Atlanta Molecor Advantages:
• Unbeatable Impact Resistance – Atlanta Molecor pipes have a high resistance to shock. This means that are minimized breakages during installation or during on-site trials caused by dropping or by impacts from stones.
Furthermore, Molecular Orientation prevents the propagation of cracks and scratches and eliminates the risk of rapid crack behavior. The result is a spectacular increase in the product’s useful life.
• High short - and long-term hydrostatic resistance – Atlanta Molecor pipes offer a resistance to internal pressure of up to two times the nominal pressure (32 bars in PN16 bar pipes or 400 psi in PN200 psi), which means they can bear sporadic excessive pressure such as water hammers and other malfunctions in the network.
Moreover, the material creep behavior is very low, ensuring the durability of the pipe working at nominal pressure for over a hundred years.
• Excellent response to water hammers - TOM® pipes offer lower celerity than other piping systems (four times less than ductile iron pipes), which means less water hammers caused by sudden variations in water volume and pressure. This reduces and almost eliminates the possibility of breakage during opening and closing in the water network and when pumping gets under way, protecting every component of the network.
