Up to which max. heat capacity can I connect alpex pipes?

Please refer to the Technical information for detailed alpex performance and pressure loss tables for heating applications. We recommend that the following standard flow values are not exceeded when designing the pipework system:

Radiator connection pipe ≤ 0.3 m/s

Radiator distribution pipes ≤ 0.5 m/s

Heating riser and basement pipes ≤ 1.0 m/s

The max. pressure loss in the pipe must not exceed 2 mbar/m.
