Aquatherm has announced the introduction of its new training program: Aquatherm Academy.
Aquatherm introduced North America to polypropylene-random pipe more than a decade ago, and worked with regulatory bodies to secure the numerous code approvals for its use in the United States. The company also introduced heat fusion training for applications beyond high-density polyethylene systems, bringing fusion to plumbing and mechanical systems inside buildings.
Polypropylene pipe is joined via heat fusion, which eliminates open flame and VOCs from the metal welding equation and creates virtually leak-free connections. Designing and installing with PP-R requires a bit of a different mindset than traditional piping materials, but most designers, pipefitters and plumbers adapt quickly with proper training.
For the last decade Aquatherm helped educate North American engineers, installers and facility managers on heat fusion techniques, and the company continues to offer extensive heat fusion courses (including socket fusion, butt fusion, electrofusion and others) to customers free of charge. These courses help ensure safe, consistent and profitable installations.
In addition, Aquatherm offers service and support before, during and after a project, thanks to a nationwide support network of regional sales managers, sales representatives and distribution partners.
The company recently announced the following changes/updates to its training offerings:
