WHAT IS PEX PIPE?

PEX pipe conducts the hot water from the outdoor wood boiler to the building to be heated. After the heat is released the water is returned back to the boiler to be reheated.

WHY SHOULD I USE PRE-INSULATED PEX PIPE?

Pex pipe is insulated and buried in the ground to keep the water hot. When the water enters the building it is used in a heat exchanger, baseboard heating or in-floor radiant heating.

SEE HOW WELL OUR PEX PIPES ARE INSULATED!

Wood Heating Solutions premium underground insulated pex tubing is custom made. It is thicker than most Pex Pipe so it loses very little heat per 100 feet. Our Pex Pipe 3 wrap and 5 wrap are foil wrapped around each layer of insulation to lock in the heat along. Plus there is insulation between the red and blue supply and return pipes. See our several different pex pipe sizes.

Test conducted in very wet weather outdoors December 30, 2010. Temperature outside was 39 degrees F.

Notes about insulated pipe testing:

Our tubing was tested above ground at 39 degrees F outside temperature on top of snow. Our heat loss is for both tubes combined inside of the tubing as we feel if you are going to test a product it needs to be for the entire product. If you are comparing this product to another that is doing single line testing, you either need to combine the heat loss for both of their lines or divide ours by 2. We tested with non heat load as reducing the temperature of the return line will also reduce the heat loss of the total product. We tested our tubing above ground. When you test buried line the heat loss will be less because the temperature of the ground around the buried line will vary. Most times you will find that ground in contact with the buried line will be 70-100 degrees, and at least 60 degrees 1″ away from the tile. This makes it very hard to get an accurate test because you have no accurate outer temperature to go by. Our tubing being tested at 39 degrees, resting on snow covered frozen ground and in wet conditions insures the maximum possible heat loss during the test.

RAW PEX PIPE PRICES

*Non Barrier pex tubing is either Red or Blue throughout the pipe (inside and outside).
*Oxygen Barrier pex tubing is either Red or Blue on the exterior but the inside will appear almost white.
(For example in the below picture:  the 3/4″ Pex is Non Barrier and the 1″ Pex is Oxygen Barrier where the inside is almost white.)
*All Pex tubing is pressure rated at 80 psi @ 200 degrees and 100 psi @ 180 degrees.
*Our pex complies with ASTM F876/F877 standards with ROHS certification.

“One of frequently asked questions we get is “can PEX be buried”? Yes, our PEX can be buried. The PEX tubing insulation that we sell is meant to be underground, as it is the protective outer tubing that surrounds the insulated PEX pipe.

Also, from talking with people about installing wood furnaces we know that many are curious if 2 inch PEX pipe is better than 1 inch. From our experience, 2 inch pipe allows too much water to run through and the best diameter is 1 inch PEX pipe. Remember, you can buy PEX tubing that is either insulated or raw. Make sure you are getting insulated pipe when using for outdoor wood furnace installation.”
