Tracpipe®


Postby htg engineer » Sun Jan 20, 2008 9:33 pm

When I sat my last gas exams in 2004 - the lecturer had a Tracpipe demonstration, I think this type of piping had just become available on the market for gas pipework installations.

I was just wondering if anyone on here had used it ? or uses it on a regular basis.

What's it like - any problems ?

Looked superb on the demonstration - too good to be true, could have saved alot of time and hard work on some on my gas installations.

Look forward to reading your views and comments.

Tracpipe is used for gas pipework installations, it's a flexible pipe that can be joined using special fittings.

It's basically a large roll of the pipe they use for the aneconda on the gas meter, So it can be bent by hand, is flexible and just like running minibore - you can lift 2 floorboards at opposite ends of a room and run a long length of pipe rather than having to join and bend copper pipe.
