ThermoPEX® is a flexible pre-insulated piping system that saves energy and maximizes system efficiency. ThermoPEX consists of two 1-inch oxygen barrier Central PEX® pipes or two 1-1/4 inch oxygen barrier PEX pipes (supply and return) that are insulated with high-density urethane insulation and a thick, durable, waterproof, UV-protected polyethylene outer jacket. The corrugated design allows flexing for easier installation. ThermoPEX is the best insulated piping system available for your outdoor wood furnace.
Oxygen barrier Central PEX is a high-density, cross-link pipe, rated for 180 degrees F at 100 psi. It is compatible with standard PEX insert fittings which cost much less than competitors’ compression fittings. PEX pipes are marked to easily identify supply and return lines. Insulation
The high-density urethane insulation provides the ultimate control against heat loss. The high thermal efficiency of the urethane allows for a smaller overall size than some competitors, and provides lower heat loss per foot. The special proprietary formulation of the high density urethane insulation used in ThermoPEX provides ultimate control against heat loss.
The ThermoPEX high-density polyethylene outer jacket is thick, durable and seamless. It provides the necessary protection and is waterproof. It is corrugated for flexibility and can be easily routed around obstacles. It is also UV-protected and can be installed above ground. It eliminates concerns with ground moisture or water affecting insulating properties of the urethane insulation.
