Super Temp-Tite is the most advanced steam transfer system available today. It combines steel pipe with calcium silicate and polyurethane foam insulation inside a corrosion resistant fiberglass casing. A unique slip-joint provides quick and easy installation and a “built-in” expansion system. The “thermofoam” insulation increases energy savings over conventional systems. Super Temp-Tite meets Federal Guide Specifications for steam.
Super Temp-Tite is supplied with pre-insulated fittings customed made to meet job requirements. Pre-insulated fittings are produced with the same carrier, insulation, casing, and rubber end seals as the pre-insulated straight sections.
Super Temp-Tite® Joint
The Super Temp-Tite system is joined by a bronze coupling containing a teflon seal and a high temperature Aflas O-ring. The seals and ring are restrained in machined grooves on both sides of the coupling. A refractory composite block is bonded to the casing that locks the coupling in place. Expansion and contraction is automatically provided for at each coupling.
Super Temp-Tite advantages:
- No expansion loops or devices: Expansion and contraction is automatically provided for in each coupling. This relieves stress eliminating the need for other expansion loops and elbows.
- Isolated sections and continuous pipe support: No through metal contact between lengths, isolates carrier pipe corrosion. Rubber end seals and fiberglass casing prevent ground water infiltration. Super-Temp-Tite conforms to Federal “Water Spread Limiting” requirements. A WSL system limits ground water infiltration from field damage to a single section of pipe. Water cannot spread to adjacent sections of pipe. The carrier pipe is continuously supported by the insulation eliminating the need for internal supports thereby minimizing stress.
- Reduces installation costs up to 75%: Positive slip joint assembly requires no welding, insulation, or coating of joints. Pipe runs are straight … no digging for expansion loops. Thermal efficiency may eliminate the need for some manholes.
- Cuts energy costs: Composite insulation fills the annulus space between the steel core pipe and casing. The combination of calcium silicate and polyisocyanurate foam insulation offers the best thermal efficiency available in a preinsulated system.
- Eliminates external galvanic corrosion: non-metallic fiberglass casing eliminates corrosion from ground water, stray electrical currents, and corrosive soil. No external coating or cathodic protection is needed.
