The Westlund/Emco Group is a key Urecon distributor with sales of our product throughout Canada and parts of the US. Applications include Mining, Industrial, Municipal, District Energy and HVAC.
Urecon’s insulated pipe is insulated with rigid polyurethane foam, the best insulation commercially available on the market today. Founded in 1969, Urecon has been pre-insulating pipe with its void free U.I.P.® insulation process since 1972 out of St. Lazare, Quebec and since 1981 out of our Calmar, Alberta plant. With our system, the pipe is pre-insulated in our factory and arrives on the job site ready to install.
Urecon’s patented insulation process ensures a homogenous, void free layer of rigid polyurethane foam insulation, bonded directly to the entire pipe surface. Our insulation system may be applied to virtually any type of core pipe on the market today, from 13 mm (½ in) to 1200 mm (48 in) in diameter, with or without electric tracing conduit. Millions of meters of Urecon pre-insulated pipe have been installed for both freeze prevention (often with our THERMOCABLE® electric tracing system) in cold climates; centrally chilled water piping systems in temperate and tropical climates; and hot water / low pressure steam piping for process and district energy. With the proper outer protective jacket, our pipes may be installed either buried or above ground.
In any extreme climate, Urecon pre-insulated pipe is the system of choice.
Urecon proudly distributes EN253 (European standard) hot water district heating pipe products throughout North America. Headquartered in Denmark, Logstor is the world’s pre-eminent producer of pre-insulated pipe systems employing over 1400 people in 9 production facilities.
