Widely used in chemical distribution systems for the delivery of pharmaceutical grade purified water and DI water, using hot water, steam chemical or ozone sanitisation. PVDF pipes, fittings and valves from GF Pipings Systems are sold under the SYGEF brand.
The multilayer push-fit system for installations requiring high bending stiffness. iFIT is an innovative installation system featured with the unique adapter module technology for plumbing and heating. Thanks to its proven modular system, iFIT enables identical installation options compared to conventional systems, but using 50% less system components. This results in low stocking costs, allows low inventories and maximum flexibility. The fast and simple connection technology and the possibility to apply polybutene- or multi-layer composite pipes meets the highest economic standards.
Simple and contactless flow measurement with the new U1000 V2 from GF Piping Systems
Wherever liquids circulate in a piping system, flow measurements are usually essential. Whereas conventional flow meters are laborious to fit into the piping as a fitting or by borehole, the new U1000 V2 model GF Piping Systems' ultrasonic technology enables the collection of measurements via contact less and uncomplicated installation to occur. The benefits are clear; the measuring system installation requires no production interruptions, provides accurate results, operates cost-effectively and supports digital interfaces.
Whether in heating water, drinking water, or sanitary technology, in industrial manufacturing companies, swimming pools, or in municipal wastewater treatment – piping systems are used across all sectors in a wide range of processes. To ensure their smooth operation, relevant parameters such as temperature, pressure and flow – are recorded with measuring systems. Flow in particular, is critical for operators and owners of supply and production systems. The flow is not just a billing-relevant parameter it also serves as an input variable for control systems and provides information on the performance of industrial or chemical processes.
"Across many sectors, oversized flow meters are still used frequently. Requiring installation by specialists and the costly interruption of production for retrofitting," says Yannic Baeuchle, Product Manager for Automation at GF Piping Systems. This not only causes unnecessary costs, but also places demands on workers. Additionally, invasive sensors encounter aggressive media and are often proven to be less durable.
GF Piping Systems, the piping and measuring technology specialist, tackles this problem with the contact less flow meter U1000 V2. The product provides reliable results and can be used cost-effectively for years without requiring entry into the piping system or interruption of the production process.
The U1000 V2 ultrasonic flow meter always fits U1000-main
Even during installation, the U1000 V2 has a decisive advantage over conventional measuring systems: The device can be retrofitted easily and within 2 minutes – even during ongoing production without causing disruption. Whereas retrofitting leads to costly interruptions and entails a great deal of effort, due to changes in length, borehole, and mounting work, the U1000 V2 can be installed without entering the piping system and does not require specialists.
The U1000 V2 flow-measuring device has been designed in such a way that it can be used for a wide variety of applications across all sectors. Thanks to the user-friendly clamp-on mounting on the outside of the pipe, the device can be used flexibly on different pipe diameters from 22 mm to 180 mm. It provides accurate measurement results, regardless of what medium or piping material is involved or where the flow meter is installed.
In operation, the U1000 V2 excels by its immediate operational readiness and user-friendly handling. The system can be programmed in a few steps, and all-important parameters can be entered quickly, thanks to the clearly arranged, large display. When it comes to maintenance and servicing, the U1000 V2 benefits from the fact that, unlike other conventional solutions, it never encounters liquids, and the maintenance and servicing costs are correspondingly lower. This also ensures product quality, since neither the medium nor the production process are affected by the contactless measuring methods.
The ideal solution for every piping system
The U1000 V2 provides exact, contactless flow measurement across all sectors. "The flow measuring device integrates smoothly into complex systems, processes and can be combined with existing pipelines, fittings, valves and automation technology elements from GF Piping Systems," explains Baeuchle. By integrating the U1000 V2 into the operating sequence, costs as well as overall complexity of the system reduces significantly.

COOL-FIT 4.0 Launched
Safe, efficient cooling has never been so easy
COOL-FIT 4.0 is a complete system made of factory pre-insulated pipes, fittings, valves and accessories for secondary cooling with brine, glycol and ethanol as well as water in the range of -50 °C to +60 °C.
COOL-FIT 4.0 shares the advantages of all COOL-FIT products compared to metal systems:
100 % maintenance-free
The media pipe, insulation and jacket are made of high-quality plastic and therefore remain corrosion and maintenance free throughout the system’s entire operating life. This reduces expensive downtime and lowers maintenance costs and personnel requirements.
100 % reliable
The smooth interior surface of the medium pipe, typical for plastic systems, prevents deposits. The result: no loss of pressure over the lifetime of the system. COOL-FIT remains as efficient as on its first day of operation.
65 % less weight
COOL-FIT is significantly lighter than traditional metal systems and therefore places lower structural demands on buildings and supporting structures. The use of heavy transport aids can be reduced at the construction site.
50 % faster installation
Factory pre-insulation eliminates the need for traditional insulation after installation, which often requires a second team onsite. You receive finished and permanently pre-insulated components, ready for installation.
30 % higher energy efficiency
The low thermal conductivity of plastics and the highly efficient foam insulation increases the energy efficiency of your system. This helps to save energy costs.
