International Pipe for geothermal loops


According to International Pipe, its pre-manufactured loop is made in its facility by heat fusing two coils at one end with the one-piece “U-Bend,” allowing for a leak-free tight joint that provides continuous flow through. This eliminates fusing in the field. The pre-manufactured loop is ready to install at the jobsite. The narrow design allows for a narrower borehole, which requires less grout and annular space for more efficient drilling. As part of the company’s quality assurance program (ISO-9001-2008), all factory-made loops are capped, pressurized and tested by its trained experts before leaving the facility. International Pipe is a fully certified HDPE fusion welding training facility.
