Hiline Aqua Cool - Pre-insulated Process Cooling Pipe System
A rigid pre-insulated polymer pipe system for process cooling applications
Hiline Aqua Cool is a complete, pre-insulated polymer pipe system specifically developed for the safe and efficient conveyance of cooling media for environment control and industrial process applications. Its bonded, composite construction offers outstanding thermal performance coupled with exceptional levels of reliability and operating at temperatures down to minus 40°C.

Service Pipe (PE100)
As standard, Hiline Aqua Cool is offered with a high-performance PE100 service pipe as PN10 rated (SDR17.6) or PN16 rated (SDR11) and fully in accordance with DIN 8074. PE100 can be offered ‘Kitemarked’ and as WRAS-approved material. PE100 material offers excellent mechanical performance, impact resistance and chemical resistance with a temperature range from -40° to +60°C. Hiline Aqua Cool can also be offered with alternative service pipe materials including PP and ABS.
Tough Outer Casing
Manufactured in HDPE to the requirements of the EN253 standards, the tough and resilient outer casing enables the pipe to be buried directly in the ground – so ensuring the network’s insulation integrity is maintained throughout its service life. When installing a network in contaminated ground, a barrier casing can also be specified.
A layer of CFC-free rigid polyurethane foam provides outstanding insulation properties, with values of 0.022 W/mK and with the insulation thickness according to the Series 1 requirements of EN 253. With the service pipe and outer casing being bonded together by the foam insulation, the system far out-performs other systems with an air gap. With this increased efficiency, comes lower heat loss and therefore a saving in both operational costs and carbon emissions.
For even greater efficiency, Hiline Aqua Cool pipe systems are also available with increased insulation thickness to series 2 and series 3.
Hiline Aqua Cool has a comprehensive range of pre-fabricated bends, tees, fittings and accessories that enable it to be adapted to meet all possible configurations – including transitions to other types of pre-insulated pipe systems – such as Hiline Steel or Hiline Flex. Hiline Aqua Cool can be offered as off-site prefabricated fittings and spool assemblies to meet a client’s bespoke requirements – significantly reducing installation time and cost.
Robust and Adaptable Joints
The Hiline Aqua Cool PE service pipe is perfect for thermoplastic welding techniques, including electro fusion, butt fusion and socket fusion.
The HDPE outer casing can be joined using the proven Hiline range of wrap-around heat-shrink or electro-fusion couplings to ensure the very tightest of joints to protect against the ingress of ground water.
Trace Heating and Electronic Surveillance Options
All of the Hiline Aqua Cool range is available with the option of integrated trace heating cables to protect the media temperate and electronic surveillance systems that warn of moisture ingress into the insulation.
Hiline Aqua pre-insulated pipes and fittings for thermal utilities are manufactured within an ISO 9001 accredited environment, generally in accordance with the requirements of EN 253 and in compliance with EN 448, EN 488, EN 489 and EN 13941
