Kessel - The name you can trust in backwater protection!

Kessel - the name you can trust in Backwater Protection
Backwater damage is a threat to millions of homeowners and builders, and never has the damage caused by flooding and backwater been as costly as today. However, many builders and homeowners remain unaware of the fact that they can and must protect themselves from backwater. Local authorities and insurance companies require such protection. Current climate changes, bring with them sudden torrential rainfall and flash flooding, especially in the summer months, requiring developers, local authorities, builders and homeowners to consider backwater protection. Backwater protection helps to maintain the value of properties and buildings in the long term. KESSEL and IPS Flow Systems are proactive in offering guidance in the use of backwater protection.



KESSEL sets standards in backwater protection


With the new premium backwater valve series Staufix SWA, Staufix FKA and Pumpfix F, KESSEL is setting standards in protection against backwater and flooded basements. This means that installation professionals and home owners both profit from a flexible modular system,  innovative installation, operation and maintenance solutions and the very highest quality and safety of the KESSEL backwater valves.

AGRU GmbH - Leading the Way in PE100-RC


PE100-RC for Outstanding Crack Resistance




Agru continue to lead the world in the production of high-quality piping systems, semi-finished products, concrete protection liners and lining systems.  Their expertise in producing engineering plastics components and developing tailored solutions ensure that AGRU is present in virtually every industrial sector.

PE100-RC material is now readily available in Pipe, Fittings & Sheet from IPS Flow Systems in the UK and Ireland.

Modified PE100, which until recently was only used for special customer-specific applications, is now used throughout the entire AGRULINE product range. The main technical advantage of PE100-RC is that it is significantly more resistant to slow crack growth. This saves costs during installation, improves safety, and extends service life.

AGRU's latest development for fabrication and tank construction in sheets and welding rods made of PE100-RC is characterized by the excellent stress crack resistance.

PE100-RC material requirements

The full-notch creep test (FNCT as per ISO 16770) is a recognised test method for determining resistance to slow crack growth in polyethylene. After a wetting agent has been applied, a notched test specimen is exposed to tensile stress at a high temperature (80 °C). The minimum service life for PE 100-RC fittings must be > 8760 hours acc. to PAS 1075. In contrast to this, the required minimum service life for PE 100 components acc. to DVS 2205-1 is just 300 hours.

Agru PE100-RC - For Excellent Quality and Safety
