Distributor Brymec and air-conditioning, ventilation and refrigeration specialist Principal Cooling chose >B< MaxiPro for an air conditioning and ventilation upgrade at London Luton Airport. 


Passengers, staff and air crew at one of the UK’s busiest airports, London Luton Airport (LLA), can enjoy a much improved environment thanks to a major air conditioning and ventilation upgrade due for completion in early 2019.

The two year project, begun in March 2017, will see a complete refit in areas such as Arrivals and Departures, Immigration, International and Domestic Baggage, the Central Screening Area as well as communications rooms, goods in/waste away and the terminal building.

The installation has been carried out by air-con, ventilation and refrigeration specialist Principal Cooling, which used 700 of Conex Bänninger’s innovative >B< MaxiPro press fittings.

Dan Wild, UK Business Unit Director for Conex Bänninger, said: “With millions of passengers passing through London Luton Airport each year, and the numbers continuing to grow, it’s important they have a pleasant environment to begin or end their journeys in.

“We’re delighted that >B< MaxiPro was put forward for this large and prestigious project, the latest in a fast-growing list of major ACR installations in the UK, Europe and other markets around the globe.”

>B< MaxiPro is specially designed for ACR applications and as a flame-free jointing system is quick and easy to install, negating the need for a hot works permit.

The fittings provide a secure, permanent leak-proof joint without the need for oxyacetylene work so there is no risk of fire. They also negate the need for a nitrogen purge of the joint.

>B< MaxiPro was put forward by building services components distributor Brymec, who worked closely with Principal Cooling.
