PEXLINK – PEX-A-PIPE PRODUCTION IN PERFECTION.

In this revolutionary process everything merges seamlessly to bring the PEX-a pipe production with a fully automated guaranteed cross-linking technique to a new dimension, in view of profitability and reliability. During this complex and sophisticated process the pipe’s inner values represent a particular challenge. Besides the first-class product quality PEXLINK guarantees the safe handling of the reactive fluid in accordance with ATEX 95a regulations. The one-stage process which is based on innovative infrared technology is continuously monitored and the cross-linking degree is permanently controlled. The user-friendly control unit and the highly precise dosing and mixing processes permit the development and optimization of own recipes. 
Your benefits: guaranteed crosslinking, maximum line speed and more flexibility.
