Topic: Hydronic Piping with PEX

Speaker: Devin A. Abellon, P.E.


Hydronic Piping with PEX: Pros and Pitfalls While the use of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) piping has been widespread in residential applications for some time, building owners, contractors and engineers are moving towards it as a cost-effective and flexible alternative to conventional metallic piping systems on large-scale commercial projects. PEX has become a proven system solution that can reduce both material and labor costs while providing the reliability and peace of mind that building owners demand. When considering PEX, however, it is important that contractors and engineers understand not only the benefits but the challenges and potential pitfalls.

This seminar will examine the following:

  1. What is crosslinked polyethylene (PEX)?
  2. What are the different types of PEX available in the commercial marketplace?
  3. What are the advantages of PEX compared to conventional metallic systems?
  4. How does a PEX design differ from a metallic pipe design?
  5. What are common design and installation best practice
