Radpol introduces an 800mm radiation crosslinked joint
– Radiation crosslinked products that are made in our factory have the shape memory, so that they can be shrinked if proper heat is used and they get the shape of the element that it is shrinked on. This property has special meaning at district heating as radiation crosslinked joints adhere ideally to the pipe casing which assures exceptional durability and leakproofness. Its advantage against electro-welded joints has been appreciated in numerous district heating projects across Europe. We hope that the 800mm joints will sell as well as the DN500/710 ones – says Mr. Andrzej Sielski, vice-president of Radpol S.A.
– The process of crosslinking of such large parts made of polyethylene requires special construction of the electron accelerator. We have worked on it hard during the last two years. The results are appreciated by customers in a lot of European countries – Mr. Andrzej Sielski explains.
