Technopolymer (PP) fittings for air conditioning systems in marine environments

Technopolymer (PP) fittings for air conditioning systems in marine environments

Many innovations and products are in continuous development for the nautical sector, a market for which BUCCHI S.r.l. is expanding its range of products. A new range of polypropylene (PP) hose connector fittings with a variable diameter, dedicated specifically to the nautical sector: particularly resistant and long-lasting, these fittings are not subject to corrosion by salt or perishability in a marine environment, or to electrolytic corrosion, namely to stray currents.

This is an important innovation, because it launches on the nautical market a technopolymer product present up to now only in metal: with a nominal operating pressure of PN= 6bar and maximum operating temperature of 90°C, the polypropylene hose connector fittings by BUCCHI enjoy multiple advantages: lightness, affordability, guaranteed standards because realised by high quality performance moulding and not by machining like the current metallic ones.
Furthermore, in addition to absolute non-toxicity, the technopolymer PP fittings reduce condensation, requiring less insulation than metal fittings. For all the technical specifications on these and other products, download the new Marine components catalogue!
