available that use 316 Steel. 316 Steel has a higher strength and wear resistance and is typically used in Marine environments.
We can also supply a 316 grade flexible steel pipe however it is a higher costs and is not necessary for the solar applications.
Time and Cost Savings
This flexible steel pipe is 50ft long and comes in two roles per cartono.
It is a twin hose for your supply and return line.
It has the sensor cable built in.
To run a normal copper line will take the following steps
Buy 2 x 50ft rolls of copper (approx cost $110 each) = $220
Buy 50ft Cable = Approx $25
Buy 100 ft (50ft supply and 50ft Return of EPDM Insulation) = Approc $5.5 Per foot = $550
Total so Far = $795
begin the install..... count the hours to do all this.
Run one roll of copper don't forget it is stiff and takes a good effort to run it where you want!
Run the second roll of copper.
Attach the EPDM Insulation (it is in 6ft lengths) to each pipe and secure with tie wraps.
Stop to bandage all you knuckles up after you scrape your skin trying to wrap the insulation and tie wrap it under the floor or behind drywall.
Run the wire / temperature sensor and secure it to the insulation.
Remember all this pipe and insulation is likely behind dry wall, under floor boards etc - very time consuming!
Cover the outside of the Insulation with UV resistant coating to stop the sun ruining the insulation or the birds pecking at it!
