Poloplast POLO-KAL NG
Vacuum Piping

Low weight, long-lasting, low price tag

System

POLO-KAL NG Vacuum is a Polypropylene (PP) multi-layer vacuum drainage system, comprising tubes and fittings with push-fit sockets and factory-inserted lip seals made of Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR). These pipes and fittings are commercial products with dimensions and quality according to EN 1451-1. The pipe consists of Polypropylene in the inner and outer layer. The middle layer additionally contains minerals for reinforcement. The fittings consist of Polypropylene and additional minerals for reinforcement.

1. External layer (PP)

  • The tough protective shell of the pipe
  • Sturdy and highly impact resistant

2. Middle layer (Mineral-reinforced PP)

  • Mineral-reinforced PP provides high stability and establishes the superior noise-insulating effect of POLO-KAL NG

3. Internal layer (PP)

  • Tremendous surface smoothness and resistance to chemical agents

Advantages

The advantages of POLO-KAL NG

  • Low weight reduces the ship´s total weight and enables easy transport and assembling.
  • High secure assembly due to its established push-fit system. No risk of fire caused by sparks when cutting or welding pipes.
  • Easy and rapid assembly of the factory-sealed push-fit system POLO-KAL NG.
  • Smooth inner surface prevents the accumulation of deposits. Saves time and costs due to elongated maintenance intervals.
  • Precision sealing system and precisely-shaped push-fit sockets. Allows rapid assembly and ensures durable connections.
  • 25 years of multi-layer technology experience. POLOPLAST has more than 25 years of knowledge and experience with the tried and tested 3-layer technology and 60 years of experience with above-ground drainage.
