Alfa Associates brings anti-freezing water pipes to Valley


Srinagar, Dec 15: If ruptures in GI pipes during winters has become a headache for you, here is some good news for Valleyites. Alfa Associates has introduced stainless steel plumbing solutions from Jindal that guarantee hygienic water supply and can resist the temperature up to minus 40 degrees Celsius.
 Alfa Associates, authorized distributor for Jindal stainless steel Pipe solutions in JK, in a statement said the new system not only scales down the installation cost but offers a maintenance free setup that guarantees leakage proof plumbing- a common problem arising in the traditional GI and plastic pipes.
 “Ruptures in GI pipes can be a real headache in winters and our outdoor pipes are common culprit to the freezing temperatures, even with our insulation solutions they do occur,” it said, adding that the worst part of the existing system is a continuous rundown and corrosion that not only dampens the fluid pressure, but becomes a cause of leakages and water pollution.
 “Stainless steel plumbing is the best solution we found as both GI and polymer based pipes do come with disadvantages of leakages and the usage of these stainless steel pipes helps to overcome these problems,” it said.
 “The material cost can be a bit higher, but the installation costs are very low and pull down the overall costs for a customer,” it said.
 “In this a plumber needing only a few tools to install the pipes and the whole of the fixtures is very light weight and uses press fit technology with only few tools needed to make an assembly at a site.”
 In the traditional GI system threading of pipes or thermal jointing mostly in plastic pipes was used, but in this a hydraulic or electromechanical device presses the pipes and its fittings together to make leak proof joints that not only save time, but labour.
 According to the management of Alfa Associates, the other advantages of this plumbing system is that the company is calibrated in such a way that pressure drop is very least as the smooth stainless steel reduces the friction of the fluids, thus pressure. This kind of fixture is recommended for food industry mostly dealing with fruit drinks and milk.
