The Tigris K5 System

The introduction of the Wavin Tigris K5/M5 press-fit system to the existing Tigris multilayer composite pipe (MLCP) family has revolutionized the way in which installations are tested within commercial projects. With a unique testing system, the Tigris K5/M5 has a range of benefits that make it the go-to product for plumbing installations involving drinking water, chilled water, heating systems, and underfloor heating systems. The Tigris K5/M5 is designed to prevent errors made during installation, resulting in a reliable and durable connection that has been tested beyond the requirements for a 50-year lifetime.

Pipelines have been historically tested using water pressure, this can potentially introduce a risk of water damage and legionella, a water-borne bacteria that can cause a potentially fatal lung infection in those who breathe in infected water droplets. Evidence suggests that this bacteria could develop if pipes aren’t effectively dried after water-pressure testing. The Tigris K5 system is designed for air-pressure testing, which tests the pipes effectively without the use of water. It employs an 80-decibel pressure leak alert, which sounds a high-pitched whistle when an unpressed fitting is detected.
