Geothermal pipes for water based ground source heat pump systems receives certification

Aug. 15, 2013

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Centennial Plastics is the first company to earn certification to this standard.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — NSF International has certified Centennial Plastics Inc.’s CenFuse geothermal pipes to the American National Standard for Ground-Source Geothermal Piping Systems — NSF/ANSI Standard 358-1: Polyethylene Pipe and Fittings for Water-Based Ground-Source "Geothermal" Heat Pump Systems, according to a press release.

Centennial Plastics is the first company to earn certification to this standard, providing engineers, regulators and users assurance that its certified geothermal products meet minimum performance and safety requirements, stated the release.

Centennial Plastics’ CenFuse geothermal pipes are utilized as part of geothermal piping systems that provide heating or cooling by moving heat, rather than by creating heat like conventional systems (e.g. furnaces).

“Our CenFuse geothermal pipe certification to NSF/ANSI Standard 358-1, which includes both the pipe and the fittings, provides engineers, distributors and contractors assurance that not only the pipe but the entire ground loop heat exchanger, meets the safety and quality levels their customers demand,” said David Schnase, V.P. of Sales & Marketing for Centennial Plastics Inc.
