Latin America/Caribbean

The term “URECON” is synonymous with pre-insulated pipe for district cooling throughout the tropical and sub-tropical climates of Latin America and the Caribbean.  Used mostly in resort hotel developments to distribute centrally chilled water for air conditioning - our highly efficient, factory applied polyurethane insulation reduces heat gain from warm soil (or ambient air temperature).  This results in considerable energy savings for the end-user.  Urecon pipe is also used for efficient movement of potable and domestic hot water required in hotel resort projects.

Urecon's unique method of insulating 'over the bell' of socket joined PVC and CPVC pipe means no more bare pipe joints or expensive joint kits. See Bell x Spigot or Push On Joints.

Introducing UreconBlue and UreconRed … made exclusively for tropical climates.

Agua Helada (Climas Tropicales y Sub-tropicales)

En paíces de climas tropicales y sub-tropicales, pueden utilizarse tubos pre-aislados para la distribución de agua helada en sistemas de aire acondicionado central. En estos climas tropicales, el aislamiento con poliuretano resulta muy eficaz al reducir la ganancia de calor proveniente del suelo o de la temperature ambiental. El método exclusivo de URECON de aislar totalmente las juntas de PVC y CPVC significa que se eliminan tanto las juntas sin aislantes como los costosos paquetes de empalme.
