BOW OXYPEX tubing is designed specifically for hydronic heating and hydronic radiant closed loop heating applications. This tubing has an oxygen outer barrier liner which makes it ideal for hydronic and radiant floor heating applications.
The function of the outer liner is to limit the oxygen permeation rate through the pipe wall. Oxypex tubing can also be used in snow melting applications. This tubing Complies with DIN 4726 as endorsed by the Hydronics Institute. Oxypex is made to CTS (Copper Tube Size) outside dimensions and an SDR (Standard Dimension Ratio) of 9 and is available in the following nominal sizes: 3/8", 1/2", 5/8" 3/4" and 1". It is available in coils up to 1200' long which are “footmarked”.
