The next PHCPPros webinar will be sponsored and presented by IPEX. Taking place on September 29 at 1:00pm(CST), the webinar will be on "UL 1738 Flue Gas Venting: Safeguard Against The Dangers Of Carbon Monoxide" and presented by Matthew Tucci, Market Development Specialist, Flue Gas Venting, at IPEX USA LLC.
In his presentation, Tucci will focus on the IPEX System 1738. System 1738 is one of the first engineered PVC Flue Gas Venting (FGV) System certified to UL 1738. The safety concern today is in the use of plumbing Solid Wall Schedule 40 or Cell Core DWV pipe and fittings in FGV applications. These products were never intended to be used in FGV applications, but they have been chosen because they are often the least expensive materials available. Simply put, plumbing DWV products are not designed to meet the life safety standards of FGV applications. System 1738 is a system consisting of pipe, fittings, termination kits, and cement manufactured to strict quality standards and is intended for flue gas venting.
Tucci's focus within IPEX is the planning and implementation of market development activities such as educating market stakeholders, participating in FGV Codes & Standards Committees and working with customers. He has previously worked as an Application Engineer providing technical expertise for piping systems in the plumbing and industrial sectors. Tucci received his bachelor’s degree in Industrial Chemical Engineering from Western University and is a certified Engineer-In-Training (EIT) working towards his professional designation.
