+ Material Quality. LinkPlus is manufactured from high-grade (SS304) stainless steel, making it a superior choice for water delivery systems. The production process meets ISO 9001-2000, SF/ANSI-61 & 372 and the ICC-ES PMG-1313 standards and the PMG-1313 standard is in compliance with the 2015, 2012 and 2009 IPC, IRC and UPC codes as well as the 2010 and 2005 National Plumbing Code of Canada.
+ Improved Water Delivery. Because stainless steel is resistant to corrosion, rust, chemical leaching and other types of post contamination, it delivers fresher, cleaner water to homes and commercial buildings.
+ Sustainability. Linkplus thin-walled stainless steel pipe uses less raw material than other Stainless Steel Pipe. Stainless steel pipe limits environmental impact as compared to alternative pipe materials. It’s corrosion resistance minimizes the potential for product loss. Stainless steel is not a petroleum product. There is also less energy loss within stainless steel pipe due to it’s smooth, low friction interior, and stainless steel pipe is 100% recoverable either through recycling or reuse.
+ Savings. The LinkPlus system of stainless steel pipe and fittings, combined with our patented bump-joint connection process, provides an economical choice for a wide range of pipe installation applications. The LinkPlus system offers reduced unit weight, installation time, and energy requirements as well as superior life-cycle costs.
+ Reliability Our patented LinkPlus bump-joint connection system creates a secure joint. LinkPlus connections have been tested to be secure at pressures in excess of 300 psi, well above typical operating pressures in the 100 to 200 psi range. With our joining method, the pipe connections will not separate with temperature fluctuations or trapped air vibrations within a pipe network.
+ Durability. Stainless steel pipes have a low interior surface friction, remain stable at extreme temperatures, and are not affected by sunlight or ultra violet rays. This means that under typical conditions the performance of LinkPlus stainless steel pipe systems will easily exceed facilities with a 100 year lifespan.
+ Ease of installation. The LinkPlus USA metal pipe connection technology system is simple, fast, and easy to learn. This results in a substantial reduction in construction time, reducing overall project cost.
+ Easy maintenance and modification. Once installed, LinkPlus USA stainless steel pipe connections are easy to modify. Unlike methods for traditional piping systems, connections can be made and separated numerous times without damaging the pipe, seal or fitting.
+ High performance seals. LinkPlus stainless steel pipes utilize an organic silicone rubber compression seal in pipe joints and fittings. The seal is suitable for operation in temperatures up to 400˚F. The anticipated life of the seal is dependent upon the operating temperature. Test results indicate that a 180˚F operating temperature should result in a 100 year seal life expectancy.
+ Versatility. LinkPlus USA distributes a patented piping and fixture system that is manufactured to the highest standards. It is used widely in water pipes, gas pipelines, central air-conditioning systems, and solar water heating installations.
