Our Mid-Level PEX Plates. The aluminum plate increases heat transfer vs. steel plates. Unless you are in a moderate climate, you want to use Heat Transfer Plates to; increase heat transfer, speed up system response, lower necessary system water temperature. Without a Heat Transfer Plate you will need to run a system at 160 - 180 deg F. With a Heat Transfer Plate temperatures run 120 - 140 deg F.
PEX Plates are the traditional way to install PEX in underfloor and sandwich applications. These plates are a stamped aluminum plate measuring 5" x 24". You'll need about four plates per 10' of PEX. Follow Watts' Installation Guidelines very carefully when using these plates.
